Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great I have several of them in Michigan. Three of them are on their 4th winter. I do keep them in insulated water troughs that are old picnic coolers. I also have them with extension cords but no longer than 6 feet. I do not have any rods involved. Only wish is , that the power cord was wrapped with wire protector, I have had to fashion my own.

Can this be secured to the inside of a plastic or metal tank just below the water line?

Yes. As long as the unit stays submerged in water.

Asked by: diodosio
This deicer will cost no more than $.30/day. That assumes a cost/kwh of $.10 from your electric company (could be more or less), and 24 hours of continuous operation (which won't happen). A quick formula for this is ((Watts/1000) x Cost/kWh) x # of hours per day. So in this case it would be 250 watts divided by 1000 = 0.25 x $.10 x 24 = $.30/day. If only run 12 hours per day, it would cost $.15/day. Hope this helps and thank you for purchasing our products.

I have metal trough. Do I need a rod in the ground for this.

Asked by: Niko22
Yes, we strongly recommend grounding the tank or trough when using any de-icer.
