This for sure is one of the BEST HEATED BUCKETS on the market, especially priced less than others. This bucket when you put your hand in you actually can feel the warmth of the water. Seems to me the other buckets just keep the water from freezing. I know for one of my old mini donkeys, that has sensitive teeth, the warm water bucket is a blessing. Thanks Farm Innovators for making a great product!

How long is the cord?
Diane M on Jan 25, 2014
Best Answer: The cord is 4' long. I have drilled a hole through my stall front and pull the cord through and then plug in. I have 2 stalls with the outlet within reach for this bucket, the other two I have an 8' grounded extension cord that I have to use with it. Do not let the buckets run dry while plugged in, it will burn the heater out. Great buckets!

Does this bucket come in other colors?
A shopper on Dec 8, 2014
Best Answer: Nope...just the color they show on the website. I personally like blue because you can tell when it's clean. The green hides a lot of hay and junk in the bottom that you don't see unless you empty or use a sieve like I do to scoop it daily.

if you forget to plug in a full bucket of water and it freezes it ok to just plug it in the next day to thaw out the frozen water?
shelly c on Jan 22, 2014
Best Answer: I did have a situation where the bucket was unplugged unbeknownst to me. Since it wasn't frozen solid, I broke the ice, emptied the bucket and refilled with water. I didn't want my animals to have to wait for the bucket to thaw the ice since I had no idea how long that would take. Hope this helps.

The cord is so short, how do you plug them in without using an extension cord?
Glenna V on Dec 8, 2013
Best Answer: Hi,

I have outlets outside of each stall in the isle way and cut a hole through the stall wall. Then I feed the cord through that into the outlet, they work great. My wish is that the cords were detachable so I could clean the buckets out more easily, but it sure beats frozen buckets.

When I built my barn I had the length of the cord in mind and arranged the outlets to be directly behind where I was going to hang the bucket in the stall.

does the water remain unfrozen at -30 degrees?
A shopper on Dec 28, 2015
Best Answer: I love my buckets!! I think these are better then the blue ones since the cord can be stored under it in the summer so the bucket can be used all season. I had my horses in uninsulated barn one winter and it for sure was at least -25 ( my face froze pretty quick) and the water stayed nice and warm. The thermostat function works so when it's around 40 degrees Fahrenheit in the barn the water doesn't feel warm but once the temps drop the water is nice and my horses love drinking it. Great product would hate winter without them .

What happens if the horse drinks all the water? Does it shut off automatically or does the barn catch on fire? I feel nervous about the safety of these things.
jmk55 on Apr 25, 2016
Best Answer: I haven't had an issue with it so far. I don't think it shuts off completely when all the water is gone because there's been a few times I've come out when the bucket was empty and it was warm, but not hot. I haven't ever had it get hot to the touch so there's no way the heat would cause a fire or burn you or your horse. It seems like it just warms the bucket to 60 degrees and shuts off until the buckets temp drops back down to 35.

Can poultry nipples be attached to the bottom without interfering with the heating element??
Mary V on Sep 27, 2015
Best Answer: I believe the heating element is in the whole bottom of the bucket. It is not exposed at all. I would imagine puncturing the bottom of the bucket (two layers- inside of the bucket, heating element and then bottom plastic) would interfere with the element and possibly be a fire hazard. I would not attempt manipulating this bucket but it does work excellently as a horse water bucket! Good luck!
