Have used these in the past and they work great. I get the 750 Watt one and they work just as well as the 1500 watt kind you can buy at TSC, Rural king ect, but they don't put as much strain on my limited electrical system. Plus they are cheaper to run. Come with a plastic clip to discourage my horses who like to pull heaters out.

Like the fact that I can change to floating or sinkable.

I ordered the 500 watt deicer (not the 1500) in hopes that it will do exactly what it is supposed to do; keep the horses water ice free. I read a lot of reviews and decided on this one due to the good reviews it received.

How long is cord and can you add extension cords to it ?
Allison W on Oct 10, 2014
Best Answer: I'm not sure about the length of the cord, so I have no answer to that. I believe it is at least 6 feet. As for the extension cord, it tells you repeatedly in the instructions not to use one, but I did not have time to run a line out to the trough this past winter so I did. However, I grounded the circuit to a spare ground rod beside my water trough using a 3 to 2 prong grounded adaptor and sealed the connections up using rubber splicing tape. This was using a heavy gauge outdoor extension cord. I had to add the ground because with the extension cord the ground was grounding was inadequate and the heater was leaking a little bit less than 1 volt into the water. My horses refused to drink from it. I also made sure the connection between the extension cord and the heater cord was waterproof. Best only used for emergencies until you can get a qualified electrician out to install a GFCI outlet. I considered having to break 2 to 3 inches of ice every morning for the horses to drink an emergency.

Can you use these in a galvanized metal water bucket?
canpren on Dec 2, 2014
Best Answer: Probably, but if there isn't much open surface water to drink, your animal might be more likely to play w it. The plastic float and cage does crunch and splinter from a horse's bite. You never want to run out of water and run the element in the air, so the bucket would have to have ample volume.

thermostat operation? what temp does it kick on and what temp does it quick off?
joe M on Sep 22, 2015
Best Answer: I don't remember exactly but I know it was stated somewhere in the write-up or the literature. It seems like it came on in the upper 30s. I do remember that it goes off at about 60. I love it! It has been very reliable. I've had mine for about two years. The horses have knocked the cover off of it a couple of time but it snaps right back on. Before I got this, I was hauling hot water every morning in buckets from the house down to the barn to thaw the barrels and by night I would have to thaw them again. Now I just check to make sure the horses haven't pulled it out of the barrels.
