Rated 2.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works Great Installs easily, seals well, and does the job. We like this one so well, we are ordering a second one for the other tank! November 26, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by poor quality control?? Bought new heater to replace one that died an ugly death. Horses are mini-bulldozers with teeth!! Problem is the nut to secure to tank will not thread on either to the new one or the old heater. Thankfully I had the nut from the old one and it fit perfectly. Just for s.... and grins I will send nut back with note. November 12, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by tough time It just got cold here in CO so I finally got to try the two I bought... they both leak... tried plumbers tape, still leaked, tightened with pliers which slowed the leak to 'good enough'. Also, the water gets to a very warm temp so I'm not sure if they are shutting off... very frustrating, but at least my playful horses can't get to them! October 25, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by good product Liked this heater better when the neck was bigger diameter. That keeps heater from moving and leaking. It also allows it to use larger and heavier washer and lock nut from trough plug. They seem to last. Had to buy 2new heaters this year after 5 or 6 years.we'll see what quality the new ones are?

I have used them in the past and they work for me with my horses. I needed to replace one that stopped working last winter.

Need, on a little discount price.

I have had this deicer for years in our horses' water stock tank and may need to replace it next winter. It works great, especially through this past long Indiana Winter!!

Can you use the drain plug de-icer with a heavy duty extension cord and does it have to be grounded?
A shopper on Oct 31, 2015
Best Answer: The manufacturer does not recommend using an extension cord. That being said, I know of very few people who don't use an extension cord. I make sure that the connections are protected and waterproof and use at least a 15 amp one. The plug is 3 pronged, so yes, grounded. Grounding when electricity is combined with water is always a good idea.

how much does it cost a month to us this deicer?
Tina M on Feb 19, 2014
Best Answer: While it is not possible for me to pinpoint the exact cost of electricity for the deicer, I would guess that, depending upon your Kw/hr costs, it will run about $15 to $20 per month for continuous operation. I have multiple units for different pastures and my electric bill doesn't vary by much, so I believe that the numbers are correct.

Does this turn on and off when water temp reaches a certain temp?
A shopper on Nov 10, 2015
Best Answer: yes it is automatically temp controlled . I believe it's 32 degrees. I have always used this type of heater in my troughs. Love them. Make sure to use a good heavy gauge extension cord,from your electrical source.
