Love these tubs
I like in a moderate climate where the water only freezes occasionally. I use these buckets to keep backup water in the barn just in case. Also useful to dump the ice from frozen buckets into to melt it for use the next day. Saves hauling more water

Excellent winter tank
I like that these are easy to take apart to clean. They are made of heavier plastic than some that are out there. I use these for one or two horses or cows rather than a bigger tank and I can save a bit of money on my elec. bill. Have used them for about 5 years and they seem to be holding up well with no problems.

works great
I just bought this bucket a few weeks ago. We have had only a couple of cold nights so far. It's been warm durring the day. The bucket really got the water warm, so much so my horses wouldn't drink it. I don't know if it was shutting off when it was supposed to because it was cold that night & warm the next day. I also use the smaller heated buckets in the stalls. I've had them for a few years now, they still work great. Just the way they should. I'm confident the larger one will too, I just don't think it has been cold enough to really see how good it does yet.

Nice product
I like the fact that you can change the element if it burns out.

Great price on a winter essential!
I bought one to replace my old bucket already 10 years old and still working. Just in case it goes out I cannot live without this heated water bucket in the winter. Manageable size...not too big not too small. Worth every penny in avoiding the hassle/risk of frozen water buckets. Durable! Fast shipping!

Great product, well made, works great
I love this product! My mare is a big drinker. For years I have used the submurged deicer and while it kept the tank from freezing, she was only drinking half as much as usual in the winter. This warmer keeps the water slightly warm. I am amazed at how much she is drinking! I kind of thought she drank more in the warm months because she was hot. I was wrong she's drinking just as much now! Love this product!

Heater didn't work
Arrived quickly and everything was as expected, but the heat element doesn't work.Customer service is supposed to be sending a new element via the manufacturer, but it hasn't arrived yet. Hopefully it works.

I use the 16 gallon heated water buckets, and like them very much
KELLY C on Apr 13, 2016
These are handy to have in the winter. they are easier to clean than the bigger tubs. My one complaint would be that they keep the water too warm. My mini will not drink from it when its that warm so I have to unplug during the day.
STEPHANIE F on Dec 24, 2015
So I don't have to break ice and remove from tub and so my horses won't be drinking ice water.

i live in Northern Ontario, the winters can get to around minus thirty-forty Celsius which is around minus 20-40 Fahrenheit. I'm worried that this bucket won't be able to hold up to the cold winters, anyone in Canada (or somewhere colder) successfully use this product?
Sofia on Aug 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: hen water temperatures fall to (approximately) 35 degrees, the heater will turn on. It will then shut off automatically until water temperature falls toward freezing.

Has anyone used this with an extension cord? I know that it says not to, but I don't have any outlets near my pasture, so I would have to run an extension cord out to it.
Alison P on Oct 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I use these every winter with an extension cord but it is a heavy duty contractor type cord and I use the protective covers where they plug into one another for weather protection. I also try to elevate the connection off of the ground because I live in rainy Western Washington. I have had no problems with them but do not use a regular household extension cord. SJC - Washington
Is this a good bucket for goats to have water on cold days?
A shopper on Jan 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely! I bought this for my horse's last year & it works like a champ. I also use the smaller heated buckets in their stalls. It sure beats breaking up ice before going to work. The large bucket keeps the water almost too warm, so you have to add some cold. Mine is in the barn, so it may be different keeping it outside.
Does the heat turn off if the weather is above freezing or is the heat always on?
sandra s on Oct 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This tub keeps the water pretty warm so no, it must stay on above freezing BUT there is a regulator, so it does turn off at maybe 50. We do not notice a huge electrical increase when we have 8 tubs running, so I do think they are pretty efficient.
How warm does it make the water?
Kim R on Jan 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The water stays perfect for drinking. It just makes sure the water doesn’t freeze. My goats do well drinking the water my horses love it as well helps stop colic cause they drink enough water during the cold winter.
read one of reviews saying this tub needs to be grounded with copper wire. is that accurate? or can you just plug it in and use it as is? . They said horses were getting shocked and wouldn't drink until it was grounded
lisa b on Feb 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The tub comes with a three prong grounded plug. You can just plug it in and use it. Horses love the heated water and have no hesitation in drinking from the tub. I would buy another if I had the need.
Why can't you use an extension cord?
Sharon W on Nov 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I believe they have to add that just as a safety thing--I totally have to use one--I would say, though,I use a heavy duty one, so as not to take chances of overloading a line. Buying and using this tub has been hands-down the best thing I ever did for my boys--even the barn cats love it!!
Can I use this to soak my horse's hay? Concerned about the heating element being inside the bucket.
Kathianne S on Dec 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I feel that there is no reason for concern. The heating element is not fully exposed in the water. The heating element is surrounded by a slotted enclosure made of the same material as the rest of the tub.
Is the plastic BTA free?
A shopper on Oct 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't know if it is BTA. My horses have used this container every winter and have been fine.
