One heater is keeping my 70 gallon tank lukewarm
I absolutely love these heaters! I have two, and my 70-gallon tank is currently being kept lukewarm in -2 degree weather with just one heater on an extension cord. I was nervous about these after hearing horror stories of horses being electrocuted with other drop-in heaters, but this one has plastic protecting its cord so horses won't mess with the wiring and the plastic cage around the heater is very sturdy. I highly recommend these!

works great, saves a lot of hassle in winter
Never had a problem with it...saves me a lot of anguish with the freezing water issue in winter. Note that it only comes on when it is cold...I was a bit disturbed when I first plugged it in and touched it...it did not heat up. But the customer service person told me to stick it in the freezer for a bit, then plug it in...yes, then it started heating up.

Pail De-icer
these worked great this winter, i had 2 of them in use, both in 120gal tanks and never froze over.

Works as designed
Only wish this was not a constant on. Needs a temperature on/off at 35 degrees; purchased a separate switch for this.

good little de-icer
I use this heater to prevent my mini horse's water from freezing in the winter. In South Jersey, winter temps can be below zero, but mostly in the single digits to 20s & this heater does a good job. I have it in a rubber 30 gallon tank. I can't promise it will deice a 40 gallon tank, but it does a good job on my 30 gallon tank. It's cheap to run, is 1 piece, and my mini hasn't managed to break it. My best advice is to buy 1 heater. If it doesn't do the job, use 2 or get a 30 gallon tank.

Mis-labeled as a heater
Don't buy these if you think they are going to warm the water, all they do is prevent the water from freezing. They need to label these correctly

Going on it's 2nd Winter
We live outside Atlanta and yes, sometimes it can get cold! This is a great little heater. Our water never has ice in it and it does the job inexpensively. Our water is stationed right outside the barn and the cord slides under a window and into the tank. It comes with a cord clip and the animals don't bother it.

Great Value
These heaters work very well in a 30 gal. tank at temperatures in the teens. I love the fact that I'm not paying to run 1500 watt heaters. The cord clip that attaches to the side of the tank is brilliant. Normally I would have to install a small clamp and then be concerned that my horses would find the sharp end of the screw. No longer.I elected to take the the top cage off and submerse the heaters rather than let them float. My horse like to play with anything I leave around. The heaters are so light that the electrical cord tends to tilt the heater off its base at the bottom of the tank. I would recommend a slightly heavier base or zip-tie on some form of ballast to keep them sunk and level.

I have two of these already and need another. Impressed that those two have lasted through 3 winters. They are working well over the longevity of a plug in bucket that has 'died' after only two winters.

will work for a 40 gallon tank?
A shopper on Nov 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I put two of these in my 100 gallon tank last winter and, except the bottom 2 inches which froze, the water stayed unfrozen. I live in North Carolina where we have rather mild winters (not sure where you are); but, last winter we had 2 weeks of temps in the low teens which is when I was especially glad to have these efficient little heaters! Hope this helps.
i live in Maine, nice and chilly in the winter, would this work for a 110 gallon stock tank?
LaJaz on Oct 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Im in arkansas and we got down into the low teens a few days last winter and it kept the water thawed for the most part, it was accessible for the horses. the was some ice forming around the outer ends of my 110 plastic tank. but directly above the heater did not freeze. If you're worried about it get one with a little more watts, i think this one is 250w but is more energy efficient and wont make the water too warm on normal chilly days. For the price difference I would give it a try , im going on the 3rd year with this one, still works.
Does this has a sensor that turns it off when the temp is above freezing?
Marsha P on Jan 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: According to information provided, the heater should turn on when water temperature reaches about 35 degrees and turn off at about 45 degrees. I use one in a 5 gallon bucket and it seems to work well.. keeps the water from freezing when the temperature dips well below 32, probably down to about 10 to 15 degrees.
