Product Details

Floating Pond Deicer - Ice Chaser - Thermostatically Controlled (1250 Watts) - P-418

Easy to use; Just plug in your Floating Pond De-icer and float it on your pond dome side up. If your pond is already ice covered, drill a hole with an ice auger and place the Floating deicer over the hole. If the ice is only 1 or 2 inches thick, place the Floating Deicer on the ice and it will melt its way through. Do not chop through the ice in smaller ponds as the shock waves can damage or kill your fish. "Always keep safety your number one priority." Never walk on thin ice. Try to position your Floating deicer within arm's reach or shore to avoid walking on thin ice.

The Floating deicer is recommended for ponds up to 600 gallons. Please use two Floating Deicers for ponds over 600 gallons or for ponds requiring extra gas exchange due to excessive plant decay or large quantities of fish under the ice.

This is great deicer, but you need to make sure you clean the lime off the bottom, or it will stop working and freeze into the pond. Mine stopped working just in approx. 3 months and I had to melt it out and clean the lime off Not an easy thing to do when its 10 degrees. I suggest you buy two so you can just switch them out for an easier cleaning job. I now have two.
