Floating Pond De-Icers will keep a small area of the pond open for ventilation during winter months. Our decorative version features a 300 watt heater which is enough capacity to keep a small area from forming ice up to -20F. The decorative rock-shaped cover blends into the pond surface and surroundings while keeping a small area around the stone from freezing over.
This is the latest version which features a very small thermostatically controlled heating element that allows surface ice to form everywhere except where the Pond De-Icer is located. This open area vents gases caused by decomposing organic material such as uneaten food and organic waste. These gases could build up to a level that would be harmful to fish and other critters hibernating in the pond. This design allows the use of an air pump for additional aeration and ventilation if needed.
Heavy duty plastic construction with double sealed cover and epoxy encapsulated heater unit insures maximum safety. The built-in thermostat turns on the heating unit only enough to keep the ice from forming over the vent hole. Saves a lot of money over larger heaters that operate all the time to keep the entire pond ice-free. Will not harm or damage plastic or rubber pond liners. UL Safety Listing.
