Questions & Answers

11 Customer Questions

Is this thermostatic (limits temperature) or an always-on heater?
Answer by ChewyOct 01, 2019
MET Safety Laboratories suggests unplugging the unit if you leave your home on an extended vacation, as they do with any electrical appliance. Otherwise, it is designed for 24/7 operation and you can leave it plugged in all day. This item has been certified by MET labs to adhere to strict electrical safety standards.

Can this deicer be used in a concrete birdbath?
Answer by ChewyNov 26, 2019
This deicer may be used in a variety of birdbath styles, including concrete and stone.

If left plugged in should it keep water from freezing down to 10 degrees farenheit and does it suffer damage if the temperature drops below that?
Answer by ChewyNov 06, 2019
This deicer safely maintains open water to -20 degrees Fahrenheit.

Would this work to keep our 50 gal frog "pond" from completely freezing?
Answer by ChewyOct 24, 2019
This submersible birdbath de-icer is thermostatically controlled to automatically keep water from freezing. The 50 watt model is appropriate for bird baths with 10 gallons of water or less.

I recommend it

My first winter with this product and it held up well except for some peeling on edges already. I have a shallow 18" birdbath so the watt was just right. There were some low freezing temps in teens where half of the birdbath water was frozen but birds still had access to fresh water even at low temps. Disappointed that the outer plastic layer is peeling on the edges a bit but overall, birds & other wildlife loved it. I enjoyed providing them fresh water when they needed it. Felt safe knowing the watt wasn't so high, just enough to get thru the winter days. I have a pet tortoise so I always recommend K&H Pet products. They are a life saver!

Works as promised

Had to wait through most of the cold weather as this item was “temporarily out of stock”. I pounced on ordering when the notification arrived that it was back in stock. It works exactly as promised to keep the birdbath defrosted so the birds can hydrate. This item was priced more economically with Chewy than where we shopped elsewhere. Very happy to finally have it in use and more importantly, so are the birds!

Works as Advertised

I was concerned about this product reading some of the reviews. I am happy to say even after a couple winters in Michigan this product is working just fine - birds, deer, squirrels, neighbor’s cat, occasional hawk and even the wild turkeys are very happy with this purchase.

works well

I’m pleased with my purchase and so are the birds! North Texas experienced a hard freeze with sleet and snow and temperatures in the teens. The heater kept water from freezing.

Just as advertised

I'm very pleased so far. I wish the cord could have been a bit longer but otherwise everything was as advertised and it's working beautifully.

Save your money

I purchased this and was excited to receive it as I have several new rescued birds. I plugged it in and it did not heat up. Worthless.

Not what is described

First the cable is too short and too fat and stiff so it was hard to keep it in the water. The paint is coming off after one season and the durability is questionable. See the photos. I would prefer a refund so I can get something better for the next winter.

Stiff (even before freezing) cable

While this Ice Eliminator kept a shallow 4" deep by 16" diameter bird bath from entirely freezing, no matter how I arranged the short cable it would bob up at the cable end and refuse to stay down. (Instructions say it must stay below the water level). My plan was to place a stone on it to keep it submerged until I could make some sort of bracket to keep the cable shaped in a way the unit stayed submerged. The package instructions didn't preclude the stone addition but I'm concerned it will reduce the heater's effectiveness.

Dont buy this product

I’m not walking back out in the snow to get a picture of a frozen tub of ice just to submit a picture but just be sure you know, this ‘ice eliminated’ did not work past one month. So now that we are having the worst frigid temperatures of the season, the water tub for my animals is frozen solid and prob won’t thaw out till August. I liked the electrical cord clip that keeps it in place in the tub. My advise is not to buy this product.
