    Work's great in above 0 temperatures

    We used this item in a rubber black 2 1/2 gallon bucket using a 100 foot 14 awg extension cord. We had a spell where it got -1 to -14F at night. It was a closed in area on a cement and Icy floor. It did freeze to 1" on the top of the bucket, We broke the ice, filled up the bucket with more water and We used this item in a rubber black 2 1/2 gallon bucket using a 100 foot 14 awg extension cord.

    Didn’t work out for me

I gave it a couple tries to see if it would improve and it hasn’t. When weather was just starting to freeze, the ice was noticeable in the bottom of the bucket. The salt water in a water bottle actually held off the ice longer than this. Freezing weather it didn’t work at all. The box says it works for us up to 16 gal and my chicken waterer is only 5 gal. I was hopeful that this would save me money from buying another bucket heater since those have to be filled more frequently, but it doesn’t look like it worked out for me. Maybe others have had better luck or I did something incorrectly. … more

    works great

    I’ve had and used this for two years now. I leave it plugged in and mounted in a hanging water pail that has nipples. This keeps the water from freezing and the chickens can easily access water from the nipples.

    Awesome heater!

    By on

    We have had this heater now a few months and it has been outstanding at keeping our 3 gal plastic water bucket fluid for our chickens and dogs! Our temps have been some of the coldest I remember here in pa. with sustained sub zero temps.. Real work saver and we will buy another one if/when something happens to this guy.

    Didn’t Work

    By on

    If it was around 32°, it worked. But anything colder than that and my water would still freeze. I have a 15 gallon water bucket that I was using this in for the dogs. I ended up just taking it out and filling a separate bowl up for them when it would freeze.

    These heaters work perfectly for my horses. I have 15 gallon buckets and live in SW Virginia.

    Northern Illinois winters -Nope

    I was so excited to get these because I hate hauling frozen water buckets in the winter. First few days they were great but temps were in the 20s. Cold blast this week and we are below zero and I have frozen buckets again with a heater frozen in the giant ice cube. Took 8 hours in the warm house with the bucket heater plugged in to thaw them out. Would not recommend for my area but they are probably ok for milder temps

    Works in the cold UT winters

    By on

    Seems to be doing its job just fine to keep our chickens' water from being frozen, while not making the water too hot to drink. It recommends not using an extension cord, but for us, this has worked fine so far.
