Bought this as a gift for my dad to keep his aluminum stock tank from freezing. The thing would t even cut on. He took it inside to see if it was something in the wiring outside and still wouldn’t work. We were really looking forward to not having to worry about our horses water freezing over but we are sadly disappointed in this product.
The First One Burnt Out Quickly

I had ordered this product to keep my chicken’s water from freezing. It worked well for a short period of time and then burnt out. I contacted Chewy and because of their awesome customer service, they sent me out a replacement. God willing it will last longer then the first one. Hopefully that was just a fluke...
Died in less than 2 months

I was really happy about this little heater as we placed it in a small plastic pool with metal Underneath to prevent the pool melting. I liked that is was only 250 watts and was just right even when freezing out. It worked perfect for about 7 weeks and then died. We did everything correctly. If it were still working I would have given 5 stars but I'm very disappointed and am back to hauling hot water. I am handicapped so this stinks. I have always gotten good quality items from chewy.. I hope they will send me a new one.
Winter Water for Wildlife

This bucket heater works well in my back yard, so far keeping the ice away when temps are as low as 15 degrees (and probably lower). The deer know where to find water now, and the birds flock to my bucket.

Every year, we've struggled to keep our chickens watered in winter. The farm supply de-icers tend to be fussy and need a ground wire. This one costs less and all it needed was to be plugged into the outlet. I don't have to worry about anything besides keeping the clucker's water tub full. A big relief with a week plus of single digit temps!
Melted my bucket
on Jan 15, 2018
I bought this heater about a week ago for my goats' water bucket. This afternoon I smelled something burning and found the heater had melted through the plastic cage and also melted a hole in my heavy duty water bucket. Very disappointed but would be willing to try it again if I was given a replacement.

Very thankful to have this heater to allow my ducks to swim throughout the winter.
Don't let it plugged in when not submerged in water!!
No rust in the water

Much better than the old kind of trough heater because this does not rust.

These work great, I have smaller waterers and we have had some really cold weather and the water is always drinkable for my animals
