How many of these deicer's would I need for a 125-150 gallon stock tank?
Answer by ChewyDec 30, 2017
The K&H Pet Products Ultimate Stock Tank Deicer is recommended for large tanks. Depending on how cold it is where you live, would determine the wattage you need. We encourage pet parents to use the Zone Chart, the 4th photo on the left, to choose the best wattage for their water stock tank. You can also use multiple de-icers. As long as you spread them out away from each other to provide even coverage, this solution should work.

What are the cycle on/cycle off temperatures?
Answer by ChewyNov 20, 2017
Internal thermostats automatically monitor water temperature and turn the unit on and off to keep the average water temperature just above freezing. The unique technology ensures that your de-icer will only run as often as needed.

Does this go in the water? Or under the bucket?
Answer by ChewyDec 27, 2017
The Ultimate Bucket Heater is only designed to be plugged in when it is submerged in water. It will not turn off automatically if there is no water. Never plug the unit in unless the heating element is completely submerged in water. Otherwise, the unit will be damaged.

wattage for this heater?
Answer by ChewyJan 05, 2021
This is a 250 watt heater.

1 out of 2 failed

I purchased 2 of these for tanks in 2 separate duck enclosures They're worked great for a week or so. Then one failed for unknown reasons. I went outside after temps in low teens to find one tank with no ice and the other a solid chunk of ice enclosing the tank heater. So back to icebreaking until I find a better small tank heater replacement.

Horse Owner

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.

No rust in the water

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

Melted my bucket

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.
