Used this product (250 watt model) for the first time last night, we had 11 hours under 30 degrees. Got up before sunrise this morning, my horse was drinking & the stock tank was 65 degrees.

I don't agree with the negative reviews...this product is awesome and will save you money with it's low operating cost. I did have trouble with one unit and it was promptly replaced. I am on my third year now with the same units.

I used the 500 watts De-icer on a cold night for the first time.
The next morning I notice thin layer of ice in the water tank. I had a dedicated GFCI receptacle installed just for the De-icer.
I checked the GFCI receptacle and it tripped, I reset the GFCI but every time I plugged the De-icer it tripped again.
I am very disappointed with the product, I expected the De-icer to function well without the worries and doubts. “Is it working?” Do my horses and goats have water today?
Sometime I wish the manufacture and company that sale any product should be responsible for a product that work. All it takes is pride and quality control.

I DISAGREE WITH THE OTHER REVIEW, THIS HAS BEEN A GREAT DE ICER AND WE HAD SOME ABSOLUTELY FRIGID TEMPS LAST WINTER, WAS FINE ALL SEASON AND PLAN TO USE IT AGAIN THIS SEASON. I USUALLY PUT THEM IN THE TANKS FROM EARLY NOV OR LATE OCT TO APRIL. THE CLIP IS A GREAT IDEA, ALTHO IT DOES NEED TO BE CHECKED DAILY FOR ANY MOVEMENT BY THE HORSES BUT KEEPS IT SECURE FOR THE MOST PART. I BOUGHT A 750W AND IT WAS PERFECT EVEN WHEN IT WAS BELOW ZERO FOR SEVERAL DAYS.

We ran 2 of these in seperate tanks all last winter. We had a really bad winter with many neg. temps. Never had a problem. I have some colts that like to "check" everything out. These survived them too. I'm ordering more to prepare for this winter since we have more tanks.

catalog lists item as made in USA, but actually manufactured in China. Product only lasted less than one month & has a defective thermostate. Product had to be returned. Don't recommend.
