Floating Pond De-Icer by Allied Precision Industries is an excellent alternative to keep a pond alive during the harshest blizzards of winter cold, sleet, hail, snow and rain.
Floating Pond De-Icer is not merely a water heater, rather the contrary is true, as it was never intended to keep the water at a certain temperature, but rather to merely maintain the icecap of a pond from freezing over completely.
Trapping decomposing debris inside a ponds icecap would produce noxious gases, floating pond de-icer keeps the pond surface from freezing completely over, maintaining a small hole opening that allow for a healthy exchange of gases, including much needed oxygen.
Automatically controlled shut-off, Floating Pond De-Icer has a thermostat that regulates the de-icing process.
A Styrofoam float is completely enclosed within a rugged plastic housing, and an extension cord exits the top of the unit for added stability.
Floating Pond De-Icer is a patented item and there are two models available.
Model number #P7521 is 1500 watts, will run off of 120 volts and comes with a 15 foot cord for use in outdoor ponds of up to 600 gallons or more.
Model number #P7621 is 1000 watts, runs off of 120 volts and also comes with a 15 foot electrical cord for use in medium to large sized ponds between 50 to 600 gallons.
Floating Pond De-Icer will conserve the pond habitat as well as the electric bill with a thermostat regulation system that knows when to turn itself off and when to go back on again, keeping the brutal side effects of winter at a distance from the sensitive environment held within a garden pond during Jack Frosts seasonal reign.
