Pond Heater Deicers

Pond winterization with a Pond deicer

The use of a floating or submersible Pond deicer is one of the best ways you can winterize your pond. But what is a pond deicer, why do I need one, how do I use one, and how is it different from a pond heater?

What is a pond de icer?

As the name implies, a pond de icer is a device used to prevent the buildup of ice in your pond in winter. There are two basic types of deicers. A floating pond deicer will float on the surface of your winter pond and submersible pond de icers sit on the bottom of your pond. Both types keep a small hole free of ice in the surface of your pond to allow the escape of gases that could otherwise sicken or kill your fish. Pond deicers range in wattage from 100 watts to 1500 watts and provide a cost effective and safe way to winterize your pond. Read the rest of this pond deicer article.
