Durable to the elements, year after year
I've gone through many de-icers, only to be disappointed to find a disk frozen solid in the pond in the middle of winter. This product has proven to last and be effective. Yes, it draws more electricity, but cycles on and off when the water around it is thawed. I have a 2,000 gal pond, and found this de-icer to be the only product that can do the job, effectively and last year after year.
Fosterandsmith has always come through for me with immediately shipping, and delivery to me next day, since I live in the midwest as well. Thanks for being such a wonderfull company to do business with.

Due to a dramatic drop in water level in my koi pond, and winter upon us, my koi were in danger of not surviving due to freezing temperatures causing thick ice leaving no room for movement or gas release, your rep recommended this de-icer. The fish appear to be winterizing well.
Product has also been proven to be energy efficient. This item was a great investment.

Unit does what it says it will do
This is the third pond deicer of this model that I have purchased. The first two worked well, one I dropped and fractured, the other is in use, the third is my back up.
My second one cut out at the beginning of the season but I ran the tests per the operating instructions and found that it is working properly. It is in use now and working properly.
One negative comment: I emailed the manufacturer with a technical question and THEY DID NOT RESPOND to my question.
