Just what I needed
Durable, reliable, love that I can look out the window and get reassurance from indicator light how it's functioning.

Works as stated
When I purchased this heater my pond was almost all ice except where the water falls is. Once I placed in pond, the ice melted and my fish were happy . I live in Philadelphia and we have had a very cold Feb. So far, the ice is gone.

This de-icer works well to maintain an opening in the ice in winter. Best of all, the LED lights tell you when it is heating and when it is in the "standby" mode. It also has an extra long cord which allows you to place it out in the middle of your pond. On my unit the green light indicates it is heating, while the red light indicates "standby" mode. (On the internet it is the opposite).

I live in North Carolina and we have had an extremely cold winter this year. I have had a water garden for 9 years and never needed a de-icer. I always keep my filtration running and I have a "Jan made" (instead of man made) stream flowing into it. That usually has created enough water movement to keep my pond from freezing. Well not this year! Temperatures plummeted and then the snow came. I have never been so stressed. I went online and began reading the reviews of many de-icers. Yes there were some less expensive on Drs Foster but the reviews were not as good. I didn't want to put my fish through unnecessary stress nor myself so i went with this one. ALL reviews were good with it. It is light and durable, sleek in appearance and it has a neat indicator light on top that is easily visible. It immediately began defrosting and this water had ice approximately 3 inches thick. Thank you Drs Foster & Smith for once again making my ever so loved project a worry free pond.
