I ordered this item in the fall and had it all set up before the first hard freeze. Our Long Island winter was below freezing for most of the season, including many days in the single digits. This heater performed well through the entire winter. The birds always had fresh clean water to drink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by birdwatchers2 The birds loved this bird bath de-icer
Arrived in the mail amid a snow storm. Our bird bath was frozen over and the ice didn't completely melt even when I poured 2 pitchers of hot water over the ice. Got enough melted though that I could put the heater in and cover it with water. Worked great!! Melted the remaining ice and I was impressed with the water temperature. Needs extension cord because because the cord is so short, which wasn't a problem. I was freezing trying to situate this for them so I laid a brick partly in the water on the cord to hold it in place. The only bird suspicious of this was the crow who would not go to it until the next day (he doesn't like changes). 6 -7 birds were getting a drink at the same time, and 2 even took a bath in it! (burrrrrrr). A few days later the cord took the shape of the bird bath from the brick holding it down so I removed it. It was fun to watch all the birds loving it, and I would highly recommend this de-icer to everyone.

I received my 50 W Ice Eliminator Birdbath De-Icer shortly before a heavy cold snap set in here in OK. We had several days of below freezing temps and the birdbath was a huge hit in my backyard. The birds of all types came in to drink, some even bathing in it, and I got a lot of joy in knowing I was doing something good for our little forest friends. Thanks Drs!

Haven't had this long, but whew, the birds are so happy to have water during the freeze. Birds that don't usually come to our feeders are showing up!
