Heated Pedestal Birdbath 20" dia x 25" high
Hasn't froze yet.
This birdbath was the perfect size for the location, and is easily set up.
Some things I didn't see mentioned, was that the base is hollow plastic. You have to fill the bottom with gravel for use. Be sure to set up your cords before you add the gravel.
Also it is true that in the instructions it mentions that the water will evaporate more than a regular birdbath. It turns out to be about a quart lost per day. I fill it every other day with a 2 liter bottle.

Bird bath arrived at end of winter here. Instructions were very poor for something as simple as a bird bath. Not clear, in fact, there were parts I couldn't figure out what they were for??? Ended up just throwing them away after assembly. The quality was not very good. Product made out of plastic, which was not trimmed properly. But the biggest complaint is the fact that there's no way to check the heater as to whether it works or not! Product needs an adjustable thermostat, one that you can turn on by manually holding it in the "high" position and after checking that it works, release knob and it automatically returns to normal. Finally, would I recommend this product? Yes, even after my review....after all, birds do need access to water to bath and drink, especially here in Minnesota's winter.

It just doesn't work.
I was really excited to receive the birdbath and was pleased when it arrived because it looked very attractive. However, the first night the temperature dropped to 5 degrees above zero, the water froze solid. I changed out the cord just as a precaution but still no luck. I contacted Customer Service and they immediately sent a replacement, but the outcome was the same. I'm returning the replacement too.
If your weather doesn't get really cold, this might be OK for you, but if your temperatures are in the single digits, better try something else.
