The bath is easy to install and the birds absolutely love it. The water is the right depth for small birds and the large birds like it too. I live in an area where we have a lot of ice and snow but I can easily get to the bird bath to add water and clean it.

I purchased one of these baths approximately 6-years ago. The one I have didn't include a de-icer. I had used the bracket for the first year or two and it did hold the bath in place on my deck, but we painted the deck and I didn't want the bracket to scrape the paint off (Deck paint has since worn anyway). I found I didn't really need it. The bath sits on the corner of my deck rail and is heavy enough that it does not blow off. I have a de-icer that I purchased to include in the bath during colder months to keep the water available for the birds and squirrels. I've even had a red-tailed hawk check it out.
The only problem I've had is with the squirrels taking nibbles of plastic off around the rim. Not as nice looking as it use to be, but still useable. Easy to clean with a brush and I use vinegar to scrub, add baking soda to neutralize and rinse well.

I have two of these at home. I don't use the mounting hardware, as I built a little rock garden and set the baths directly on the ground. They are sturdy and well-made. In the winter, when the water ices up, they are strong enough to withstand being slammed into the ground (to loosen the ice#. After two very bad winters, they haven't cracked yet #and they hold a lot of water). I fill them with very hot water in the winter. The birds love them, as do the squirrels and feral cats.

Birdbath froze over at 10 degrees. I purchase this in September and do like it because it is easy to discard the old water but am terribly disappointed that it is not going to available to the birds when they will be needing fresh water.
