CleanFlow Stock Tank Filter
Best winter purchase yet!
Our 1250 watt trough heaters kept overloading the circuits in the barn, so I purchased the filter and de-icer as a replacement due to the lower amp draw on this product. We've got it in a 300 gallon trough that typically would freeze, even with a trough heater, once we got down into the teens. Not only does the power in the barn stay ON now, but the trough is completely liquid - not just a melted spot around the heater. More importantly, the water is relatively warm, so the horses are drinking much more. That's the only down side so far - having to fill the trough WAY more often. Great product - I'll be picking up a few more soon!

Love the filter. I had replaced the pump with a more powerful pump and that seemed to work much better. I also added a charcoal filter and it keeps the tank clean for at least 2 weeks.

I purchased this filter and de-icer earlier this fall. I really wanted to see how well it would filter the hard iron water I have and also see how well a 500 watt heater would work here in Minnesota. So far, LOVE this product. I did put a small rock about one pound on the filter unit to make sure it stayed at the bottom. This works great. The cord holder, I do not see any issues with yet. My two horses dont seem to care, however I do have the stock tank against the fence, so the backside where the cord holders are they do not even mess with. The water is clean, and the tank looks great. It has a even flow on the top, which keeps the water moving, so I waited two nights (when the temps dropped, below freezing) to see if it would freeze over. It did not! There was about a foot and a half opening that the horses could still drink water out of. I finally started the heater and everything is running and looking great. I have not seen the electric bill since I plugged in the heater, however 500 watts, vs. 1500 watts on standard heaters, I think it will be just fine. Works and I am sure the price on electric will be down. I highly recommend this product. Wish I would not have waited so long to purchase.

Simple yet effective
We have over 60 alpacas and use two, 100 gallon water troughs to water them with. Every day we emptied, cleaned and refilled them to the tune of about 30 min. Now that we have the CleanFlow Tank Filter we find ourselves only needing to do that once a month. Although it has not been cold enough to try the water de-icers yet, if they are half as good as the filters, I am sure they will work great!
