Take the collapsed metal stand and pull apart until it stands. The bottom of the stand has black end caps on the legs. Take the round tubular metal ring with 3 pegs and align with the 3 legs. Push down until firmly seated. Take the heated birdbath bowl and set it into the round ring. Locate the spot where you want to place your birdbath (make sure it is in a location where you can watch birds from inside your home).
Pour water in the bath to determine if it is level. If not, move it around until it is level. If you are placing it on the ground, insert the metal ground stakes at an approximate 45-degree angle over the bottom portion of the leg that sits on the ground. Do this before the ground is frozen.
The 2 ft black cord can be wound around one of the legs of the stand. Attach an extension cord that is rated for outdoor use. Wrap several layers of electrical tape around the connection between the birdbath and your extension cord. Before plugging in your bath and adding water, leave the bath out for a couple hours to adjust to the outside temperature. This will ensure the thermostat will turn the heater on when needed. Plug the extension cord into a properly grounded outdoor electrical outlet. Add water. To use the bath in the seasons other than winter, the cord can be disconnected from the extension cord and wrapped under the bowl.
For the health of your backyard birds, keep the bath clean. The finish on the bath makes it easy to keep clean, just wipe with a wet cloth or soft brush. Rinse well before refilling. Never submerse the entire bowl in water.
