We live in southwest PA and are buried in over 2 feet of snow right now. Standing water won't stayed thawed. I hated seeing the birds having to eat snow to get fluid, while my bird bath was buried under the snow. I plugged this gadget in,dropped it in, and waited. It's been plugged in out there for about 24 hours and no sign of ice accumilation at all, just nice, fresh water. I felt the water, it's cold, it doesn't warm it up, just keeps it from freezing. It won't win any beauty contests, but it sure does the job and is worth the price. I've only had it for a little over a day, so I can't say anything about how long it will last, but any reputable company would replace a defective device. Otherwise, as far as I can see, it's great. If I needed another one, I would buy it again.

    This is a great little gadget. Despite the bitterly cold winter we have had the birdbath water has not frozen. One morning there were about ten birds sitting around the edge of the birdbath. it has really attracted many birds. A great buy

      I have been feeding and watering birds for 40 years. I bought this heater in the late fall of 2013 Kentucky has been in the deep freeze as many southern states. The water was never frozen. It did not have ice on any part of the dish I used to water the birds. Recommend it to keep your bird water fresh and thawed all winter. We were several days like 2 weeks or more below freezing. We were subzero degrees. Bird water was not.

        The heater works exactly as advertised. We've had multiple subfreezing days and water stays unfrozen.

            It's easy to use, it works, what more could one ask? Last week we had 17(F) below weather and it kept my marble stone bird bath ice free. I'd suggest you buy two....nothing lasts forever, and you never know when you'll need a spare.

            Customer Q & A

            6 Questions About This Product
            Q: "Will this work in a metal shallow bath?"
            A: As long as it is fully covered by water it will work fine.
            Q: "Can I use a heavy duty extension cord with this bath?"
            A: Yes you can use it but if is over 15 to 20 foot  is not going to work because you loose power and won't allow you to turn it on. 
            Q: "What is the "appropriate temperature" at which this heater is designed to keep the water? Thank you?"
            A:

            The heater/de-icer will turn on once the water reaches 45 degrees.

            Q: "What are the dimensions?
            A: The dimensions are 7.5L x 2.75W x 1H inches
            Q: "How does one clean off deposits from the heater / de-icer?"
            A:

            As a first step, our supplier suggests soaking the unit in vinegar and if you need to do more they suggest using a product like CLR or Lime Away to clean deposits from the heater / de-icer.

             

            Q: "Will it shut off if water level gets too low?"
            A: Because the water is so shallow in a bird bath, it is harder to keep it thawed.  The deicer will shutoff for periods when the surrounding air/water temperature reaches around 60 degrees.  Then it will recycle and turn on again when the air/water temperature drops to the low 40's.
