During the cold winter months water freezes very easily, especially in a fish pond outside. This creates a serious problem. Decomposition occurs and it emits a toxic gas that cannot excape due to the ice plug on the surface of frozen ponds. This makes the survival of living organisims during the cold winter months very rough. This is an easily fixed problem with this ice preventer. It creates a hole in the ice that lets the toxic gasses excape.

► Easy to use; Just plug in your Floating Deicer and float it on your pond dome side up. If your pond is already ice covered, drill a hole with an ice auger and place the Floating deicer over the hole. If the ice is only 1 or 2 inches thick, place the Floating Deicer on the ice and it will melt its way through. Do not chop through the ice in smaller ponds as the shock waves can damage or kill your fish. "Always keep safety your number one priority." Never walk on thin ice. Try to position your Floating deicer within arm's reach or shore to avoid walking on thin ice.
