A reader of CvilleBuzz recently asked my recommendation of bird bath de-icers. I have used several varieties over the years and have found that the Model C-50 Bird-Bath De-Icer by Farm Innovators is by far the best. The others, though advertised as highly efficient, don’t do the job when the going gets really cold. And several take up unnecessary space.
The Premium Cast 150-Watt Aluminum Birdbath De-Icer melts snow and ice with ease. It’s
Compact, fully submersible and fits virtually any birdbath, transforming it into an ice-free sanctuary. The thermostatically controlled unit is safe for all birdbaths. It turns on automatically at 35°F and withstands weather to -20°F. The durable, efficient design functions only when needed to save you money. The De-Icer measures 4-1/2″ diameter x 5″ long and comes with a manufacturer’s three-year limited warranty. It is UL-Listed.
