ice and easy float heaterWe bought the ice and easy floating tank heater last year at a local feed store for about 25 dollars and it has proven itself to be a very practical and affordable way to keep outside water from freezing.

It has a built in thermostat that only kicks on when the temperature goes below 32.

It might be the most clever name given to a farm product. I'm using ours to keep the chicken water warm tonight so they can have something non frozen to wake up to tomorrow.
