De-icers push the warm, bottom water to the surface to prevent or eliminate ice formation. This creates an ice-free area of protection around your boat, dock, pier, or other in-water property during freezing temperatures. Providing this ice-free zone will successfully prevent damage from ice jacking and expansion. De-icers can also help protect fish and aquatic species, by allowing for open areas where oxygen can enter the water.
Don’t think of a de-icer as a product just for northern climates or winter use. These high performance motors that create large amounts of water flow for winter de-icing can also be used to provide year-round benefits. Water circulation from a de-icer will help eliminate foul odors and stagnant water areas and may help deter floating plant growth. This water flow is also an easy and effective way to prevent floating debris and trash from entering marinas or collecting around boats and dock. By strategically placing de-icers on dock mounts or horizontal floats, water flow can be directed to push debris to areas where it is easy to remove or even prevent it from entering the area altogether.
