How does a dock deicer work?
When a deicer is activated it creates movement in the water, bringing the warmer water up to the surface. By keeping the water in motion, the deicer prevents the surface water from reaching freezing temperature, hindering the formation of ice. This opening helps protect your property in the water from damage caused by ice and potential ice jacking.
Are here other benefits to installing a deicer?
Creating an open surface area in the ice allows essential oxygen to enter the water. This is particularly important for supporting aquatic life during winter when oxygen levels may otherwise become limited, the use of a deicer can help mitigate the risk of a winter fish kill.
What can I do to help waterfowl during winter?
In winter, waterfowl face heightened energy demands to maintain their internal body temperature. Due to snow and ice, they are faced with limited food sources, and during this time they tend to reduce activity to reserve energy, resulting in the gradual loss of body mass. During longer colder winters, this poses a risk as they will continuously lose body mass, and will be forced to migrate to find food or face starvation. Installing a deicer opens a surface area in your icy pond and creates a vital food source for waterfowl benefiting their overall health during the harsh winter months.
How to install a dock bubbler/deicer:
To effectively circulate warmer water from the bottom, the deicer unit must be installed a minimum of 4 to 6 feet below the water surface and at least 1 ft off the bottom. Kasco offers two basic instillation options, rope suspension, or dock mounting. Different de-icing objectives require different mounting approaches, you will need to decide which mounting option is best for you. Vertical instillation creates a circular shaped opening and angled installation creates an oblong shaped opening at the surface of the ice.
