Powerhouse 1/2HP Ice Eater with 25' Cord, 115V, P500-25-115V
Eater is designed to prevent ice from forming around boats, marinas, docks,
and piers as well as effectively melting existing ice by breaking the
surface with a continuous current of warmer bottom water.
Ice Eater's propeller draws up warmer
subsurface water and deflects it to the surface creating a constant
circulation of warmer water that prevents ice formation. Ice Eater will melt
existing ice. Unlike other de-icing units, Ice Eater requires no additional
hardware in order to obtain the desired de-icing patern. Ice Eater is
shipped complete with suspension lines. It can be taken out of the box, hung
in place and plugged in. Ice Eater may be hung from a pier or boat. Two to
three feet is the average operating depth.

The design of the Ice Eater's venturi shroud (housing) with outwardly flared
ends draws warmer water from greater depths than other conventional de-icers.
The shroud is submersible below the surface
either vertically or angled from vertical. A set of mounting holes at
opposed positions on the flange allows the lines to be attached.
