I have been using these heated buckets for a few years now for our outside dogs. It is nice to know that they will always have water to drink no matter how cold it is. Previously I had 2 of the 10 quart size buckets and they worked well for approx. 3 winters. One developed a split in the bottom and the other one quit heating as well and ice would form when the temps hit the mid to low 20's. We only used them from late November thru late Feb to early March and then stored them the rest of the year. Again they save a lot of trouble of frequently replacing frozen water buckets to the pets and give you peace of mind that your animals will always have water. I was just disappointed in only getting 3 winters out of the first buckets we bought.

I have the 2 gallon version for my dogs, and it has been great. So far, I'm on year 6 with it and it's still going strong.

I bought this to keep my horse's water from becoming a frozen block overnight, and because horses tend to prefer slightly warmer water. It's worked great for that purpose, and seems very well made and sturdy. The heater is embedded into the sides of the bucket near the bottom, and the cord is grounded and surrounded by a wire "anti-chew" coating which has worked great (although my horse doesn't chew on things normally, there is a goat who chews on anything and she's been kept at bay by the covering). The cord stores in the bottom of the bucket when not in use which is a nice touch. Overall I'd highly recommend it for horse owners.

It's not a thick bucket however it's not thin either. It's working great. It has been below freezing for 8 days now, but did a few modifications.
1st---I purchase a temperature controlled outlet adapter that turn the outlet on @36 degrees because it does stay on as long as it's plugged in. (Had to make a modification to that because our outlet is recessed by adding an adapter) Our temps can swing wildly. One day is 40 the next in the teens. I get busy and forget to unplug it and our dogs don't like the water heated up.

2-- we placed the bucket with the flat side to the house. This alone will help it to freeze much slower but also we have a rambunctious young male dog who is playful. He used to turn over the old bucket. The flat side against the wall stopped that.

3--- My husband dug a 10" deep hole size of the bottom of the bucket and filled it with 4" of rocks. This helped to insulate it and force the heat upward instead of escaping the sides. Even in 8 degree weather the entire bucket was ice free. If you dig it a little too big around, just pile and pack the dirt tightly back around it when you are done to help seal it off. Don't bury it too deep and make it hard for dogs to drink out of. rocks under the bucket are for drainage to keep from drowning it out if you over fill the bucket and the ring of dirt that around it becomes saturated.

No more breaking ice for me!

This American product arrived on time and is exactly as described. It is well made (better than the Chinese product I first attempted to purchase) It comes with a storage compartment with a closable door and has a three prong grounded plug.

Awesome buckets; keeps our stall buckets ice free, and even picky horses seem happy to drink from them. Will buy more for other stalls

We live in a colder area and got this for our three large outside dogs. This works very well for them. It holds a lot of water so they don't run low during the day. I think if it's taken care of it will last several winters. We have it on our deck and the cord is protected with a outer layer of coiled metal. The cord can be stored in the bottom of the bucket as well. I'm not sure it's tough enough to hold up to our horses.
