We have guinea hens and I was tired of carting their metal water can into the house to defrost it twice a day during the winter. I looked into the one piece water fount/heaters, but thanks to an Amazon.com review, I rejected them. The reviewers said they were complicated to refill. I went with this heater that you set the fount on top of. I was worried at first about the label which warned the top got hot. Would it burn the guineas or ignite the straw? Actually the top is barely warm, just enough to keep the water fount from freezing. The cord is a little short, but I use a strong extension cord. Otherwise, worked great.

This will be our fourth winter for using this heater in our chicken coop. It does a great job keeping the water thawed, even during the coldest months.
Although the unit does not get hot, for peace of mind I set mine up on a few concrete patio pavers. It helps in preventing too much dirt and straw from getting under the unit itself.

Even though there's a warning about "hot surface", I never felt it that hot to touch, but it did the job with my 5-gallon fount. Never any ice & hens had plenty of non-frozen water during the last 3 winters. Nothing like rating something years after you purchase it! Still works like a charm. Excellent investment.

Does what it's supposed too. Sturdy enough and you'd be hard pressed to make your own for a lot less money.

Water freezing in the chicken house was a big problem for us; this being our first winter with chickens. This heated base solved the problem and also raised the water dish so they don't kick stuff into the water nearly as often. Seemed pricey, but has been worth it.

I ordered two of these, one for a covered outside chicken run water font and one for an enclosed chicken coop. The outside unit did not work at all when the outside temp went down to 28 degrees overnight and up to about 32 degrees the next morning. The inside one did work and heated the water to about 45-50 degrees.

I called Farm Innovators and the representative said that I should put the entire unit in the freezer unplugged for about an hour to re-calibrate the thermostat. My freezer is set at 0 degrees Fahrenheit. After an hour, I took it out and it worked. Temp went up to about 195-200 degrees in the center and turned off after the unit began to thaw to room temp. So I will put it back out in the chicken run and see what happens tonight. Hopefully, this will be a fix and it will work. Before you send yours back, try this if you can.

Edit: I put the heater back in the run last night and this morning when I woke up The temperature outside was 27°F and the water was heated to a perfect 50°. For now I have to say I do endorse this product. The only question remaining is longevity. I am going to raise from three stars to four stars.

I did take off two stars because the device is too cheaply made (in China). There is no way this thing is worth about $50. At the very least it should have an adjustable thermostat like the one in your car or house and it should be sealed better so that it can be used out side safely, especially since it is designed to be used under about 5 gallons of water and for livestock which will spill and drip water on it at some point.

Mine doesn't work out of the box and by reading the reviews it looks like they have a pretty high failure rate. Made in China crap. Contacted farm innovators directly and they want me to pay to send it back which is archaic customer service. Luckily amazon will ship it back for free.

So far this product has held up wonderfully. I have a 20gal galvanized waterer sitting on top of it and the base is about an inch wider in diameter. The thermastat is accurate - it is off when the temperature is above freezing and immediately cuts on when it hits 25*F. Easy to clean and to maintain.
