Works great - cuts heating time by 60%. I also use it my shop to get warm water - rather than the expense of installing a hot water heater.
Wish the cord was a bit longer, but the guard around the element keeps it off the bottom of the tub
and the 1000W power makes it easy to plug into any electrical outlet.
This is a well made product - lots of uses around the house.
NOTE! Make sure you get a "heater" and not a "de-icer" if you intend this kind of usage. A de-icer will warm a bucket or stock tank only enough to keep it ice free.
But, the metal cage that surrounds the heating element corroded very badly within 1 month as did the bottom of the round body where the heating element protrudes from the unit.
It makes no sense to me since this is supposed to be used in water and why would it corrode so quickly ? Stainless steel cage and body would have been a better choice I would think.
I had to return it due to corrosion. Save yourself the hassle and dont buy this.
Unfortunately, the instructions that come with it say it will only heat when it detects water temperatures below 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Bummer. I want my hot tub to stay between 100 and 104 so this just wasn't gonna do the job. I wish the 80 degree situation had been explained on the website. But I returned it for a full refund and got a similar heater that is working perfectly so far (MARSHALLTOWN The Premier Line 742G Bucket Water Heater - about $40). And I've saved about $500 by not having to buy a whole heater/pump unit.
The Farm Innovators Submergible Bucket Heater with Attached Guard Model W-449, 1,000-Watt looks like a sturdy unit if you have a fish pond or something more aligned with it's design. I never plugged it in to try it out after actually reading the intructions first for once. And I must say, those instructions are well written.
PS I just saw my review vs. others that say they heated their hot tubs with no problem. So maybe it does work at temps above 80 degrees, maybe.
Over night this will bring the temp of approx. 200 gals of water, to avoid spillage we don't fill it all the way up, to 110 degrees! These things work great!!
Evidently they've had a price increase ... I got mine for $24.99 each.
(My heater of choice is the Allied Precision The Premier Line 742G Bucket Water Heater by Allied Precision ) I have used that heater for over 3 years.

Use this for my hot tub. This particular model has thermostat set to off at 110deg. For a 250g spa,
It takes 16hrs from 70-80deg start temp to get to 110deg. Read more
Fantastic and very effective. I bought this for a homemade hot tub and it is just perfect. Right now, I only have it in the tub itself and plug it in and unplug it. Read morePublished 26 days ago by CLK
will not turn on if the water is 80+. I wanted this to top off my hot tub water and take it to 104 but it will not turn on when the hot tub is already 80.Published 1 month ago by Paul E. Smith
Would be better if the metal ring did not rust. If it is made for water, I dont think it should rust.Published 2 months ago by adam phelps
