We use this as an auxiliary heater to get our hot tub up to temperature more quickly.
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.

I purchased a couple of these to warm some water barrels in a 16x30 greenhouse and they're just great for that purpose and at that price. My barrels are black 35 gallon and will absorb some solar gain during the day. However when I drop in one of these heaters the water temp goes up roughly 10 degrees an hour and tops out around 100. I purchased a $5 timer from Walmart and only run them from about 4 pm to midnight. They re-radiate heat all night and meet the goal of keeping the greenhouse above freezing at 7200' elevation in the Rockies! I am planning on getting at least two more of these heaters.
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.

This product works well in terms of heating the water. No issue with that.
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.

Not sure what to say here but I got it to heat my cheapo hot tub (which I know is verboten for these units). But....my heater in-a-box-in-a-tub doesn't heat any more, yet the filter pump and blower still work like new (I think they design these integrated heaters to go bad after a year - I've already replaced 2 units in a few years). I just needed to heat the water. I figured I would get this, run it on a timer and figure out how many hours it needed to be on to achieve the desired heat, then unplug it when I got in the tub to minimize the threat of electrical mishaps.

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.

I have two of these that we use to heat a redneck baptismal pool (a 3x2x8 300 gallon stock tank that's painted black and on a 14" stand with stairs build up to it) at my church. I drop in a small fountain submersible pump ($25) with a 5' piece of hose attached to recirculate the water so that it heats evenly/quickly. I then wrap the tank in roll of bubble type flexible duct insulation and throw a tarp over the top and put some blankets over it to minimize heat loss and remove it all about 30 mins before use.

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.

I have a QCA two person hot tub which is 120v and, like many manufactures, use what they call a friction heater located in the pump. I use the bucket heater to supplement the pump heater and have it connected to a Ranco temperature control. The only problem with the bucket heater is that it rusts! I understand that bromine can be the cause but I keep a low level of bromine in the hot tub and have coated the heater frame with silicone but the rusts still persists. I have now cleaned the heater frame and am trying some Rust-Oleum and see if that prevents the rust.

I use this on my above ground kiddie pool. Warms the water from 60 deg to 80 deg in about 5 hours so plan ahead. (water area: 4' x 4' x 12" deep inflatable kiddie pool. Intex Swim Center Clearview Aquarium Inflatable Pool, 62.5" X 62.5" X 19.5") BE SURE TO REMOVE HEATER BEFORE SWIMMING!

I bought this unit, since I do not have running hot water. It takes way too long to even think about heating the bath water. It would be ok to heat a 3 gallon bucket of water. I am keeping this as a back-up in case the other one quits working.

(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.
