We bought this for our neighbor who has horses. They would play with the floating one so the plug-in kind was the best option.

I'm so happy with this tank heater. Not only did it come quickly it solved a major issue for me. I have used a similiar product froma competitor and this season after 1 years use it keep popping my GFI and was a major concern for me and my 3 horses. As soon as this new heater came and installed the GFI has not popped and my boys are happy. THANK YOU and yes buy it.

We have used these stock tank heaters for years.they fit Rubbermaid stock tanks down at the bottom where the drain plug is, they do not fit buckets. Yes this does run up the electric bill, especially if you leave it on all the time. The key is to manage the time it is on. I plug it into the outlet in the morning and may leave it on a few hours a day while our cattle are drinking water. it is always unplugged at night. cattle are sleeping at night. I break the ice in the morning on top of the tank and plug in the heater. Unplug it later in the day depending on the outdoor temperature. I minimize the time it is on by allowing the sun to thaw out the ice. If it is above freezing with no or little ice on the water then I unplug it. It is only on when needed, once the ice is melted it gets unplugged. This means a few extra trips out there a day but it keeps me and the dogs active and I love being out with the cows. :-) I hope this helps.

It is a perfect fit for our Rubbermaid stock tank, unlike the 'universal' unit we replaced.The element is kept away from our inquisitive horses with no risk of it being pulled from the tank.It automatically turns on and off when needed. Some reviewers complain of their electric bill, but I'm not sure what product they think provides free electricity. When its on it uses electricity, that is a very simply principal.
