SANTA MARIA, Calif., Oct. 3, 2019 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — The change of seasons no longer means having to perform labor intensive tasks to safeguard your boat, dock and summer lake equipment from the damage that can occur from frigid, freezing water conditions. This winter use a Deicer in your lake or pond to prevent costly damage, says Discount Pumps.

Discount Pumps - Dock Deicer
If you live in a frigid climate, you know your lake or pond is subject to icy conditions. This can make proper care of your dock or shoreline a challenge. If your dock is permanent or you have shoreline structures that have to be protected each year, a Deicer is a must to keep ice from forming around your property.

Deicers are used by marinas, hydropower facilities, municipalities, and pond owners.

Deicer products are designed to keep a large area of the pond or lake, free from ice build-up, even under extreme winter weather conditions. A Deicer will keep an area of water from forming ice wherever the Deicer is placed in the water. They prevent sheets of ice from enveloping the structures left in the water for the winter. Damage occurs when ice is allowed to form causing undue pressure on the item the ice has surrounded. When the ice moves that pressure damages whatever property it has attached to.

The Deicer operates by bringing warmer water up from the bottom of your lake or pond and sending it out (50-foot diameter minimum) in a continuous agitated movement. This enables the water around your dock, boat and shoreline to stay ice-free.

Other benefits of using a dock Deicer are aeration for fish and aquatic life, prevention of debris from settling near your dock, and keeps pond water open that attract birds for hunting.

How does this all work?

Dock Deicer: Provides the added plus of in-water boat storage as a possibility during harsh winters. A dock mount deicer mounts quickly and easily to almost any type of dock using a stainless steel dock plate, pipe and yoke assembly that suspends the Deicer under the surface of the water. This mount allows for easy adjustment to accommodate different water levels.

Slinger Deicer: Using nylon rope to secure, the Slinger Deicer can be suspended from a boat, pilings or dock. It easily adjusts to compensate for varying levels of the pond. This is best for use in hard-to-reach areas and rapidly changing weather conditions. An economical solution to prevent ice formation in large marinas and dock areas.

Floating Deicer: Floating Deicer is designed to keep a large area of the pond open in the winter. The deicer is connected to a float approximately 2 feet below the pond’s surface. Also the Floating Deicer can adjust for variations in water levels.

Free Standing Deicer: A free standing post for a Deicer without a dock! Now you can place your Deicer in those hard to reach spots, no dock required.

Adding an oscillator: A fully programmable oscillator attachment helps keep larger areas free from ice build-up without the need to purchase a second deicer. Pre-programmed to rotate in 20-degree increments every 20 minutes, an oscillator turns the deicer on its mounting. You can set it for any radius you need, then plug it in, that’s it.

The owner of Discount Pumps stated “We offer several sized Deicers for your pond’s needs with installation guidelines. To have peace of mind this winter, consider a Deicer to prevent structural ice damage and keep your pond waters free and clear of ice.”
