The Ice Eliminator is safe to handle when warm. However, it is recommended that you unplug it for cleaning.
Should I choose the 50 watt or 80 watt model?
The 50 watt model is appropriate for bird baths with 10 gallons of water or less. For baths with more than 10 gallons, please use the 80 watt model.
Can I turn the Ice Eliminator off at night and back on in the morning without damaging it?
Unplugging the Ice Eliminator continuously will actually wear the product out prematurely because it will cause the thermostat to regulate itself daily, which isn’t good for the thermostat. We recommend keeping this item plugged in continuously. Also, this will prevent your bird bath water from freezing during the night. The Ice Eliminator must be submerged in water and submersion would be difficult if the bath water is frozen.
General Questions about Outdoor Heated Products
How long is the cord?
The cord is 18″ long.
Can I use an extension cord with this product?
MET requires that all manufacturers put the extension cord statement “Do not use with extension cord” on every item that is MET listed by UL 499 standards. This is because they cannot test every extension cord on the market in conjunction with our products for safety. Also, MET suggests that an extension cord is not recommended as a permanent fixture and should only be a temporary solution when using any electrical product.Temporary use of a UL listed cord is fine, but consult your electrician for the proper cord for your application. For more information on MET safety testing, please visit their website atwww.metlabs.com.
How long can a heated product be plugged in?
