The new “Perfect Climate” line from K&H Manufacturing has “reinvented the wheel” when it comes to keeping ice free water available in winter ponds. Every K&H de‐icer is safe in all ponds, unlike many of the other de‐icers available in the market today. Every one of our de‐icers can be used as a floating de‐icer out of the box or in seconds converts to a submersible de‐icer with the click of a button! In the past, all that was readily available were energy gulping 1000 watt to 1500 watt de‐icers; pond owners had no choice but to purchase these expensive to run de‐icers, even when they didn’t need it. We’ve solved this problem by creating a whole line of de‐icers along with a convenient zone chart for consumers to choose the correct de‐icer, every time! When it comes to ice free ponds, K&H Perfect Climate is the choice that makes cents.

Care & Instructions

Float or Submerse

To use your Thermo-Pond as a floating de-icer, use it as-is. To use it as a submersible de-icer, unscrew and remove the attached float ring.

Already Frozen Ponds

Using an Ice Auger

  • If ice has already formed on the surface of your pond, drill a hole in the ice with an ice auger. Do not chop through ice as the shock waves can damage or kill your fish.
  • Then place your heater through the hole and run your cord to a properly grounded outlet protecting the cord from damage.

Without an Ice Auger

  • If you do not have access to an ice auger, place a large pan or bucket with water on the surface of the ice. Place your heater into the container and plug the heater into a properly grounded outlet. The heater will heat the water and container, melting a hole in the pond ice.


  • Always keep safety as your number one priority. Never walk on thin ice.
  • Please consult your pond professional on tips for overwintering fish.

Product Q&A

What happens if I use a higher wattage deicer than needed in my pond?

The deicers are thermostatically controlled. This means, as long as you purchased the minimum wattage required for your zone and pond size, they will work fine.

Keep in mind that higher wattage models will use more electricity than the lower wattage models. For example, the 750 watt deicer will use three times the amount of electricity when running versus the 250 watt deicer.

There is a piece of Styrofoam in the ring. Do I leave it in?

To use this product as a floating de-icer, leave it as is. To use it as a submersed de-icer, simply unscrew and remove the float ring.

At what temperature should the de-icer turn on?

Our Thermo-Pond units are thermostatically controlled to keep the average water temperature just above freezing. They feature internal thermostats and will turn on and off as necessary to keep the pond from freezing over.
