Ice Eaters®
Buy Now
Ice Eaters are the most energy efficient dock deicers available in Canada or the USA.

Ice Eater® Dock Bubbler Deicer by Powerhouse Inc. are the most energy efficient submersed thrust deicers and the industry standard in preventing dock damage in Canada. Ice Eater® deicers are designed to be used in the harsh Canadian climate and are used in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, PEI and Newfoundland by private marnas, small vessel owners and dock owners who want to prevent ice damage. The submersible motor of theIce Eater deicer, sometimes called a bubbler, keeps ice from damaging docks and boats.  Ice Eater® deicers will leave large areas of open water even in cold Canadian conditions and are also used to keep pump intakes and dam structures free from ice.

Ice Eater® Dock Bubbler Deicer by Powerhouse Inc. offers several sizes from 1/4 HP units using less than 3 amps of electricity to 3 HP units for industrial and commercial deicing, models, and mounting options of De-Icers to accommodate almost every application and condition.

With sizes of 1/2, 3/4, and 1hp and units available in 120V or optional  240V is available  Ice Eater® De-Icers easily fit your location and electrical requirements. Ice Eater® De-Icers can be suspended by ropes, mounted on an optional Universal Dock Mount, or attached to an optional Horizontal Float for operation in many conditions. Also, optional De-Icer Thermostata Controllers  can be added to the Ice Eater® De-Icing system to help control electric bills.

De-Icing is accurately referred to as an art form more than an exact science. Each application and location is different and there is no set rule in determining how many Ice Eater® are needed for a given area or which mounting option is the best. The effectiveness of your Kasco De-Icer depends on many factors. Keep in mind the following table is to be used as a general guideline and each situation is different. Please contact us to assist in sizing and location if needed.

* Small bodies of water, the Great Lakes, and extreme northern climates may see less open water areas. Typical ice opening will average 3 - 6  feet in diameter for every 12 inches to 18" inches of submergence depending on air temperatures, winds and Ice Eater positioning and angle.

Ice Eater® Dock Bubbler Deicer by Powerhouse Inc. come complete for suspended operation from a dock or boat in either a vertical or angled position. The angled operation by suspended method or with optional flotation unit produces an elongated pattern of agitated water. A vertical positioning produces a circular pattern. Vertical positioning of the De-Icer works well under boats and docks or between slips and boats.

Adjusting the angle of the Ice Eater suspension is done by simply looping one suspension rope back one or two ribs on the propeller cage. Angled operation can be used to de-ice shallow water areas. This will direct the flow warmer water from a deeper area into the shallower area. Remember, an Ice Eater De-Icer works because it draws warmer, denser water from the bottom and circulates it upward to the surface, preventing ice formation or melting existing ice.

It is often easier to de-ice a boat by installing the de-icer at or near the bow, angled toward the stern. If the water flow is directed toward the shore or a retaining wall, it will flair, forming a desirable"T" shape de-icing pattern.

In tidal waters, split the difference in water depth so the De-Icer is in shallow water at low tide and deep water at high tide. Or, tie your Ice Eater to the boat and allow the boat and Ice Eater to rise and fall with the tide.

When your power source is far from the pond use the Remote Valve Box System

It's Cheaper to Pipe Air than Electric. No power near the pond? No problem. Vertex's line of Remote Valve Box Systems allows installation of the cabinet wherever it is convenient. Simply locate the system cabinet where you do have power and deliver the air as far as needed through 1" PVC pipe. At the shoreline of the pond simply install a Vertex Remote Valve Box to divide the air into separate airlines.This will save the thousands of dollars in unnecessary costs.

The Vertex Large Lake Air8 XL5TM aeration system, designed for larger lakes and reservoirs, utilizes Vertex’s latest technology to provide the most aeration for your money. Four super-duty BrookwoodTM twin cylinder HighFlowTM compressors, housed in our rustproof aluminum outdoor cabinet, providing over 22 CFM of air, feeds eight of our bottom mounted XL5 AirStationsTM.

The rising force of millions of bubbles circulates the entire water column, entraining bottom water up to the surface allowing vital oxygen to be absorbed and poisonous gases expelled.
