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

* 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
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
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
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
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.

Deicing in Canada
Aquatic Systems, Vertex De-icing systems
Such bottom diffuser systems can do more than improve oxygen levels
and water quality but are also ideal for deicing. Vertex Aeration
Systems come in a full range of sizes that can suited to deicing small
or large bodies of water as well as industrial barges, intakes or
marinas. Also used extensively in industrial wastewater aeration where
cost-effective strategies are required. Vertex systems are low-maintenance
and can be installed quickly by a private pond owner or an industrial

The Vertex Diffuser Assembly has distinct advantages over other
bottom-mount and lake-bed aeration diffusers:
More energy efficient die cut perforations
• “Delta” surface pattern increases active surface area and aeration
efficiency during low and moderate air flows
• Reformulated proprietary membrane compound increases flexibility,
wear, and clog resistance
• Larger, stronger diffuser ring improves membrane retention and service
• Redesigned and strengthened diffuser body and membrane backing plate
• StableTrak™ technology increases lift velocity
• FlowControl™ technology equalizes airflow to each disk
• Base unit has a hollow chamber design for adding inert pea gravel
• Lipped base design prevents diffuser from settling into soft sediments

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