The Ice Eater, the original De-Icer, is the leader in quality, durability, and performance. It is designed to prevent ice from forming around boats, marinas, docks, and piers as well as effectively melting existing ice by breaking the surface with a continuous current of warmer bottom water.
How it works
The Ice Eater’s propeller draws up warmer subsurface water and deflects it to the surface creating a constant circulation of warmer water that prevents ice formation and melts existing ice.
The design of the Ice Eater’s venturi shroud (white housing) with outwardly flared ends, provides more upward thrust & draws warmer water from greater depths than other conventional de-icers.
Why buy the original de-icer?
Ice Eater is shipped complete with suspension lines and shackles. Therefore, it can be taken out of the box, hung from a boat, dock, or pier and plugged in.
- Unlike Other De-Icers, the Ice Eater Does Not Require Additional Hardware in Order to Obtain the Desired De-Icing Pattern.
- Patented Heavy-Duty PVC Venturi Housing is Designed for Superior Water Flow and Protection of the Motor and Propeller
- Custom Designed and Engineered for Maximum Efficiency and Performance in All Climates.
- Agitates More Fresh-Water & Salt-Water Than Any Other De-Icer on the Market.
- Bronze End-Bell Ensures a Long Life Without Cracking or Warping.
- Environmentally Friendly Dielectric Lubricating Fluid is Non-Toxic and Biodegradable.
- Best Warranty in the Industry! 3-Year Warranty
