K&H has redefined the pond de-icer market with the new
Thermo-Pond Perfect Climate Deluxe. This revolutionary de-icer can be
floated or submerged to maintain a hole in pond ice and help fish
survive the winter. It's available in 250, 750, and 1500 models,
allowing pond owners to use only the wattage needed for their ponds by
following our convenient Zone Chart.
Float or Submerge
Now you can float or submerge your pond de-icer without purchasing two
separate units. To use the Thermo-Pond Perfect Climate Deluxe as a
floating de-icer, leave the float ring attached. To use it as a
submersed de-icer, simply unscrew and remove the float ring. This
simple process requires only a few seconds and allows consumers to
change the functionality of their deicers at any time.
Multiple Wattage Options
With the K&H Thermo-Pond Perfect Climate Deluxe Pond De-Icer you
have the freedom to select the proper wattage for your needs. Choose
from 250, 750, and 1500 watt models.
Thermostatic Temperature Control
Internal thermostats automatically monitor water temperature and turn
the unit on and off to keep the average water temperature just above
freezing. Our unique technology ensures that your pond de-icer will
only run as often as needed to maintain a hole in the ice. In fact,
it's thermostatically controlled to never get hot when properly
submerged in water. Unlike some other heaters, Thermo-Pond products
will never burn a pond liner or plastic pond.
This product has been tested and certified by MET Labs to meet their high standards for electrical product safety.
As with any electrical product used in wet locations, please plug the
Thermo-Pond Perfect Climate Deluxe into a ground fault circuit
interrupter (GFCI) outlet.
Gas Exchange Keeps Fish Alive
An open hole in pond ice allows proper gas exchange and helps fish
survive the winter. The Thermo-Pond Perfect Climate Deluxe facilitates
this exchange by maintaining a hole in pond ice, even in sub-zero
weather. Add this K&H de-icer to your pond for a healthier aquatic
environment this winter.
To ensure that your fish have plenty of livable area, please operate
the Thermo-Pond in ponds with a depth of at least 18 inches.
Safe For Fish
Even when they do come in contact with the heating element of a K&H
deicer, your fish are quite safe. The heating element will never get
hot to the touch as long as it is properly submerged in water. You can
actually reach down into the water and put your finger on the heating
element and it will not burn you. In the middle of winter when it gets
really cold youll find your fish huddling around the deicer to keep
warm, but the deicer will never harm them.

Already Frozen Ponds
Using an Ice Auger
Without 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.
- 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
- Always keep safety as your number one priority. Never walk on thin ice.
- Please consult your pond professional on tips for overwintering fish.
