Kasco Dock De-Icer / Water Circulator - 1/2 HP with 50' Cord
Kasco water circulators provide valuable benefits to you in every season of the year.
In the winter months, Water Circulators can be used to keep areas of water open to help prevent winterkill on fish populations and protect docks and permanent structures from ice damage
A Kasco water circulator will mix the water and move warmer, bottom water to the surface to keep an area of the pond open. Only 1% of the ponds total surface area needs to be ice free to prevent winter-kill situations. The cold water will become oxygenated by coming in contact with the air and prevent winter-kill on your pond.
Kasco water circulators positioned around docks and/or boats can prevent costly ice damage by keeping an area ice free around your valuables. Depending on your situation, they can be mounted in three different methods (shown below)
In the spring and fall, the can help reduce thermal stratification in deeper bodies of water to help prevent or limit the negative effects of pond turnover.
During the summer months, they are used to mix and agitate stagnant water to help reduce aquatic plant growth and inhibit mosquito reproduction.
