KASCO MARINE

De-Icers

Protect your vessel against the damaging effects of ice.

Kasco De-Icers circulate subsurface water (which is warmed by geothermal heat) to the surface to melt ice and prevent its formation. De Icers can be hung from a vessel, dock or other flotation device and positioned to move warmer water from a deeper channel to the shallower area where your boat is moored. This helps to protect your boat and dock from lifting damage due to "ice jacking" and the shearing and crushing damage caused by ice expansion. Many factors affect the size of the open water area. In general, the 1/2hp model keeps a 50' dia. area from freezing while the 3/4hp model keeps a 75' dia. area ice free. De Icers may also be used during the summer months to eliminate stagnate water and improve water quality. Motor assemblies are sealed in an oil bath for long life, and feature ball bearings for smooth operation. All exposed metal is made from non-corroding stainless steel. Each assembly includes a 25'L power cord designed for low temperatures and a zinc anode for corrosion protection and a grounded three-prong plug. Optional thermostat/controller cycles De-Icer automatically to save energy.

  • Circulate water from beneath your vessel to the surface, causing turbulence that eliminates ice formation
  • 1/2hp model keeps a 50'dia. area from freezing; 3/4hp model keeps a 75'dia. area from freezing
  • Motor assemblies are sealed for long life

          Comments about De Icers:

          Worked great to keep the water from freezing around my dock, the only problem would be if the water is shallow which my area is I had to chop ice around the edge of dock during the very cold air in Feb other then that it did the job of keeping ice away from my dock and prevent damage.

              Comments about De Icers:

              Kept our boat in water for the first time this winter; disaster would have struck if not for this deicer. Kasco makes a well designed, easy to use product. The power cord and ties lines which are part of the purchase package are more than sufficient. The thermostat controller is a time saving complement for ease of use.

              Comments about De Icers:

              The unit works as claimed in the ads. Used on a 38' Pursuit. Didn't realize that the plug at the unit might need to be periodically sealed. Water got into unit, and corrded the leads. Expensive to replace the entire unit, when if I had known to check the entry leads, this unit could still be in use after 5 years.
