What to Look for When Buying a Dock De-Icer

What to Look for When Buying a Dock De-Icer

Ice is far more dangerous to your dock than you might first assume. Ice jacking, winter kill, and ice expansion can destroy your fish, dock, and boats.

How? We'll dive into the details below, but ice can cause havoc to your dock. While some larger ships will be able to withstand the cold, your dock and smaller watercraft are in danger.

Dock de-icers are your saving grace. Dock de-icers pull warmer water from below the surface up to the top to keep the water above freezing point and to melt ice that has already formed. By keeping the water around your dock warm, structures will be undamaged, and boats will be safe. De-icers can even create a haven for fish during the winter as portions of your lake or pond freeze over.

Without de-icers or some other method of keeping the water from freezing, fish in smaller lakes or ponds can be totally killed off in a harsh winter. The phenomenon is also known as 'winter kill.'

De-icers are essential if you own a dock in an area with sub-freezing temperatures. But how do you choose a de-icer? What separates a good one from a bad one?

This article will answer all that and more. Keep reading to keep your dock, boats, and fish safe this winter.
