Pros: Heavy Duty, Keeps water from freezing, holds lots of water
Cons: none so far
We are into our 2nd winter with this bucket and so far it works great!! It was such a pain in the butt having to bust through ice or switch out water containers every day. Now with this bucket, even the toughest WV weather is tamed and each day we go out to unfrozen water bucket. I highly recommend this product.
