This is good to know! The stock tank driver we used for our horse was placed inside a metal water trough... there’s no risk of these melting a plastic container, is there?
The stock tank deicer I use is rated for use in plastic so it will not melt it. It only turns on when the water is below 35 degrees and turns off when the water reaches 40 or 45 degrees.

That’s perfect. Thank you! I think we’ll probably use this method. We’re planning to install a rainwater collection system next year, and we could easily hook that into the tote or upgrade to a larger barrel or whatever!

A five gallon bucket with horizontal nipples. In the run. The bucket has a farm innovators 250 watt submersible heater. Each morning I work check to make sure the HNs are still functioning. This setup has worked flawlessly. We occasionally get down to negative Fahrenheit.
I just love your little weather station! Can you tell me the model #?
