Key Features and Functionality
Subsurface Water Circulation: At the heart of the Bearon Aquatics Ice Eater is its patented Venturi-styled housing and propeller system. This unique design draws up warmer subsurface water and propels it toward the surface. By doing so, it creates a constant circulation of warmer subsurface water and colder surface water.
Preventing Ice Formation: The magic of the Ice Eater lies in its ability to keep the water in motion. As warm water rises to the surface and cold water sinks, it effectively prevents further ice formation. This continuous circulation also contributes to the melting of existing ice.
Adjustable: Using the dock mounting system, units can be hung from the end of docks or boat houses, approximately 3 feet below the water’s surface. The Ice Eater can be adjusted to point upwards, creating a large round opening, or set on an angle to create a long, thinner ice opening ideal for boats and waterways.
Versatility: To enhance the Ice Eater’s versatility, consider using a thermostat to regulate its operation on warmer winter days. This can help you save money by only using it when necessary. Some customers also opt for timers to control ice formation around docks or boat houses, providing an additional layer of convenience and cost savings.
