K&H has redefined the pond de-icer market with the new Thermo-Pond Perfect Climate Deluxe. This revolutionary de-icer can be floated or submerged to maintain a hole in pond ice and help fish survive the winter. It's available in 250, 750, and 1500 models, allowing pond owners to use only the wattage needed for their ponds by following K&H's convenient Zone Chart.

Float or Submerge

Now you can float or submerge your pond de-icer without purchasing two separate units. To use the Thermo-Pond Perfect Climate Deluxe as a floating de-icer, leave the float ring attached. To use it as a submersed de-icer, simply unscrew and remove the float ring. This simple process requires only a few seconds and allows consumers to change the functionality of their deicers at any time.

Multiple Wattage Options

With the K&H Thermo-Pond Perfect Climate Deluxe Pond De-Icer you have the freedom to select the proper wattage for your needs. Choose from 250, 750, and 1500 watt models.

Please consult our zone chart below to determine the wattage needed for your climate and application.

Thermostatic Temperature Control

Internal thermostats automatically monitor water temperature and turn the unit on and off to keep the average water temperature just above freezing. Our unique technology ensures that your pond de-icer will only run as often as needed to maintain a hole in the ice. In fact, it's thermostatically controlled to never get hot when properly submerged in water. Unlike some other heaters, Thermo-Pond products will never burn a pond liner or plastic pond.


This product has been tested and certified by MET Labs to meet their high standards for electrical product safety.

As with any electrical product used in wet locations, please plug the Thermo-Pond Perfect Climate Deluxe into a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) outlet.

Gas Exchange Keeps Fish Alive

An open hole in pond ice allows proper gas exchange and helps fish survive the winter. The Thermo-Pond Perfect Climate Deluxe facilitates this exchange by maintaining a hole in pond ice, even in sub-zero weather. Add this K&H de-icer to your pond for a healthier aquatic environment this winter.

To ensure that your fish have plenty of livable area, please operate the Thermo-Pond in ponds with a depth of at least 18 inches.

Safe For Fish

Even when they do come in contact with the heating element of a K&H deicer, your fish are quite safe. The heating element will never get hot to the touch as long as it is properly submerged in water. You can actually reach down into the water and put your finger on the heating element and it will not burn you. In the middle of winter when it gets really cold you’ll find your fish huddling around the deicer to keep warm, but the deicer will never harm them.

Works well to keep hole in Ice

I feared for my Koi's life it has been so cold this past winter. This heater device was so easy to set up, worked immediately, and allowed me to be worry-free. It melted a hole in the ice just like it said it would and allowed me to keep my koi healthy and safe. It floats on top of the water column and the heating element is well protected by the cage around it. We purchased the 1500W unit which I think is the largest and would recommend.
