    I have a couple of the bigger livestock tanks but will this thing also work in a 55 gallon drum? It is a steel drum so it wont burn.

    My mouse wont right click for some reason so I couldnt copy the site address for you to click on but here is the informatin on it

    SKU Number: 2170495
    Manufacturers Number: 7521

    Stock Tank Heater | Brand : API | Positioning : Floating | Watts : 1500 W | Product Width : 9 in. | Product Length : 8-3/4 in. | Product Height : 6 in. | Product Weight : 3.5 lb. | Cord Length : 6 ft. | Cord Guard : Yes | Warranty : 1-Year Limited

    Any advice or information on it will help alot. A box will lay there and let you print any thing on it. LOL Are they any good.

    Yes Pam thats it. I am just wondering if it will work in smaller barrels I guess it would with the thermostat. I suppose it only comes on when the water temp gets down close to freezing. I would think maybe it would not run as much in a smaller container. :chin: :shrug:

    That one will melt your drum if you don;t use a cage with it.

    Look for one that safe to use in a plastic stock tank.

    I have several of these and they would work for your drum .... don't use any of the floating types on plastic or rubber tanks as they need a wire cover. There is a built in thermostat so it only comes on when it is close to freezing.
