How to Heat Outside Water Troughs
Having a hard time keeping your outside water troughs from freezing? There are few methods you can use to keep the water from freezing on your animals. First, you can buy smaller water troughs and fill them half way each morning and then dump then at night so the water doesn’t freeze. You can also buy a water tank that has a place to add a heating element. Simply plug the heating element in each night to keep the water from freezing. Keep them plugged in during the especially cold days as well. Some water tanks don’t come with an option to add a heating element. In this case, you can buy a floating heating element or one that sinks to the bottom of the trough. Read the instructions carefully for installation and use in order to keep your animals from being shocked. Ask your animal hospital Marietta, GA for aid as well.
