Question about Beckett Water Gardening Water Garden Accessories Pond De-Icer Model PH100

1 Answer

De-icer must have a short

I only used the Beckett ph100 de-icer for about 1 month last year and I cleaned and stored it carefully. Now, when I try to plug it in, it keeps popping the circuit breaker within the outlet. This does not happen with any other equipment plugged into this same outlet. This de-icer was a replacement for one used the previous year that would not work after storage. I am completely disgusted with this product. I paid more than $60.00 for it and between the original and the replacement, I have only gotten about 2 1/2 months use.

The best solution to ice in garden ponds is to keep the water moving as moving water will not freeze. Depending upon the size of your garden pond you may try adding a fountain. All major pump brands carry small fountain pumps that include various fountain spray nozzles/heads or you can buy the pump and then purchase a Fountain Head Kit separately. The fountain will provide 1 - movement of water at the surface, 2- aeration for the pond, 3- pleasing sounds year round, not to mention the 4- aesthetic value. The added bonus is that you will not have to worry too much about shorts if you use a submersible pump. So try dumping the deicer and go for a fountain.

We have a Beckett Pond Heater and when we placed it in the pond this year it went to the bottom and will not float. It seems to heat, but we are expecting thick ice. Any suggestions?


The purpose of the heater is maintain an open water space on the surface for gases to exchange into the water. Whatever was in place to keep this unit afloat must be replaced (ie Styrofoam). Or, if the the unit has an air chamber to keep it afloat perhaps the element burned through it and it's filling with water.....try to plug it with some epoxy glue.

Where can I find a replacement impeller for a 10 year old beckett water pump? The only model information I have is "798" stamped on the out side of the casing.


I'll bet you need to buy a new pump.Most pond pumps from Beckett are sealed and the impeller can't be or should not be changed.

Pond pump trips circuit breaker


The circuit breaker trips because there is an electrical short in the pump itself or in the wire feeding the pump. A cause of this could be a bare wire, or a crack in a wire. Remove the pump and put it in a five gallon pail of water and test it. If it still trips the breaker you will know the problem is in the pump or the cord to the pump.
