I received the birdbath the day before a snow storm. We put it together after we read the directions. We didn't have any problems. It only took 20 minutes. We put small pebbles in baggies to weight the pedestal and put the baggies in the pedestal after we plugged the heater to the extension cord. Then put the bowl on top and screwed it on. We had not problems at all. The bottom is not level which they mentioned in the directions. So we put a small piece of cement under the bottom to level it. The water stays warm all during the night. The birds and I both love it. The birds had a good time playing around in it during the snow storm. I had a good time watching them. So glad we bought the birdbath.
After our ceramic bird bath froze I looked for a more weather appropriate birdbath. I found this one and not only is the color perfect, the shape and design are nice. Filled it with sand to weigh it down and both the birds and myself are pleased with this purchase!
My last bird bath de-icer held up for over 10 years and I am finally having to replace it. Even when it is well below freezing, the entire birdbath remains ice free. Well worth the money!
This is the best heated birdbath because the birds took their bath in it. It is well made...just the right size and not too deep-the little birds can enjoy it too. The birdbath is easy to clean,just use a soft brush and rinse. Thank you for a good product at a good price. We are so glad that we will be able to provide the birds with water in the winter...now they can have water all year.
