Low Voltage Ice Melting for pond
We run a resort here in northern Wisconsin and we have an old boat house that must be kept ice free in the winter. Currently we use three 600W propellers running around five hours a day each to keep the water moving and the ice from forming. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a low voltage replacement that could be powered by solar/solar + battery. I'm trying to avoid an inverter and I have a bunch of batteries that are in the boats during the summer and could be repurposed during the winter. I was considering trolling motors but I don't know if they move enough water.
