You wanted cheap, and I did suggest the dual action massage with heater thing.

But that's just one possible direction for looking for something that might work better for you.

Know anyone with a used pet pad heater, and no pet any longer? (No double meaning meant there. I swear. Get it for 2bjr.)

Re: water bucket heater


2buck, if ya really want to go cheap,,,, pick up an old hot water heater, that someone has put on the side of the road, after a re-model. Take it to work and run it off the GC's power pole.

Re: water bucket heater


I know its an old thread but can't figure out why you would want the submersible heater and the problems with it. If it is that cold, move your buckets closer to the heater that you would no doubt have on site.

What problems with a submersible heater are you talking about? Do you mean the huge hassle of plugging it in, and getting hot water without having to plan hours in advance?

Well when someone tells me the water gets almost boiling and that they will burn out if you runout of water it concerns me. Not to mention an extra electrical device plugged in beside water taking up room in the bucket. Just dont think you need one that badly when you already have a heater or two on site. Hell we pack enough tools in and out of worksites without adding ones we dont need.

Haa - I know what a submersible heater is, Ive used them elsewhere so can come to my own conclusions without going out and buying one for my drywall buckets.


Thank you for taking the time to complain about me not using one and talking about them anyway.

Not really a tool you need to buy to try, either you know you need one or not

But I do get where mudshark is coming from.

Our spray guys use them in the winter, since the fresh water their using is extremely cold. But throughout Canada, they use those box electric heaters (b/c of safety rules over salamanders etc). If you want hot/warm water, we tapers stick those heaters in front of those buckets. and there is a point where you can over burden yourself with tools. I'm day 2 in a rich mans basement, making 100 yard trips to get tools in the house, and still have not got my coffee maker in the house yet, hopefully I can get in in tomorrow
