Protecting Ontario's docks, boats and boathouses from the winter ice damage
We are full-spectrum all-season waterfront and pond services. We sell, install and service all of our products. Proudly serving Muskoka, GTA, Central and Southern Ontario.
Thawline™ Bubbler Deicer Systems use flexible, linear, self-sinking or non-weighted airline hose known as Bubble Tubing® to create a wall of bubbles that rises from the basin floor, up through the water column.
As the bubbles rise they bring with them the warmer, dense (4C) water from below up to the surface where cooler, lighter water and ice are forming. The warm water in concert with the bubble action (that breaks surface tension) keeps an ice free zone whose size varies based on ambient air temperature.
As the water moves away from the energy source (diffuser) it then sinks back to the bottom creating a deicing loop.
As it is impractical to remove large docks or boats from the water, Kasco de-icers can help prevent serious ice property damage due to jacking/lifting, and ice expansion. It can also help prevent winter fish-kill conditions in ponds and lakes.
Kasco dock bubblers are submerged thrust deicers that use an impeller system to create lateral or horizontal movement of water. This water agitation inhibits ice formation near structures or shoreline that require protection from the potential damage of ice or simply to keep an area free of ice for industrial or commercial applications.
