bucket cozy
« on: February 09, 2019, 06:05:06 pm »

I needed to insulate my old guy's feed bucket so his wet mash wouldn't freeze up so fast when it hangs on the wall. I had an old polyethylene camping mat that I cut up to wrap the bottom and all around the bucket. I used duct tape to hold it all together and onto the bucket. I connected the insulation to the handle by wrapping duct tape around where the metal handle attaches to the bucket.

Isn't that a heated bucket? Although I think your invention is pretty clever, why not plug the bucket in?

I did plug it in but the contents still froze solid very quickly. The insulation at least slows down the process.

Must be the heating element is no good, or maybe the outlook you plugged into wasn't working. That happened to us last week when we didn't realize a ground fault breaker was thrown.
