tried covering my tanks with lids or covers. steam causes mold and discolors antlers. i only cover my tanks when i do antlerless animals. i also use rubbermade stock tanks . i have replaced one of them for cracking. you can buy though tractor supply and on the reviews from there, folks are having multi problems with them cracking.degreasing tanks were inside my shop and started causing too much mold so move them outside under covered area. running bucket heaters in them. will get pics later

IF you run tanks inside as many do you will need a dehumidifier or a heavy duty exhaust fan. I picked up a 12" louvered 3 speed fan on egay for less than 100.00. Could not degrease inside without it.

Covers DO change antler color and mold!

My room is like a freaking rain forest every morning, water everywhere, but I degrease 24-7-365 all night and day long.  I run a dehumidifier but am putting in exahust fans soon.  I think when you have 300 gallons of heated water you are always going to have issues with humidity unless you can move a lot of air, but then you are going to have heat problems, thank god I am in CO where its drier than a piece of toast.

I cover mine with the freezer lid. I have not had a problem with mold as of yet. Plus the thermostat never has to run for very long.

I have had mold grow in the enclosed freezer tank on antlers.  It did wipe right off.  I have heard of people putting bags around the antlers and wrapping them tight to solve this and also heard about covering them in something like petrolium jelly or whatever.  I haven't tried either so can't vouch for a fix.

Is there any advantage to using a longer heating element? I've found them up to 14" long. The one I use now is around 5".

Lol! As many that come to mind. Ha!

Seriously though, I've started making a few connections with ranchers and I have some BIG projects in mind. To meet me soon to be acquired size needs, I'm covering all my bases. The degreasing set ups are something I'm very interested in and an trying to get as much info and ideas as I can.

You sound bothered RD

Trapper, if you have BIG projects, consider the heat exchanger method. It can be customized to any size tank you have. I have one tank that is 250 gallons and I can heat that when I need to with my system. I just put quick disconnects on it and take it off when I am done with it.
