    I am looking to build a new degreaser tank this year. I currently have been using a stock tank with a water heater element. Do you think that it is more cost affective to run a bucket heater instead? If not would you recommend a 240volt or 110volt heater element? I am trying to cut down some costs this year and keep the wife happier.
     
  2. You should set it up depending on how many you degrease each year. I do around 100 per year and my set up is all 110 volt. It would be hard to do a lot using bucket heaters imo.

    Mine is far from perfect but I use a 75 gallon rubber stock tank. I have a 1500 watt heater with thermostat built in installed in the side about halfway up. I put 2 submersible pumps from tractor supply in side and just let them circulate the water. The temp of the water is easily kept at 112-115 degrees. I put 4 five gallon buckets in the water with 2 heads per bucket. The electric bill isn't much more during deer season versus summer months when degreaser is shut off.
