Reviews
Heated Flatback Bucket is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 74.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from No ice buckets for me This bucket has saved me breaking ice all last year and bought another one for the new stall we added on. Very durable and love it has a tuck away compartment for cord when not in use
Date published: 2019-11-06
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the bucket but the cord is too short! Nice bucket but the cord was shorter than the other buckets we’ve been using and it barely makes it to the plug... which makes it very difficult to dump. At least 6 more inches is needed!
Date published: 2018-01-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heated bucket This make a huge difference the water is not freezing any longer.
Date published: 2018-01-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the long cord! This bucket does its job well! Kept my horse's water from freezing when the crazy Texas weather gave us several days in a row of below freezing temps. The cord is longer than that of other heated buckets I've seen, which is a huge plus!
Date published: 2018-01-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works perfectly, but cord is short This heated bucket looks nice and works well. As others have noticed, the cord is about a foot too short to reach the outlet without hanging at an angle.
Date published: 2018-01-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bucket Works great, keeps everything thawed. The cord is a little short but that wasn't an issue due to where our outlets are placed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bucket fine but cord too short The bucket was fine but the cord was shorter than it listed it as. I had to return it because I found another bucket with a longer cord. I went to return it and I had to pay the return shipping. Apparently it's not free shipping both ways on products this size. That seemed unclear to me when I purchased it. Shipping was $30 so it was just really unfortunate. I have always been a SmartPak fan but recently I have found I have had random issues like this.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Eh Ya know I have used these in the past at diffrent farms I have eworked at, and I was hoping for a better design with it being Yeats later, I like the bucket don't get me wrong but the cord is a few inches to short
Date published: 2016-10-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love how warm it stays! My horses drink more in the winter now that they each have one of these in their stalls! The water is noticeably warmer than the outside temperature and I've never had an issue in 5 years of use. Very happy with these buckets.
Date published: 2016-03-13
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay but could be better I was concerned if they would turn off or burn out if run dry. Factory rep could not really tell me how they worked. Said they could be dry for hours, but they get VERY hot if water level gets low. I'd prefer they turned off sooner.
Date published: 2016-02-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Durable and works well. I live in the snowbelt, east of Cleveland, Ohio. Our winters can be tough. This bucket is a great addition to my horses care and works great. No more frozen bucket!
Date published: 2016-02-04
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great This product works great for not letting the buckets freeze and keeping the water temperature more palatable for the horses during the winter. Only drawback is it does add to the electric bill substantially If using several of them.
Date published: 2016-01-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trustworthy We don't get really cold but have no heat in the barn. The bucket works great to make sure the horses have water at all times.
Date published: 2016-01-12
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not last I had it for last 2 winters in Georgia then stored it indoors over the summer. Went to use it this winter and it no longer works. It's a little pricey to have to replace every year or two!
Date published: 2015-12-20
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Careful with this bucket Unfortunately the bale wire isn't hidden from the horse. Mine got her tail caught in it, pulled away ripping out lots of hair and straightening the bale completely. Valley Vet has better designed buckets. I'll go back to those next time.
Date published: 2015-11-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Bucket Great heated bucket, easy to use and sold in a convenient 4 pack!
Date published: 2015-03-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A winter must! Love love love! No more breaking ice and getting cold, wet hands!
Date published: 2015-02-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great, no frozen water even w low temps I bought a bucket for each of my three horses back in December. They drink from the buckets with no issues. The temp has dropped below zero and still no frozen water. The one thing to watch for is the way the handle is attached to the bucket. Two horses, no problem, third horse is very mouthy. In February, he managed to chew off the black plastic protectors where the handle is attached (both sides I might add), and cut his lip. (Bored, I guess!) I recommend pinching back the handle with pliers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice large bucket I needed another set of heated buckets, these are working well.
Date published: 2015-01-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just What I Needed After last winter I knew I needed something to provide my ans my boarders horses with unfrozen water on those extremely cold nights when they are in stalls (24/7 turn out other wise). I ordered the 4 pack and I was amazed with how fast they shipped! The buckets are sturdy and I don't have to worry about the horses breaking them or the buckets cracking in the cold. The cord is nice and long and I know will last a long time with the protective coil around it. It keeps the water warm and encourages drinking. The only "bad" thing about it is that once filled with water the bucket becomes very heavy, not a problem for me, but my boarder is older and sometimes has a hard time carrying a full bucket.
Date published: 2015-01-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect Timing The weather has gotten so cold; this is the only bucket my horse has for water lately.
Date published: 2015-01-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saves money and sleep! I bought 2 of these buckets 5 years ago after a case of impaction colic. Just added another stall,so bought this one for the third horse. so nice to know the horses have warm water on cold nights, and no more midnight trips to the barn carrying jugs of hot water! These are great! SmartPak had the lowest price I could find on these buckets.
Date published: 2014-12-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more breaking ice in my bucket! I received a $10 coupon from SmartPak and decided to use it on a bucket that will make winter less painful for me this year! So far the temps in the barn haven't gone much below 30, but when they do, I am ready. The cord was a decent length and it wraps up in the bottom of the bucket so you can use it in the warmer months too.
Date published: 2014-12-11
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Heated bucket This is my second bucket. The first one didn't work. We haven't had any severe weather since the replacement has arrived. I have a blue one that is my favorite. I cannot find these anymore. My opinion is that the bucket does not have a large enough coil to keep the water from being too cold.
Date published: 2014-12-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect bucket for winter I bought theses buckets last year and loved them. Not only do I know my horses have access to water all night, but I don't have to chisel ice blocks!
Date published: 2014-12-01
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job well, needs a longer cord. This is a durable, well designed bucket that seems safe and works well. But the cord is too short. My horse definitely shows a preference for drinking water out of this bucket when the temps drop. Putting my own hand in this heated bucket, the water is a comfortable cool temperature, while the water feels like ice when I put my hand in the regular non-heated bucket next to it in her stall. Great purchase. Glad I spent the money on it this year.
Date published: 2014-11-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Large and sturdy Not yet cold enough to use heated buckets but purchased two because last winter caught me unprepared and they were sold out. Bigger than expected. One arrived with a small clip on the bottom broken off which holds the cord cover in place. Nothing a piece of duct tape won't fix but may exchange it. Otherwise happy with product.
Date published: 2014-10-31
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product, bad packaging All 4 buckets arrive in 1 box. Which would have been fine if there was material to separate them! It took 2 grown men about an hour to pry them all apart. Amazingly, all still worked when we tested them. But they are a little beat up now.
Date published: 2014-10-29
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heated Water Bucket After unpacking the bucket, I discovered a hole in the bottom. Send photos to SmartPak and they kindly replaced it, without asking me to return the damaged item. Great customer service!
Date published: 2014-02-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more frozen water buckets Wish I had come across this a couple years ago. So grateful for not having to deal with frozen water buckets in addition to all other issues the colder weather brings.
