About Dogwood Animal Shelter:

Volunteers have been the driving force behind Dogwood animal shelter since its beginning.  Through auctions and sales, a handful of dedicated people raised enough money to build a small facility and in 1976, the badly needed shelter was established as a 501(c)3.  It was filled beyond capacity almost immediately.  From the start, Dogwood offered low cost spays and neuters, and since 1997, when the board of directors declared Dogwood a no-kill facility, it has steadily expanded that program.   When the long awaited new shelter facility, located near Osage Beach was built in 2005, a spay/neuter clinic was included so that the surgeries could be done on site.

Reasons to Buy a De-Icer for Your Dock

As we near the freezing temperatures of late fall and early winter, it's time to prepare for ice around your dock. Especially if your dock is located in shallow waters of a cove, you may experience damage due to the water icing over. Our boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks has you covered. Not only do we build quality lifts to help protect your boat during the winter months, we also have de-icers to help prevent ice from forming and causing damage to your investments. Learn more about our de-icer below!

Less Worry

If you have a de-icer you don't have to worry about the water freezing by your dock. The de-icer will keep the water moving, therefore, preventing the ice from becoming solid. This can also help prevent you from having to go down to your dock in the freezing temperatures and checking on your dock all the time. When it's that cold outside you should be able to stay in the warmth of your home.

Reduce Chance of Damage

Ice can cause dock, lift, and/or boat damage in a number of ways. If your dock has ice all around it, it is unable to move like it naturally does. This can actually cause your dock lines to snap due to excessive tension. Your dock floats can also be damaged from ice forming against or hitting the tubs. Ice can cause your boat lift to malfunction and in some cases leave your boat to fall into the water.

Protect Your Investments

You spend a lot of money on your water toys - protect what you've worked so hard for with a de-icer. This can help protect your dock, boat, and lift by lowering the chance of ice to form and causing damage to your property.

How Our De-Icer Works

Kasco De-Icers are known throughout the world for their quality, durability, and effectiveness. The Kasco D-Series De-Icer became a staple of the industry by tackling some fiercely challenging applications. The de-icer works by moving large volumes of warm, bottom water to the surface. This eliminates and prevents ice formation around boats, docks, pilings, bulk heads or any other property you need to be protected from damaging ice formation. The water flow eliminates damaging ice expansion and ice jacking, as well as provides excellent aeration for winter months. The unique design of this product provides superior flow and excellent energy efficiency to solve your de-icing needs in a cost effective manner. By using a Kasco De-Icer, you are ensuring your property is protected from the harsh winter conditions.

Now that you know why you should invest in a de-icer and how our Kasco de-icers work, you're ready to make your purchase! Contact the best boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks to get yours today. Not only do we provide quality lifts, Summerset Boat Lifts provides a number of products to help protect your boat and dock. We want to help keep your investment protected this winter so you can easily hit the water come spring!
