Understandably, lakeshore property owners want to protect docks and boathouses from ice damage. The use of a bubbler or ice eater can be an effective way to do that. However, serious consequences to improperly used equipment may ultimately cost more than the price of fixing a dock.
Bubblers and ice eaters are meant to keep ice away from a dock. Keeping ice ten feet from your dock is sufficient to avoid damage. Unfortunately, too many systems create areas of open water that far exceed what is necessary, thereby creating a hazard to people and animals.
