    Heat your pool and aerate at the same time!

    For those of you not familiar, the Reddy Heater is a kerosene heater that uses a large fan to blow a mist of fuel past a spark plug which continuously ignites the mist. Cranks out a lot of hot air and makes a roar like a jet engine when in operation.

    I think that was an extension cord off the back of that unit, which definitely makes it fall in the Do Not Try This At Home category. If it was kerosene - who knows - heat & mosquito control in one handy unit might just catch on.

    It's an extension cord. The fan and plug run on electricity.

    I've got to admit I'd like to see what happened when they turned it on.
