    i agree with all solutions here. i personally like to make the ice into managable chunks to remove it faster. works for everything. hot water is best.

    I'm working on a set up now that I think will work. I've got a 30 barrel will have a dip tube in one "Bung" with a quick connect for a hose that I put together.In the other smaller bung, a connection for a "air hose".

    Fill the drum with hot water and pressurize with constant C02 or nitrogen pressure.

    Hose is set up with a spray handle.

    Chunks...yea, that's how I do it. After settling in to the hour-long or so task at eating away a terribly iced up coil - just YOU, your pump-up sprayer and that ice...it becomes almost therapeutic. I've been told I need therapy anyway, so that must be good...

    Ya know, I've had a similar idea brewing for spraying leak soap and coil cleaners...

    Garbage can full of hot water and use a little hose and siphon it out. Works great. Beats running back and forth with multiple buckets. I like the idea of a pump though! Don't risk taking a drink of garbage can water haha

    When I did supermarket work, it was the responsibility of the store to de-ice.

    depends.

    freezer run the defrost thaw in no time.
    coolers run the fan and wait
    Grab a spray bottle from ur local store and fill hot water and spray the hell out of it. it may take long but it gets it done safely

    * i use to torch it... but after a few times i noticed that i burnt wires and caused more pain for myself. running the hot water is the best*
    Get er Done!

    Do what has to be done
    when it has to be done
    as well as it has to be done
    And doing it all the time.
