    isopropanol,aquarium heaters.i store my water butts under a lean to & when it gets really cold, I use a paraffin light which produces enough heat to stop freezing.it can be a fire risk if not secured correctly tbh.

    Yeh I've got two aquarium heaters that I've squeezed into a piece of foam. So I just throw them into my tank so they float and heat the water
