That's about as low energy as you can get.
Heating is very inefficient.
Is there any way to insult the tanks?
Spray on expanding foam for example.
The energy use would be much lower then.

Different principle. Bubblers use thermal heat from the ground to pump warmer water near the bottom of a lake or pond to the top.
A tank of water is different. It doesn't have the thermal mass of the earth working to keep it warm at the lower depths.
