Winter Pond Trouble
I live next to my parents in Pa., and I've found that any time my father come to me with news of the ponds its usually bad. I have two ponds, one newly constructed at the end of the season this year. The problem arose with my smaller pond. The one with all my fish.
My smaller pond is 2000 gallons and only two feel deep. This pond I have had for four years now. I must say out of those four years, this winter is the coldest. For the pond I run a small submergible pump on a one foot shelf and a pond heater. My flow of the pump has completely domed over, and my pond heater has stopped working. So as right now, I do not have an opening in the ice.
I have just read an article, this is from a garden pond contactor. I found it interesting.
