Winter Pond Maintenance

This issue suggests that pond pumps are removed and cleaned for the winter period.

Are pumps unnecessary during this period?

    Pumping water around while it is freezing, will result in the pump siezing and breaking.

     Cold water holds more dissolved oxygen than warm water, and the fish only respire slowly in colder temperatures.

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3
