Thermostatically-controlled pond de-icer keeps an opening in the ice
Allows proper gas exchange to help ensure winter survival of pond fish
Decorative faux stone housing conceals an energy-efficient, thermostatically controlled pond de-icer. Turns on automatically to keep a small area of your pond free of ice so harmful gasses can escape from the opening. Helps ensure winter survival for goldfish, koi, and other hardy pond fish. Effective to minus 20°F. 300 watts. Measures 10-1/2" x 5-1/2". 15 foot cord. UL-Listed.
Please click on "More Information" for installation instructions.
The de-icer should be placed at the northwest corner of the pond, up against the liner. In large or deep ponds, place unit in the shallowest part of the pond, preferably near a bank.
Use 1 Pond De-Icer for every 150 square feet of pond surface.
Having an area free of ice is crucial for koi ponds or ponds with fish to allow proper gas exchange. Without an opening in the ice the supply of dissolved oxygen is depleted. Use our de-icer comparison chart to chose the right de-icer for your pond.
Getting your pond ready for winter really begins in the fall. Water temperature, rather than air temperature, is the important indicator of when it's best to make changes to your pond. Use our Winter Survival Guide to get prepared for the season.
As winter approaches, you will want to make sure your pond system is clean and operating at 100% efficiency. You will also want to make sure that the water quality is as good as it can be. Use this article to learn how.
