Overwintering Equipment

GET READY FOR WINTER – WITH WATER WORKS PONDS.
The end of summer is time to think ahead about your koi and goldfish during the winter. Should the fish be brought indoors during the winter or left outside in the pond? There are pros and cons for both overwintering methods. The team at WaterWorksPonds will be happy to help determine which option is best for you.
There is currently not a recognized overwintering program for our zone three climate. Majority of the information available in magazines or the internet pertains to the milder winter of the Northern United States where the majority of the market demand is for winterizing pond equipment. By provincial code, most ornamental ponds in Alberta are less than 24 inches deep.
Over the years, WaterWorksPonds has experimented with overwintering koi and goldfish outdoors.
With trial and error comes experience. The first-hand experience that you and your pond fish can benefit from.
Aerators help oxygenate pond water which promotes healthier fish and aquatic life. Proper Aeration during the winter season will also help break down fish waste and cut a honeycombed hole through ice as it covers the pond. This, in turn, will release gases poisonous to over wintering fish. The pulling action of the bubble curtain to the surface will also provide better circulation of warmer water at the bottom of the pond.

Directional Check Valves
Water tends to climb aeration airlines when your aeration pump is powered down. Airflow check valves allow oxygen to travel outwards from the aeration pump while preventing water from traveling into the lines when not in use to prevent potential water damage to your aeration unit.

Air Stone Diffusers
Designed to improve oxygen absorption, these 2″ airstones create ultra-fine air bubbles that infuse oxygen directly into the water column.
