    I've never considered a security camera. My pond is pretty close to the house and I can see it from my kitchen and bedroom windows really well. (Just can't make out if there is water flowing in the pond breather tube.) Now an underwater camera - that I have thought about! You have one of those too, don't you @addy1 ?

    I have two, one started leaking so I pulled it, the other was working fine but a lightening strike wiped out the power supply I need to find another one, i.e. find where I put the leaking camera with its supply.Or we have a box of supplies, just need to find a matching one. On my long list of to do's. I usually don't run it in the winter, the lens gets clouded over under the ice.

    it does not work on my newer dvr so therefore have to run it with my older one.

    My son wants to add a motion thing to each of my cameras that will switch the tv view to that one camera when there is some type of movement from a heat source .He looked up all the parts for it after a geek friend of his did it to his security cameras .To me what he is saying is like a foreign language

    Ahhhh, tis truly a thing of beauty....NOT - ha ha! I only have three 2 x 6 boards, that's it. They wouldn't fit inside the cement blocks the way I wanted, so I doubled the blocks and put them on top, to get the height I wanted. I am still using the 2 inch PVC pipes and I also have some criss crossed over the pond....as air stones , Pond Breather and de-icer, are attached to them.

    It's 60 here today and since Mother Nature isn't able to provide water changes with the pond covered, I decided to add some fresh water. I usually over flow the pond for awhile, but it began over flowing immediately...then I realized there isn't much / any evaporation with it covered.

    It's an interesting experiment :)

    My pond, so far, has not needed any water added. In fact I never add water in the winter. It is not 100% ice covered, today what ice there was is melting fast. See a few fish here and there, no bodies!

    No bodies is a good thing - ha ha! I've had to add water in the winter before, only thing I can think of is the wind caused some evaporation.
