For the first time I am planning on leaving the pond running all winter but I have shut down the 12000 gph and im running a small 3000 gph submersible from dead pool up to the stream. And the cistern pump is running up to dead pool. It's a whopping 4 degrees here today and the ice created the sculptures over the falls. The Bog is not running at this point but i am probably going to change that a run a temporary 2 inch line to the bog. I don't want to run the 12000 as it would probably chill the water too much. ill add a pic tomorrow . Well THE WARMTH AND RAINS RUINED THE ICE but i still have the pond up and running this winter which is a first for me, but my travels are over I hope for good.
THE FIRST IS JUST THE 420 GPH RECIRCULATING PUMP.

THE SECOND IS 3000 GPH OVER TWO FALLSS

Covid is going strong as ever where I live, so here I come back to the forums!

All the ponds are doing pretty well! I shut the raised one down for the winter, but it was running smoothly and that bog kept the water crystal clear. Can’t wait to get it up and going again in the spring.

As for my pond, the impeller on the pump seized and the pond iced over, but I have been able to get the ice open every few days, and the company sent a new pump out. So less smoothly, but just overwintering it.

Thanks for asking!
