Welcome to the forum!

Very pretty pond. I don't use uv lights so can't help.
Does it freeze where you are?

Cute! I have a Kim’s Pond too. It’s probably working, and you should see a glow light indicator when it’s dark. The great folks on this forum convinced me to put plants in my pond to control algae, and it works like a dream!

My plants include cyperus, taro, Louisiana iris, corkscrew rush, butterfly ginger, and mint. They are on shelves or plant stands with their tops about an inch below the water line. If you do a search for plants on this forum you’ll get other ideas. What kind of fish and how many do you have?
