DrDave said:Yes this applies to goldies.
I don't use or believe that UV's are necessary in a properly maintained pond. If your pond needs it, then you are doing something wrong.
mailman62 said:will probably turn off uv , I was planning to run one of my pumps to direct water at surface to keep from freezing , will cold freezing water harm pump running at bottom of pond? thanks
DrCase said:Raising the pump up off the bottom for winter is always a good idea
Especially if some thing goes wrong in the freezing weather
