There are also heaters that float on the surface of the pond but these
do NOT heat the water. Floating heaters create a round hole on the surface
of the ice which keeps oxygen coming in and toxins going out. If you
have fish and other pond animals then you will need a submersible pond
heater to help them get through the winter as this type of heater will
actually heat the water temperature. After a big snow storm make sure
to clear the snow off of the top layer of your pond to allow the floating
heater to work better.
Other devices that will help your pond survive through the winter include,
pond netting, wheat germ, pond domes, and much more.
