Pond De-Icers

Keep plenty of oxygen flowing into your pond all year, even in colder climates, with the help of a pond de-icer. These super handy devices easily install in any pond to make sure the ice won’t be on your list of concerns.

Why You Need A Pond De-Icer

Pond de-icers are a necessity in colder climates. When your pond water freezes over, it prevents oxygen from properly mixing into the water. Since fish rely on dissolved oxygen in the water to breathe, they will not survive if left iced over for too long. Not only that, but harmful gasses like ammonia from fish waste can build up if trapped under the ice. Preventing the ice from completely covering your pond is essential for your fish’s survival.

How Pond De-Icers Work

De-icers work by heating a hole in the ice covering your pond. This allows the proper exchange of gasses to occur. Oxygen can get into the water, and harmful ammonia can escape keeping your fish healthy. When paired with a pond aeration system, your fish will have a fresh supply of oxygen in even the thickest freezes.

Choosing The Best Pond De-Icer For Your Pond

Now that you know what a de-icer is, it’s time to decide which one is best for your needs. As a rule of thumb, we recommend 1 watt of power for every 1-2 gallons of water in your pond. This is a rough estimate, but it helps ensure proper functionality while also not making the water too warm. Some aerators also come with a built-in heater for operating in the cold months. We encourage you to check if your aerator already has a de-icing feature before purchasing a dedicated one.
