    Darrell, just a quick note to say thanks for all the information you have provided me. I contacted you about the fish kill and algae I had, purchased a aeration system from you and my pond looks lots better. I restocked the pond this fall and hope to see lots of fish this spring. Hope you and your family have a MERRY CHRISTMAS.

    Hi Terry, I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas as well. I am so glad the pond is looking and doing better. Since you have added fish and winter is coming please decide on running the aerator or not running it during the winter months. Either way is fine but if you choose to run all winter move the diffuser to half the depth of the pond. Meaning if the pond is 10′ deep, move the diffuser to 5′ deep or less. It is possible that leaving at the deepest part of the pond we could super cool the pond and harm the fish.
