Winter Pond Maintenance
Yukon, Oklahoma City Area
Based in Yukon Oklahoma, Continental Ponds offers winter pond maintenance in the Oklahoma city Metro area. You may want to shut your pond down for winter.
We offer winter pond maintenance, and pond cleaning service so your pond can enter ready for winter.
Simply removing your pond’s excess debris and adding Aquascape Activated Pond Carbon should set you up for the winter. Living in Oklahoma, you will begin to see ice formation. This is what most of us in in the area will see, and we’ll spend the next few months longingly viewing our ponds from indoors.
Floating Heaters/Pond De-icer
If your geographic area experiences long periods of exceptionally cold weather like here in Oklahoma, the pump won’t be enough to keep a hole open in the ice, and you’ll want to consider adding a floating Aquascape Pond De-icer. Controlled by a thermostat, the unit only runs when the water temperature is at or below freezing, heating only the surrounding water to just above freezing, and then shutting off again.
The best thing you can do if you live in extremely cold climates is to incorporate a combination of the pump and floating deicer. Be sure to position them so the two units are not near each other, otherwise the Aquascape Pond De-icer will run continuously in order to heat the that water that’s constantly being circulated by the pump.
