When should I turn off the pond pump?

The decision to turn off a pond pump depends on several factors such as climate, type of pond and the presence of fish. In areas with mild winters, the pump can often remain active year-round, especially if the pond is deep enough (at least 1 meter) to prevent complete freezing. This provides constant water circulation and oxygen supply, which is important for fish health and overall pond ecology.

In regions with harsh winters, it may be necessary to turn off the pump to prevent freezing damage. When turning off the pump, provide an alternative oxygen source to keep fish and plants healthy. When turning off the pump in the winter, it is important to clean and store it in a frost-free place.

At A2KOI, we are happy to advise you on the best policies for your pond pump during different seasons, based on your specific pond conditions and climate.
