With colder weather hitting us, as is often the case at this time of year, it’s important to think of the health and welfare of your fish. If freezing weather persists you need to make sure your pond doesn’t completely freeze over.
A pond that’s completely frozen over can cause problems because it means that harmful and toxic gases that build up in a pond from decaying waste material can’t escape and fresh healthy oxygen can’t get in.
A Pond Heater or Ice Preventer is the perfect solution for this, and at Bradshaws we have a whole range of these to suit all requirements and budgets.
