November is the time to check your Pond De-icer

November is the perfect time to check that your pond heater is in good working order. Get that heater out of storage and give it a good once over. Make sure that the heating elements are not corroded and that the cord is not showing nicks or breaks. Getting the pond heater situated now will allow you to simply plug it in when the weather turns icy cold. Even a few days having the pond frozen over can be deadly to your fish. With all of the pond heaters available on the market today it can become a challenge on deciding which one to pick. Your decision should be based on the wattage and the cord length of the heater. A general rule of thumb is to have 250 watts per 100 gallons of water.
