Pond Aerator or Pond De-Icer- Which one is best? Long Valley- Morris County NJ
Here is what we do and suggest: Use an aerator as your main source for de-icing during the winter, to keep that hole in the ice. Also add a "true" pond de-icer as a back-up floating in the pond but not plugged in. Only plug the de-icer in unless it gets really cold and your hole in the ice is closing up. It's also great to have a back-up de-icing device in the pond in case another decides its too tired and stops working.
