Water Fountains in Winter?
Do I need a Fountain in the Winter?
Water fountains are an asset to any water feature, lake or pond at any time of the year. Apart from the wonderful displays of cascading water and sprays being thrown high into the air and the night time appeal of a professionally lit fountain, they are also beneficial to their immediate environment.
During the colder months they help support the lake, pond or water feature by keeping movement on the water surface. In turn this stops freezing and allows oxygen to be dissolved into the water body. Many water features will freeze during the coldest parts of winter, this can lead to a reduction of oxygen in the water and cause fish deaths and even cause the ecology to completely breakdown.
