Air pump in Winter

In a Koi pond should I turn the air pump off in winter? - Dave

You should never turn off the air pump, it provides the Koi with oxygen. Make sure that the air stone is near the surface of the water, about six inches to one foot deep. You don't want it too deep into the water, otherwise it will mix the warm water on the bottom with the cold water on top and it lower the water temperature in the pond overall.
