Bubble Wrap

Never thought about the value of bubble wrap until there was a danger of severe cold killing off the hibernating fish in the small pond.  Even with temps going well below zero, the insulation provided by bubble wrap in combination with the heated floating disc and the bubbler, ensures running water throughout the winter season. Bubble wrap also allows the warmth of the sun to penetrate and be circulated and absorbed and radiate heat in the space between the water’s surface and the covering. Usually, three layers works like a charm…………..and it’s cheap as well.

Now there is hosing available to feed warm water into the pond from the house to add fresh tepid  water at least once a week.  Unwrapped the pond and netted out floating debris, checked the bubbler and checked on the fish floating around at the bottom in a colorful school, looking quiet but healthy.
