Combination: Pond Heater and Winter Blend - FREE SHIPPING

Combination: Pond Heater and Winter Blend - FREE SHIPPING
Combination of BOTH Winter Blend and a Pond Heater. Once you start using your pond heater do not forget about the ecological water quality during these cold months by adding a biological cold water bacteria Winter Blend.

Winter Blend.  Winter can be harsh on the life in your water garden pool, especially with those extremely cold “polar vortices” or just darn cold temperatures that keep coming! Tricker’s offers a wonderful product that has a blend of good bacteria, called “Winter Blend”, that protects your water garden pool during the harsh winter months! This will protect your fish from poor water quality all winter. In preparation or during winter this bacteria is added when the temperatures are below 55 degrees and works in temperatures below the ice and snow levels. The biggest cause of fish death is ammonia. During the winter the Winter Blend will remove your ionized and toxic ammonia and reduces sludge buildup during this time. These bacteria are not the “nitrifying bacteria” found in the Spring and Summer Ultra Clear formulations. The cold water bacteria in Winter Blend absorb ammonia from the water during the entire winter months. When Spring comes, then the use of our Ultra Clear line should be routinely used.   Get your pond ready for Spring! 

Dosage:  Use 1 oz per 1000 gallons weekly when temperatures drop below 55 degrees.  Double dosage if pond has a lot of debris.

Pond Deicers or Pool Heaters. In areas where the threat of ice in winter is obvious, the necessity of a pool heater or deicer is recommended. The aquatic life in your pond, especially the fish, cannot survive heavy ice buildup and noxious gases may be trapped. The use of the pond heater will, by a thermostat that turns on when in need at lower temperatures, keep a hole in the ice to allow the noxious gases to escape. It is highly recommended to use at least a 315 Watt or above pool heater in latitudes of Chicago, Cleveland and New York. 

This combination of BOTH Winter Blend and a Pool Heater will be the best solution and peace of mind during the winter months when your pool still needs care.
