Reasons to heat your koi pond?

So here we have the benefits of heating your koi pond ,firstly we can feed koi all year round, gettimg contant nourishment to condition the koi. They also are now growing for the full 12 months and not just through the warmer months.

The loss of Koi has been drastically reduced because the pond keeper has been able to maintain a temperature acceptable to them, with the cost of our Koi ever increasing it would only take the loss of just one high quality Koi to far outweigh the running cost of heating a pond. The facts are that it will probably be considerably less to heat your pond, rather than to suffer losses of good quality Koi throughout the winter months due to the severe cold temperatures of the water.

Finally because we are able to continue feeding during the colder months, we still have mature biological filtration, we don't have to go through the process of 'Starting Up' our systems at the beginning of each season.
