    Pond covers and heating winter is coming

    So guys it went down to 5c last night where I live in dartford. Checked pond temp and it was at 14. Few more nights like that and Iím sure it will drop the pond temp! At what temp should the pond water be before I take action putting on the poly sheet and start up the heater? I just have a large aquarium heater thatís suitable for 1000l(apparently) either way Iím going to set it up on a timer to go on/off every half hour! Just to take the edge off the coldness. Iv also made a wooden box insulted it for my filter and got some pipe lagging for the pump pipe leading to the filter. Any thoughts be greatly appreciated .... cheers guys

    my main pond isnt heated so for me its more slowing the temp in the pond from dropping too fast, i went against insulating the inside so the blocks store a bit of heat when the sun hits them, as im south facing thats all day if the sun is out
