I have a pond de-icer in my pond and I have been noticing it is kicking of the electrical breaker lately. Guessing it must be going bad, hindsight....
I looked at the pond this weekend and kicked a bigger hole open in the ice and pulled the de-icer out, it was working but not real well. I figured me pulling it out and messing with it would take care of it.
Well this morning we noticed the breaker was kicked off again and aren't sure how long is has been that way. Reset it and headed to work hoping it would melt a hole again. Max # days the pond may have been frozen over is Sat thru Tonight (Thu) when I get home. I ran out and bought a new de-icer on the way to work but can't swap them out til tonight. The temp here in Illinois is 10-20 degrees (F).
So the questions is.... are my fish still alive or did I possible kill them????
