I didn't have very many plants this first year for my little pond, so I'll keep the winterizing suggestions in mind for the future reference. Thank you so much for the information.

Question--is it ok to use the heater in a vinyl-lined pond? I'm guessing I'd have to make sure it stayed away from the sides so it doesn't melt the vinyl?
Plants are not an issue with me, either--the goldfish and the turtles ate 'em all, lol.

Glad it was helpful! Thanks for reading.

Kywoods- if you use a trough heater (which has an exposed element most times) I think you can buy a guard for it or rig some other kind of protection so your liner doesn't get damaged.

Ok, thanks, I'm sure I can find what I need at the local feed store.

FYI, we just bought a farm stock tank de-icer at the pet store that has a a couple of rings around it to keep it off the plastic. Said it is safe to use in plastic lined pools. Thought it was kind of expensive at $70, though. Probably could have got it cheaper at the feed store.
