Do people have their pond covers on yet?

Seems we are going into a very cold spell, with temperatures set to not get much above 10 to 12c tomorrow. But its still a very long time to May when they usually come off.

Hi Tony my pond covers are on been on for two weeks. Keep opening it up but cover again at night.
As you said it’s a long winter cannot wait for April when I take them off again.

I fully covered mine a couple of weeks ago but have removed half .The koi still seem lively and its a long winter much warmer than this time last year.

Reviewing my decision daily.

Very good Andy, good to see you have finished your pond.

Have you had any condensation problems?

Any pics of inside?

cheers guys,not finished yet tony,got some gaps under cladding to cover next week and the viewing room/filter house all needs finishing off but thats next year lol,do get condensation on windows but it soon drys out,none on roof as not heated and it isnt draught proof so that probably helps,i just wanted it all under cover,nice when pouring down to be able to go inside lol andi
