Last night my pump to my koi pond died. I have an above ground koi pond in a box flower garden that my husband built me. My pump stopped last night. I ordered a new pump but it will not be in until Saturday. I put an air stone in the pond. Will they be okay? In the spring a lot of pretty flowers are blooming around it. Right now since it is winter everything is dead.

What’s the temp of the water right now? If it’s cold enough you won’t have to worry as much about aeration

We live in NC. It has been warm but now it is colder. The water feels really cold. They haven't gone dormant though. I just got them over the summer so I am still learning about them.

Not sure but I don’t think that’s a continuous operation pump.
I use these pimps and I’ve been very happy with them. I’ve had one run in my pond every day with little maitenance for 4 years now. Twice per year I clean the impeller. A few more times per year I clean the leaves and gunk from the pre filter. Mine pump 4300 gallons per hour.
