I live near Memphis TN so don't have that pesky "frozen water" problem. However, I do aerate my 2,500 gal goldfish pond with a Oase Biosys Skimmer (free standing/ floating skimmer) which is powered by a Laguna fountain pump. I attached a small pipe on the discharge end of the pump & set the pump so that this pipe is a few inches below the water's surface. The discharge provides a small fountain effect that keeps the surface moving while aerating the water. The skimmer keeps the leaves / debris off the top of the water the pump keeps the water moving...and moving water will not freeze. Hope this helps

Can you help me my garden pond keeps going murky i have 2 ultra violet lights in it i keep changing my water but does not get any bettter

26 fish is a lot unless it is a big pond. Cold water fish create a lot of detritus. Do you have a fountain to aerate the water? Margin plants will also help. You could also add a pump and filter. I found this unit for you.

I have a 196-036 timer. Stored it inside during the winter. Hooked it up yesterday, everything works, (info panel), but it will not allow water to disribute. Tried manual and auto programing. Any ideas?

Most issues of this sort with these timers is water pressure holding the valve shut. Reduce the flow from the spigot and try again. If the timer still does not operate properly I would suggest removing the timer from your water system and manually activate the valve. Listen for the solenoid to click open, this can be fairly faint so it may take a few tries to definitely tell if it is operating. If the solenoid will not operate it would be best to replace the unit.

De-icer must have a short

The best solution to ice in garden ponds is to keep the water moving as moving water will not freeze. Depending upon the size of your garden pond you may try adding a fountain. All major pump brands carry small fountain pumps that include various fountain spray nozzles/heads or you can buy the pump and then purchase a Fountain Head Kit separately. The fountain will provide 1 - movement of water at the surface, 2- aeration for the pond, 3- pleasing sounds year round, not to mention the 4- aesthetic value. The added bonus is that you will not have to worry too much about shorts if you use a submersible pump. So try dumping the deicer and go for a fountain.
