    Yep I have an aquarium heater in the 5 gallon drink cooler, the lowest it goes is 65°F. The water is continually pumped with a tiny reptile waterfall pump down through the 16" pipe that has the 2 horizontal nipples in it then back to the cooler. Must be some water froze around the pin on the outside of the nipple. These are the ones I got from Meyers Hatchery. No instructions, maybe I put them in upside down? I have the wide flattish part on the bottom.

    We are looking at 9.5" of snow by 7 AM Wednesday and total of about a foot by evening. Guess I'll be getting up early Wed morning.

    If I were to do that we have a problem! Neither DW nor DD2 could get to work.

    The pond went into winter full. Once whatever snow we have in the spring is gone, it is all up to the clouds to add water as the sun removes it.

    Yep, you should have it right the way you've got it-cup/flat side down.
