Pond safety is a pretty tough topic to be able to come to any one solution as to what would be definite guidelines for safety. The difficulty in defining this matter comes from the fact that there are so many types of ponds, waterfalls, koi ponds, fountains, water features, and streams.

Water fish ponds, air pumps & oxygen

The following comments are really aimed at koi fish keepers rather than the casual garden water ponds enthusiast.  Nevertheless the points made are just as valid for small water ponds as well as
large water ponds. Based upon my experience few small water ponds actually use air pumps, neither do these water ponds need them.  The reason is that the demands for oxygen by both the fish and biofilter bacteria are less urgent.
