Let's go back to what was part of your original question.......What will be the expected maximum thickness of winter ice? I am sure that there are local governmental sources that can answer that a lot more accurately than most of the members of this forum. Two foot thick ice seems considerable to me, but being in Florida, what do I know about it, ice is something WE put in tea.

You may be able to get by with only a small portion of the pond being 3 feet deep. In that scenario, the effects of hydrostatic pressure should be minimal.

Whatever the thickness of the winter ice, keep in mind that a hole must be maintained in the ice for the duration of the winter to allow gas transfer both into and out of the pond's water column.
