(Non-op) pond pump needs over the winter?

Question by Jay P.: (Non-op) pond pump needs over the winter?
Hi all! Quick question. I just emptied my small garden pond for the winter. If I plan to leave it empty and non-operational for the winter, is there anything I need/should do to protect the pump? It has a buried electrical line, and so, I cannot bring it indoors for the season. Thanks!

If there is no water in it (that might freeze) it will be fine till spring as long as its not turned on dry.

    wrap it in sacking & tie with string, but why empty the pond, ponds are teaming with wildlife through the winter months, larve etc. best to keep full if possible.
