The depth doesn't matter much when it comes to temperature, more so when it comes to freezing. If it's a deep pond, that just means there's a body of water large enough that the outside temp can't consistently cool the water to freezing temperatures. As soon as the water reaches 4 degrees celsius, that water will "sink" to the bottom because 4 deg. Water has the highest density. So, the bottom will always be 4C if the water is cooled down that far.

And I'm guessing the cost to heat a pond out side would be the cost of a house lol it goes to show how different people's set ups have to be it crazy

You guessed it. With a closed lid and great isolation, you can get away with a lot, but you're still looking at a pretty hefty sum for a pond large enough for rtc and tsn.
