During mid summer I added an extra filter pad to my spillbox on the top of my waterfall which only lead to the grief of allowing a trickle of water to seap out over the back of the spillbox. Over a unknown period of time you could guess the rest but my question is having found the best combination of a single filter pad again but with some fibre meshing underneath and heaviesh small slates at the back, is it wise to clean the filter pad and replace the meshing now it is cooling down in autumn. My pond is very clear at present, though the string algae that seemed contained in a small area around a submerged planter container seems to have emerged elsewhere, some fairy stuff around many of the rocks and even on the fall. Should I risk cleaning the pad or just replace the mesh? Thanks 'v'
