The sludge by the time it goes through the bog is pretty much soil now. It's like a compost pile when you first start its a toxic stinky mess . But worms and other critters look at it as dinner..
One out of the bog it's prettymuch the most fertile soil money can buy .
Skim it off and put it in the gardens

Well, I think we figured out the problem. The hose that runs from the shut off down to the PVC plumbing with the holes in it to run the water through and back up through the pebbles has a hole in it. The only water movement is around the hose, nowhere else. It's just stagnate water in the bog. Well, except around the hose. The pond water is just going to the hose, skimming the top of the bog than back in the pond. UGH!! We'll work on it this fall before I shut it down. No wonder all that brown and algae in there.
