The aluminum shouldn't corrode or rust the same way steel would but you'll likely see some oxidation with time. I've had a piece of aluminum sheet metal for my waterfall weir and it has held up pretty nicely.It’s a piece of 4”x4” aluminum angle I had laying around. Not sure if it will corrode, I’ll probably have to clearcoat it.
Get a laundry basket, a bucket anything you can put below your water fall. Put it on a something to keep it below the water fall. Fill it with quilt batting (Walmart Kmart) it will turn brown fast, rinse repeat, it will filter out the fine stuff.This cloudiness is NOT going away.
I put a piece of deer fencing over the opening for my skimmer to keep the fish out.Pond is still cloudy, I put a bottle of barley clarifier in there, can’t see much of a difference after 2 days. I threw another pump with a box filter in there, hoping that helps. Was going to do the bucket and quilt batting thing but couldn’t figure out how to set it up without it tipping over.
Yesterday I threw in 10 “starter goldfish” from the pond store. Haven’t seen them since, until we went looking tonight and found 5 of the poor little guys in the skimmer. Still alive but probably not too happy. Not sure what to do about this, any ideas?
