I know for me, having a pond in an average sized suburban back yard leaves no room for a separate tub to treat water before adding to the pond. We've always just topped off the pond without worrying about treating the water - we never add more than a few hundred gallons at a time.i always recommend, a in line filter, and a separate tub so to treat the tub to remove what is needed. by treatments.before you add it to the pond
I wonder if he just turned off his alerts - maybe turning off notifications changes the way your user name is handled on the forum?I wonder if he quit the forum or what?
all you need is a inflatable kids swimming pool [ cheap]. i would recommend one with a inflatable top ring it will also double as a place put your fish in when you clean out the pond.you can float it in the pond with fish. while its being cleaned or drained.i have seen the Japanese use the very same thing while catching fish from the mud ponds.those with small ponds can use a trash can[clean]. or with a plastic liner non scented . non treated water will cause fish stress. it can even kill. you get a neighborhood water line issue say up the street a ways they will hit the water with a heavy dose of chlorine. not to mention water hardness, PH. ammonia, and a host of other things they add to water. each city is different i dont like living life on the edge. mike@ad

I do agree though about forgetting the hose - we've heard that story a LOT on the forum. I always ALWAYS set a timer when adding water to the pond for this very reason! Just when you think "I won't forget" - you'll forget!
True - but that's an overall picture. I think you initially raised the concern of day to day dosing changes, which can happen as a result of a number of situations. For example, whenever our hydrants get flushed, they follow up with a bigger dose of chlorine. That's something you wouldn't know from a general report.thats cool but all people have to do is send a letter to them and the must send information to you on just whats is used to treat the water..
