LOL that's a little disturbing....do you....do you enjoy tearing them apart......Green away is just going to make dead algae that will still need to be filtered out. I seriously would start filtering the water manually with cotton batting. Find some way (even if it has to be a temporary line from the filer to the pond) to run the pond water through a small basket or something that can hold the cotton fill batting in place while the hose from the filter runs the pond water through it. I know it sounds crazy but it works VERY well! In 24 hours you will see a dramatic difference and in just days you'll see the bottom
After the pond is clear, use the fountain to put batting in, less likely to be seen, to keep the pond clear of single cell algae. Unfortunately because your pond is in the sun most the day, this will be a never ending battle. The good thing is, Batting is a very cheap, and I have even been known to buy stuffed animals at the thrift store and use the stuffing out if these, that way I can just throw away what gets nasty and its even cheaper
Lillies and floating plants will help shade a bit but the fish like to eat them so there is that problem lol
oh and welcome!
Sounds good, make sure its one made for ponds because the others are made for indoor use and may not be able to handle water on them. Im sure it will make a huge difference as will filtering with quilt batting.Hi,
Right, i have just checked the water coming out of the filter and its basically just the same as the pond water i think. There does not seem to be any clear difference, so in other words I am not sure the filter is the problem.
THIS MAY BE A STUPID QUESTION, showing me up for my lack of pond knowledge, but is the water coming out of the pump/filter system supposed to be crystal clear?
Or does it clean in small bits at a time?
Thanks! Just about to go and get an aerator for the pond talal101 and sissy
