    My pond is below my deck and I need to find a cleaner that I can use where the run off will not hurt my Koi. I read that white vinegar with water 50/50 is a good cleaner. I don't expect much to go into the pond but some may go into should I be concerned ??

    vinegar can be used to kill plants and it is acidic so I think it could mess up your ph and kill of plants. Can you put plastic over your pond while you clean your deck?
