String Algae! by Lisa
What is the best way to get rid of string algae? At least, I think that is what I have. It looks like plants growing from the bottom of the pond up. It looks just like seaweed. I hate adding stuff to the water. The last time I did that, my lilies got stunned and they didn't do as well. They...

Galvanized Pond For Temporary Safekeeping by JB
Hello! A few weeks back I asked for suggestions on what to do with my koi and goldfish. You see I'm moving and do not have a pond at my new home. I'm not sure where to build the new pond and wanted to live there for a while to let me see where the place tells me a pond is needed. Over the weekend...

Good news/bad news by Mike Patterson
Wow, haven't seen the liner since February... (new pond). Just in the last couple of days the water has cleared up so much that I can see the bottom (pond is 22 to 32 inches deep). But it seems that a predator (I'm guessing a Heron) has also found the clear water helpful. It's hard to tell for...

Brown floating scum by David
I bought a house with a pond. The is pond oval (10x14x3) ~3000 Gallons...the pond has never been clear. It has been green. I attributed this to the light on UV clarifier being burned out. Now that spring has come I am often getting brown sludge floating on top of the water. I can scoop it out...

Mechanical Filter Media by City Slicker
Hello all, I had planned on using a roll of waded up window screen as filter media for my mechanical filter but when I went to purchase it, I realized that it is vinyl coated fiberglass material. Google search turns up conflicting results on the safety of using fiberglass window screening. I...

Electric timer? by GoldLexus
We have pond with a waterfall. The water fall is at a 14 ft. incline with a submersible pump. We run the waterfall only during the spring and summer and shut it off in the fall/winter. We haven't turned it on yet this season due to some leaking issues. Anyway when the fall is running our electric...

Duck problem by Fred
Recently I lost two fish from my above ground pond. About the same time, several ducks were seen around neighborhood swimming pools. Can't say for sure that the ducks had breakfast on my fish, but what would be the best way to keep them away from my pond? Thanks for your help.

clarify by Pond Diver
I should have clarified my original post. The wife thinks the algae bloom came from the kitty litter cloud. While I'm inclined to agree. I think its also due to the hanging basket at the edge of my POND! (can you tell I hate it?) btw...she said no to the "Pond Cam" idea for my website :-( ...
