Vossie, waterveranderings sal jou probleem net vererger. Is jou UV lig voldoende? Werk hy, hoe oud is die buis?

Nee Vossie,

Dit is by almal warm en almal kry reen maar ons damme is op die stadium ok, So ek vermoed dat daar iets anders fout is. Miskien n UV globe wat foutief is. Iets wat jy miskien ook na kan kyk is of jou dam se sirkulasie na wense is.

Ek ervaar tans dieselfde probleem, en het ook gedink dat die weer dinge vertroebel. Was lanklaas op Harties, maar ek dink daai water is minder groen. So 3 weke terug 'n nuwe UV buis ingesit (na 12 maande ) en van daar af het ek probleme. Dalk is die buis foutief. Ek het die 'connections' nagegaan en dit lyk reg, maar sal vanaand vasstel of die lig 'glow'.

dis alles klein los stukkies maar met my skimmer is alles omtrent nou uit ek het bietjie dop gehou lyk my dis die vis wat oral groen goed los woel en nou dryf die stukkies binne die pond rond so dis darem nie stringe goed wat rond dryf nie en die water het ook nie `n reuk nie

Well from the last 2 days rain my pond is also very cloudy...I have some run off from my roof into the pond so am thinking it may be this. Guess I know what I'm doing this weekend!!!!

Repaired my UV light. The bayonet-type holder for the starter had become brittle and subsequently broke so the light didn't start up. now hopefully the light will clear the algae again. Any suggestions on how long it will take? 30 Watt UV on 15000 litres. I'd like to see my fish before I go on leave.

Jack, I would say it depends for how long it has been green, my mate just put a 55w UV on a 40 000lt pond for the first time. Been green for about a year and he can see fish now 2 meters down after 2 weeks. Not gin clear or anywhere near that yet but a hell of a lot better. IF you're pond has only been green for a short while I would guess 1 - 2 weeks and you're pond should be clear

The algae problem can be solved with help of better filtration of water.
