FILTER / UV ADVICE #1
Good morning everyone, I'm running a Hozelock Easyclear 2500 in my pond and two weeks ago changed the UV lamp, since then its only worked for approx. one week so i'm looking to maybe keep that running as a filter but either add uv clarifier or something like a Hozelock Cyprio Triple Filter. Being a newbie i'm not sure which would suit my small pond better, to be honest i'm getting fed up with my pond already, its only been up and running just over a year and i've had nothing but trouble. I realise that being in full sun i was always going to have problems but the only thing that seems to love my pond is the Heron (yes its already cleared my pond once) and the plants. I only want to watch my fish in crystal clear water like most of us
Any advice would be very much appreciated

Re: GREEN WATER #2
we are using both. We bought the "pump" and then realised that it wasn't a filter aswell so when we bought the "filter" we decided not to use the "pump" would be a waste of money hence we are using both (like I said we are beginners to this and obviously a bit stupid). I will get measurements this weekend and post. In saying that it does look a bit clearer, as I said maybe i'm just being impatient.
Thanks for your replies anyway

Re: GREEN WATER #3
Hiya 2010 i will have to get that other information for you and post but the pump is a Bermuda 1500 Pond Pump and the filter is a Hozelock Easyclear 2000 but both pump and filter are running 24/7. Yes we did buy some fish 5 comets and 5 shubunkins (sp!) and they are doing really well. As for the slate we didn't both going down that route in the end but at some point i am looking at putting some rocks/slate in just to add some structure to it.

Re: GREEN WATER #4
Hiya Steve, its only a small preformed pond and i've had a pump and a separate filter (with uv light) running for about two weeks, I also have several marginal plants (in pots) around the edge. Maybe i'm just being impatient

GREEN WATER #5
A good morning to you all..hopefully one of your kind knowledable people can help me here. As i've said before i've just built a pond for the first time and having let the pond fill with rainwater over several months i found i had to use Algorem to clear the "rubbish" out of it but the water is still green. I've just tried using Bermuda Banish Green Water treatment about 5 days ago but still cannot see any difference. Do you think i need to do a water change or something. Your help is very much appreciated as always.
Thanks in advance
