heeeeelp low voltage uv's #1
hello can anyone help me ? I have just set up a new pond which has been running for about 2 weeks .i have just added 5 small 2" -3" inch koi .the problame is that the pond is starting to go green,i have a bio filter but no uv which i think would sort out my green water prob,but my biggest problame is power i need to get hold of a low volt uv ( 24v or 12v) as i am unable run a long distance of 240 v. Does anyone know of a low voltage uv supplier or have any other ideas which could help me clean my green water i would be very greatful

Hi Danny
If your pond has been running for such a short time the most likely problem for green water is New Pond Syndrome where the water is maturing. Because of the cold weather we are having (time of year) it is unlikely that it is due to not having a UVC connected, most ponds are actually running without at this time of year. My advice is to bear with things and the water should clear in a matter of days,patience is a virtue.
