RE: UV filter or clarifiers


My pond develops string algea along with poor water clarity. Will a UVliter filter help this condition. THe pond size is 12 x 14 x 4 ft deep. Is there another product that will help this condition?


A UV Filter will help fix water clarity problems, but cannot help with string algae.
String algae is best controlled with the following steps:
a) test and adjust pH to within 7.0 – 8.0 (string algae love high pH)
b) clean existing growth
c) preventing new growth
