then came the UGLY GREEN [Mad] [Eek!] . we already had the filter that holds the pump but it just wasn't getting rid of the green. and after trying every product on the market and investing a lot of $$$$ [Frown] and nothing worked.--we had an idea [thinker] . i use batting for my quilts and crafts and i knew it worked in aquariums so it should work in ponds, i hoped. so we added it to our filter. some was added into the bio ball area then more added in the top aove filter pads then top back on and ready to go and this is the water by the next morning totally clear again [clappy] [Big Grin]

I used to have a fountain head like that.

They are fun to watch.

Ours clogged a little, but they come apart in just a few seconds.

It makes a tranquil sound.

Beautiful pond! Love what you did with the filter.

not sure if you can see them very good but in some of the pics. there is one big blow up snake that i actually float in my pond at first to keep te birds and cats out but now i went and bought a bag of those little samll plastic snakes and i have them under the water and along the edges and the birds ,cats, dogs and even racoons stay away now. and now the flaoting snake is just laid aside. the blow up snakes work great in your bushes and trees to keep birds away.

A fake snake in the bushes would keep ME away! EEK! [scaredy]

That is such a neat photo process for your pictures and what you did...
How often should someone change that stuff???

Don't forget to be kind to strangers. For some who have
done this have entertained angels without realizing it.

my hubby changed our filter about once every week when the water gets dirt or leaves in it. but if yur water is healthy andno trees around it could be changed about 1-2 times a month, or less. especially with cooler weather now. he only rinses the filter pads off and removes the fiber fill without disturbing the bio balls and adds new fiber fill. a $2 bag of fiber fill will last a while. we are so happy with our pond now.
