Fleece blanket = clear water
Having a lot of rain here in western Pa. My little puddle was brownish/green and I couldn't see my fish unless they came right to the surface. Bought a cheap ($3.00) fleece blanket from the dollar store and cut it up and folded it into fat sections and packed it around the pump. Then ran tubing from the pump outlet into a wire mesh basket also stuffed with rolled up fleece, which I suspended above the pond so as the water dripped back into the pond. This morning when I checked I could see to the bottom of the pond as well as all my fish. I tried quilt batting first and it really did nothing to clear the water. I'm hoping by tomorrow, the water will be crystal clear. I am amazed at how well the fleece worked!
