Polyester Batting as Filter Material
After walking around in my 2000 gal pond yesterday rearranging plants, removing string algae etc I stirred up enough gunk to leave the water rather murky. Pond has neither filtration or aeration. Fish load is minimal (6 goldfish) and has several pond plants and parrot feather and WH finally reproducing to cover maybe a third of water surface.
Been thinking of acquiring a 100 gallon stock tank and use 10-20 pounds polyester batting as filter material. Is there anything better? Can the batting be cleaned for reuse? Water will be delivered to the tank using a 20 gal/minute sump pump. This filtration will be as needed as no electricity at site so will depend on extension cords at least for now.
