Changing the water:

  • Avoid changing the water in your container pond as this means you will be refilling with fresh water where the water already in your container pond has gone through a maturing process.
  • To avoid changing the water you will need to check your container pond in Autumn and cut back dying foliage and remove falling tree leaves.
  • If the water turns green or grows algae or blanketweed then add Extract of Barleystraw or Barley Bio Algae Control on a weekly basis and increase the dose rather than empty the container out to start again.
