After adding your alum/lime the water should clear up. When it clears up the sunlight will hit the ponds bottom in some areas of the pond. And when that happens the veggies will show up on their own.


Do not judge me by the politicians in my City, State or Federal Government.

I have another question. It might be a dumb idea (not my 1st or last). After the clay has settled at the bottom can it be pumped out? Just thinking if someone can get out most of the unpacked clay out. Maybe the effects will last longer. Not sure how I would go about it but also know if there's a will theres a way.


The people who say I can't do it can just sit the @^#% down and watch me. Friends call me Rusto I also subscribe to pond boss mag. http://forums.pondboss.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=504716#Post504716

RS - My theory is you want to leave the alum-treated clay particles on the bottom as a coating over un-treated clay. Playing around with 5 gallon bucketfuls of pond water showed me the clay settling to the bottom is quite significant - perhaps it would amount to several inches in 5+ feet of pond water column. You can re-stir the bucket and it will turn cloudy, but re-settle again quickly when left alone. Having a layer of the treated clay may help cut down on the amount of un-treated clay stirred up by critters. Just a thought.

That makes since. Just kicking around ideas in my head (out loud). Thanks for the reply.
