Been getting the pond ready for the warmer weather when the algea will be starting to turn the water into pea soup. In other words the uv has to be plumbed in and this year i'm endeavouring to use just one pump, up into a larger biological filter via the uv.
Previously i had one pump on the uv and a small eco filter, and another one feeding the larger filter, but one of the outlets on one pump has snapped but i can get round it by utilising the fountain exit if the one pump isn't up to the job.
As i said on the pond page of my other blog, the frogs were stirring at the bottom of the pond last week, but i hope they keep down there for a while longer, the randy devils!
The fish are actually quite lively as well,seeing that the water temperature is still only 5 degrees.
