What can I do about milky pond water?


Answer by  VintageGlory (93)

What kind of clay are ya using in your pond? I was told that fine particle clays like montmorillonite can cause that kind of milky water. Find out what kind you've been using and maybe try not using anymore for a little while and see if your water clears.

some of the treatments like blankenweed crystalline can make the phosphates and nitrates bind which is another cause outside of your clay idea  add a comment

Your water filtration should be getting rid of the milky water in the your pond. Try using a sand pressure filter. It will catch ultra fine particles and may be very effective in solving your problem. Without having more information on your problem I can only take a best guess.

Experts recommend water quality testing to determine if ammonia and other pollutants have accumulated. You can purchase a water quality testing kit or call a company that specializes in this type of testing. This is the most common cause of milky pond water so it is best to start here.
