Without the knowhow and equipment, solving green water simply isn't a case of pouring in some "magic potion" sold to you buy a local aquatic retailer, there is more to it than that...
Green water is made up of microscopic free floating algae caused by the sun and water conditions which is a natural even which happens in most ponds across the world. In fact, the algae particles are so small they will simply pass through any filter without a suitable UV system installed.
A UV (Ultra Violet Filter) simply clumps up the algae into a larger form which are then caught in your filter system leaving you with clear water. However when most ponds get to this point (unless recently cleaned) your filter won't be able to cope with the extra algae and the usual pond detritus which would cause it to block daily.
The quickest and easiest way to combat this issue is a full drain clean and tidy to remove everything unwanted, followed by suitable filtration equipment with sufficient standard maintenance.
With all the above in place, your water will stay crystal clear all year round guaranteed.
Even though clear water is more pleasing to the eye, you will be able to see what is lurking on the bottom of your pond making maintenance a breeze simply using a net to remove leaves, twigs etc in seconds.
