Dirty fish pond dating


My pond is clean but it had a lot of "fines" that the filter just would not pick up. I have a Challenger on a 15,000 gallon pond. I have tried many commercial pond vacuums and none of them worked to my satisfaction. After much thought, and other failed attempts, Rich and I came up with an idea that works very well.
We used a larger pump and hooked it to a piece of tubing. You might be able to use a garden hose (possibly you would have to buy a fitting. This would depend on the size pump you use). I tried quilt batting at first and but it did not wash clean. Daughter Jen found some polyester knit material on the clearance table for $ a yard at Wal-Mart. We lined a heavy duty laundry basket with the material. We had to use clamps to hold it to the basket because we used a 4500 GPH trash pump, a very powerful pump.

We set the laundry basket on the water fall so that the clean water would return to the pond. Turned on the pump and oh wow! We had to wash the material about every 15 minutes and repeated until all the fines were out of the water. Rich did get in the pond and "swim" a couple of times to keep the stuff moving toward the pump. Not a problem for him because he swims with the fish nearly ever day.
They say a picture is worth a 1,000 words, so here are some  pictures worth a million  words.

I thought my pond was clean because I could see the bottom drain.  We could also see the pump we used in the bottom of the pond! it LOOKS clean - right?
Wrong! Look again.
