     Your Weekend Pond Q&A...


Hi Friend,

Here is this weekend's Pond Q&A, with several different pond questions to ponder...

Question>

Help,

We have a blue heron visiting our yard. Wow, what an awesome bird. Problem is he's having a great time eating at our pond. A landscaper said his mom put out a fake heron in the pond and the problem was over. Very territorial. I thought of you guys first but don't see anything on your site. Any suggestions?

Greg,

===

Answer>

Hi Greg,

We've covered this several times over the past few weeks, so you may want to review previous Q&A posts here: www.macarthurwatergardens.com/BLOG or on our archives page here: www.pond-tips.info

Yes, you can add a Heron decoy, which is usually very effective.. But we did have one customer report back that after one week, he came out to find the Heron trying to mate with is decoy!

So, from what we've heard and tested - the Scarecrow is the best solution. You can find out more about the Scarewcrow by clicking here: http://www.macarthurwatergardens.com/scarecrow

Hope this helps..

Question>

Dear Bret

In regards to the Scarecrow, how can they be used during the winter? I know if the hose has been left out accidently with the water left on it will freeze. Is a special hose available or does the scarecrow just have to be put away for the winter? Besides a net is there anything that can be used as a deterrent to the predators?

John

Answer>

The scarecrow is probably not effective during winter, as the water may freeze inside the hose and unit, as you mentioned. Other than that, a net is probably your best bet during winter. Just cover the pond completely, and wait for Spring...

Question>

I live were it gets very cold during the winter time and I was wondering what to do with my waterfall box and skimmer box during the winter months.Do I have to take out the pump in my skimmer box,and the filters in both boxes.And should I drain the water out of them.

Thanks Mike

===

Answer>

Mike,

As we've covered in recent Q&A replies, we do recommend removing pumps and draining filters during winter. Yes, it's probably best to remove your pump from your skimmer, and sane it on your garage or in the house. The pumps will survive fine outside, but it's just best to bring them in if possible..

===

Question>

I'm wondering if you can help me locate a possible hole in my preformed pond. I have a plastic preformed pond and I fill it to the top and in a couple days it's about 4 inches lower, can you tell me how to locate a leak? It's only my 2nd year and it's been a struggle to say the least....now I'm just preparing to take the pump out and purchase a water circulator in preparation for winter...and this! I'm in Syracuse, NY and the snow has all ready started to fly. Thanks for your help and the wonderful newsletters!

Answer>

Hi Kathy,

Sure, just fill it up and shut off your pump and observe. If the water level still drops, then wait until it stops dropping and check that water level for leaks. But 9 times out of 10, it's a leak in the line from the pump to the waterfall. So if your waterfall does not drop when the pump is off -- then this is your problem and you need to check your lines...

Question>

Hello,

Am going to buy a UV STERILIZERS but do I need anything else to go with it.. such as a TetraPond Filter or Skimmer???? My pond is really really green and am hoping a UV Sterilizer will help.. Am not sure on which kind of UV to buy..

My pond is about 6'x10' and 4'deep gradually gets shallower.. I have a filter with bio-balls and I clean it but this year I have a new algae growing or something.. So please help.. Thank you for your time, Jody

===

Answer>

Hi Jody,

UV sterilizers are great for clearing green water, but you really do need an adequate filter also, for removing the dead algae afterwards..

Do you know how many gallons your pond is? Here's how to calculate it:

Pond Gallons = L x W x Avg Depth x 7.5 gallons per cubic foot... So, if your pond is 6' x 10' x 4' deep, sloping shallower - then let's call it 3' deep on average, so we get 6 x 10 x 3 x 7.5 = 1350 gallons.

So, you might want to consider an all inclusive filter / UV combo like the Bioforce UVC filters. These can be buried up to the lid, and have a built in UV sterilzer. click here for more info: http://www.macarthurwatergardens.com/Hozelock_Cyprio/Hozelock_BioForceUVC_Pond_Filter.shtml

Hope this helps,

Brett Fogle
