I take care of a pool & spa in northern Cal. Im totaly new to ponds, sorry for the dumb questions.
The pond/waterfall has a 2hp pump and a sand filter, the homeowner has no idea if it was home to fish in the past. Im thinking no, the inlet for filter is just a pvc pipe with a check valve head.
Of course the fish would get sucked in, do you think i could just have some kind of screen?
If we decide to Not have fish, how can i clear alegae off of rocks with out adding chlorine? pool alegacide? or do i have to drain and clean each rock off? I know that with out chlorine it'll never be clear + wouldnt it kill the bamboo plants aswell?
With out chemicals, how do i keep mosquitos in check?
If there is no fish should i still check TA and PH to preserve pump or does it even matter?
