How clear is my pond?

Clear water in the pond today

Clear water in the pond today: the edge of the net is resting on the bottom of the pond

I’m pleased to say that the pond is now crystal clear again.

It’s probably due to a combination of very low nutrient levels (conductivity is around 80), and a host of water fleas filtering any algae that remain.

There are a lot of water fleas in the pond: I just dipped the tray in the water to catch these

Also taddie numbers are down now so they’re probably not having such a big effect on the pond.
