    Blanket weed treatment

    Not sure weather I am being a div or not but should I be turning off my Uv when treating for blanket weed. I know some koi treatments you have to but it doesnít say anything about it on the tube il attach a pic of what Iím using. Ps used this type last year and was really good! IMG_9977.JPG

    not sure mate, sorry not used a blanket weed treatment before, ask Mankey Sankey he might be able to help if you offer up the ingredients from the treatment..

    All the ones I have used resolve and cba
    Have not hurt my filters mate.
    But the cba one made my fish go nuts 2 years ago.
    So I will not use that anymore. Only aqua resolve now for me. A half dose say now
    On my volume of water.
    And a half dose 3 months later.
    But that depends how much weed is in the pond.
    That's how I keep on top of it.

    Clean it as soon as, you can always add a little more Resolve but you won’t dilute the water much by doing a quick clean.

    I’m a Resolve fan - works a treat and don’t cost the earth.

    no need to stop feeding, turn off the UV or worry about the koi - if you overdose the only impact will be a slight increase in KH.

    Cheers
