Hi Swiss Sue, thanks for the suggestion, I'll look into it.
@Edd, There's no blanket weed, the water is just very cloudy. To explain it better, when I retrieve the filter/pump to clean it, the disturbance results in lots of sediment swirling around in the water. I've had a section of netting spread across the pond to catch all the leaves over the autumn & winter period, so I don't think the murkyness is caused by that. I'm thinking the Hozelock is no longer up to the job. The water coming from the pumps discharge hose looks clear, but the water itself is far from clear??
