You need to take the shoots off the sweet potato when they are long enough & root them as cuttings , I don't think you can actually plant the tuber.

The post will only rot at ground level, it does not matter what you put in the bottom of the hole. A pressure treated post will last around 10 years. if you use metposts the post will still rot they just make it easier to replace & in my opinion they look horrible.

Many koi keepers use watercress in their filter systems rather than the pond itself, it does need flowing water to grow well.

The UV will not work on blanket weed though, it only works on clearing the algae that cause green water.
