Hi Jimmy,

I tend to rotate it year on year, had good success both with columbo’s stuff, Aqua source resolve and kusuri eco gold. This year was kusuri econgold powder and it nailed it 😃

Cloverleaf Blanket Answer for me too!!


4400 Gals; gravity fed Nexus 300 to EA 55W UV (fed by dry mounted Messner 13000) and Bakki Shower (4 tray) directly pump fed (20,000 l/hr) from the pond; independent skimmer line which is fed by a dry mounted pump through a small sand filter, Airtec 130, unheated.

I used to swap every year like Malcolm in the belief that somehow the dreaded stuff became immune, but have stuck to the Columbo for at least 4 years now and its still working fine.

Bring back clarosan though was unbeatable.

I've gone for pergola for shade to keep the sun off and an Aquaponic trough to starve the blanket weed of nitrates. No chemicals, works for me with benefit of loads of watercress, chard and spinach to harvest.

Aquasource resolve. It's been brilliant for me and doesn't turn water milky or anything
