Hi all
The pond water isn't as clear as normal I can see bits suspended in it that won't sink to the bottom where they can be removed by the filter. I have looked at a glass full and it is clear but some tiny white bits suspended in it. Could it be plankton due to the hot weather

How do I get the bits to sink?
Thanks

Steven and Doneena

try clay it clumps it together and helps it sink to your bottom drain and your filter
