This simple trick is a chemical-free way to clear up murky water in small garden ponds within hours and keep it that way.

This advice is intended for anyone installing a small (under 1000 gallons – about the size of 10-person hot tub or less) prefab garden pond or other little container pond on a patio or balcony. Ive had several different types of ponds over the years, and, after a few learning curves, Ive got a system I really like—easy to care for with healthy water, plants, and fish.
