Can a high pH cause cloudy water? -Anthony

The most common cause of cloudy water in in Koi pond is poor filtration. If you don't have an adequate amount of filtration in your pond to remove organic and inorganic waste, they will build up and cause the "cloudy water". A little searching around the internet will reveal that high pH will cause cloudy water in swimming pools. A Koi pond is both very different and similar from a swimming pool. Both will have a filter system to remove debris. A pool needs chemicals to keep it clean and sterile. A Pond uses a biological or a chemical filter to keep it toxin free, but it is not sterile. If you have cloudy water, increase the amount of filtration on your pond.
