Algae Problem

I have Koi in my pool, about nine of them in 14,000 gallons of water. I have been using the pool to filter the water, but I am having trouble ridding the pool/pond of algae. Any ideas? -Chele

It depends on what type of algae you are having problems with. The type that makes the water itself green can be treated with a couple of powerful UV lights, like these: http://www.koiacres.com/Koi-Acres-Products/ultra-violet/high-output-uv.html.

If you are having problems with string algae, you can either add chemicals to remove it (which can be costly) or you can remove it by hand.
