    I have a medium sized pond that sits in the ground. I am not sure what I can do to keep this water clean. I have four ducks and I know no matter what I do the water will get muddy. So my question is, is there any cleaners or chemicals I can use that will keep it clean without harming the ducks? Anybody's help is much appreciated, thank you!

    Do you have a picture of your pond it's size may help someone figure out the best/easiest way to treat it. Also do you have bottom feeders in your pond such as catfish of crawdads/crayfish.

    In my experience, trying to keep a pound clean that has ducks in it is an exercise of futility. I haven't tried it myself, but i have heard that hydroponic filters work good because of the amount of waste the ducks produce. Good luck though.
