Update: Blagdon was ineffective for me.

Thanks, I'll keep it in mind if the algae returns. My pond's been clear for months now because I started feeding the goldfish every week,...

Worth what I paid for it! Turned out the lecturer only spoke Arabic. Check the course description closely before starting.. Don't think I...

How much training in nutrition were you afforded whilst earning your qualifications?

Best reply yet!!!

It was a factory recall to replace the valve body. Some problem with the original that could cause rough shifting, though I never...

All our frogs kept disappearing. Then one day we found the green tree snake! Mystery solved, without solution.

Thanks for your reply. I will keep it in mind.

Thanks. You don't say how effective it is though....some of the reviews sound troubling.

The Blagdon 250ml Green Away for Ponds (more than enough for my size pond) is only $26 on eBay, so I'll give it a go, I think. Thanks. Will...

Sounds good, but as you say, rather expensive...

Sounds drastic! Moving them to my bathtub sounds mildly inconvenient, in the long term...

I looked up the plecostomus, but are they rugged enough to throw in an outside pond and ignore? Sounded like they need a bit of babying to...
02/10/2019 - 06:24
We've got shade cloth above most of it and overhanging plants (which may also contribute to the problem when bits fall in), so only a few...
02/10/2019 - 06:21
Yeah, I know they don't need it, but they look at me with such longing in their little eyes as they follow me around the pond. We once had...

I run a bubbler during the night to add oxygen (I read that the water plants extract the most oxygen during the night) and cleaned it all...

From fertiliser? Don't use them near the pond, unless the wife is up to something with her hanging plants....hmmm.
02/10/2019 - 06:11
Sounds worth a try. Thanks. Hope the goldfish don't eat 'em.

We tried numerous Algae removal chemicals last year in our shallow 1500 litre, mostly shaded, goldfish pond to no avail. It cleared over...

Certainly doesn't smell sweet, more like used engine oil. I'll visit some local AutoTrans shops to get some quotes on a rebuild, just...

OK, thanks. Seems like nobody here's had the slipping clutches or bad gear changes issues after doing a full flush.
30/09/2019 - 17:28
This is what I'm leaning towards atm.
30/09/2019 - 06:52
I'd appreciate knowing if those that are voting for a full flush have ever done so after the fluid had already been brown for a while. I...
30/09/2019 - 06:51
I think the theory is that you leave enough metal in the fluid that your worn clutch plates can still grip. I've seen reports that full...

My MY2010 Hyundai i30 Diesel auto transmission fluid is currently a brown colour, half-way between pink (good) & black (bad). It's now done...

If the HDD still works & has a SATA interface, transfer it to an external USB case and use it for removable storage/backup for your other...

Has anyone used these for a domestic fence? Wonder if any installers will use them?

What type of posts are used? Are they Duragal (which I believe has to be painted where the concrete touches them), hot dip galv, hot dip...
