Having given up on Aquaplancton to clear the duck pond, I'm really considering filling it in and using a plastic paddling pool for them instead. It is too big to clean out more than once a fortnight but it is really mucky and smelly within a couple of days.
It is a dilema because they absolutely love being able to swim and dive and have room to chase each other around in it but it is so much work to try and keep it clean. I've looked at pumps and filters which would be about £250. If this would definitely work, it's something that would be worth doing but it's a lot of money to spend if the filter is just going to get blocked all the time. From what I've read, ducks are so messy that you need a real heavy duty filter. Anyone got any recommendations for filters/pumps that work well?
Or, should I just go for the blue plastic paddling pools that everyone seems to recommend???
