Summer maintenance included weekly liquid fertilizer added to the pond and barley mixture added to the filter. The UV filter ran all summer and we never had a pea soup algae bloom. Had lots of other types of algae, but not the single cell problem of 2012.
It was a hot dry summer and I left most of the plant cover on the pond for August, even though the books say not to. Everything was thriving so well and the water looked so natural and clean that I wanted to keep it shaded with all the plants.
