This is one example of the type we recieve almost daily:

Hi I recently had a pool installed and wanted to go natural. Unfortunately I don't think the contractor really knows much about natural pools although he claimed to be an expert. Long story short. I've got a green dam full of algae and little organism which include some biting my children! ...and I don't know how to fix it!! Is there any natural product that will loosen the algae without harming the plants and fish in the pond? I live just outside Pretoria and desperately need a pool doctor!! Can you PLEASE help, assist or refer? Thank you So much Things I realized while dong some research: My pond might be too small ( plants are beautiful though), I might need some volcanic rocks / special rocks?

Ja well, biological ecosystems, particularly aquatic ones, are complex! If you create the environment for the wrong beasties, you will have a paradise for algae and disease organisms.
