sadchevy Go to whatever pond supply store is near you and get a couple barley bales. They will help to clear up the water and keep algae in check>

jfynyson Go to Wal-Mart & get a quart bottle of 3% hydrogen peroxide for only $0.88. Any drug store would also have it.

Are their fish in there ? If so then do not add more than 2 tbsp / 10gal. Make sure you add it all over and mix it in (use a paddle or something)Hopefully you have a water fall or fountain on it. If so, makes sure it's running full blast when adding the peroxide. Allow to dwell & mix for 15 min (20min max) then perform at least a 50% water change.

Best method if no fish then pour in more peroxide. I emptied a full quart into my pond (~80 -100 gal) and the algae will fizz, eventually turn white/grey die (takes a day or so). Wait about a week then use a rake to remove it.

For that size pond I'd use an algae killer

These people have been around for a long time, and I've dealt with them successfully. Not used any of their algae products, mo ponjd is too small for what they sell.

And it's full of algae. How do I kill it and make my pond clear again. I built it last year at my grandparents house. Now they need me to help get it clear again
