I have a pond with is approximatly 1700gallons. I have a green genie 24000 filter but it seems to be doing a fairly poor job at cleaning the water. I’ve had issue’s with blanket weed and have been using goodbye blanket weed but as a result i have lots of green gunk collecting in the filter. The filter pads appear to be working and i’m cleaning them every few days but i have noticed that there is allot of green gunk in the bottom of the filter box which i cannot help think is going back into the pond.

I’m not sure what to do really would a new filter be an option?

I have Orfes, a Sturgeon and some small Koi in the pond.

Any advice welcome please
