Stock tank problems and how to solve them

  • Algae and mosquitoes.

Algae will thrive in stagnant water so do mosquitoes.

Algae will make your stock tank pool slippery and enjoying a good splash won’t be possible anymore.

Mosquitoes may bring malaria.

to avoid these chlorinate your water. Or get a filter pump to clean your stock tank pool regularly.

Also, drain your stock tank from time to time.

  • Rusting

If your tank ain’t properly galvanized, strains of rust will start to emerge.

Other than that, using a lot of chlorine to clean your water will accelerate corrosion. Use chlorine sparingly to preserve your metal tank.
