Anyone know where in north Texas to buy bulk Aluminim Sulfate (Alum) powder or Calcium Sulfate or Calcium Carbonate powder to clear muddy pond? Thanks.

How big is your pond? I am dealing with a muddy tank myself and going to try the hay bale treatment before I go chemical. Gypsum is another option you have.

We have red clay ponds that we have used discarded sheet rock. Works great but probably need to throw in some every couple of years.

Will the sheetrock eventually dissipate

I've always been against using sheet rock in my ponds...mainly because you don't really know what is in it, what glues are used, what other chemicals, etc. Just too risky for me.

I use round bales of hay...just set them in, replace every couple of years. They work great and provide structure and breeding habitat for small critters that bass love. Using last year's hay makes the cost almost negligible.

Do you remove the twine or just role it in?

Yes, I use a net wrap on my baler and just remove the netting and drop in pond, Some of them may travel but most quickly sink to a spot and stay there for the duration.
