So got these last year, Corten steel, filled them up this afternoon.

Is there a trick to getting clear water?

Are you supposed to keep them clean (how)?

Let rain water fill them?


I suppose I should have thought about this before I bought them 😅

    Very swish!  Difficult - I find my biggish bird bath eventually clears if you leave it long enough and ditto the water feature with a small water pump. You can get a special black dye for a water feature aka Chelsea pools which presumably is okay for birds but not certain of that.

    Thanks - and yes I remember that black dye thread now, the product manager came on here talking about it.

    Maybe give it a go, you can see rust particles in the water when it settles which isn’t great either imo.
