Weeds in a pond

We have a small 1/2 acre pond that is being taken over by Cattails, watershield and water lilly's.

I've found a spray that works on the Cattails, but it didn't appear to work on the others.

Anyone have any experience with controlling these weeds?
We don't have much in the way of fish in the pond, ( a few sunnies and goldfish) and i plan on draining it and making it deeper next year.

Looking for something not too expensive.

Sorry, not sure on this one. My only experience is with cattails, and it sounds like you have that part of the issue taken care of.

I think Monsanto claims that Roundup will work in a pond and will not kill fish...

From what I understand Roundup is toxic to fish. I've had good results with the products from www.KillLakeWeeds.com. The aquacide pellets take care of most weeds.

I've heard copper sulfate. I'd check it out first before I used it. Google it some good articles and products.

Parrot DF is Diuron, but it's not labelled for water use.

Copper sulfate will kill algae but not emerging weeds like cattails.
