Phosphate in my pond

Hi guys, i checked the phosphate in my 450 gallons pond (API test) and the result is terrible, around 10.0, so i did rent the pond vacuum, cleaned very well the bottom of the pond, removed all the rotten leaves etc, and i did a big water change, around 1/3 of the water. I cleaned the filter and i added TETRA ANTI PHOSPHATE. I used tap water(0.25 the phosphate level of the tap water) to refill my pond, and this morning I checked again the level which is the same.

I don't have a lot of fish just 7 (two small koi and 5 goldfish) and i didn't feed the fish during the winter.

Could you advise me please if there is something i can do try to keep the levels down?

Thanks guys.
