Seems to have the fifth part spelled out in the last paragraph, to the extent that it could be spelled out.
I feel like this is another example of "those less careful" having an advantage over those "more frum".

Depending on the age, circumstances a Rav may highly discourage this. Thereís a difference between a middle aged couple and newlyweds or even married longer who havenít been mekayeim pru urevu. Even older couples are likely asking for trouble at the very least with hirhurim assurim especially with a beach destination etc. and she has been assur to him for the better part of a month.

So... Asking for a friend, how does one know if a lake is kosher for mikva?

The bottom line is, don't use DDF for Halachic guidance on this. Go to your LOR who is well versed in the 5th part of Shulchan Oruch (in addition to the other pertinent part).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Obviously. However, there are advantages with coming with some background knowledge

Assuming we are talking about waters that are not completely still, one of the more complicated issues in mikvaos. Some of the factors include the season, recent rainfall, how the lake was formed, underground aquifers feeding the lake and its tributaries, storm water discharge, and rate of flow, and extenuating circumstances among others. You really have to be part hydrologist part Rav to accurately assess a particular lake or river. I have seen rabbanim who have made assumptions about lakes that were not borne out by the hydrological reality and were surprised to see the info.
