Components of a Koi Pond

Skimmer: This allows water to be drawn from the surface of the pond, by collecting leaves, pollen, twigs, uneaten food and other types of floating debris.

Bottom Drain: These are particularly useful in a pond that does not have rocks on the bottom, this allows the heavy solids to be carried to the mechanical filter.

Mechanical Filter: The job of this filter is to trap solids, preventing them from clogging the Biological filter.

Biological Filter: Converts the nitrogenous wastes from the fish. This cycle is called the nitrogen cycle. These filtrations are critical to the health of your fish, we help you choose the right one.

Ultraviolet light: This is used to make algae flocculate (form into clumps), so that they can be removed by mechanical filtration.

Water & Air Pumps: Circulate water through a filter system and back into the pond. Proper back pressure and pump sizing is vital for optimal functionality.
