Several factors come into play when determining the appropriate filter size, such as the pond size and volume, the type of fish residing in the pond, and the pond's location. Additionally, whether your system is gravity or pump fed will also affect your filter requirements. A gravity fed system involves connecting a bottom drain from the pond to the filter, where the pump then pulls water from the filtration unit and returns it to the pond. Conversely, in a pump-fed system, the pump is located in the pond and pushes water through the filter before dropping back into the pond.
After selecting the appropriate filter type, the next critical components of your system are the pumps and UVCs. It's important to note that all filters and UVCs have maximum flow rates, and choosing the correct pump is crucial to ensure the nitrification cycle can successfully complete. This cycle involves breaking down ammonia from fish waste, resulting in the production of nitrite and then nitrate. Once the filter matures, clean water is then reintroduced back into the pond. Essentially, your filter acts as a miniature waste treatment plant.
Air pumps are an essential component for any serious fish keeper, as they offer a multitude of benefits. Primarily, they pump oxygen into the water, which is necessary for all fish to survive. At Perfect Pond Supplies, we highly recommend that all our customers have an air pump installed. In the event that your pond pump and filter system stops functioning, the air pump will ensure that your fish stay alive until the system is repaired.
Furthermore, air pumps help produce beneficial aerobic bacteria that use oxygen to quickly break down organic compounds and pond waste. Many filters now utilise air for moving beds, which facilitates this process. Additionally, an aerated bottom drain can assist in drawing waste from the pond into the drain, resulting in clearer water.
To achieve the crystal-clear water that most Koi keepers desire, it's recommended to use a polisher in addition to your primary filtration system. There are several types of polishers available, such as the Evolution Aqua Tempest.
We understand that selecting the appropriate filter system for your pond can be a challenging task. That's why we offer our customers expert advice and assistance. We can supply and install all the necessary equipment to ensure your pond is healthy and thriving.
