Pond Filtration

Deciding what type of filtration your new or existing pond needs depends on the level of water quality you wish to achieve. Do you want clear water for your fountain display? Or do you need to sustain the life of plants and koi for many years? At the very least, most pond keepers want clear, algae-free water. Koi enthusiasts demand more pristine water conditions with no ammonia or phosphate, and plenty of nitrifying bacteria to break down dangerous waste products into beneficial fertilizers.

The subject of proper Koi pond filtration still continues to puzzle even many experienced enthusiasts in the hobby.

Pond Filtration
However, to the more confused newcomer, the wide range of systems available and their various forms of operation, combined with well-intended advice from a 'friend-in-the-know' and the belief that filtering a Koi pond properly is 'kids stuff', all tend to lead to more confusion and, usually into making the wrong choice. Unfortunately this wrong choice is only apparent after a given period of time - when it is too late !
In truth, a Koi pond filtration system is running constantly, 24 hours per day, 7 days a week and 365 days per year. Over a one year period the entire water from the pond will pass through the system between 2,000 and 3,000 times. 

In a 10,000 gallon pond, the filtration system will handle between 20 and 30 million gallons of debris-laden water per year!

It is now possible to build or purchase proper filtration systems that will handle the flow rates required, and that provide the correct flow patterns and will ensure that all mechanical debris etc can be efficiently discharged to waste with a minimum of daily maintenance. 

These Especially made units are made by Koi People for Koi People - they are designed in such a way as to cut down the Labour intensive 'Cleaning Out Process' which has always been a chore. Shaped bottoms on these units allow the debris and fish waste to drop down below the filter media - thus avoiding contamination.

The most efficient systems today incorporate a Prime 'Vortex' as the first line of attack is the Vortex.  The Vortex collects the waste matter - where it is then separated from the clean water by continually and slowly spinning the water so that the waste settles into the conical shaped bottom.

The Vortex can remove nearly 85% of all the solids thus ensuring good quality water entering the next stage of the filtration on its way back to the pond.


We also stock many 'Multi Chamber' filter systems - again manufactured in either PVC or Fibre Glass - which have always been a firm favorite of the traditional Koi keeper.

We do of course stock what has to be the most revolutionary filtration system ever to be produced for both the serious Koi enthusiast or the pond keeper alike .. The NEXUS

We urge you to take a close look at this system when you are considering which filtration system would suit you best.
