pond including Koi. Ponds that do not have waterfalls

To choose the ideal filter for any pond you must
first know the correct flow through the filter to maintain ideal water quality
for your pond. (Please remember that the pond size alone
does not determine the filter or pump size without first taking into account the
many environmental and physical factors) 3 ways to get helpto establish flow
*No fish - Near natural garden ponds with plant zones, without fish. **Some fish - Garden pond with plants and fish stock of 40cm per 1,000 litres ***Medium fish - Garden pond with plants and fish stock of up to 60cm per 1,000 litres ****Lots fish / Light Koi - Garden pond with plants and fish stock of up to 80cm per 1,000 litres *****Koi & Turtles
note, if using a waterfall or a long hose between pump and filter the pump
will need to be larger to allow for the reduced flow caused by the
head (pumping height, and/or hose length) If in doubt
one of our
e-mail help forms and let us do all the calculations for you. # A little under size
for some pond sizes, but would work if the pond were smaller than the filters
maximum volume rating. ##
This pump is a little too strong, unless a
waterfall over 1m is in place. However, you can never have too much pond flow, so, by
releasing water back into the pond through a "Tee" and flow valve added
circulation is provided for the pond.
Tip 1: Place the pump
at the opposite end of the pond to the water return, and in the deepest part
of the pond.

chemical to prime filter systems, a great way to hasten biological activity.

If in doubt always choose a pump with less than the
maximum recommended flow and less than the recommended head height (see point 5). Within
reason the slower the water passes over the UV lamp and through the filter the
better the result. However, you can never have too much
pond flow, so, by having a slightly oversize pump and
releasing water directly back into the pond or on to a feature or waterfall through a "Tee"
with a flow valve, added circulation is provided for the pond.
