Koi Pond Supplies That You’ll Need

When starting out with a new koi pond, you’ll need to get some proper supplies in order to set up your pond successfully.

It’s an exciting project, and when you have a beautiful koi fish pond, it really becomes an integral part of your home, as it is a living breathing creature in itself.

Supplies For The New Koi Pond

One of the first considerations, when looking at supplies, is the size of pond that you want, whether you’re going to have an indoor or outdoor pond (both are possible), and your budget.

It’s a full on type of project as it may involve digging up of your garden, if there isn’t already a koi pond in the home left from the previous owner. This is the situation in most cases. Some people do it themselves, which is time consuming, but this is part of the challenge for some people, as they want to do the construction of the pond as a passionate hobby.

But an alternative would be to pay a garden pond construction company to make you one.

Depending on their knowledge of koi, the pond construction company may have up to date know-how about how to properly construct koi ponds in terms of dimensions and contours required, the location of the filter and pump, the requirement for air pumps, bottom drains, netting, etc.

If they don’t, then find another one, or if your own knowledge is good, then you’ll know what your pond will need.

Your supplies, therefore, could include:

  • Koi pond designs (poor designs can make it difficult to have proper filtration)
  • Construction materials for the pond
  • Bottom drains Pond Bottom Drain
  • Ponds filter and pump
  • Pond heating systems (pond deicer)
  • Pond de-icers
  • Koi nets
  • Imported Japanese koi or locally farmed koi
  • Koi food
  • UV pond filters
  • Pond aerator

  • Many pond builders have found that adding a bottom drain helps keep a pond cleaner. Fish waste and other muck that accumulates on a pond bottom can be easily removed by a bottom drain. Ponds that are over 2′ deep can become stagnant without a bottom drain.
  • Installed under the liner, flex PVC pipe carries the water under the liner to the skimmer box. Bulkhead fitting is installed in the skimmer, a PVC male adapter connects the flex PVC to the bulkhead fitting. The valve is placed inside the skimmer box to control flow. When the pump is turned on, water will flow into the skimmer through the skimmer faceplate (surface water) as well as the bottom drain.
  • You can control how much water goes in through the top/bottom inlets with valve (included)
  • Kits include bottom drain, bulkhead fitting, valve and fittings – does not include PVC pipe
  • 3″ kit recommended for PS2 skimmers, BDK3 kits include EBD4N bottom drain and are intended for use with 3″ pipe

CPF-pressure pond filter series is among the latest generation of pond filters, combining in a compact system, a high-performance bio-mechanical filter along with the most modern UV technology.

The filter is unremarkably dug in at the edge of the pond. The compact way of construction makes the pond technology almost completely disappear.

Any and all connections as well as the whole field of technology are found in the top cover.

The pond filter can be dug in without any problems. The pond water can be pumped to higher-located waterfalls and from this point return into the garden pond.

The pressure pond filter ensures a stable, biological balance and improves the water quality.

Along with the appropriate pump (not included in the supply, please note the pond pump´s maximum volume capacity), this ensures for clear water, thus creating healthy surroundings for the pond inhabitants.

Operation pressure pond filters with integrated UV unit are the combination of biological and mechanical filtration and contribute to the effectiveness by a UV-c pond clarifier.

Due to their UV radiation, UVC pond clarifiers alternate the algae proteins´ tertiary and quaternary structure which causes their destruction.

The algae’s clump, thus forming large parts of particles that can be easily removed from the water circulation by the mechanical pond filtration of the pond filter.

During the bio-mechanical cleaning microorganisms accumulate inside the filter and remove germs and bacteria from the water.

By the way of mechanical filtration, floating particles and dirt remain in the pond filter and do not return into the pond water.

Koi Pond Supplies If You Already Have A Pond

When you already have a koi pond working well, you’ll have 3 aims with your koi pond supplies:

1. To provide supplies that you’ll need to solve an important koi pond problem such as algae blooms, inadequate filtration, or birds attacking your fish.

For example, algae blooms may require additional shade if possible, adequate filtration, vacuuming of debris sludge, ultraviolet sterilizers to reduce bacterial load, or enzyme or salt products.

2. To provide supplies that you need to prevent a problem that has not occurred but probably will.

For example, prolonged winters may require a pond heater to reduce the duration of the winter (if you have extreme winters) to about 2 months of the year. You don’t have to heat the pond in the coldest 2 months of the year, since koi survives well even in freezing conditions, but it is the long duration of cold climates that may require you to use the pond filter a few months on either side, to reduce the overall duration of their exposure to cold. The topic of heaters is widely debated – it’s a heated topic!

3. To provide ongoing supplies such as quality koi fish food. Koi food can vary with the suppliers depending on the season.

For example, in winter, metabolic rates are slower and there’s a lower protein requirement, so you can find winter koi food with lower protein content. Summer is a time of more rapid growth and spawning, and therefore demand a higher protein content die
