My simple DIY airlift pump filter system that you need to know for the first time

This is my simple DIY filter system that I used in my breeding tank. I used mosquito net as filter media and old empty bottled water as filter housing.

There is an advantage in using airlift pump

  1. You will save electricity since you will no longer need to install aerator since air is used to lift the water.
  2. You will not be endangered by an electric shock from like using a submersible pump since submersible pump sometimes when broken already will ground in the water and cause to electrocute you and the koi fish.
  3. You no longer needed to install electrical wirings going to the koi pond since you can just run a garden hose to the airlift pump out from your window and the air pump that supplies air to the airlift pump can be installed inside your house.
