    a doubt regarding over flow

    Hi,

    This may seem a pretty dumb doubt to be asked . I have come across articles by a few seasoned koi keepers mentioning that whenever water is being replenished in the pond , it should be through over flow . What exactly does this mean ?

    I know that a pond should have an overflow outlet. But when ones replenishing water , and one forgets to turn off the source , and overflow outlet is not a safety barrier , it will just route out the water level that is rising .

    Thanks,
    Sanjay

    Hi Sanjay, I think some thing has got mixed up in translation. may have said OUT FLOW , meaning the point where the water leaves the filters and returns to the pond, thus mixing the new water and the cleaned pond waters. THIS REDUCES THE RISK OF CHLORINE BURN and the creation of hot spots.
    Hope thats whats meant.
