    New pond

    Havn't posted anything here in a llooonnnnggggg time so I thought I'd update news on the new pond. It's designed to look like it's connected to the old pond via stream and water garden but it's a completely seperate system. Filtration is through three air drains feeding a large settling chamber. This contains a pair of EA Answers which lead to an areated K1 chamber . The water is then pumped 100' up to the head of the stream. There is one large Savio skimmer -to bead filter-to UV and back to the pond via four underwater returns about a foot off the bottom. The koi pond itself is about 40' long , 8' wide at its widest and the whole pond if 5' deep. Total volume is around 10,000 gal.

    WOW, I'm very envious of all your ponds. Im only one year into my Koi hobby, and rent the house I live in. So my pond in very miniscule compared to most Ive seen here...
