    Markus, welcome to the board. It'll be great to have your input.

    I for one am not embarassed to say i don't know what an O2 reactor is? Is there another name it goes by. I suspect that may be the case. Please explain

    Hi,

    i hope that i can give you the right answer in english, because my english isnt so good, but i hope that you understand me.

    An o reactor is a maschine which mixed the o (oxygen) with your pond water. Man Koifreak do that with a oxigen koncentrator but this machine has a big power and your electricity bill would be very high.

    If someone is interested into a new way to bring much oxygen into the water without high electricity costs i can help you.

    Hello,

    I think he's referring to air, as in air pump.

    Yes I think Mike is right. We use air pumps here in the states.

    90% of the people use air pumps with air stones
    a few % add the use of venturis

    but i doubt many use pure o2

    the high turn over rate in my pond does most of the oxygenation for me, as all of my filtered water outlets down my waterfall, others have baki towers which have high pump rates and high aeration effect as well, others have air stones and or combinations of many of these together/ Sounds like you have new idea to share with us so go ahead and tell us about it.....
