15,000 Gallon Koi Pond
Our pond is
located in Weston, Florida - has 15,000 gal, 10' deep in the
middle. It was constructed by Halo Pond and Gardens, Delray,
We used "Firestone - heavy rubber liner" and the filter system
is in two parts:
1. the waterfall pocket has a mesh filter
pad in it - and circulates into a 2 hp motor.pump - before
the water is returned to the pond, it goes through a 400
watt, 'viper' AquaTech UV lamp.
2. Pond water is circulated by a 2 hp
Heywood motor that feeds it into a large bio bead filter.
Then the water goes through a swimming pool filter (four
filters) that combats periodic bouts of algae. That filter
can be bypassed when not needed. Then the water passes
through another 400 watt viper UV and back into the pond.
We have one skimmer. 25 large, 3' koi and 200
cichlids of varying colors. The cichlids eat the poison buffo
toad eggs curtailing them to almost zero.
