There seems to be about
as many ways to build a Koi pond and filter system as there are number of books
on the subject. You'll also find that rarely are two Koi ponds constructed
with exactly the same technique. Variations in pond design generally come
about from: size, location, budget, time, skill level, experience, available
materials, focus of pond (water garden, common koi, show koi., etc), fads,
commercial influence, and folklore. The best advice is to
to read as many books as is reasonable about pond design and talk to as many pond owners
and Koi experts in your area as possible before deciding on the design
of your fish pond. |
Since the right pond design for any one person is dependent on so many things particular to that person's situation, our club policy is to not have a preference or any particular type of pond, filter system, or pump manufacturer. As articles and information are added here, we will try to point out the advantages and disadvantages of various techniques to give you enough information to decide if it is right for your situation.
Excerpts from Dick Benbow's and Tony Prew's Seminar on Water Quality are available from Pond and Filter Guidelines and you can also enjoy our online Koi pond tour by viewing some of our Member Ponds with pond and filter schematics and stories by some of our members including Tim's step-by-step photographic record of building a koi pond.
