DIY Koi Pond Filter Part 2 - Maintenance




What do you think about this video?

Mark Powel: please can you tell me how you built it and what size pipes you used because its a really good idea because am new to this´╗┐

boyracerdestroyer23: wizard in bin 1 why dont you add airball to agitate the k1 when cleaning ? just like the eazypod be more efficient ? gonna go ahead today and build mine got 75 litres k1 see how it goes from there , any ideas for finally polishing the water , or is none required , also got a protein skimmer coming ,reckon i should use this before the first bin ,gravity dropped thanks

WizardAt69: 35 litres in mechanical stage [bin 1], 65 litres in biological stage [bin 2]

DanielOzzie: Do you have a air ring/stone in stage one? or just in bio stage two? nice setup by the way

WizardAt69: @FLUNGcrap yes aquarium silicone

boyracerdestroyer23: great , how much k1 did you use in each bin ? thanks

boyracerdestroyer23: great so 100 litres of k1 , but what is the water quality like and what size pond ? ive got 1300 gallons heavily stocked will it cope? thanks again

ricky n: what did you use to seal the 4" pipe is that silicone or something ??????

ANTUK4: what do you top it up with .tap water is full of crap and kills the benifical bacteria that you just built up in your filter ????

WizardAt69: This filter has now been running successfully on a 3000 gallon pond for about a year. Kaldnes K1 has been proven in fish farming "Koi are typically fed at between 1% - 2% of body weight per day. For every 5 grams of food fed,1 litre of K1 media is required in the moving bed bilogical stage " - in my example 65 litres would easily support 325g food/day [or 16kg [35lbs]of koi]. Just add more stage 2 bins to support more fish. K1 in my opinion is fantastic stuff.

WizardAt69: @DanielOzzie just in stage 2. I now place an a few airstones in stage 1 but only to agitate it whilst cleaning

Mostlyfun: @WizardAt69 Hi I agree K1 is great stuff but I've been experimenting with different food safe plastics and have found that plastic water bottle caps work well I scuff them up in a cement mixer with some sharp pieces of steel to provide places for the bacteria to cling to then use as K1 in one of my filter chambers. While not as good as K1 there is something fun about cleaning water with potential litter and they are free.

WizardAt69: @Zeamus634 This prototype was flushed into a bucket to enable ease of checking the flushed water

WizardAt69: @ANTUK4 The pond pump tops up the filter. The pond water is topped up with pre treated water

mp3dash: nice setup. have you got video or pics of the build. What the pipe coming through the lid for what that used for...

WizardAt69: @Mostlyfun if it works good for you

Paul Blundell: Hi do you have a video of how you did this please

Zeamus634: Why don't you connect a pipe to the discharge valve and put it down the drain instead of using a tub?
