If you’re building a koi fish pond you’ll need some different equipment than traditional garden pond supplies. Actually the entire project will be completely different. You’ll want deep straight walls and some type of coverage to protect the koi fish in the pond from predators. Lots of aeration, and filtration. Checkout the wide range of koi fish pond supplies available and contact me if you need anything you don’t see listed.The size of pump you use is also contingent on whether or not you have plants and fish. If you don’t, and it is strictly ornamental in nature, size the pump to achieve the effect you want with your waterfall. In this case power usage may not be as much because the system is only running four to six hours a day. The pump will need to run long enough each day to cycle the water through the filter a number of times. When I say cycle I mean the water is completely recirculated one time. Anyway, the only other time you need the pump running is to run your waterfall. The pond pump must run continuously if it is maintaining a fish pond. Either way, you want to use the smallest pump you can to do the job, or at least a high quality, energy efficient pump. When choosing pumps, or any other equipment for that matter, please decide what your requirements are and then obtain the specifications you need from the equipement manufacturer or supplier. Although there are several ways of putting together these systems, they all work on the same basic principal.
