Pond Filtration

Utopia Koi has decades of specialist knowledge using and specifying pond filtration systems in house and indeed for our customers.

Pond filtration is a critical part of any good Koi pond, large or small. Getting the filtration system right will determine the success or failure of your pond and we really want your pond to be a success.

Koi pond filtration is a very expansive topic which manages to confuse even the most experienced Koi keepers. More and more systems flood the market every year and each year the filtration systems seem to become more complex.

There are many types of pond filtration system available which all work in different ways and all have advantages as well as disadvantages.

If you’re new to the hobby and you’re building a Koi pond for the first time or if you have built your first pond and are now in the middle of overhauling it to improve any mistakes you made the first time round, at Utopia Koi we are here to help and save the frustration and disappointment of getting it wrong.

Think of your pond filtration system as the heart of the pond. It’s engine so to speak. It’s massively important and after all we are water keepers not koi keepers. If you get the water right the rest will follow.

How do you size the filter? How many times does the water need to go through the filter in an hour? Pump fed? Gravity fed with a bottom drain? How many bottom drains? Surface skimmer… Surface what?
