Koi pond pumps
assist in maintaining a healthy environment for your Koi. Pumps are
not always necessary in smaller ponds as biological filters often
can do the cleaning of the water by itself. But in larger ponds, Koi
pond pumps are necessary. Koi fish like larger ponds. But it is more
difficult to maintain a balanced level of health in a larger pond,
without mechanical assistance in the form of filters and Koi pond
With larger ponds, it is recommended to use an external pond pump.
External pond pumps are usually required because they are more powerful
than submersible pumps. Though with new technology, some submersible
pumps are becoming as powerful as some external Koi pond pumps. Submersible
pumps are somewhat more desirable as they are easier to hide.
The prices of external Koi pond pumps are not cheap – you are
probably looking somewhere between $200 to $400 for one. Keep this
in mind when you are planning your budget for a Koi pond. Look for
a Koi pond pump that is low maintenance and high power and you should
be able to enjoy your Koi pond for many years to come.
