Know Your Koi Pond PumpWhen selecting a koi pond pump there are several things to keep in mind. Also don't just look at your situation today and pick the best koi pond pump for that. Anticipate your needs. Realizing that the health of your koi depend on reliable fish pond pump operation. One that's big enough for the job.
Know Your Fish Population Density
Obviously the more koi you keep in your pond the more fish poop you've got to remove. More waste means you'll need a more powerful pump.
The more you feed the more waste is produced too.
Plus any over crowded pond (and most just seem to end up that way) also requires a higher flow rate.
Successfully keeping a koi pond requires a properly sized koi pond water pump and filtration system. This is vital if you want healthy happy fish.
Then too a cheap koi pond pump can be an energy hog. Often you'll find water garden pumps to be a "pay me know or pay me later (and forever)" kind of thing.
