Choosing the right water pump for your Koi pond can make all the difference in the world.
In order to maintain a healthy environment for your Koi pond or water garden, you must run your water pump through your filter 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Naturally it is important to pick the right water pump for your Koi pond or water garden.
When choosing a pump, whether it be a Submersible Pump or a Dry Surface Pump be sure that the pump that you are thinking about buying will do the job properly.
For example: If your pond has 5,000 gallons capacity then you need a pump that will deliver a minimum of 2,500 gph (half the capacity of your pond) so that the water in your pond turns over once every 2 hours. A higher turn-over of one and a half times an hour is preferred.
