The Construction of a Koi Pond in the Cayman Islands -
Jan - Aug 2002

PAGE 6 of 7

As I have said so many times .. the Filtration System is the most important part of any Koi Pond and has to be regarded, along with the pumps, as being the Heart and Lungs of the living pond ..

The System that was chosen by our customer was the All Stainless Steel System fitted with The Answer 410 from Evolution Aqua - which of course The East Riding Koi Co are main agents for and we were in fact the very first company in the world to buy goods from Evolution Aqua in June 2001 .... we have total faith in all of the Evolution Aqua products and can recommend them without worries to our many customers in all parts of the world ...

The Filtration System fitted comprises of 1x Primary Settlement Chamber served from 2 of The East Riding Koi Companies own special bottom drains which have the separate Air Line Ducting Connection, which are specially made for our company and those were fitted with the renowned Spindrifter Air Diffusers using 1/4" reinforced air hose ... There are 3 x Biological Chambers each fitted out with Blue Japanese Matting cartridges.

 

 

 

 

The Air system was purchased from the USA as we are unable, at this time, to supply the 110 volt models and were purchased from 'Aquatic Eco-Systems Inc' on our recommendation - these pumps are exactly the same as the Medo LA120 which of course are available for use with the normal 220-240 volt electricity supply throughout the UK and most of Europe and Asia ..

 

 

 

We apologise for the blue tint to these last few photographs .... don't know what happened...

One of The East Riding Koi Co's own surface Skimmers was fitted to the pond - these skimmers have been especially designed to take the place of a 18" x 9" Concrete block and have a removable inner collecting tray - unique to our design we also incorporate into the skimmer an adjustable front plate to make the fitting of these skimmer boxes that little bit easier - this provides 1/2 " tolerance which is often needed and overlooked when fitting other more conventional skimmer boxes... 
 

 

 

  The Finer particles from the surface skimmer which is powered by A Sequence 1/4hp pump - were finely filtered out by using the Hidroclean Cartridge Filter which we have promoted and sold successfully now for over 4 years ....

The Hidroclean cartridge is extremely easy to clean - simply remove the cartridge and then using a cradle to lay the cartridge on, something similar to a Yacht cradle .. it is a very easy task to hit the leaves of the cartridge with a hose pipe fitted with a jet nozzle, or better still if one is available, a pressure washer which makes the job so much easier ... we have sold hundreds of these Hidroclean Cartridge filters to customers in all parts of the world ...

The Hidroclean is of course available directly from:-
The East Riding Koi Co....

 Well .. now let's finally move on to the finished pond....
