POND VOLUME: You will need to know the volume of water in your pond to properly care for your pond. It starts with the equipment you choose. Your pond filter equipment is based on your pond size. Pond pumps and filters need to circulate the entire pond volume 2x every hour. Meaning your pond pump needs to have a GPH reading at least twice the size of the total gallons of water in your pond. It is very important to know the correct gallon size of your pond when purchasing pond equipment, conditioning the water, treating the water for algae, when doing water changes, when purchasing fish or plants, and most importantly, when medicating sick koi. Failure to determine your correct pond size, when performing any of these tasks, could result in improper water balance, decreased filter and pump efficiency, increased fish ailments, or even fish death. Take the time to learn how to correctly determine the size of your pond.
