Koi pond filter help?

Hello My husband and I just bought a house and I put in a koi pond. I've been doing lots of research, but I wanted to talk to some real people. We plan to do next summer, so I have time to think about it. We're putting in the corner in our backyard, and I want it to be about 20×15 with a waterfall and I want the depth of the range of 1-5 feet. We will use a liner, and the rocks with the same landscape. We wanted to try also to put a spring type bridge in one of the deepest parts of the lagoon. Now this is where I want to hit plants, but do not know what would be better for us. I also do not know what type of filter to achieve this? We will have koi and goldfish, and I want to be a low maintenance as possible …….

Depending on your location I would recommend increasing the maximum depth of about 6 feet if possible. Pond line can used however, to the best result and the life I would suggest that the pond is concrete or fiberglass. The concrete of course have to be sealed with paint pond or G4. As these plants should be avoided unless you want to see which are displaced by the habits of digging the Koi, which will consume vegetation water as part of their natural diet. Koi produce an incredible amount of waste so depending on the amount of fish they intend to introduce it is important that you buy a filter that can cope. When choosing a filtration system I always recommend selecting a model that is rated for at least two times the volume the pond. To feed the filter with water I would suggest the installation of a drain at the base, this would be ideal as the pond would have a sloping bottom, avoiding detritus at the base of the pond. Other recommended items of equipment including a UV clarifier to prevent algae growth, it must be installed in line with the filtration system. If you need more help then feel free to send an e-mail.
