Koi fish and other varieties are great sea life to look after in a pond in your back garden. Even if you do not like the idea of owning and taking care of fish, a pond could still be a great way to make use of that space in your garden that is just…you know, kind of there.
Although ponds and fish ponds may seem like rather easy things to set-up though, you need to consider the fact that there is a lot of time, effort and work involved in the initial building of a pond but also throughout its lifespan. There is nothing less appealing than a pond with rancid, algae-ridden water. There is therefore some equipment you need to invest in – a pond and some kind of filtration setup, is the most basic requirements for a healthy pond.
If you are stuck knowing which product to choose though, as there are hundreds and thousands of different pond pumps on the market, you might want to stop for a moment and read our post about the Jebao UV Pressurized Koi Fish Pond Filter and see if this meets your need. This at least will cover the filter side of things, as you will still need to invest in a separate and compatible pump.
The idea behind the design of this Jebao all-in-one style pressurized pond filter is to bring the two separate, and essential components, of a mechanical filtration device with a UV sterilizer together in a single item. You are supplied all bits you need to use it properly – the UV bulb, bio balls and sponge filters.
It is important whenever you are running a UV light sterilizer, as you’d imagine because bulbs eventually die, to check that the bulb is still shining. Without needing to get wet or dirty, there is a viewpoint on top of the unit that means you can check on the functionality of the bulb as and when you need to. Without hassle.
Fully Submersible – Almost
If you are worried about how it might affect your pond’s visual appeal, don’t be. This device can be almost fully submerged in the water, with just the lid sticking out of the water. Out of sight, but still working away at keeping your pond clean and algae-free.
Keeping The Filter Clean
Just as is the case with the UV indicator, there is also a special indicator that you can check to see whether or not the filters need to be cleaned or not. Obviously, they should be cleaned at regular intervals to ensure they work effectively and efficiently and do not get clogged up.
Requires Dirty Water-Style Pump
The unit, that is the sterilizer and filtration system have been designed with dirty water solids-handling pump in mind. If you are therefore interested in purchasing this filter and sterilizer unit, you need to ensure that you invest in the right kind of pump.
