Bottom drains are one of the most important introductions to koi pond construction. If you need help choosing a bottom drain for a koi pond, then you've come to the right place! We've been successfully installing bottom drains to koi ponds for over 20 years, whether a fibreglass lined koi pond or when using butyl, EPDM, or PVC liners.
The placement and design of the bottom drain allows the majority of fish waste and detritus in the koi pond to be effectively transported to the filter for removal.
At Kitsu Koi, we supply bottom drains for liner ponds and fibreglass ponds, in sizes from 2" suitable for quarantine ponds to custom made 6" for large pond systems. We keep bottom drains in stock up to 4", if you require larger fabricated items, please contact us.
Koi ponds often look better when a pond skimmer is used. Falling leaves, uneaten koi food and air bourne dusts are collected from the pond surface before they have a chance to sink and cloud the water.
Using a pond skimmer allows you to fit additional filtration to cope with stocking levels encountered in hobbyist koi ponds.
