Fowler Koi Pond With Waterfall and Stream- By Columbia Water Gardens

18 Mar

The construction of this koi pond features a 150 gallon upper pond that feeds a stream that waterfalls into a 1400 gallon lower pond that is 3 feet deep. In the building of this koi pond we used a Tetra PUV2500 to filter the pond against algae using untraviolet light (uv) and to biologically filter the fish waste. The design of this system utilizes a bottom drain and an under water pond return (TPR) to give a nice ripple effect as the filtered water re-enters the pond. There are 2 planting shelves and a “no rock” bottom. The upper pond can be used to harvest water hyacinth and water lettuce for the main pond. It’s also a nice area for incubating fry in the event that the koi in the main pond spawn. For more pond designs, visit our free pond design center right from your home or office at We have distribution points nationwide so shipping is usually free and fast nationwide. Give us a call to troubleshoot your pond or for advice on setting up one of your very own. You’ll be glad you did.
