Posted on behalf of Budgie:

Hi There

My name is Budgie Burgess and live in Protea Heights Brackenfell, I have rejuvenated my pond (was a splash pool for 2 years) it is around 5000l. I have bought 2 bags of pool sand but only put 1 bag in the pool filter, from the pool filter I have another pool filter which I have converted to a Bio filter, inside I have a folded up shade cloth along with an old tube brush cleaner around 2 m long coiled up inside and finally a whole lot of plastic hair curlers. After the Bio Filter I have a UV light 280mm tube.

What I need to know is:

o How many bags of pool sand do I put in the pool filter.

o How many bags of salt is needed for the water.

o What chemicals do I need to purchase for water treatment.

o How many Koi is justifiable for this size pond.

o Finally what maintenance chemicals is needed.



I will really appreciate any advice given.



Regards

Budgie

HI,


o How many bags of pool sand do I put in the pool filter.......................Zero ( You need 2 bags 3-5mm sand and you need to modify the "fingers" of the sand filter)

o How many bags of salt is needed for the water. .............................. Zero

o What chemicals do I need to purchase for water treatment. ..............Zero

o How many Koi is justifiable for this size pond....................................5

o Finally what maintenance chemicals is needed...................................Zero
