Ek het n 10000l dammetjie met n submersible pomp wat so raps oor die 12 000 l per uur deurstoot.

As filters het ek 4x 150l dromme. 2x van hulle is half vol met krullers, spons en n klompie Bio Blocks. Die Submersible pomp staan in die derde drom. Die drom word gevoed uit die 4 de drom wat aan my bottom drain gekoppel is. Hierdie laaste drom gebruik ek dan ook as n settlement chamber.

Rowwe skets aangeheg.

Die setup is baie jonk, nog nie n maand oud nie. Enige verder advies oor die setup?
Is daar enige manier hoe ek die bio filters so bietjie kan aanjaag.
Ek luister by die radio......lol

Hi Sakkie. I think 150 litre for a settlement chamber is too small-the water will pass too quickly, no chance to 'settle'. I would suggest to use the first 2 drums from the bottom drain for mechanical filtration(filled with brushes or other filtermedia), the next 2 for bio convertion, and to add another drum at the end to put the pump in. From that last 'chamber', you can return the water to the pond through a UV, and maybe then a bakkieshower or waterfall. Just my opinion. Check this forum for all the info you need. To kickstart the bio, it will help if you can obtain some mature media from a koifriend. Other suggestions can also be viewed on this forum. Good luck, and enjoy.

Hi Sakkie
I agree with what Phillip V said, with drums that is the best way. You wont be able to feed much, cause its not much filtration. Very Happy Be careful not to overstock. Very Happy

Getting some matured media would be first prize like Philip suggested, otherwise look for a product called NUTRAFIN CYCLE - it will help kick start your bio filter.
