A Koi pond can be one of the best retreats available.  The chance to simply relax and appreciate the beauty that is so unique to these living jewels.

It has been said that "we don't keep fish, but rather water." To a large extent this is true.

We offer water treatment products and water test kits to enable you to maintain a quality environment for your Koi. 

You'll need to know your Pond Volume in order to best apply treatment.  We have included our pond volume calculator link on the left for your convenience.

When to test.

An established pond with healthy Koi fish should be checked every month.  It is only when you notice something out of the ordinary, and possibly during seasonal changes, that an additional test or two might be prudent. 

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.  A simple test, at the right time, can prevent a minor problem from becoming a catastrophe. 

When starting up a new pond or Bio-converter system, daily tests may be required until the converter comes on line, then weekly for a couple of months until the system has stabilized.
