Looking on the far right side of the diagram, you can see what is called the BIOFALLS Filter. Water flows through this filter and out into the pond. This filter is covered to make it look like a natural waterfall spilling into the water basin. We have many different types of falls including streams and classic waterfalls.
Plants are a very crucial part in the ecosystem of a pond. Clients that opt to not have plants put in the pond generally have to deal with a lot of green algae. The reason for this is because aquatic plants will use the nutrients that algae thrive on to grow themselves. These organisms come in a variety of types. Plants also help increase oxygen in the water, which helps to keep the pond aerated for any koi fish.
Fish also play a very crucial part in the ecosystem. From Koi Fish to Shubunkin and other pond fish, they help to keep the mosquito population down. From an aesthetics stand point they’re very important in a pond. There’s a reason they’re called Koi Ponds!
Adding gravel to a pond helps by nurturing the beneficial bacteria the wildlife in the pond use. It also keeps the rubber liner safe from UV rays and creates a more natural look for the pond.
The Skimmer filter unit is the second form of filtration in the pond ecosystem. It contains a plastic basket for easy removal of larger debris. This is also where the pump is stored that circulates the water back to the BIOFALLS Filter.
