||Pondmaster Filter Kits ( PMK ) offer Pond-Mag Pumps along with Pondmaster filter trays and connective hardware for a variety of small to medium backyard ponds ranging from 50 gallons up to about 2000 gallons.These systems are designed to sit about 18" deep or deeper. You even get a fountain-head with rigid tubing when you buy the PMK kit. You could also choose instead of using the fountain to use your kit to supply water to a submersible UV Clarifier then up to your waterfall. Heck, with the right size system you could add a Pondmaster 3-way diverter-valve and do it ALL at the same time.
Moving water doesn't freeze easily. So in winter you disconnect all that and replace your filter pads to use your PMK Filter Kit to circulate the pond water keeping ice nice and thin.
Pondmaster PMK's are also VERY effective in larger than 2000 gallon ponds with skimmer and bio-falls systems that experience deep-water cloudiness or murkiness. PMK's can be a final touch, if you will, to move and clean the water that doesn't seem to make-it to your skimmer. And again, the whole winterizing thing; In our experience, it's usually safer for hardy Koi and other pond fish to keep them in their familiar surroundings through the winter months because that's what is NORMAL or natural for them. They go dormant and you don't have to feed them. When it comes to big fish 'CHANGE' is not good. Moving them to a smaller body of water that never cools down will stress them and invite fungus' and other water quality issues to start compromising the health of your fish. Then spring arrives and again another big change back in to the pond, more stress. This can be the final straw for the fish.
It's your job to keep your ponds' natural environment healthy,circulating and alive year-round. Pondmaster pump and filter kits are very inexpensive to run helping you to do so without using a big chunk of 'change'.
Northland Gardens offers the replacement parts and replacement filter pads/blocks for each of the Pondmaster Filter Kits. Most filter media/pads may be purchased 'BUY THE CASE' for additional savings.
