Best Filtration System for Koi Ponds

The purpose of the KAMI MIZU™ bio filter system is to convert organic fish waste to carbon dioxide, which then dissipates harmlessly into the atmosphere.

This process, called nitrification occurs in bio filter chambers that contain media supporting the various types of bacteria necessary to complete this process.

It is now accepted that the way to achieve the best environment for the oxidization of bio matter is to create the ideal conditions where nitrifying bacteria can function efficiently.

Happy bacteria work harder, and the way to make them happy is by giving them a good home (in this case, media) in a highly oxygenated environment. The more successful types of media are those containing the greatest amount of surface area. 

  • Efficiency

  • Compare KAMI MIZU's Bio media efficiency, a side by side comparison of square footage surface area per cubic foot.Tell your brand's story through images. Most submersed systems are not as efficient because of insufficient filtration. The KAMI MIZU™ media works much more efficiently because of the infinite interconnected surface area. A 4x6 filter chamber of KAMI MIZU™ media is equivalent to a 10x10 area of gravel or matting or any other synthetic material.
  • 30 years of experience

  • For thirty years, we have been experimenting with different kinds of pond filtering systems for our own use and for our customers as well. We have used mechanical filters, bio bead pressure filters, fluidized, bio up flow, down flow, trickle tower with various kinds of media, including matting, lava rock, sponge, all types of gravel and rock, bio balls, bio rings, brushes and various kinds of media together in the same system. The fundamental concept being that the better your system and the healthier the environment for your fish, the more success you will have raising koi that reach their maximum potential.
  • Submersed up and down flow systems

  • KAMI MIZU™ media applied to submersed up & down flow systems: Most koi hobbyists have submersible bio and mechanical filter systems. Mechanical filters work well to remove heavy wastes and solids. The better ones can eliminate from 50 up to 100 microns of waste, although they can clear pond water they can't clean it well enough to assure bioconversion. In other words, clear water does not indicate its microbiological condition. How many times have you heard from frustrated hobbyists how clear their water was and how it passed all the test kit parameters but the fish still don't live up to expectations?
