GEORGE'S MAGIC BOX
After keeping koi for well over thirty years and having a really good filter which I had designed that kept my water crystal clear 365 days a year, but the advice in those early years was to make your filter as large as possible (the volume of the pond is 5,500 imp gallons) so mine was over six foot long by two foot wide and three foot deep and as stated it worked brilliantly the only problem being it needed regular cleaning to keep the water flow at its maximum and it must have been doing a good job because I still have several koi over twenty five years old , but I decided that I had to do something about having to clean the filter so often, So I designed the filter that I have been using now for the last eight or nine years. it needs cleaning no more than three or four times a year and I call it GEORGE'S MAGIC BOX it never slows the water flow and it is literally maintenance free, and now the size has been reduced down to only 42"x18"x30" deep.
