Bottom Drains for Ponds

A bottom drain is a drain connected to the pond filter. The dirt sediment on the bottom is consequently removed and transported directly through the drain. When installing a pond the drain should be placed on the deepest point of the pond. Especially in case of strained koi ponds this is a popular method to remove waste material. Bottom sludge is disastrous for clear water and a pathogen for your fish. Owing to the water pressure the water containing dirt will flow by itself through the drain into the multi-chamber filter. The pump will be dry position, after the filter, to return the filtered water to the pond. Applying a drain, the filter will always be filled with water, even if there would be loss of supply.




Many pond builders have found that adding a bottom drain helps keep a pond cleaner. Fish waste and other muck that accumulates on a pond bottom can be easily removed by a bottom drain. Ponds that are over 2′ deep can become stagnant without a bottom drain. Check out these great drains by EasyPro Pond Products.
