KOI JOY'S AMAZING "SUPER FALLS" PUMPS-
These are the best centrifugal pumps available for the koi ponds. These pumps are extremely energy efficient, with several models to choose from. Our 1/10 hp models draw less current than any other pumps we've ever seen. SUPER FALLS KJ4000LH pumps put out an amazing 60 gpm at only 2.3 amps (at 1' head)! Our low head pumps use 1/10 hp motors coupled to pumps of varying impellers to achieve flows of from 2100 gph (35 gpm) to 3600 gph (60 gpm). Our medium head pump model SUPER FALLS KJ4500MH uses a 1/2 hp motor to allow a higher flow of 4500 gph (75 gpm) and pressure with less amps than our nearest competitor (MDM ). With their super energy efficient motors, these pumps use much less electricity than the pumps used by most pond owners and can pay for themselves in energy savings in as little as 1 year. At a monthly cost of $10 / amp, it actually pays to replace existing pumps with these energy misers.
The high capacity, low head pumps are ideal for up-flow filters, waterfalls, or any high flow recirculation system that doesn't require high pressure. For higher pressure requirements, choose our 1/2 hp SUPER FALLS KJ4500MH. or other higher rated pumps as shown below. All pumps are supplied prewired with 115 volt or 230 volt cords as desired, and furnished with two slip fit unions for easy installation and removal. 230 volt available at $10 extra charge on models KJ4500MH thru KJ8500MH. All pumps are 2" inlet and outlet for highest possible performance.
Leaf traps for these pumps or any other pump are available for $59.99 each ($49.99 when ordered with pump). These large 6" traps have a clear plastic top with large "O" ring for positive seal and are easily opened and closed.

BIO-LYTE GRAVEL ZEOLITE/FILTER MEDIA: NOWHERE ELSE!
These new BIO-LYTE filter medias are possibly the best filter materials available anywhere. Our natural zeolite gravels have three unique properties. Because of its large void space, our gravel has a tremendous surface area. Some of this large surface area is within the pores and voids, while the rest is on the exterior surface. These two regions of high surface area combine to make one of the most compact media available for filters.
It's added ability to remove ammonia directly from pond water as its generated, prevents the ammonia cycle swings common to most ponds and bio-filters. The ammonia resulting from fish waste and other sources are the major contributing factor to pond fish disease and death. One ft3 of BIO-LYTE GRAVEL can remove more than 1 lb of ammonia before regeneration is necessary. When its ion exchange capability is depleted, BIO-LYTE GRAVEL is still working better as a bio filter media than most others! When depleted, or on a monthly or quarterly basis, simply valve out your filter, turn off pump, and add a solution of salt water. The salt water forces all of the accumulated ammonia out of the BIO-LYTE GRAVEL which is then discharged to drain. Backwash and rinse out filter, and then return to service (we recommend installing an air backwash manifold under the gravel or use of a garden hose & water jet to simplify backwashing).
BIO-LYTE GRAVEL has a weight of 60 lb/ft3, 50 % of the weight of pea gravel, making it light enough to handle easily. This light weight makes it easier to handle, backwash, and use in almost any container-even plastic drums, Rubbermaid stock tanks, or our square 45 gal SLT-45 filter tubs. Try that with pea gravel or rock! We truly believe our BIO-LYTE GRAVEL to be the revolution in pond filters we've all been waiting for. Use it in your next filter to reduce it's size or replace the gravel in your existing filter to increase it's performance (up to double the performance of pea gravel).
Use BL-10, 10 lb hanging bags of BIO-LYTE GRAVEL to hang in pond or tank, or toss into filter to improve its performance. Use one or more bags for each 1000-2000 gallons in pond, or one for each sick tank, show or dispalay tank. Each bag can absorb more than 1/3 lb ammonia from your water. BIO-LYTE GRAVEL polyester weave bags have brass grommets and drawstrings with barrel locks. Remove periodically and recharge with salt as above (frequency depends on number of bags, how well your filter works, quantity of fish, etc.). These are the only way of absorbing ammonia in cold winter pond water after your bio-filter's bacteria has died off. Protect your valuable koi during the winter month's too!
BL-10, 10 LBS, POLYESTER BAG, $29.99, (5 BAGS @ $89.00)
BL-50, 50 LBS, PAPER, BULK, $39.99, (150 lbs @ $99.99).
