Figures below represent the approximate pond size in litres, at a maximum of 1m head. If the filter is elevated (say in the case of a waterfall) this must be considered. i.e. a larger pump

No Fish* Pond Size - litres 15,000 16,000 20,000 30,000
Some Fish**Pond Size - litres 10,000 12,000 15,000 22,500

Koi Carp*****Pond Size - litres 3,000 3,000 5,000 7,500
*No fish - Near natural garden ponds in shade, at least 70cm deep with plant zones, without fish.
**Some fish - Garden pond with plants and fish stock of 40cm per 1,000 litres
***Medium fish - Garden pond with plants and fish stock of up to 60cm per 1,000 litres
****Lots fish Garden pond with plants and fish stock of up to 80cm per 1,000 litres
***** Koi carp - Pressure filters are not ideal for Koi or turtles due to the extreme amount of waste they create and have trouble processing the waste due to their design , therefore, gravity filters are better suited.
However, due to their size and fact that gravity filters must be mounted at the top of a waterfall or above pond level, there may be no other choice. In this case use a pressure filter but we suggest that the pump and filter be a little oversize maintain water quality.
