Case Study – Koi Water Barn

Chlorine Reduction for Freshwater Cold Fish (Koi)

Koi Water Barn are one of the UK’s largest Koi suppliers. With a brand-new showroom opening at Coolings Garden Centre in Sevenoaks, all staff were on hand to set up purpose-built ponds for the exciting grand opening. With an amazing 8,000-gallon tank being unveiled with “selfie” glass viewing panels, this offers an amazing opportunity to view the larger Oya as they swim freely in this spectacular facility.

With events ranging from specialist talks from breeders, to the highly anticipated Tosai competition where 6 breeders offer 60 fish for sale, the health of the fish is critical.

Fileder have worked in partnership with Keith Holmes, the General Manager for many years now utilising both high efficiency particulate filtration and high flow carbon treatment in maintaining water quality.

The presence of Chlorine in the water can irritate gills, especially in Koi as this attacks the delicate gill tissue causing it to become inflamed, inhibiting oxygen transfer.

Fish with this problem can be seen “gasping” for air at the top of ponds, sitting on the bottom of tanks or “flicking” on their sides to address the irritation in gills.

Treating the water with depth or bag filtration, followed by Carbon treatment can significantly reduce this, promoting healthy growth and management.

Fileder and Keith have worked together in specifying the SPECTRUM Economic Filter Housing Systems complete with 5um SPECTRUM Spun cartridges (SSP) and SPECTRUM Carbon Block Treatment (SCB) as the best solution for both theirs and their customer’s needs.

The pre-assembled systems take the guesswork out of set-up and fitted gauges allow the users to gain at-a-glance pressure differential readings to ensure effective cartridge operation.

Established for over 35 years, Fileder Filter Systems is one of the largest independent process filtration and water treatment supplier in the UK. A wide range of filtration and water treatment products are available to order for next day delivery, including carbon blocks, pleated and depth cartridges, housings and RO systems.
