Ideal pump partner is the:


Fish stocking & density: Up to 50cm of goldfish per 1000L of pond volume. (total measurement of the fish lengths). Fish must be added to the pond in stages to 50% over the first 6 months, which then allows for growth to maximum capacity. This is taken from common industry practice.

Pond sizing for Australian hot conditions:
Suits 13000L pond with waterplant life with NO fish.
Suits 6500L pond with waterplant life with some goldfish/natives
Suits 4300L pond with some Koi Carp.


  • The barrel containing the foams & bio-media balls is a pond sewage treatment plant which requires clear potentially toxic water to function. The less you open it the more beneficial bacteria growth will result.
  • The system must NEVER be used as a vacuum cleaner to clear debris or cloudy water. This management method makes the smothered biological activity non-effective.
  • The UVC lamp to be effective must be replaced between 9 - 12 months as it loses strength. Shaded ponds with waterplants often do not require the lamp, but an unsuspecting increase in nitrogen levels and a hot day can cause an instant algae bloom. A functioning lamp will keep this under control.

Aqua Nova  External Pond UV Bio-Filter - NPF10, NPF20 & NPF30 use low cost industry standard PL-S TUV lamps. We keep the full range of these UV lamps as spare parts.

Filter foam maintenance. The filter/UVC unit must work dirty to preserve the bacteria. If foams are blocked, remove & wash only in a bucket of non-chlorinated water (e.g. pond water). The foams will often shrink but as long as they are porous the system will remain efficient.
