Very high quality unit. I was looking for something that would last a long time and won't be too expensive. These were cheaper then other SS waterfalls, but are very well built.

I have had this meter for 2 years. I got it because I wanted to add salt to the pond to figure out how much water I had. But I use it all the time because I like to do salt dips on the koi. It has always been a good reliable meter.

I was using the Master test kit made by the same company, but when it got old I upgraded to this set. Same reagents, but more tests and better info. Worth the extra money for the upgrade.

I had a problem with the neighbors cat coming over and taking my goldfish. This has worked well and definitely kept the little bugger away. Be careful, it will get you wet too!

This makes a beautiful fountain. Be careful though, it can drift to the side and spray water out of the pond. I had to anchor it down and tie to the sides of the pond to keep it in place. The spray holes can get clogged up over time, but they clean easily.

I had a really bad aphid problem and they were killing my plants. I was worried about using a product near my pond, but this caused no problems with the pond or the koi.

I put two of these in my pond at 5 feet deep. They are a bit light weight, but have not had any problems. The lids can get knocked off, so you really have to fill full with gravel to keep them weighted down, otherwise larger fish will knock the dome off the base.

I didn't install a UV on my pond when i built it. A year later I decided I wanted one. This was a quick easy way and I didn't have to cut my plumbing.

A very high quality filter. After talking with Gary at GC Tek a few years ago, I determined this was the filter for me. I have been very happy with my purchase over the years. Its a very well made unit that does an excellent job keeping my pond clean and clear!

I have one of these powering a little UV spitter, this clogs easily if left directly in the pond and I need to clean it at least once or twice a week. I had to rig my own prefilter to keep this from happening. Ever since I did that it has been fine.

I have been very happy with this pump. Very quiet and low watts. Handles 4 to 5 feet of head without a problem, but I haven't tried it higher then that. Very reasonably priced as well.

Don't buy this silly stuff. You can get 40 lbs of 99.5% PURE salt from Lowes for $6. its the exact same thing as this. They just put it in a fancy jar and charge you 10x the amount because it say pond on the jar.

I use this every time I do a major water change or set up my QT. Its very effective and treats more per gallon the Ultimate and costs less, yet it does the job every bit as well.

This is one of those products that its really hard to be sure its even doing anything. But I keep using it because my water is great, crystal clear with perfect test results. So I figure if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Light weight and easy to clean, but they don't give the most surface area for cu ft of media. There are other out there that will give more. But this is also very reasonably priced so its a good choice if you are on a budget.

This air pump has been reliable, but its not all that great for deep water situations. Just doesn't seem to have the power to really get a lot of air below 5 feet of depth. But I use it in my fluid bed filter and it keeps up just fine.

It's a good quality net, but I do wish it wasn't so deep. The depth makes it easier for the fish to jump out while you are catching them. It flows through the water nicely and is a good soft material that doesn't damage the fins of scales.

I have been very happy with this food over the years. I will feed it for a couple weeks at least twice a year just to keep everybody healthy and I also use it if there is ever a problem, which hasn't happened in awhile, but over the years issues have come up.

I picked up a bag of this at a koi show awhile back. The ingredients are very good, the food is fresh and very little waste was produced. Only fed the koi the one bag, so can't say on long term growth or development. But it seemed like a very good food.

I have been using MedZyme in my koi pond every week for over a year now. I had a few infections last Spring so I started using this while they were being treated. The infections healed very quickly and I have not had a single bacterial infection since.

Went out of the country for several weeks. This worked very well. I do wish it was easier to regulate the amount of food that dispenses per feeding, it seems how full the unit it has a big impact on how much food come out. But it was reliable and the fish got fed every day, so I am happy.
