Bakki Shower Filters for Koi Fish Ponds 

Bakki Shower Filters for Koi Fish Ponds are also commonly known as Trickle Filter. It is a modular trickle filter that is easy to install and can also be fitted in as an additional biological filter.

The trickle filter mimics nature’s method of filtering water. Like that of a mountain stream with water cascading over rocks. Biofilms and algae grow on the rocks and consume the nutrients in the stream, effectively filtering the water.

In the case of the Bakki shower, porous media is placed in trays, and water is pumped to the top of the filter, where it trickles through the media before returning to the pond.

Bakki shower filters are often used in koi fish ponds and aquaculture ponds due to their high biological capability, and quick set-up start-up. The most important property is its extensive capability for increasing dissolved oxygen levels in the pond water.

Bakki Shower Filter operating principle:

A shower filter is a modular system with simple operating principles. Each module is arranged on top of one another. Spray the water down in the topmost chamber and then distribute it across a perforated medium. This produces a shower effect as the water splashes down through the high porous media.

This process causes the water to split up and absorb a huge amount of oxygen. Also, the nutrients are absorbed by the media. The water then moves through the perforated floor of the filter into the next chamber below.

Since these chambers lack media, the water always has sufficient drop height to redistribute itself and split up after each compartment. Clean oxygen-saturated water creates an ideal breeding ground for beneficial bacteria which grow in the media.

This is why a bakki shower filter system can start up faster than other types of biological filters such as bio chamber or Oc 1 filters. These highlights make bakki showers a favourite choice among koi pond owners and aquaculturists.

Qualities Of Bakki Shower Filter:

Bakki Shower Filters for Koi Fish Ponds
  • Easy to introduce and integrate into existing systems.
  • Zero moving parts.
  • Degases and Oxygenates the koi pond water.
  • Capable of handling high flow rates of 50-100 m3/hr.
  • You only need a small area to set up and run it.
  • Modular construction is therefore easy to expand.
  • Installation and upkeep are simple.
  • Pump variant.
  • Stainless steel of superior quality.
  • It is possible to use a combination of efficient filter media.

You can easily convert it into a stand-alone filter for small ponds by adding bio sponges or jap mats to the top chamber. As a modular system, you can quickly add or modify it to meet the ever-increasing demands of the pond.

As you know, the end product of a biofiltration process is nitrate. And the outcome of balancing the pH of the pond water is carbon dioxide! If these toxic gases accumulate in pond water, they can adversely affect the habitat of your pond. In short, you can get rid of the toxin by eliminating the gases.

Inside the showers, trickle filters produce multiple water clusters that deodorize the water while allowing toxic gases to escape.

This reduces the load on the biomass and makes the systems significantly less KH-consuming than conventional filtration systems. The media’s high porosity also aids in the rapid colonization of beneficial bacteria.

Its properties include resistance to damage from pump failures or chemicals and is remarkably quick at ‘bouncing’ back after pond treatment. The water produced by the above method is such that the Koi strongly favour swimming in the areas where the filtered water enters the pond.

We keep our trickle prices to a bare minimum due to the high cost of filter media, ensuring excellent overall value for money. The names of some recommended media for use with Bakki shower or Trickkel filters are listed below.

BIO Media

You can use Crystal Bio, white pumice stone or Volcanic rock, bio home maxi ultimate, bacteria house, ceramic media, oyster shells, lava rocks, bio-balls, and ceramic rings as media.

Manufacturers typically make Bakki Showers from 316 food-grade stainless steel. But upon customer request, we can also build the same with SS 304 or powder-coated GI Sheets to reduce the production cost.

However, the best system suitable for our geographic location is using stainless steel models. Which will last for decades considering our climatic conditions.

Designers never complete the pond filter design. There’s always something that you could do to make things PERFECT!
