Filter upgrade to indoor champions pond

With the high cost of electricity and also to minimize the maintenance, but to increase the effectiveness of the filters, I decided to make some changes to my filter system:-


I removed all the koi and blocked the bottom drains- I left the water running in the pond with the weirs directly connected to the protein skimmer and bakki shower. I then did the foundations for the filtration system.
The finished filter- 2 bottom drains to 1 Profidrum- thank you Mark from Koi Water Products!- and the 3rd bottom drain and 2 weirs to the other drum. From the drums the water goes through 3 filter chambers of Japanese matting- up/down system. The 4th chamber is the pump chamber where 2 x 55 00 liters an hour submersables push the water up and through 2 large stainless steel bakki showers filled with Momotaro Bakki House Media and then back to the pond. In addition I have a Speck pump pushing water through a sand filter and UV light and returning through my inside bakki shower with Ogata Crystal Bio.
