Product Evaluation and testing ...........Pond Filters........Please see below.
We at COASTAL KOI consider product evaluation very important within our overall sales strategy, with a policy of only offering for sale items that we consider suitable for the purpose and to the best of our ability correctly described.
By carrying out our own in house evaluations on most products we sell and operating high percentage quality control checks, we can meet the needs of our customers.
When dealing with Top quality products by leading manufacturers : The names Aquamax Sequence Nexus Etc. spring to mind the need for quality checks is not quite so important as some of the lesser well known budget priced imported items.
Please find below the results of some of our findings:- Recent Trials and in use Evaluations 1*2*3*4*5* Higher the star rating the better.
The choice the filter system to use in any particular set up is always going to be difficult decision to make.
The choice of which filter system to install is more often than not dictated by overall cost. Below we will try to evaluate our own findings based on the filters we have either installed, experimented with or use ourselves.
By the time you account for the filter itself the prefilter required the pump which has to be a fairly powerful one, and then add in higher running costs (Electricity) It is never going to be the cheapest system.
But it must rate (in our oppinion) as one of the best. Beads will always polish water better than a multibay type. We have used one of these with an Ultra-seive as a pre filter on a large stock pond for many years,and have found it to be an Excellent piece of kit
The story so far The one thing certain at the moment is that the Coastal filter will be able to hold it's own against the best of the rest and at a keener price. Further updates will appear below:-
