Having been around koi since the 70's and owned koi ourselves for over 20 years, we always strived to provide the best environment possible but always with a limited budget.
Having recently swapped to a different type of filter system with superb biological properties, we were always looking for a better way to improve the mechanical side of the
unit. Drums seemed to be the way forward but all were expensive, cumbersome and overly complicated and all had to have additional space found to plumb them in.
Utilising my training and experience as an ex RAF avionics engineer, we came up with a way to "boil" a drum down to its simplest form and then build it in such a way that
it could be easily adapted to drop into any filter on the market big enough to take it, irrespective of shape or installation.
To keep costs down, the drums and all the components are built on site in our North Wales facility by ourselves and where at all possible, local suppliers are used for
materials and any off site work, such as CNC machining and label printing. This allows us to produce a drum that is not only affordable and easy to use but of excellent and
repeatable quality. This also makes all spares for the drum available at a UK level for quick turnaround, should a fault actually arise.
