A succesful koi pond needs to be designed and constructed with the following three principles in mind.
  1. A successful koi pond needs to provide healthy crystal clear water. So much of the enjoyment of a koi pond is being able to clearly see the beauty of the koi. A pond that is not crystal clear will rob you of this feature.
  2. A successful koi pond needs to provide a safe environment for the koi. Poorly designed koi ponds can make it easy for predators to injure or kill your koi. A properly designed koi pond should not require a net to protect the koi.
  3. A successful koi pond needs to be as easy as possible to maintain. Often times the maintenance issue is not even considered until after the pond is built. A poorly designed koi pond can be so hard to maintain that it can ruin your whole koi keeping experience. On the other hand, a well designed and built koi pond can be amazingly easy and enjoyable to maintain. You can build a 10,000 gallon koi pond that requires less than 5 minutes a week to maintain and you can do so without getting dirty.
 
The following 20 questions are designed to help you in planning and designing your new koi pond so that the finished pond will be exactly what you envisioned when you started.
