How to Fit the Heater.

It is important that you follow the simple drawings that you will be supplied with when you are fitting your Elecro Heater into your system.

The reason for this is to ensure that the body of the actual heater is always full of water - thus preventing half the heating element to be out of water which would, of course, cause the element to overheat and burn out .. 

You can either choose to use 90 degree bends or 45 degree bends which are a little gentler with the interrupted flow..

 .. this then means that for water to even trickle out of the upper section of the pipework return to your pond ... that there will always be water in the heater and covering all of the element ....and if possible the Heater should be placed before the Ultra Violet Clarifier as this then prevents and single cell algae that has been 'zapped' by the UV rays from collecting on the 'Flow Switch' contained within the body of your new heater unit .. which is of course one of the built in safety trips in your heater ..

If you are still unsure - or need any further advice .. then please do not hesitate to either telephone or email me and I will do my best to help you out ...

The drawing below is for a 'Gravity Fed' system where the 'clean water' is being returned to the pond after passing through the filtration system..

If you have a 'Pump Fed' system, where the water is being pumped to the filter from the bottom of the pond then you should contact The East Riding Koi Co for further advice on fitting a heater, before you buy one .. please either telephone on 01377 24 00 32 or email on <info@koicarp.net>
