Despite popular belief bottom drains are not just for pools, the growing popularity within the pond industry is leading to new standards for koi gardens and water garden pond installation. The pond maintenance requirements are drastically reduced along with koi health benefits being improved. Bottom drains are not only efficient but can add aeration so the yearly spring pond cleanout practices are less needed. Most contractors are accustomed to this spring time practice and dedicate a lot of money and effort with little time for spring start-up projects. The ability to up-sell on a gravity flow bottom drain along with a pre-filter and an external pump allows landscape contractors to improve profit margins with add-on sales.
