GreatWave Turns Two!

GreatWave just turned two.  Like all toddlers, our progress has been pretty slow, but we’ve sold two filters, innards for another, a number of books and some accessories, so we feel like we’re gradually getting our feet on the ground.

A good part of the first two years was spent rebuilding the pond at Koten-En, the Japanese style garden where Endless River filters are made.   The pond at Koten-En and a 600 gallon Quarantine Tank are test beds for our filters.  We’ve learned a lot from operating the filters on these ponds and as a result have been busily designing improvements to the filters.  You can check out what’s happening at the pond anytime by clicking the link to the Koten-En Pond Log at the top of the page.

In 2014 we’re starting afresh with a new improved website, and a complete new line of filters and a whole new line of filter media.  Endless River Koi Pond Filters are still based on Peter Waddington’s “Endless River” concept and share all of the attributes that have made Peter’s filters popular with a wide range of koi keepers around the World.  The easy flushing, the ability to see everything that’s going on in your filter, the economical operation.

The Endless River filter line includes four models to meet the needs of any pond.  All models are the same width and height.  They differ only in length and the number bio-conversion modules.

Each bio-conversion module is a moving bed filter and  is filled with Biohome BioMotion sintered glass media.  This small marble sized media has enormous surface area and is self cleaning as it slowly tumbles inside it’s housing.  Bacteria swiftly populate the BioMotion media without laying down the sticky biofilm that gradually plugs other media.

We’re very excited about this new development.  Keep an eye on this site as we publish the results when we bring these online at Koten-En.
