Our Story

My son Jeff and I established Sacramento Koi in May of 2000 based on our love for koi and the challenge we perceived in creating the perfect koi pond. Early on we became convinced that the future of koi pond filtration was in bead filter technology. We soon developed the Advantage Bead Filter. We then thoroughly tested the filter before offering it for sale and found the results to be very impressive. After developing the Advantage Filter it became obvious that no filter could overcome a poorly designed pond. That is when we took on the challenge of trying to develop the perfect koi pond design.

As Sacramento Koi grew as a company, we opened up a pond building division to test our ideas and products. Building ponds turned out to be a wonderful move. It became a real learning experience as to what actually worked in the real world, and what didn’t work. We were able to thoroughly test new products and designs as they became available before recommending them to our customers. When we couldn’t find a product on the market that suited our needs, we would develop one that did. Thus began the Advantage Product line.
