Jet's for your pond.

Eductor Jets

The Eductor type jet works like a venturi except instead of injecting air into the water it greatly increases the amount water traveling through it. For every one gallon of water pumped through the Eductor, it gathers four more from the pond thus moving a total of five gallons. The Eductor is the most efficient jet we have tested by far. Koi like to swim into the current created by the jets so the end of each Eductor is rounded and smoothed to prevent the koi from being injured.

Mazzei Jets

The Mazzei type jet is the second most efficient jet we have tested. It produces approximately 80% of the flow the Eductor does but is much smaller in size.For this reason, the two smaller pond systems we offer (1,500 and 3,000) come standard with the Mazzei type jets, while the three larger systems (6,000,10,000 and 15,000) include the Eductor Type.


Reducers These reducers are used to reduce the outlet of the jet line into the pond, which should be 1 1/2 inch pipe, to 3/4 inch female thread. This will now allow an Eductor or Mazzi jet to be screwed into it. The standard 1 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch reducer bushing can be found at some hardware stores and is for use with a 1 1/2 inch bulkhead with threads on liner ponds. The Special Reducer is designed for gunite or concrete ponds where the 1 1/2 inch pipe for the jets extend into the pond. The pipe is cut off flush with the plaster and then the Special Reducer is tapped into the inside of the 1 1/2 inch pipe. These Special Reducer fittings are only available from Sacramento Koi.

Bulkhead Fittings

Bulkhead fittings are used anytime it is necessary for a pipe to pass through a rubber liner. They are relatively simple to install and when installed properly are very reliable. Bulkhead fittings should be plumbed into the pond wall so that the face of the fitting is flush with the side of the pond.
