Setting up a koi pond involves more than just getting the right fish, digging a hole, pouring concrete, installing lining and getting pond plants. You have to keep in mind the ecology of the outdoor pond that you are creating. One of these realities that you have to be aware of is the threat of chlorine. Unless you live near a spring or other source of natural fresh water, you would have to get your water from the tap. Tap water contains chlorine and that is why it is safe to drink. Unfortunately it is not so safe for your fish. You would need to dechlorinate and treat your water before putting it in your pond.
A good dechlorination option is the Pondcare® Chlorine & Heavy Metal Neutralizer Dechlorinator from Pet Store. It can be used when setting up a pond or changing pond water. An ounce of this solution can treat 600 gallons of pond water wherein each package contains 32 ounces. This solution is a very effective cleaning agent. It takes care not only of chlorine but also copper, zinc, lead and other harmful heavy metals.
