Karobar Koi Summer News Letter 2019



Enjoy the read, give me a call, chat about koi and food stuffs, autumn is coming and we should start to think about changing to Winter Wheat Germ which is good down to about 7 degC, which is long after we stopped feeding on our favorite summer foods at around 10 deg C


First, I would like to thank you as a valued customer for your continued support over the years and trust this news letter finds your fish well and of course that you are not too bad yourself.

Evolution Aqua
The Evolution Aqua Varipump is a variable speed pump and is a piece of understated magic. It really does take the choice of pumps to the next level and at a very reasonable price. There is no need to try and guess what pump size you need. Whatever you selected before, it was either a near miss too big or too small. The Varipump sorts this out in a flash just select what speed you want and tweek to your day is long in tuning and homing your system. The pump comes in three sizes, 10,000, 20,000 and 30,000 L/Hr. The controller allows you to adjust the pump speed in 1% increments!!! HOW COOL IS THAT!!! You do however need to get into the right band though, a 10k pump will max out at 10k however a 30k pump will turn down to 10k how cool is that again!!!, But really for best capital spend getting into the right band is sensible even though the price is very competitive if you went for the 30k unit.
Please, I am not a techno brute who will discuss the merits of pump curves and efficiency, all I know is that this pump is a piece of understated magic. Don't delay buy and save that hard earnt cash and just watch this pump save you operational money.

DracoDrum
We are now selling the Dracodrum range of products, they are very cost effective and simple to operate and maintain. A larger bio chamber is available now which Draco tell us will manage a 10,000 gallon pond. I will be adding this to the web site shortly. Just need to remember drums are not industrial vacumm cleaners which will sort out a forgotten or under managed pond. They will however do a very good job of keeping your pond sparkling clear once you have gotten all the rubbish out of the pond before hand.

Delivery Charges
Delivery charge have gotten a little sticky with the shippers when it comes to glass ware and liquids and it is with regret I have to tell you that a premium of £15 will be levied on UV's and glass products and £10 on liquid products, this is in addition to the normal carriage cost. Please don't shoot the messanger I can do nothing about it. But ofcourse you can pop in and pick up these goods any time we are open, do ring first though.


Phoenix Premium
Karobar Koi delivered to the market last September 2018, a brand new floating koi food product called ‘Phoenix Premium’ which comes in 3 forms at the moment by way of ‘Staple’, ‘Growth’ and ‘Winter Wheat Germ’. The pellet sizes is classified as 5mm.

Phoenix Premium is made in the UK by a main stream pet food manufacture which quality is assured and is all important BREXIT safe. Cost too is also very important to us all and again I would like to think that Phoenix Premium is also cost safe from changes which may affect us all next spring one way or another.


A special note on cost. Phoenix Premium is very competitive not because we are offering a cut down specification, but because we are working with a main stream pet food manufacture based in the UK. I guarantee I will pass on any benefits and savings that can be delivered in the Phoenix Premium costs and delivery charges. I can be no fairer than that!


House and Home
My koi include my sturgeon have taken to Phoenix Premium like a duck to water and I am sure they will try very hard to eat me out of house and home.


Chit Chat
Check out my web site for details of Phoenix Premium which is delivered from stock and in most all cases with orders received before 12pm will be despatched the same day, 'the impossible I can do miracles take a little longer'. By all means pop-in or telephone to chat/place an order but do check out my opening times at the web site. If you telephone be ready to leave a message should I be a tad busy, I will call you back as soon as I am able.


Credit and debit cards
The shopping cart at the web site is open 24hrs daily. Please be re-assured all credit and debit cards are transacted through secure servers via WorldPay.

That’s all for now, chat when you are able.

Swag Bag Opportunity
Ah! by the way nearly forgot, give me a ring to claim your free ‘swag bag’ sample of food stuff from the Phoenix Premium Koi Foods mentioned above (01923 677734).


This offer is limited to one issue to each customer which I am sure you will understand will need to close by around the end of September 2019.

Best regards Barrie Brown Karobar Koi
