Spring Fed Pond and Koi

I have a natural pond that is fed by a natural spring. The water runs into the pond at one end and exits at the other end. Do I need a filter? The pond is about 20 ft in diameter and about 2.5 ft. deep. I inherited this pond when I purchased the house. I need advise on how to maintain it and the Koi that are in the pond. The property sat empty for about a year and a half. - Masaie

Since the pond is spring fed, you probably don't need a filter system. The water is being constantly changed. This is also known as a flow-through system. For more information on Koi keeping, refer the the Koi keeping articles.
