So it is important that they get good clean water and that you get a good filter for your Koi.
The main advantage of a good pond filter is that it will get rid of and filter out all the bad chemicals, waste or anything that may harm your Koi or other life from the pond.

It may interest you to know that there are two types of filters.
The first type is the sort that sucks up all of the bad particles and stores them up into a storage department so the owner can then come and clean it out.
The 2nd filter method which is good is to put pond cleaner in the pond, this is not harmful in any way to your fish and will help clean out all of the bacteria, algae and particles that will fester up the pond if you don't get rid of them.
When it comes to choosing the size of the filter you need I am sure you know that large ponds will need a larger filter than a smaller pond.
Most people won't need a large filter and a normal sized one will do.
