For over 30 years, Santa Barbara Koi has specialized in providing top of the line pond and pool equipment and supplies to pond and pool contractors, water garden maintenance companies, and water feature retail stores. We are a fully stocked facility with both whole goods (pumps, filters, and underwater lights) and repair parts on site.
Mark and Jill, co-owners of Santa Barbara Koi, each bring over 30 years of expertise in the water garden industry to our customer service department. Whether it is a traditional Koi pond, a water garden with water lilies and a stream, a swimming pool or spa with remote control access from your cell phone, a formal fountain or a natural 100,000 gallon reservoir, we can help you with our decades of proven experience.
Water Feature Contractors have access to the Contractors' Annex area which stocks pumps, filters, heaters, underwater light fixtures, PVC pipe and fittings (up to 4"). This is the largest stocking inventory in the tri-counties and, of course, all with the best competitive pricing. The Contractor's Annex also has a complete selection of repair parts for all water feature equipment.
The general public is welcome to visit our store. We have an extensive inventory of Koi fish, Koi food, water plants, and Koi and water garden books. Advice is made available to everyone, so feel free to contact us with your questions or concerns.
Jill and Mark travel together to Japan four to five times a year, personally selecting and purchasing all of their Koi at farms in the countryside directly from the breeders. Over the years, we have developed strong relationships with these breeders and they provide us with Koi that are unmatched in quality.
All Koi are quarantined for several months at Santa Barbara Koi's own farm before coming into the store for sale. Jill and Mark have attended education courses worldwide, including the Koi Health Management Course at the University of Georgia. Santa Barbara Koi currently works closely with Dr. Scott Weber in the Veterinarian Department at the University of California at Davis. Locally, Mark & Jill work closely with Dr. Sam Dover, a family friend they met at UGA, who specializes in endoscopy of aquatic animals.
