Resources and advice for maintaining a koi pond?

Just moved into a house with a really nice koi pond. It has a waterfall, rock bridge...the works. But I have no idea how to do anything with it. I don't even seem to have the right language to search the web for detailed advice.

Really, I need a very basic but detailed walkthrough of issues. The stuff on the web I've found is very light on details. I think I'm missing the go to forums and sites. I'm sure professional assistance is available and probably warranted, but I'd like some education first. Recommendations for stores, clubs, and professionals in Fort Worth, TX would be appreciated too.
I don't even know the relevant details to provide for y'all to give me some good advice.
The previous caretaker pointed me to the several containers of "stuff" and explained a little bit about how the pump works. In the week that I've taken over, algae has started taking hold. The pond is built-up on an inclined yard. Over the years the lower end has shifted lower, cracked, has several repairs. Thus it the whole pond doesn't fill like it should because one side is lower than designed.
