High capacity mechanical / biological flow through with multi chamber
filters for clear ponds.
Ponds can be effected
by various factors such as unconsumed fish food, decomposing vegetation and
fish waste. If these pollutants are allowed to accumulate, in time they will
become harmful to your fish. The use of a biological filter will remove
these toxins (nitrate, ammonia) and provide good quality water with the
additional benefit of reducing algae growth.
There are two types of filtration action in every bio-filter. First is mechanical filtration
At the top of each filter is a foam, these foam physically strain the water removing particles of fish
waste and debris from the water. The second type of filtration is biological, below the foam set are
bio-media called Flow cor (or Bio balls). The purpose of this media is to
allow helpful bacteria to grow on it's surface. The bacteria absorbs the
pollutants within the pond water and neutralize ammonia and nitrite deposits
then recycles the pollutants to nitrate which is a natural plant food.
Suitable for: Any pond without a waterfall or if with a waterfall has a place at the top to
hide the box
What we liked: Great value for money. It has many of the features of more expensive filters including a high outlet so
half the filter can be buried if needed.
Less than ideal: Based on the price point, not much. the features match the price. Not that rugged but
strong enough to do the job.

To choose the ideal filter for any pond you must first know the correct flow through the filter to maintain ideal water quality
for your pond. (Please remember that the pond size alone does not determine the filter or pump size without first taking into account the
many environmental and physical factors)
note, if using a waterfall or a long hose between pump and filter the pump
will need to be larger to allow for the reduced flow caused by the
head (pumping height, and/or hose length) If in doubt Fill in one of our e-mail help forms and let us do all the calculations for you.
##This pump is a little too strong, unless a waterfall over 1m is in place. However, you can never have too much pond flow, so, by
releasing water back into the pond through a "Tee" and flow valve added
circulation is provided for the pond.
