These filters successfully capture solids and debris from the pond. Studies have shown that our bead filters capture 100% of particles greater than 50 microns and 48% of particles in the 5-10 micron range per pass. In addition to solids removal, these filters provide biological filtration, breaking down the nitrogenous wastes into non-toxic substances. Our gentle backwash removes the collected solids while keeping thenecessary bio-film intact.
Beyond keeping the water clean and healthy for your fish, the filter has no internal moving parts, making it very reliable for long term use. Backwash, the cleaning of the filter media, is easily achieved by shutting off your water pump, turning a 3-way valve, and draining solids from the filter. To resume filtration, simply turn the 3-way valve back to the starting position and turn your water pump back on.
This process takes as little as two minutes, saving you time and allowing you to enjoy your fish. Cleaning a filter doesn't get any easier than this! Quit wasting time washing filthy sponge pads with a hose. Don't muck about with sand filters that need to have their media replaced yearly.
