This Pressurized Pond Filter with UV sterilizer is the ideal filtration system if you are looking for a multifunctional filter. It can be used in small garden ponds, barrel or container ponds and includes a large filter media chamber with reusable mechanical and biological media. The compact design can be easily concealed in your landscape or buried up to the lid. This filter has a rated flow of 10,000L/H, which gives you plenty of filtration in order to keep your aquatic pets and plants healthy. It has an 11W UV globe so it is very effective in dealing with unwanted algae.
This filter uses a multi-stage filtration system for maximum efficiency:
Stage 1 - Mechanical Filtration: The water is pumped into the filter (pump not included) to create pressure necessary to start the mechanical filtration stage. There are three foam discs which collect various sizes of organic debris which leads the growth of large numbers of beneficial microbes and bacteria which break down harmful pollutants in the water.
Stage 2 - Biological Filtration: In this stage, the water passes through the bio-balls at the bottom of the filter. These bio-balls are where the beneficial microbes and bacteria grow in order to process harmful toxins of ammonia and nitrites into useful nitrates to support a healthy pond environment.
Stage 3 - UV Clarification: This stage is where the water is clarified by eliminating microscopic suspended algae in the water. When it passes through the UV lamp, these algae are killed and this makes your water crystal clear.
It also helps to oxygenate the water leading to healthy fish and plants. The outer shell is made of high quality ABS which is strong and durable. It is waterproof and it is very well insulated.Read more
