Product Details

These units create crystal clear water.

At Practical Aquaponics, we use one of these to keep our display aquarium water crystal clear even though the aquarium is outdoors.  (not connected to an aquaponics system)


  • 2 year warranty
  • 3-stage filtration makes green water clean
  • Internal double-action biological sponges
  • Low maintenance backwash rinsing system
  • Can be used in-line for waterfalls and water features
  • Can be buried up to the lid

In normal operation, the water enters the filter and is forced around the permieter, creating a vortex where larger particles settle out.  The smaller particles are caught in sponge filters which encourage the colonisation of Nitrosomonas and Nitrobactor bacteria, promoting maximum biological purification of the water.

After the physical and biological filtration actions, the water is then cleaned by the ultraviolet lamp, which inhibits algae growth.  The thoroughly-cleaned water then returns to the pond.
