Description

Mechanical, biological and UV clarifiers are the main types of filtration media available on the market. Here’s what they all are. Mechanical filters

You know when it’s time to clean the filters as there’s a float mechanism that raises up when the filters are dirty. And the cleaning task is easy as you just turn a handle on the top of the box. This lets water in to rinse the sponges inside; you don’t have to open the box to do the cleaning. However, some online reviewers report that this cleaning operation has been hit or miss for them. The dirty water from this process exits the filter via a separate outlet to the clean water. Pros Once the water is through the first foam, depending on the model you have bought (In the below picture I am showing the EasyClear 6000) there will be stones. The primary purpose of these is to act as a buoyancy aid for the unit, but they will also add surface area in which bacteria will cultivate. As well as this, the stones have the added benefit of trapping any solids. So it really is up to you if you want to rinse them out while cleaning the system. Two gauges are in the lid of the filter box. One tells you the temperature with the box and the other is an indicator that the filters are dirty and need cleaning or changing so this is a nice feature that not all filters have. There’s also a viewing window so you can see that the UVC light is working properly. If you already have a pond filtration system set up, you can buy the AllPondSolutions Small Fish Pond Filter Box with just the filter box here. Pros One thing that sets this Blagdon series of filters apart is that each model in the range had six stages of filtration. The UV clarifier light (as shown in the picture below) kills green algae, the spray bar oxygenates the water, graded foam traps debris and waste, the Pro bio media creates healthy water, the polymer wool polishes the water andlastly, the chemical foam reduces chemical pollutants. All six filters work one after the other in sequence to produce the cleanest water at the outlet.The pump has a 2,300L flow rate and you know that it works perfectly with the other two pond cleaning appliances. The UV clarifier is a must and this one comes with a 9W bulb. All three pond cleaning units are designed for small ponds, that’s those up to 6,000L with no fish but the unit will be suitable for smaller ponds with fish. ( See the Buyer’s Guide for an explanation of how this volume changes with fish or sun).

As a pressurised pond filter, this AllPond Solutions model can handle more water than more conventional gravity-fed filters. It sits on the side of your pond where the filters work alongside the UV steriliser/clarifier to clean your pond water. The key to successful biological filtering is to allow the beneficial bacteria to grow upon the bio-balls or K2 media that’s in your filter. You need as many of these good bacteria as possible so look for filters that have a large surface area of biological filter media for the bacteria to grow on. This 12000 Minipod is suitable for ponds up to 12,000L so it’s quite large, but for me, bigger is better as it just means less cleaning. But bear in mind that this is for a pond that’s over 75cm deep, has no fish, and is in shade. Adding fish or having a shallower pond reduces the volume of water this filter can handle. (See the Buyer’s Guide for more details about these relationships.) The filter box has both mechanical and biological filters in it. The mechanical filters are Japanese matting and has both coarse and fine grade filters, while the biological filter is bio balls. It is all pretty standard stuff but good enough to get your water filtered and clean. Within minutes of your application being approved, you will be presented with the options to either e-sign or print and return your finance agreement.

The filter sieves out solids that make the water cloudy and makes the water healthy for fish and plants. And speaking of cleaning, you can do this automatically which is what I like about a lot of these canister filters. That’s the Powerclenz part of this Fish Mate filter’s name. Just turn a knob on the top of the filter canister from Run to Clean and it runs water through the foam filters to clean them. I especially like that there’s a separate outlet pipe for the sludge generated by this action so that you don’t have to disconnect the water outlet pipe to empty the dirty water. Personally, I would direct this onto flowerbeds or collect it if you have raised beds as it’s great for the soil. Pros

The hinged lid on the filter box makes it easy to open to clean the filters, this is something I have found to be not that simple with some filters I have used in the past. I like the safety feature of the micro switch that turns off the UV light if the lid is opened or removed, even if the power is still on. This prevents anyone from looking directly into the UV light and harming their eyes.Measuring at 310 x 280 x 313 millimeters, the compact dimensions of this water pump make it suitable for different installation spaces. The weight of 3800 grams adds to its portability and convenience.
