Waterfalls help circulate and oxygenate the pond’s water, but a filtration system is still needed for water quality and clarity.
There are several types of filtration available in our smartpond line.
Pre-filters collect debris from the water and prevent it from entering the pump. They protect the pump, thereby leading to a longer pump life and better performance.
Mechanical filters work with a pump to move the water and catch large and small pieces of debris. All of our smartpond products include a form of mechanical filtration by way of the filter pads within the product. The filter pads catch debris from the water as it passes through the filter.
Biological filters use beneficial bacteria to naturally break down organic decaying material. Our filters all include Bio-Balls, which provide more surface space to promote the growth of beneficial bacteria.
Pressurized filters combine the power of mechanical and biological filtration. The pressure in these filters is forced through the filter by way of the pump, not giving debris a chance to settle in your pond.
Ultraviolet (UV) Light Technology ensures water clarity and a healthy pond environment for plants and fish. Water is pumped through a carefully calibrated UV chamber at just the right speed to provide maximum exposure. The UV light helps clean the green out of the water. The results are a crystal clear and healthy pond you can enjoy all year round.
We recommend these smartpond filters, for use with an additional pond pump:
Pump Filter Box or UV Pond Clarifier for ponds up to 200 gallons.
Pump Filter Box, UV Pond Clarifier or Pond Filter for ponds up to 500 gallons.
UV Pond Clarifier, or Pond Filter for ponds up to 800 gallons.
Multiple Pond Filters can be connected for larger pond or ponds with fish needing extra filtration.
Looking for an all in one, additional filtration system for your pond? Consider the Filter Kit with Pump. Ideal for ponds up to 500 gallons or as an add-on filtration option in a larger pond, it includes the filter box, filter pads, bio-balls, pond pump, and nozzle kit.
