Aquabead Pond Filter:

  • Now come with 2 HP Media Agitators and large 2" sight glasses.  The tanks on the Aquabead filters will be black specialty tanks that have a large 10" clear lid (the largest of any filter of this type.)  We will supply black tanks/10" lids if stock availability allows for this.  Gray tanks with 8" clear lids will be issued if necessary to fill in with until the black tanks are again available.

    This is the filter that revolutionized the bead filter world. Meet the AquaBead Filter. The Industry standard for Bead Filters.

    All of the AquaBead filters utilize the AquaSwirl Internal Vortex spinning design that spins heavier solids to the center of the bottom of the vessel. Why do we want to spin the solids to the center of the vessel? Our goal is to have a filter that doesn't load up with solids. When a filter "loads up" it ceases to perform at its peak. Our goal then is to spin the heavier solids to the center where a calm area exists.

    The solids wait there until the operator opens the AquaBead Sludge Drain Valve. This is opened with the pump running, which causes the solids to be purged out to waste under pressure from the pump. This unique feature of the AquaBead enables it be an extremely efficient filter, because an efficient filter doesn't hold solids, it gets rid of them. Opening the valve for just a few seconds is all that is needed. The specially chosen union ball valve is designed so that in a few years should the ball valve seize up, it can easily be removed and cleaned or just replace the worn parts. No need to get out the hacksaw and start cutting with the AquaBead. We have designed it to provide customer satisfaction not only when new, but down the road when servicing is needed.

    Bead filters are close to perfect, some more than others, but one problem no one has addressed until now is, how to keep the bacteria alive in the filter in case you need to do a medical bypass or in case your pump should fail you. The AquaBead conquers this dilemma with the AquaBead Life Support System. This life support system known as "ALISS" will keep the bacteria alive indefinitely. On the front of the multiport valve is a special one way valve that will allow air in, but keep water from seeping out. With the water pump shut down, just slip an airline from your koi pond air pump onto the barbed fitting on the front of the Multiport valve and life giving oxygen is pumped into the tank for the bacteria to survive, while the beads are gently being tumbled within the filter to make sure all of the bacteria get a "breath of fresh air". This eliminates the need to have to "cycle" the filter again. Another AquaBead 1st.

    Another item that shows long range customer satisfaction commitment is the Clear Union Spring Check Valve located right under the blower. If you will notice the spring check valve is a large 2" unit for maximum flow and has unions built into the valve. Why is this special? If you should ever have to replace the spring check valve, it is no big deal. Just unscrew the top and bottom of the valve, remove the valve body, replace with a new body and re-hand tighten the two unions. Total time- maybe 2 minutes. No frustration with getting out the hacksaw again. One more example of our commitment to provide you with a long lasting frustration free unit, not just the short term, but the long term as well.

    The AquaBead Bead Agitator is a dynamo powerhouse of air output. What does it do? During normal running of the filter the beneficial bacteria causes the beads to be sticky (that's good). In the normal running of the filter algae and other solids combine with the sticky beads to try and form a "glue" that glues the beads together. At the same time the algae and other solids combine and grow larger as time goes by. To properly get them out of the filter when it is backwashed, we need to break this bead "pac" apart and pulverize the solids to a small size again so we can backwash them out of the filter. That's the job of the AquaBead Bead Agitator. When you kick this 1.5 HP powerhouse into action, humongous amounts of air (over 100 cu.ft. per min.) are injected at the bottom of the filter where the air then rises and as it does "breaks apart the bead pack", thus allowing for a good back wash to be engaged at this point. What goes on inside is a violent rushing of air into the vessel breaking apart the bead pack, but not so hard as to disrupt the beneficial bacteria growing on the beads.   CLICK HERE FOR BACKWASHING VIDEO

    The AquaBead filters were designed to be the most energy efficient filters on the market. How? Inside is more than double the lateral surface area, where the upper beads gather around the slots in the lateral arms, than that used on any other filter. Couple this with the highest flow multiport valve on the market and you have a filter that was designed to be energy efficient. By implementing these design characteristics the filter can save the end user hundreds of dollars a year in energy costs. A smaller more energy efficient pump can be used to handle ponds that would normally have to have larger energy "hog" pumps to turn the pond over at the suggested rates. Why do we care, we're not paying the electric bill? We are committed to doing our part to conserve our natural resources. In our operation we recycle everything we can to hold down costs and do our part for the environment.

    One of the things about the AquaBead that you are sure to love is the fact that, if you should ever need to gain access to the internals of the filter, it's no big deal. The filter comes with a special wrench that fits over the top cap and allows you to unscrew the cap and gain access. Did you notice I did not say to "unhook your plumbing"? With some bead filters who use top mount valves it is necessary to unhook the plumbing to get inside. Not fun. We knew you wouldn't like this, so we didn't use a top mount design.

    Let's take a look at the body of the filter. It is made of fiberglass. It costs us more than plastic and is better than plastic. We only wanted to use the best. It is rated at 50 psi.

    What about the Guarantee? Limited LifeTime with a few minor exclusions. That's right, not 10 years prorated or non-prorated. Limited LifeTime. Check out the Warranty Page. Take the time to compare and you'll choose AquaBead.

    High efficiency due to increased lateral flow surface area within the filter. This allows the use of smaller pumps to do the same pond turnover that normally would require a higher wattage or amperage pump to do the same job. (The energy savings with this filter would be significant. This filter was designed to provide the end consumer with the most economical filter to operate with the least amount of frustration.)

  • Higher flow Multiport valve, the least restrictive on the market. With 2" thread ports on all models, you are assured of maximum flow with this valve.

  • With the built in Vortex design all heavy solids are gently spun to the center of the filter where they sit waiting for the AquaBead Purge valve to be opened. By opening this valve with the filter under pressure the accumulated heavy solids are purged out to waste in only a few seconds.

  • The AquaBead Life Support System is the industry 1st. With the built in AquaBead Life Support System you can use your koi pond air pump to supply much needed oxygen to the bead filter during medical treatment bypass or times of pump failure, etc.

  • Comes standard with the Aquabead Bead Agitator System. Standard equipment on all models is the Agitator to break up the bead pack to give an efficient backwash to the filter which means the bead filter will go longer between back washings.

  • The AquaBead Pressure Gauge gives true readings of tank pressure unlike some that give false readings due to their mounting position on the filter.

  • A large union spring check valve is used that not only enables huge amount of flow from the Agitator to the beads, it is also easy to change the body of the valve in case of failure. With the double union design the body can be changed in second using no tools. Just unscrew the unions, replace the body, and you're done.

  • With rebuildable union ball valve being used on the purge drain, you never have to cut off a failed ball valve. Disassembles in second to clean or rebuild.

  • The AquaBead filter carries a lifetime warranty (see bottom of page). This means that if at anytime you own the filter, the filter vessel fails, then you get a new filter at no cost.

  • Easy Access.  Should you need access to the internals of this filter, simply remove the top dome and you're in. No need to remove any plumbing with the AquaBead filter.

    The problem: Pond is 20 to 25 thousand gallons. You want to turn it over about every 2 hours. A 1/4 hp pump will put out about 5000 gallons an hour. This means you need two filter systems to accomplish this and stay with energy efficient pumps or a giant pool pump moving 10,000 gallons an hour and costing you an arm and a leg in energy costs.

    The Solution: AquaBeadX2

    With this filter you can run two 1/4 hp or two 1/3 hp pumps and only pull about 5 amps total with the 1/4 hp pumps or 7.6 amps total with the two 1/3 hp pumps.

    The AquaBeadX2 is designed in such a way that all valves and internals of the filter are double that of a regular filter. At no time does each pumps water pathway get smaller than a 2" opening. Every thing is double on this filter so that we maximize the flow potential of each pump. Everything is double on this filter except the price, you'll spend less money on 1 AquaBeadX2 than installing 2 individual filters.

    The AquaBeadX2 is designed with the same integrity as the AquaBead and AlphaONE filters. Designed to maximize the flow and efficiency of today's modern koi pond pumps.

    "I'm in Tucson Arizona and I bought a Medusa Aquabead Filter from you guys and I have to tell you we've got that thing hooked up and it's cleared the pond in 24 hours.

    I am ASTOUNDED at how beautiful this thing is, it works perfectly, the pumps are UNBELIEVABLY QUIET, it takes up less space than my vortex cones that I had before and I'm EXTREMELY happy with this system.

    I just wanted you to know. You probably don't get too many calls of praise, most people complain, but I have nothing but praise about this system. I'm TOTALLY AMAZED and I just wanted to thank you guys..."
