Recent advances in biological bead filtration have made it possible
for the average pond owner to maintain clear, healthy water year round. These low
maintenance systems have brought the fun back into owning a pond by eliminating the need
for awkward sponge and other submersible filters that are difficult to
clean. Find out why so many pond owners
are installing and recommending bead filters for their backyard
ponds! To view some before and after examples, click
filters are filled with thousand of small poly-beads which provide a
much greater surface area for beneficial bacteria to grow than
traditional filters. These beneficial bacteria are essential for
breaking down the toxins that are created by fish waste and decaying
organic matter in the pond. A healthy pond environment, and the
health of its inhabitants, are directly related to water quality and
making sure that these toxic compounds are not allowed to build up.
other great advantage of bead filters are their ability to clear the
water much more efficiently that traditional pond filters. By
design, they trap particulate matter that would ordinarily pass
through a filter, and then expel this waste during regular backwashing
cycles. Backwashing cycles vary, depending on filter model, but
generally are very easy and efficient. Read
