For large ponds with higher stocks of fish an efficient means of waste removal is essential.
Drum filters are a recent addition to the pond market, and filter out fine particles through an automatically cleaned steel mesh, before the water passes through biological filter media.
BubbleBead Filters (shown left), capture dirt in a floating bed of tiny plastic beads, and the dirt is simply flushed away on a regular basis by turning a valve to start cleaning. Even this process can be automated if required.
Bead filters are proven in use on koi ponds and in commercial establishments where large numbers of fish are held. We have supplied technical support for these systems since they were introduced to the UK market over a decade ago, and we maintain units on customers’ koi ponds.
For very large watergarden ponds a different approach helps deal with fine suspended sediments, floating debris and high nutrient levels. A combination of techniques can be used, including enhanced natural filtration.
Filtration solutions are as diverse as the ponds we deal with. We will always investigate each site individually before recommending the most appropriate options. We are not tied to any one brand, and choose from the best available.
