Simplify Your Life by Retrofitting with a Pressure Filter


Pressure filters are easy to install in just about any current pond set-up, and some models (like the Oase Filtoclear) can be buried with the top concealed by a cover rock. Also, we don’t remove the existing waterfall filter. We just remove the pads and use it as a waterfall spillway. Since the customer no longer needs access, the top of the waterfall spillway can be permanently covered with landscape rocks or faux cover rocks.
There a two general types of pressure filters – biomechanical filters and bead filters. Choosing which type depends on 3 primary considerations: 1) Size of pond and fish load. For ponds over 4,000 gallons, or over 2,000 gallons with a very high fish load, you will need to go with a bead filter; 2) Is concealing the filter important? If the size of your pond allows you to use a biomechanical filter, these can be almost entirely concealed by burying the filter. Bead filters must sit on top of the ground; 3) If you use an external pump, you will need to go with a bead filter.
Oase FiltoClear – The Best Biomechanical Filters
In our opinion, the Oase FiltoClear line are the best biomechanical filters. They are very well-designed, simple to install and maintain, and all models come with an integrated UV.
Oase FiltoClear 3000 – for ponds up to 3,000 gallons with no fish, to 750 gallons with a heavy fish load.
Oase FiltoClear 4000for ponds up to 4,200 gallons with no fish, to 1,000 gallons with a heavy fish load.
Oase FiltoClear 8000 – for ponds up to 7,900 gallons with no fish, to 2,000 gallons with a heavy fish load.
Aqua Ultima II – The Best Bead Filters
The Aqua Ultima II line of bead filters starts with the Ultima II 1,000 for ponds up to 1,000 gallons, and tops off with the Aqua Ultima II 30,000 for ponds up to 30,000 gallons.
