Pond water filtration systems 

Elevate the ecological balance of your pond with our market leading pond filtration systems.

Why you need Pond pumps and filters

Whether you have large fish ponds full of koi carp, ornamental ponds, freshwater ponds, a marine aquarium or anything else, you need a simple pond filter system at a minimum. If you have fish living in your pond, then they must receive the right oxygenation, crystal clear water quality and a balanced environment. 

In combination with yearly maintenance, pond filtration systems help remove debris, and stop algae growth and bacteria from building up, allowing the water to be clean, clear and aesthetically appealing. Pond pumps and filters also eliminate any harmful pollutants and substances like nitrates and anomia, converting them into less toxic compounds and making it healthy for marine life to live. 

However, depending on your pond, there are so many filters to choose from, like pump fed, gravity fed, sand filters, bead filters, centrifugal filters, multi chambers, biological, mechanical, UV pressurised systems and more. 

With over 30 years in this industry, we have a strong network with many major pond filter manufacturers/suppliers in the UK and Europe. Simply call us or allow us to visit, so we can discuss the best filtration solution for your pond. 

 

Tips for Clarifiers, Filters and Pumps

As spring approaches, there’s a threat your pond might have green water. Therefore your pond’s ultra violated clarifier needs to be brought back into operation to counter the algae which caused it. Plus, efficiency drops and less UV radiation is produced as the bulb ages, requiring a yearly replacement. 

The best time to do this is in spring, as the clarification effect is most needed in the opening few months of the season when the likelihood of algae blooms is at its highest. When changing the bulb, it is a good idea to check that the quartz tube it sits in is free of deposits or lime scale – a dirty tube will also cut down the amount of UV hitting the algae.

Cleaning the bio-filter is another task for this time of year, paying particular attention to shifting any old sludge that has settled so it does not get recycled back into the pond once you turn the pump back on.

Be sure to use pond water or rainwater to wash the filter, rather than tap water, to avoid introducing chlorine and other unwanted chemicals into the system. If possible, it is often a good idea to try to time things so that you can run the filter for a week or two before the weather really
