AQUABIOME SM500 SKID PACK
Aquabiome is designed for ponds and water gardens. It provides mechanical and biological filtration in a single housing. Its ability to support dense populations of nitrifying bacteria and its reliability and easy maintenance, makes Aquabiome especially suitable for high density recirculation systems.
Hydraulically efficient filter design, balanced slotted laterals to maximize water flow and filtration. Corrosion resistant and UV stabilised for outdoor installation.Air assisted hydraulic backwash, saving time and water. Aquabiome fibreglass filters embody the latest in fibreglass winding technology.
Aquabiome is designed for koi ponds and water gardens. It provides mechanical and biological filtration in a single housing. The filter ability to support dense populations of nitrifying bacteria and its reliability and easy maintenance, makes Aquabiome especially suitable for high density re-circulation systems.
The Benefits Of Using An Aquabiome Filter
The principal of using an Aquabiome filter is to combine the Biological filtration aspect with the mechanical filtration (water polishing). By combining these two filtration aspects (mechanical & Biological), using an Aquabiome filter, the whole system can be more compact than a traditional - conventional pond filter system. Or, the Aquabiome can also be used to enhance an existing system. In addition, the Aquabiome filter requires far less pressure than a conventional Hi Rate sand filter, therefore the type of pump needed will require far less power. Possibly reducing power use by 50%! Perhaps most important of all, an Aquabiome filter will require far less maintenance – cleaning or back washing than a typical Hi Rate pressure sand filter. This will mean you could save a considerable amount of wasted water and time, whilst keeping your pond in ‘tip top condition.
How Does The Aquabiome Filter Work?
The Aquabiome should be installed after your Sieve or main biological filter system. A suitably sized pump must be selected to ensure the correct water flow is delivered to the Aquabiome filter. Once installed, the Aquabiome will remove suspended solids down to 10 microns in size, maintaining your water clarity to a very high standard.
The pumped water is fed to the Multi-port valve and diverted to the lower filter inlet. The inflowing water is evenly dispersed through the special slotted pipes (Laterals) within the lower section of the filter. The contaminated water flows upwards through the filter vessel depositing waste matter between the crevices of the Biomedia.
To assist the growth of Bacteria for removal of the Ammonia present in the contaminated inflowing water, you will need to charge the system with: ‘Filter Start’. Once added to the inflowing water, good bacteria will begin to colonise on the filter media enhancing the biological action.
Aquabiome is designed to reduce the amount of maintenance (and waste water) required and ideally if the equipment has been correctly sized, back-washing will only be required on a weekly basis. The backwashing process is assisted by the use of a very powerful blower (air compressor) and the whole procedure will take less than 5 minutes to perform.
Aquabiome is designed to ensure servicing simplicity. The main filter body has a large 8” diameter lid for easy access to the internals of the filter. Both the top collector assembly and laterals can be easily unscrewed and removed for cleaning.
