The Bio-Active Pressure Filter works to keep your pond clean and healthy with both mechanical and biological filtration. This easy-to-use filter features a unique open profile bio-activator that provides a large surface area and unrestricted water flow to all surfaces for improved filtering. A simple back flush valve allows for fast cleaning.

Mechanical Filtration
Pond water flows down through the bio-activators which remove suspended debris and dirt from the water.

Biological Filtration
Biological Filtration occurs on the massive surface areas found in the bio-activators. Beneficial bacteria will naturally colonize on the surface area and convert harmful pollutants in the water into relatively harmless nitrates, which are absorbed by the aquatic plants and removed by partial water changes. This is known as the “Nitrogen Cycle”.

Bio-Activators
Bio-Active Pressure Filters come equipped with bio-activators which offer superior filtration and back flush performance over foam. In normal filtration operation, these bio-activators easily trap dirt and debris from your pond and because of their shape they provide a large active surface area for the beneficial bacteria to colonize for upgraded biological filtration. During the back flush operation, bio-activators provide unrestricted water flow to all the surfaces so that dirt and debris are thoroughly removed while leaving the beneficial bacteria on the bio-activator surfaces intact and robust.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Never seemed to really work much! I've had this Bio-Pressure filter 4000 for my pond and even after opening up and cleaning out all the media since backwashing only gets a portion, maintaining my UV light, replacing the tube and fixing the pressure tube that seems to collapse, it still doesn't due much. Time for a change.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Just doesn't work very well The idea that you can turn a valve and purge the filter of the dirty water sound nice, but works poorly. I have to rock the whole unit back and forth to stir the dirt off the bottom if I want to get it out. I am going back to my gravity filters.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from These don't work I won't use these. Too expensive and they don't keep my pond clean. My gravity fed bio-filter with 3 filter pad works alot better. Easier to clean too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This product lets alot through I have a filtered waterfall behind this filter. The waterfall needs cleaned daily because of what this filter lets through. When i backflush this filter, i often fill a glass with the water to inspect how much dirt is really in it. Thats the most depressing part. My little foam pads seem to catch more dirt than this expensive filter
