Bakki Showers

Why a Bakki Shower

Bakki showers offer superb biological filtration for your pond allowing massive aeration of the pond water as it cascades through the tiers of the shower that are filled with your chosen filtration media.

Bakki showers require a mechanical filtration stage before the water enters the shower to take out debris from the water. A drum filter or sieve filter are excellent choices.

Bakki showers can be used as your ponds sole biological filtration or can be added after other filtration systems to improve the water quality in your pond.

  • Filterco Trickle Bakki Shower

    £744.95£895.95

    The Filterco trickle tower effectively converts harmful dissolved waste such as proteins, ammonia and nitrite into harmless compounds.

    trickle showers create an oxygen rich environment in which aerobic bacteria thrive

    The water enters the Filtreco Trickle Bakki Shower at the top of the filter where it is distributed via one 63mm spray pipe.

    The water then passes through your chosen filter media and then flows freely through the perforated filter grids.

    We recommend a filter media such as Shingure Bacteria Home or Crystal Bio filter media which consist of porous, large surface areas for optimal development of beneficial bacteria. (Do the orange filter media as links to the product).

    The units are also equipped with air holes through which oxygen is easily drawn in. An optimal oxygen saturation of the water is thereby achieved. Due to the surplus of oxygen, there is hardly any lack of oxygen in the pond during the hot periods of the year.

    The water is returned to the pond via a from water chute.

    The unit is supplied complete with the spray bar and lid.

    No filter media is included.

    Available in two sizes which measure:

    • Medium – 665mm in length x 320mm in width x 942mm overall height.
      Maximum water flow 15,000 LPH or 3300 UK GPH.
    • Large – 990mm in length x 416mm in width x 1202mm overall height.
      Maximum water flow 30,000 LPH or 6600 UK GPH.
