Pressure Filters

Pressurised Pond Filters

Pressurised filters are available in more than one style and some manufactures name their particular filter model a canister filter.

Although there are a few variations and names the overall principle remains the same.

The filter is a vessel with an inlet, outlet and a waste outlet. The vessel is filled with a filter media and water is pumped into the unit. The water then passes through the media and out of the outlet and the water is then returned to the pond mechanically ad biologically cleaned.

Pressurised filters are designed to be pump fed and can be installed below the water level of the pond offering great installation flexibility.

Overall Pressure filter systems offer excellent mechanical and biological filtration. They offer clean, hassle free maintenance and a wide choice of installation options making them the ideal pond filter for many.

  • Aqua Forte Ultrabead Filter

    £1,194.95£2,194.95

    Aqua Forte professional pond products logo

    UltraBead filters are pressure vessels filled with millions of small plastic beads. These beads float and provide a means of mechanical filtration and the enormous surface of these beads provides the biological filtration.

    How Do UltraBead Bead Filters Works

    Water is pumped in to the vessel under pressure from the pump via the included multipart valve.

    As the water enters the UltraBead its specially designed shape causes the water to spin separating the heavier solids and forcing them to the centre of the vessel. The solids then collect in the centre of the UltraBead filter until a maintenance clean is performed.

    Maintenance is very quick clean process. All you have to do is open the swirl separation valve with the pump running and the filter in it’s normal filtration mode and the heavier solids are evacuated in just a couple of seconds.

    Once a rinse and backwash has been carried out and the filter is once again ready to use the water is in the UltraBead filter it is forced slowly upward in the vessel through the filter media consisting of thousands of plastic beads and returned to the pond.

    The beads are host for billions of nitrifying bacteria that will consume vast amounts of ammonia and nitrites performing what is known as nitrification.

    UltraBead Filters are suppled complete with UltraTrust Blower.
    The blower is mounted on a special air check valve which prevents water from entering the blower. unit and breaking it. When the blower is active during a clean the forced air breaks up the beads and releases the trapped particles. The debris is then rinsed and backwashed to waste.

    UltraBead Mechanical filtration is performed by thousands of plastic beads. The beds float in the closed vessel. As the water enters the vessel the pressure is increased through the force of the water pump compacting the beads very tightly. The water flows from the bottom upwards through the densely compacted beads removing event the smallest of waste particles. The longer the filter is active, the more bio film there will be around the beads and therefore smaller particles can be filtered.

    UltraBead Filters Biological filtration is performed by the huge surface area of the beads. The surface area is about 1600m2 per m3 which is about 6 times more than Japanese matting.

    • UltraBead filters are supplied as standard with a 2” multi-port valve, a transparent access lid and a powerful blower.
    • UltraBead filters are supplied as standard with a vessel constructed from high quality fibreglass.
    • UltraBead Bead filters are offered with a 5 years warranty on the pipe and fitting system and a warranty period of 10 years on the fibreglass vessel and beads.

  • AquaForte Low Pressure By Pass Kit

    £79.95£99.95

    The addition of the additional bypass kit enable the use of lower wattage water pumps.

    Available for both the UltraBead filter and the EconoBead filter.

    The By-pass kit does exactly that.It by-passes the muti-port valve when it is not required making the water flow much more efficient. When the multi-port valve is required simply close the slide valves and select the setting on the multi port valve you require as normal.

    All parts required are supplied with the By-Pass kit.

    As an estimate the use of the by-pass kit should reduce the pressure required by the water pump by 25%.
