Just like your pond pump, your pond’s filter should match the size of your water garden.
Most pond filters are based on ideal circumstances, and if you exceed them, your filter will be less efficient.
Always enlarge your filter so that it can handle more of your pond capacity and don't forget to use your filter as instructed.
There are two types of filters in an Aquascape ecosystem pond.
A mechanical strainer, also known as a skimmer, filters surface debris from your pond water, such as leaves and small sticks.
The biological filter, or BioFalls filter, is positioned to create the beginning of the waterfall in your pond.
This filter uses bacteria to break down pond waste, converting it into less harmful compounds that can be taken up as fertilizer by your aquatic plants.
