For ponds up to 2,000 gallons
Frequently overlooked by the hobbyist this range does have a lot to offer. Key features of the “compact series” (suitable for pump supply only) are the small footprint when space is restricted, coupled with the innovative design concept of incorporating an integral vortex style cavity for the settlement of solids – thereby reducing maintenance.
Filtration mediums comprise of multi foam layers offering both mechanical and biological attributes, with high performance “aquarock” forming the foundation for a biological bed for colonisation from beneficial bacteria.
This range can also be used as a superb separate system for connecting to a skimmer unit. All units are supplied with a timber slatted lid, together with waste valve set.
From the diagram below it can be seen that the pumped water supply enters the cavity of the filter at low level. With the cavity acting as a vortex the solids/particles drop to the bottom settlement area, where they can be drained off without cleaning all the filter mediums. The pond water rises up through the cavity, and via a series of aperture slots discharges into the main body of the filter, where in a downflow action then passes through the mechanical and biological foam layers & aquarock biological medium, to then rise vertical up through the central pipe following which in due turn returns the healthy filtered water back to the pond.
The vertical stack pipe also acts as an overflow.
The vh3/1 is suitable for koi ponds of 1,000 gallons (4,500 litres), or goldfish ponds up to 2,000 gallons (9,000 litres).
Size is 620mm diameter x 860mm high. This unit really would make a wonderful filter if hooked up to a surface skimmer in a large pond.
Note:- pipe inlet size 110mm (4") - outlet 82mm (3").
