Pond filtration is one of the most important components in maintaining a healthy and balanced ecosystem. Quality filtration equipment is necessary to maintain optimum water quality. Discount Pumps offers a wide selection of quality pond filtration to suit any budget or water garden.
Submersible Pond Filters- These innovative pond filters are low profile and designed to be unobtrusive in the bottom of the pond. Their large filter area means less frequent cleaning. More than one filter can be connected to a pump using a tee fitting. These pond filters offer mechanical, chemical and biological filtration.
External Pressurized Pond Filters- The presence of a large population of uni-cellullar algae causes green water. This algae is a pondkeeper's nightmare. "Pea soup" conditions caused by algae are unattractive and threaten fish health by using up oxygen. Green water occurs in most ponds and can be very difficult to eliminate. When green water is pumped through the UV Clarifier, the algae are exposed to ultra-violet light. As they pass around the UV lamp, these particles are flocculated ( clumped together). Water circulation carries them to the filter, which removes them, leaving behind only clean water.
