Pond Filters and Filter Media
Pond Filters are an important part to most ponds and water gardens. They will help remove debris and biological waste from your pond. There are 2 main types of filtration used in water gardens. Mechanical filtration refers to the physical removal of debris by materials that trap large and small particles. Biological filtration is where your system provides a place for beneficial bacteria to grow on special media. The system focuses the growth of bacteria. These bacteria remove harmful pollutants,through a natural process, from pond water. Most successful pond systems have a varying degree of both mechanical and biological filtration.
