Gravity Fed Filters

Some of the most cost effective and low maintenance systems available. Water from the pond is pumped to the filter where it then flows through the filter- overflowing and returning to the pond via gravity. These filters must be kept above the pond- usually installed at the beginnings of waterfalls.

Gravity Fed Filters

The BioSmart Gravity Filters are a multi-stage mechanical and biological filtration system in a compact package. During biological filtration, the water is channeled through a series of filter foams that create a special environment by allowing the settling of beneficial bacteria. During this stage, harmful ammonia and nitrites are converted to nitrates, which support plant life in the pond. For best results and clear water guarantee, use with an appropriately sized Oase pump and UV clarifier.

  • Innovative flow-through filter design provides maximum oxygenation
  • High-surface area filter foams provide exceptional biological filtration capability
  • Distinct filter zones promote the settlement of a variety of beneficial bacterial responsible for different phases of the nitrogen cycle, which increases the conversion of harmful ammonia in your pond
  • Advanced features include the built-in cleaning indicator notifies you when the filter needs cleaned and water temperature display tells you the water temperature at all times
  • Cleaning handles for convenient maintenance allow for easy cleaning without needing to remove or manually unclog the filter foams
  • After clearing the filter foams, the sludge drain can be opened for easy removal of coarse debris from the unit

The Oase Clear Water Guarantee is your assurance of clear water down to three feet, a guarantee like no other. Precisely engineered and matched components function in concert to remove not only suspended solids for excellent clarity, but toxic wastes as well, assuring high water quality. Filter pumps designed to pass solids pick up and deliver fish wastes to multistage filters. Filter foams of varying densities strip out solids and particulates. Beneficial bacterial colonies remove ammonia, nitrite and nitrate, eliminating nutrients in the water. Finally, water is bathed in ultraviolet light in an EPA-certified clarifier to further inhibit the growth of algae. You will be able to read the 1" mark on a measuring tape three feet below the surface, guaranteed.

Sea Side Aquatics Bakki Shower filters utilize a unique design where water is pumped to the top of the unit and dispersed over ceramic biological filter media (sold separately). As water flows through and around the media, it becomes infused with oxygen and undergoes biological filtration, contributing to the denitrification cycle. This process repeats as water drips through multiple levels, resulting in clean, clear, and highly-oxygenated water. It's no surprise that Bakki Showers are favored by koi farms in Japan and commercial aquaculture suppliers for their effectiveness, reliability, and minimal maintenance requirements.

Advanced filtration systems for Koi ponds now with NEW K+ Media

Building on the tried and tested technology that has been present in the world renowned Nexus, the team at Evolution Aqua have gone even further to enhance their number one koi pond filter. 

The Nexus 220+ and Nexus 320+ filters now come with a new filter media called K+ Media in the moving bed outer chamber for vastly improved biological filtration and faster filter maturation. The new Nexus+ filters are now supplied "auto ready", with factory fitted fixings already in place, making it even easier to upgrade to the Nexus Automatic Cleaning System.

How the Nexus Works

Water from the pond enters the nexus via the inlet into the inner chamber which works as a vortex, allowing larger solids to settle out. Water then passes through the grills in the stainless steel “Eazy” filter, where the finer particles are removed by the static bed K1 Micro® filter media. The clean water then passes to the outside chamber of the Nexus for biological treatment before returning to the pond. At this stage, biological breakdown occurs through different strains of bacteria and filter feeders living on the protected surface area of each K1+ Media filer. The bacteria convert Ammonia and Nitrite into less harmful Nitrate. Water then passes through the exit grill into the outlet and returns to the pond.

The EazyPod Automatic is a self-cleaning, mechanical and biological filter system for ponds up to 2,640 gallons.

The integrated control box contains an adjustable timer which initiates a cleaning cycle automatically - meaning your filter will clean itself even when you’re not there! Inside the control box, the electronic connector blocks control the automated waste valve, along with your choice of circulating pump (not supplied). It even houses an integral air pump which kicks in automatically to clean the K1 Micro media.

Crystal clear, healthy water is achieved by K1 Micro filter media, which also provides enhanced biological benefits by way of its protected surface area.

The Eazypod UV Automatic features an integrated 18 Watt UVC built in to the inlet section of the filter, helping to clear green water. Available in 2 models, users can select either the EazyPod Automatic or the EazyPod UV Automatic (with built-in 18 watt UV).

The Cetus sieve is a totally new, bow screen pre-filter, made using the latest rotational molding technology. With all of its benefits and build quality, it is undoubtedly the best of its kind on the market today, regarding quality and performance! It is designed to efficiently and effectively remove large amounts of mechanical waste from a pond. It can be set-up gravity OR pump fed and has many benefits over the original bow screen technology.

This Cetus has a variable inlet height using the unique patented Pondflow regulation system – for use when gravity fed. This allows water levels within the pond to drop without causing the circulating pump to be starved of water. The Cetus will allow a skimmer or a bottom drain to accept vast amounts of waste without excessive cleaning needed to be carried out. The water must then be pumped to either a normal filter above pond level (Nexus Eazy/Eazy Pod) or to a pressurised filter.

If pump fed, the sieve is placed above pond water level and then the exit water is gravity dropped into your main filter.

The Cetus sieve is a bow screen pre-filter, suitable for pre-filtration of any biological filter including all pressured filters. It is advised that all pressurised filters be pre-filtered using a Cetus to reduce excessive backwashing and maintenance due to heavy solids.

Installed and buried out of sight at the base of the downspout to capture and remove a variety of pollutants and debris. Incoming rainwater is passed through a series of mechanical filters that remove leaves, twigs, seeds, and small sediment. The first stage of filtration consists of a grated lid and layer of gravel (not included) that remove larger debris. The second stage of filtration is a 300-micron net that effectively removes finer particulate such as sediment composed of roofing material, dust, and other debris. Filtered rainwater can then be discharged into a rainwater harvesting system. 

  • Captures and removes a pollutants and debris from rainwater, perfect for rainwater harvesting systems
  • Removes leaves, twigs, seeds, and small sediment that accumulate on the roof
  • Two stages of mechanical filtration remove larger and finer particulate
  • Molded hose tail accommodates 3″ or 4″ corrugated drain pipe
