You are buying one x
20 litre bag of bio pond chip media
111m2 biologically activatable surface.
This media provides Biological (Ammonia & Nitrite) Filtration.
The Pond chip has a very low tare weight related to the surface area provided, and can optimally be kept in suspension in the MBBR tank by means of low energy to be supplied. The slightly parabolic shape (comparable to potato crisps) promotes the carrier movement caused by process air supplied for oxygenation, and by the water turbulences in the tank. Due to the low tare weight in conjunction with the optimal and easy movement in the water, the kinetic energy ocurring on the carrier media elements impacting the tank wall and/or other surfaces is remarkably low (negligible) and allows for a long lifetime. Larger and heavier carrier media types tend to increased abrasion and wear due to their higher kinetic energy.
England Mainland shipping only.
Please ask for a quote to dispatch elsewhere thank you.
Note: Filter bio start may be necessary to avoid "new pond syndrome".
This media floats at first but then sinks when the bio film, begins to form after approximately 1 week in pond water with fish in.
Ideal in an aerated moving bed filter.
Cuts down on space required due to huge biological area per litre (5.57m2 per litre).
Capable of "filtering" over 500 uk gallons of pond water per litre of chips given you have sufficient flow, also dependant on fish loading.
We recommend hanging the bag of Media Chips in the pond water for a few days so they take on the Biofilm to enable them too sink as they will try to float initially.
The Media chips are made of virgin, food grade PE and
"DO NOT" include recycled materials.
We also have a comprehensive stock of pumps, please make contact to discuss. Thanks..
