Mechanically and biologically operating pressure pond filter SunSun CPF-500 with integrated 18W UVC pond clarifier. Technical equipment as well as connections are in the top cover. The pond filter can be dug without any problems. The pond water can be pumped to higher-lying waterfalls and returned into the garden pond again.
Purification and maintenance:
The yearly maintenance is limited to the control of the filter media and the UVC-lamp. The UVC-lamp should be changed after every 6000-8000 operating hours. Said change is supposed to be most optimal with the start of the pond season in spring.
The cleaning of the filter sponges is possible by the means of manual backwash. You simply exchange the inlet and outlet. The water required for the backwash could be used to water the garden.
Location of the pressure pond filter:
The pressure pond filter is located at the edge of the pond and connected to the water by a suitable pond pump (not included in the supply, kindly note the maximum volume capacity of the pond pump). The water is passed through the pond filter past the integrated UV-pond clarifier and led back into the pond, now being purified.
By the way of mechanical filtration, floating particales and dirt remain in the filter and do not return into the pond water.
Pond filter combine the mechanical and biological purification. Microorganisms accumulate inside the filter materials and remove germs and bacteria from the water. Floating particles and dirt are removed.
It takes about 4-6 weeks for the filter bacteria to settle sufficiently inside the pond filter. Only then it is reasonable to make use of a UVC-pond clarifier. The so-called initial starter bacteria help to reduce the time for a new pond filter. The “starter bacteria” are known as special microorganisms that are grown in laboratories. Being ctive at a temperature of approx. 10°-12°, the pond filter´s temperature should not exceed 40°C. It is therefore advisable to place the pond filter in a shady place. It should not be exposed to direct sunlight.
UVC-pond clarifier significally support the effectiveness of the pond filter. Being in a flow reactor, pond clarifier radiate the pond water with UV-C radiation. Due to their UV-radiation, UVC ond clarifier change the tertiary and quaternary structure of algae proteins. This means the destruction of algae. The algae clump together, thus forming large particles that can be easily removed from the water cycle by the mechanical pond filtration inside the pond filter.
NOTE: Pump not included. One needs to buy it separately.
Suitable PUMP outflow would be 3000 to 10000 L/H.
