Product Description & Reviews
Tetra Pond Bio-Active Pressure Filter with UV Clarifier BP4000-UV is designed for ponds up to 4000 gallons. Bio-Active Pressure Filters provide mechanical and biological filtration to help maintain clear and healthy pond water. Its unique open profile bio-activators provide large surface area and unrestriced water flow to all surfaces for improved cleaning. It is designed with an easy, backflush valve for fast cleaning. This filter also integrates an Ultra-Violet Clarifier that provides permanent control of suspended algae which cause green water. Includes a 2 year limited warranty (excludes bulbs). The Easy Solution for a Clear and Healthy Pond The TetraPond Bio-Active Pressure Filter with UV Clarifier works to keep your pond clean and healthy with both mechanical and biological filtration. This easy-to-use filter features a unique open profile bio-activator that provides a large surface area and unrestricted water flow to all surfaces for improved cleaning. An included TetraPond UV Bulb works to reduce the presence of single-celled algae by reducing its ability to reproduce. A simple back flush valve allows for fast cleaning. Model Capacity Wattage BP1500-UV 1,500 Gallons 9 Watt BP2500-UV 2,500 Gallons 18 Watt BP4000-UV 4,000 Gallons 18 Watt How it Works Water is pumped from the pond to the pressure filter. Water is mechanically and biologically filtered. Filtered water is forced up the center tube. UV light destroys the single-celled algae’s availability to reproduce. Dead algae cells clump and are removed by the filter. Filtered water is forced under pressure to the waterfall or stream. Mechanical Filtration Pond water flows down through the bio-activators which remove suspended debris and dirt from the water. UV Clarifier Each TetraPond Bio-Active Clarifier comes complete with a TetraPond UV Clarifier Bulb. The UV clarifier works by exposing single-celled algae to very high levels of Ultra Violet light as the pond water containing them is pumped through the clarifier. The water containing single-celled algae comes in close contact with the light from the UV bulb that is protected from the water by a quartz glass sleeve. The Ultra Violet radiation disrupts the algae’s ability to reproduce. The algae die and clump together; at which point they are easily removed by the bio-activators inside the pressure filter. Biological Filtration Biological Filtration occurs on the massive surface areas found in the bio-activators. Beneficial bacteria will naturally colonize on the surface area and convert harmful pollutants in the water into relatively harmless nitrates, which are absorbed by the aquatic plants and removed by partial water changes. This is known as the “Nitrogen Cycle”. Bio-Activators TetraPond Bio-Active Pressure Filters come equipped with bio-activators which offer superior filtration and back flush performance over foam. In normal filtration operation, these bio-activators easily trap dirt and debris from your pond and because of their shape they provide a large active surface area for the beneficial bacteria to colonize for upgraded biological filtration. During the back flush operation, bio-activators provide unrestricted water flow to all the surfaces so that dirt and debris are thoroughly removed while leaving the beneficial bacteria on the bio-activator surfaces intact and robust. Easy Back Flush Capabilities The water is reversed and forced down the center tube. The water jets create a whirlpool effect in the bio-activator chamber. Dirt and debris is loosened from the bio-activators. Dirty water is discharged out the back flush port into the garden. Enhance Your Filtration Performance For high performance, power your TetraPond Bio-Active Pressure Filter with a Tetra Pond DHP series clog-free debris handling pump. This combination of pump and filter provides the easy solution for pond maintenance and care. Do not use with pumps that exceed 4500 gallons per hour. This could damage the filter. Do not use pumps with flows less than 2500 gal/hr. A minimum of 2500 gallons per hour is necessary to perform the back flush operation. Note: All pressure filters restrict the flow from your pump. Expect about a 45% reduction in the water flow through the filter.
