This compact pond filter from Blagdon is one of the most popular pond filters around. The MiniPond 4500 is a gravity fed box filter that features multi stage filtration for the ultimate clean. It is perfect for fish free ponds up to 4500 litres in capacity, and has a flow rate of around 2,250 litres per hour.
The 5 watt Ultra Violet lamp treats the passing water and forces single algae cells to clump together, which makes them much easier to filter out. This reduces the risk of algae problems such as Green Water.
Next the water passes through top quality filter pads that trap dirt and grime, these pads can be rinsed for cleaning. Biological filter media then helps remove an excess of nitrates, ammonia and other elements thanks to a growth of natural bacterial colonies.
Polymer wool pads polish the water and remove any stubborn pieces of grime whilst a carbon cartridge removes any residue of medicine, taints and odours. All that remains is top quality, good condition pond water, making the best environment for plants and fish.
A well maintained pond is a happy pond, and taking care of your MiniPond is easy via the hinged lid. Simply clean the media in old pond water to retain the bacterial cultures. Using tap water can destroy this and cause fish health problems thanks to the chlorine in the water.
