The Oase Biotec Pond Filter 10.1 is also a flow though filter which have many advantages such as the rich supply of oxygen and high flow through rates.
Remaining fish food, fish excrement, decaying vegetation and also petals, leaves and dust brought in by the wind pollute a pond with a surplus of nutrients. The consequences are often algae growth and murky ponds. Increased decomposition processes also pollute the pond with toxic substances, which will reduce plant growth and endanger the health of fish or other occupants of the pond.
The biological cleaning
This is where the Biotec 10.1 get really active. The polluted water is fed into the filter system with the help of an Aquamax filter pump and the optimised filter surfaces trap the large pollution particles.
Additionally, the filter develops the all important biological environment to enable the nitrification in oxygen-rich conditions (blue and red filter foams). During this process toxic nitrite compounds are converted into other harmless compounds.
Biotec 10.1 offers the required volume and a sufficiently large filter surface area for the second stage of the decomposition of nitrite compounds, the denitrification (green filter foams). Here, in an oxygen poor area, micro-organisms help to convert the end product of the nitrification process into gaseous nitrogen which can escape from the pond.
