What are pond filters?

A pond filter, just like a pump, is a critical part of any pond. It works to cleanse the water of debris and toxins, making it safer and cleaner for fish. Depending upon the size of your pond, there are several types of filters available. Filters come in a wide variety of forms, some include a pump while others must be used in conjunction with a separate pump.

Why should I buy pond filters?

Pond filters ensure that your pond is protected from toxins, like ammonia, and free from waste. While each pond filter is different and has unique strengths, all will help to improve the clarity of your water and generally create a more hospitable habitat for your pond life.

What should I look for?

The biggest thing to look at with pond filters is whether they are right for your pond, you need to know what needs to be filtered out of your pond and whether the filter can handle enough water to make a difference in your pond. To check the presence of different waste materials you'll need to pick up a pond test kit. On the other hand, to work out if a pump is right for the volume of your pond you can check the specifications and look at the maximum flow rate to see how much water the filter can handle.
