A pond filter, just like a garden pond pump, is a vital piece of pond equipment. 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 filter available. Here at Swell UK we carry a large number of pond filters from various leading manufacturers such as Blagdon, Oase and Cloverleaf in versions such as bio filters, external and internal filters and many more.
If you have both plants and animals in your pond, you'll need a biological pond filter or UV pond filter. This type of filter not only strains away any debris and waste but also removes chemicals, organic compounds and if it uses UV light, eradicates the algae cells as they pass through the water. Only clean, fresh water is returned to the pond, ensuring the health of both fish and plants. The Swell Bio UV Pond Filter 8000 is suitable for ponds with fish up to 4000 litres and efficiently cleanses the water with a multi stage filtration system and UV light.
You may find that additional kit is required such as blanket weed controllers, surface skimmers and maybe a pre-filter (especially if you have a large fish stock). Equally these products can be used in fish free ponds or water features to rid the water of surface algae and grime.
For large ponds, check out our range of Multi Chamber Filters that sit outside the pond, effortlessly removing all trace of dirt and waste.
