Help and advice on shopping for: Pond Filter Media

Keep your filter running smoothly

Filter media is a crucial part of any pond filter system as it is the material that sieves out any waste from your water and purifies it. Our wide range of filter media includes material from top brands including Blagdon, Hozelock and Oase as well as our own products.

What is pond filter media?

Pond filter media is the material that sits inside a pond filter and sieves out all of the fine particles of sand, dirt and debris that can pollute the water. There are three types of media; mechanical, chemical and biological, they are often used together to perform a full and thorough clean of your pond and ensure that grime, dirt, toxins and odours are eradicated from the water.

Why should I buy filter media?

Even if your pump includes filter media, every pond is different and will need a different type of filter media to successfully remove all toxins and waste. Over time, filter media will degrade as the physical movement of water and solids breaks it down, so you'll need to replace it every couple of months to ensure efficient filtration.

What are the main types of pond filter media?

Pond filter media fall into three main categories: biological filter media, mechanical filter media, and chemical filter media. Biological filter media act as a home for the beneficial bacteria that break down toxins in the fish waste; mechanical filter media sieve out particles from the water, and chemical filter media are used to remove specific toxic chemicals from the pond water.

What should I look for?

Finding the right type of filter media for your pond can be difficult, it might require some trial and error. We recommend looking for the filters that will eliminate the waste from your pond and then buying a few different products to replace each other once each has worn away - by doing this you can find the one that works best in your pond.
