Product Information

Velda's Clear Control 50 Pressure Filter is an advanced pond filter, ideal for fish ponds. Suitable for fish free ponds up to 20,000 litres, it can be used with Koi ponds of up to 10,000 or goldfish ponds up to 15,000 litres.

It contains both a UV clarifier and media to fully cleanse the water of algae cells and waste. Each unit comes complete with an 18 watt Ultra Violet lamp and an additional chamber to add another lamp should you wish. This is great if an algae problem occurs or in increased sunlight. Algae cells are clumped together as they pass before the lamp making them much easier to remove.

The water then passes through the various grade filter foams which remove particles of dirt and debris easily from the water. Biological filter media with a huge surface mass promotes the growth of healthy bacteria which breakdown nitrites and other unwanted elements which can cause water problems.

    I spent over an hour with the pond filter expert who showed great temperament in explaining how the Velda would work and what I needed to do to get it to work properly. I’m not technical in any way and was a bit nervous about buying the machine.
    He then spent time on setting up the machine for me before I paid for the items and brought them home.
    Unfortunately the hoses were not set up correctly which meant that I had to remove, cut to size and replace before it worked according to the booklet. There were 2 other problems that I also came across. The filter dial that shows when dirt was building up didn’t seem to work and I discovered that even though Swell UK told me the unit was ‘self-cleaning’ wasn’t.

    I spoke to the store about returning the filter and pump and was told to bring both back with my invoice and not to worry about the piping that had all been cut to size and buried in the ground.
    I was a little upset to find that the refund I received was not in fact a ‘full’ refund ( as I had been promised in the store ) and had been charged for the piping that I had bought. Piping that really couldn’t be returned as it had been cut and buried and I had been told not to bother returning it.

    A lesson learnt and a bill for £50.00.
    Not very happy to be honest.

    This was a replacement for a smaller filter unit. Very pleased with the performance to date. Overall a much better unit.
