After all, your own pond is not only an incredibly beautiful element of landscape design, but also an opportunity to live in harmony with nature, relax with your soul without leaving your home.

But, it is not so easy to enjoy harmony with nature if your pond is not clean and well maintained, without proper care, it just becomes a breeding ground for fungi, algae and other parasites that can affect all life in your pond. In order that you can always enjoy clean water in the pond and of course its inhabitants, you must adhere to the most important rule – to filter the water in time. For this purpose, special devices have been developed to support the natural biological, natural conditions for normal living organisms, water transparency, health of the inhabitants and cleanliness in your pond.

But today in our online store offers a wide range of all kinds of pond water filtration systems. These systems differ from each other many criteria, such as the company, the country of manufacture, the principle of operation, power and other not insignificant parameters. The question of selection of the best pond filter must be addressed even during the design of the pond itself, taking into account such factors as:

  • pond depth and dimensions;
  • climatic conditions;
  • lighting;
  • presence of vegetation and fish;
  • the degree of contamination of the pond.

Let’s now take a closer look at what types of filters are available:

  • Pressure
  • Flowing

Pressure – their peculiarity is that it can supply treated water above the level of its location. After being cleaned by the filter, the water can be used for a cascade fountain or a small stream.

Flowing (external) – these types of filters are installed on the bank of the garden plot. From this filter, the water simply flows downwards.

As far as pressure filters are concerned, it is the pressure filters that are considered to be the most user-friendly and economic ones today. This type of filter is designed for cleaning small ponds. The essence of this device is very simple, under pressure it passes water through itself, it in turn passes various degrees of filtration. If the filter is equipped with a UV lamp, the water is additionally disinfected with UV rays to sterilize the water. The advantage of this type of filter is that it can be easily disguised, and unfortunately the disadvantage is the constant need for a large water pressure.

Flow filter – it is already designed for cleaning large volumes of water up to 200 m3 (cubic meters). These filters are a kind of reservoir with all the necessary filter elements for pond cleaning. This type of filter is already installed above the water level in the pond. The main and undisputed advantage of this type of filters is their long service life and, of course, high efficiency. Flow filters have only one drawback, it is not possible to disguise it, but it is a completely insignificant drawback.
In order to determine which filter to choose for your pond, you can go to “Pond Filters” and easily find the right one for you.

So, in order to clean the water surface of your pond, we recommend the use of special devices such as “Skimmers”. The role of this device is very important when cleaning a pond. Skimmers are also available in two types of floating (float) and built-in. Skimmers will remove all large particles (grass, leaves) before they sink to the bottom and contaminate the pond. The device is very easy to use and does not require any time-consuming cleaning of the trash bin itself. Garbage from the skimmer bin can be removed without having to dismantle the unit by simply removing the bin. The quality of the water in your pond depends directly on the efficiency of the skimmer.

When choosing a pond filter, it is not superfluous, of course, to pay attention to the country of the manufacturer. On our website you can find the main branded manufacturers.

  • Pond pump.
