Beautiful anf Functional Pond Filtration

Waterfall filters are multifunctional units used to create beautiful waterfalls, rambling streams, or even pondless waterfall features. These filters often include mechanical or biological filter media to provide supplemental filtration for enhanced water quality.

aterfall filters are modular components boasting versatile installation options limited only by your imagination. Think of them as reservoirs or containers with a spillway that can be installed independently or incorporated as part of a larger filtration system or water feature. Simple, independent installation involves treating waterfall filters like an external filter powered by a submersible pump that draws water directly from the pond. However, the most popular application of waterfall filters involves use in conjunction with skimmer filters. When used in this fashion, the properly matched skimmer filter and waterfall filter form a circuit, (please see diagram below). Water drawn in and filtered by the skimmer filter is directed to the waterfall filter via a pump discreetly concealed within the skimmer filter.

Waterfall filters are gaining new and creative use with the rising popularity of pondless waterfalls and "disappearing" waterfalls. When used in this fashion, a pump hidden inside a pump vault supplies the water to drive the waterfall filter.
