PT1716 Laguna Pressure Flo 6000 Pond Filter
The Pressure-Flo 6000 pressurised pond filter provides important water filtration functions that are essential for everyday pond maintenance: mechanical filtration and biological filtration, as well as UVC sterilization.
Pressure-Flo filters feature the revolutionary patented Easy Clean Backwash-Cleaning System that completely cleans the entire surface of the foam filters, and has had significant improvements so is now even easier to use than before.
The Pressure-Flo 6000 is designed to work in tandem with a solids handling pump, ideally a Laguna Max-Flo waterfall and filter pump and is available as such in the Laguna Clear Flo Kits for the ultimate combination of powerful water movement and filtration. With the filter connected to the pump, water enters the unit through a water inlet. It then passes through the mechanical filtration stage, consisting of highly durable foam filters that intercept and trap dirt and debris.
Next, water enters a biological filtration chamber where it comes into contact with BioRock biological filter media which removes ammonia, and harbours beneficial bacteria keeping the water healthy for plants and fish.
Dirt-free water then passes along an integrated 11W UVC lamp, where it is exposed to ultraviolet rays that inhibit the growth of green water algae. Water finally returns to the pond thoroughly cleansed.
This patented system is the only one of its kind. Backwash cleaning can easily and comfortably be completed in a few minutes without opening the lid. This feature ensures that the filter performs at optimal levels for many days and prolongs the time between full maintenance sessions. An easy-to-view cleaning indicator signals when it's time to perform backwash cleaning.
Use in conjunction with the Pond Planet Pressure Filter Rock Cover to seamlessly integrate your Laguna Pressure Flo filter into the surrounding garden.
