The best micro bead filters in the USA
This is the filter that revolutionized the bead filter world. Meet the AquaBead Filter. The Industry standard for Bead Filter.
All of the AquaBead filters utilize the Omnifuser design that picks up heavier solids in the center of the bottom of the vessel. Why do we want to do this? Our goal is to have a filter that doesn't load up with solids. When a filter "loads up" it ceases to perform at its peak. Our goal then is to pick up the heavier solids in the center where debris exists.
The solids wait there until the operator does a backwash. This is accomplished with the pump running, which causes the solids to be purged out to waste under pressure from the pump. This unique feature of the AquaBead enables it be an extremely efficient filter, because an efficient filter doesn't hold solids, it gets rid of them. Backwashing for just a short time is all that is needed. We have designed the AquaBead filter to provide customer satisfaction not only when new, but down the road when servicing is needed.
Bead filters are close to perfect, some more than others, but one problem no one has addressed until now is, how to keep the bacteria alive in the filter in case you need to do a medical bypass or in case your pump should fail you. TheAquaBead conquers this dilemma with the AquaBead Life Support System. This life support system known as"ALISS" will keep the bacteria alive indefinitely. On the front of the multiport valve is a special one way valve that will allow air in, but keep water from seeping out. With the water pump shut down, just slip an airline from your koi pond air pump onto the barbed fitting on the front of the Multiport valve and life giving oxygen is pumped into the tank for the bacteria to survive, while the beads are gently being tumbled within the filter to make sure all of the bacteria get a "breath of fresh air". This eliminates the need to have to "cycle" the filter again. Another AquaBead 1st.
