Create an oxygen-rich biological environment for your pond. The Oase Biotec 10.1 handles high flow-rates and incorporate foam pads of three varying densities to support both aerobic and anaerobic bacteria.
The Oase Biotec 10.1 creates zones of higher and lower flow rates within the filter for complete nitrification - processes ammonia, nitrite, AND nitrate.
The Oase Biotec 10.1 features inlets for optional aeration pump, filter maintenance indicator, plunger-style filter pad cleaning system, sludge discharge drain, secondary hose inlet, thermometer, and two chemical filter media slots.
How Biotec Filtration Works:
The red and blue filter pads support an oxygen-rich environment where harmful substances such as nitrite are converted into more benign compounds through a process called nitrification.
The Green filter pads are designed to support a second, low-oxygen biological environment where microorganisms convert the products in the first phase into gaseous nitrogen. All filter pads are hung from the bottom of the internal cover. This makes cleaning extremely easy and convenient.
When the pads require cleaning (as indicated by the cleaning indicator), they can be "pumped" clean by pulling in the built-in handles. Removal of the pads for cleaning is not necessary. The secondary water inlet can be connected to the water supply or a garden pump and used to flush debris and sludge out during cleaning.
The Oase Biotec 10.1 features a cleaning indicator. When water can no longer pass through the filter pads at the required rate, an indicator alerts to that fact. Oxygen is added to pond water as it first enters the filter by application of the Venturi principle in order to support the nitrification process in the first biological filter zone. An aeration pump can also be connected so oxygen can be added directly where it is required. The thermometer displays the current water temperature.
