The Helix Moving Bed Waterfall Filter is like no other supplemental filter you have ever seen! It is revolutionary in its combined ease of use (No maintenance) and incredible effectiveness. This filter is for biological filtration only and is meant to be used alongside some other form of filtration, such as an undergravel grid, bead filter or natural planted bog.
NOTE: Compare the Helix Moving Bed Waterfall Filter to the new Helix Bio-Mechanical Reactor. They are related filters with one significant difference: the Moving Bed is 100% biological, with no particle or mechanical filtration at all. It is also virtually maintenance-free, but it is no a stand-alone filter. Every pond needs some form of filtration that traps or removes particulates. That is where the Bio-Mechanical Reactor takes over. The Reactor has a significant aeration-assisted biological capacity, but it also has mechanical filtration (and therefore requires flushing out trapped particulates).
For best results, use the Bio-Mechanical Reactor wherever total filtration is needed. This filter, coupled with a skimmer, will provide everything you need for high-quality pond filtration with reasonable regular maintenence that is easily accessible outside the pond.
For ponds that already have a bog, bead filter, undergravel filter grid or other mechanical filtration, the Moving Bed Waterfall Filter adds amazing biological capability without adding anything to your mainenance routine.
