Set up a Pond System

Why filter your pond?

A pond is a complete, miniature eco-system. Problems occur if any of its components get out of balance. Modern filtration systems use a natural, chemical free process to create a healthy balance in the pond so that the fish and wildlife can enjoy a clean habitat, plants thrive and the whole feature is pleasant to look at. Factors such as sunlight, oxygen and pond life can have an effect on the water in your pond.

What is a pond system?

It’s a system for filtering, clarifying and maintaining healthy, clear pond water in a garden pond environment.

It’s made up of three main items: Filter, UVC and Pump

Hozelock Cyprio offer numerous solutions to keep your pond healthy and clean. Plan what you want in your pond, for example fish stocks and decorative features such as waterfalls and fountains, so you can pick the perfect set-up for your pond.

Filters

A filter works in two ways, mechanically and biologically. Mechanical filtration means removing the solid particles that cloud the water. Biological filtration removes the pollutants that can be harmful to fish. It is recommended that a fish pond should have some sort of filtration to keep the water healthy and clear. The size of the filter should be determined by the volume of water and the number of fish being stocked.

UVC

An Ultra Violet Clarifier clumps together the algae that cause green water so that the filter can then remove it. A Vorton UVC can be connected into the hose run between the pump and filter. For very large ponds a tandem conversion kit for two UVCs is available. Alternatively, Hozelock Cyprio filters EasyClear, Bioforce Revolution and Ecopower+ come with an integral UVC.

Vorton

VortonUVC1

A revolution in the efficient elimination of green water algae that can be positioned in almost any position to complement your pond’s needs

Pumps

A solids handling pump will pump dirty water into the UVC and filter. The movement of water will also introduce oxygen into the water, which is needed both by the fish and the beneficial bacteria in the pond. A pump can be used to create a decorative feature such as a fountain or waterfall.

Aquaforce

Solids handling pumps for filtration, waterfalls and watercourses. The large cage surface area reduces cage clogging & improves water purity.

Cascade

The Hozelock Cascade pump offers a choice of fountain display functions and comes complete with a number of accessories.
