Helix Life Support Moving Bed Biological Waterfall Filters

Helix Life Support

SKU: 2257

The Helix Moving Bed Waterfall Filter is like no other supplemental pond filter you have ever seen! It is revolutionary in its combined ease of use and incredible effectiveness. This no-maintenance filter is for biological filtration only and is meant to be used alongside some other form of filtration, such as an under-gravel grid, bead filter or natural planted bog.

Features of the Moving Bed Waterfall Filters:

  • Self-cleaning and needs zero maintenance (if placed after mechanical filtration)
  • So effective that it can convert the digested waste for 3 pounds of fish food each day!
  • Use with an air pump (Not included) for increased dissolved oxygen levels
  • Heavy-duty rotomolded HDPE construction is easy to hide in the landscape
  • Stainless steel hardware and high quality plumbing parts extend the filter life
  • Includes 5" Radial Air Diffuser, 3/4" Bulkhead, 2" Bulkhead, and 2" Suction Strainer to protect inlet
  • Made in America

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 not a stand-alone filter. Every pond needs some form of filtration that traps or removes particulates. That is where the Bio-Mechanical Reactor is different. 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 maintenance that is easily accessible outside the pond.

For ponds that already have a bog, bead filter, under-gravel filter grid or other mechanical filtration, the Moving Bed Waterfall Filter adds amazing biological capability without adding anything to your maintenance routine.
