The AquaBead X2 filters from Grand Champion Technologies (GC Tek) is perfect for larger pond applications where large flow rates are needed. Rather than using an oversizes pump, the X2 filters allow you to use two smaller pumps to achieve the necessary flow rates for your pond.
Life Support System The AquaBead Life Support System (ALISS) is designed to keep bacteria alive if you ever have to do a medical bypass, or if your pump fails. A one-way valve on the front of the multiport valve allows air in without letting water seep out! Simply hook up an air pump to the barbed fitting, and air will flow into the filter, keeping the bacteria alive.
Agitator The AquaBead Agitator prevents the filter beads from sticking together. When this 2 HP pump kicks into action, air is injected into the bottom of the filter, which breaks up the clumped beads as it rises violently to the top.
