Here you have what is acknowledged to be one of the original and the best bead filters.This filter is the most efficient and maintenance free system ever introduced into the industry in such a small package, and can be easily used with a submersible pump. I have been using this on my 8000lt Koi pond to good effect, however I have changed to a gravity fed system and now this excellent compact filter is surplus to requirements. It has been a pleasure to use after upgrading from the old sponge filter system I used to use, no more smelly dirty hands cleaning all the cr..p out off the sponges. Only thing that makes this not perfect is the previous owner left the blower running without opening up the inlet valve, subsequently the blower body has sagged due to the heat build up. This did mean that some air escaped the body on the cleaning cycle. However I have fibreglassed around the fan and body to make a complete seal so this no longer effects the operation of the filter just the cosmetics.
These are currently retailing at £1125.00, so good luck and get yourself a bargain! Sorry buyer will have to collect due to size.
The Aquadyne 1.1 B Bead Filter is perfectly suited for koi ponds up to 3000 gallons. The Aquadyne 1.1B Bead Filter will support up to 30 kg of koi.
The Aquadyne 1.1 Bead filters have been engineered specifically for koi ponds and water gardens. The secret to the Aquadyne bead filters, is that they feature a central diffuser column that reduces internal friction loss. The Aquadyne 1.1 Bead filter design has no internal elbows, and allows maximum water flow under the most abusive feeding practices. The Aquadyne 1.1 Bead filter supports colossal amounts of fish AND delivers GIN CLEAR water, without flow restrictions. We cannot foresee a more perfect bead filter being introduced than the Aquadyne Bead filter . The best part of the Aquadyne 1.1 Bead filter is it's unique plumbing which allows water to bypass the filter completely, for medication purposes. The rinse cycle in the Aquadyne is an absolute must, as there is absolutely no "brown dirt cloud" after a backwash. The Dynamax blower aggressively agitates the debris collected in the media bed and suspends it in the water column which is easily backwashed to waste. With the blower this unit will use about 30 gallons per backwash. The Aquadyne 1.1B will support up to 85 pounds of fish while feeding once per day. The Aquadyne 1.1B is excellently suited for medium to moderately sized indoor large volume aquariums or more heavily stocked laboratory research applications. Also works exceptionally well for medium to moderately sized aquatic environments for alternative species exhibits.
