Purpose and Benefits:

New from Tetra, the Bio-Active pressure filter has been re-engineered for maximum bio filtration resulting in a clear and healthy pond. New vortex internal pumping jets ensure maximum water-to-media contact to support bacterial growth and provide for superior bio-activity. The rugged construction of this filter is built to last. The unique open profile bio-activators will not clog and give you the most surface area possible. With no foam to clog, the simple back flush feature keeps your filter performing in peak condition with no need to open the filter for cleaning.

Each pressure filter is sold as either a stand-alone unit or with an integrated UV clarifier to provide permanent control of suspended algae and reduce green water.

    Selecting the proper size filter:
    The selection guide above matches the pond size with the recommended filter model. There is no harm in using a filter that has a greater filtration capacity for your pond size.
    Selecting the right pump size:
    Some flow can be lost through the filter. According to Tetra: "The water flow may be diminished approximately 40% by the resistance caused by the pressure filter. A pump that is capable of pumping 1000 gph (at the height of the pressure filter inlet) may result in a flow of 600 gph from the filter to the pond. Keep this in mind when selecting the proper pump size."

    For these pressurized filters it is best to stay away from high pressure pumps such as "Waterfall pumps" or pumps with high head rates. Tetra recommends the DHP-3600 for the BP1500 and the DHP-4200 for the BP2500 and BP4000 models.

    Important Note:
    It is important not to exceed the recommended flow through the filter. Exceeding the recommended flow rate, could cause leaking or possible damage. A Ball valve can be used if necessary to regulate water to the filter.
