Aquadyne 8000HE Pressurized Bead Filter - Formerly 2.2BHE

Product Features
Product Reviews

The Model AD 8000BHE Package includes a 2" High Efficiency Control Head with 2" plumbing in and out. This is the same control head and column as used in the Model 16000. The only difference is that the column is just 4 inches shorter in length, while maintaining the flow efficiency of the 16000. This model was introduced to accommodate clients who wanted to use very energy efficient pumps and not having to sacrifice too much water flow. If you want to use a low head, efficient pump in this 8000 gallon pond class then this filter may be for you. If you feel that friction loss improvement is beneficial to you, you will not be disappointed.

The Model 8000HE is an excellent choice for a bead filtration system for larger ponds. The Model AD8000 far exceeds the performance of most all competitive filtration units in it's class. Entering the 8000 class, the AD8000HE, and the AD8000HE both truly perform spectacularly for ponds in this size range.

The 8000HE is a High Efficiency version of the AD8000HE. While very much like the 8000, the AD8000HE offers the added efficiency of a 2" multiport valve which is further machined to decrease friction loss. The additional efficiency offered by this model will allow an improvement in water flow by about 15% to 20% with low head, high efficiency pumps. As with the 8000 this model includes the Dynamax air assisted backwash which makes this model extremely efficient in all ranges of waste loading. This unit will efficiently filter 8000 gallons of water with up to 165 pounds of fish or other aquatic inhabitants. Even under the heaviest of waste loading, the Dynamax will break up a loaded media bed with ease. The larger media bed is very forgiving of neglect. You can backwash the Model 8000HE with as little as 50 gallons of water. In an 8000 gallon pond you will hardly even notice a water loss.
