Pond Filtration Guide
In a pond, there are a few different types of outdoor pond water filters that are regularly utilized. Let's take a look at each one individually:
1) The skimmer
A skimmer is a mechanical filter that collects floating material from the pond's surface.
2) Biological Filters
A biological pond filter contains beneficial bacteria that clean the water on a molecular level. Ammonia will naturally build up in your pond water due to fish waste or rotting leaves, twigs, and grass. The toxic Ammonia is broken down into Nitrates by a biological filter, which becomes a source of food for the pond's plants.
3)Submersible Pond Filters
A submersible pond filter is a good option if you have a small water garden or fountain and are searching for a quick and affordable solution to acquire some filtering. Although these filters will not provide the same amount of filtration as a waterfall or pressured filter, they will provide mechanical filtration for preventing particles from entering your pump. You will also get a small amount of biological filtration, however not as much as with a dedicated biological filter.
4)Water Garden Filter Systems with Biological and Mechanical Components
Many manufacturers have built filtration systems that combine biological, mechanical, and/or UV filters, making the usage of many filtering methods in a single container considerably easier.
