DIY Project 1 - Pond Biofilter

  • Tremendous job by Mr.Pete in building his own biofilter for his own use.
  • He research and build a biological filteration system for the existing pond.
  • The most common biofilter uses various sizes of gravel as the filter media in an out-of-pond box.
  • Many include a prefilter to trap large particles before they reach the biofilter media, extending the time between cleanings of the biofilter.
  • A bottom drain is a common feature for flushing sediment and muck out of the filter.
  • Most filters also provide some means for aerating the water to create an oxygen-rich environment for the bacteria that colonize the media.
