The Pondmaster 1000 Mechanical Filter is designed for ease of use and simplicity and can be used with any submersible pump (pump not included). The Pondmaster 1000 Mechanical Filter can be used in as little as six inches of water. The convenient handle makes it easy to take the filter out of the water and quick disconnects allow for easy removal from pump sources. Modular design allows units to be connected together for high capacity. Dual filter elements offer particle filtering and chemical filtration of certain harmful compounds and unwanted colors. The Pondmaster 1000 Mechanical Filter rests on the bottom of the pond and is designed to connect to the intake side of a submerged pump by use of a flexible vinyl hose. The Pondmaster 100 Mechanical Filter comes complete with a swivel connector to attach to the filter's outlet. The other end of the connector accepts standard 3/4" ID (inside diameter) flexible vinyl tubing. In larger ponds, a longer piece of tubing can be used so that the filter can be moved as needed to collect debris in the pond while the pump unit remains stationary. The Pondmaster 1000 Mechanical Filter has two layers of filtering media that combine to filter both solid debris and chemical substances from the pond water. Pond water is first drawn into a coarse white polyester material which prefilters the water of larger particles. The second layer is a finer carbon impregnated filter material which filters smaller debris from the water; the activated carbon in this layer helps eliminate many harmful compounds as well as unwanted color from the pond water. The phosphates that are present in many water supplies join with the increased biological load present in most man made ponds to make a perfect breeding ground for algae. Coarse polyester filter is excellent for mechanical filtration of particles and the fine carbon-impregnated polyester filter is for chemical filtration. Because of its modular design, two or more Pondmaster 1000 Mechanical Filters can be teed together for larger volume pumps.
