Description & Specifications

Dive in and see what the future offers in no hassles, low maintenance filtration. Aquadyne By KOI CAMP Aquariology, The Worlds First Perfect Bead Filtration System. Boosts Total Biological Filtration Capacity Approximately 30%. The Dyna~max forced air cleansing allows thorough washing of bead media through a significant increase in turbulence of media prior to backwashing. The forced air washing, completely breaks up the entire media bed and frees all fine materials that may otherwise remain suspended in the media for further biodegrading. Reduces the water Necessary to backwash by as much as 80%. During a normal non air-assisted backwash cycle, the Model 4.4 would typically require between 200 and 300 gallons of water to effectively clean the filter of waste. With the Dyna~max system you can backwash the same filter with as little as 60 gallons of water. This is most desirable for those wishing to install a larger filter on a pond of a lesser volume than the filter is rated for, because very little make-up water has to be added to the pond after a backwash cycle and a much larger fish load can be maintained in a smaller environment, while greatly entending the time between backwashing.

The Model 8.8-C is definitely THE HANDS DOWN WINNER of all bead filters in its price range, boasting worry free maintenance on ponds up to 28,000 gallons. The latest proving ground for high fish load concentrations on the Model 8.8 is a commercial fishery that is running 600 pounds of fish in a single living, growing system with generous feeding habits, yet they claim a most excellent water quality with regard to waste management. At such a heavy load, their practice is to take a few minutes and backwash the system every day to eliminate the mechanical waste from the heavy feeding that goes on in the commercial facility. In the average large pond installation, the sheer volume of the Model 8.8 will allow you to backwash as little as once every 3 weeks. A note on Aquadyne Pricing
