Sand as a filter media has gotten a bad rap for pond filters for 3 reasons:

  1. The 1st reason is too much sand was used, in other words the filters were overloaded;
  2. The 2nd reason is the wrong size sand was used alone, without any modifying media.
  3. The 3rd reason is too many people used motors that were too small, like 1/8 HP motors, which are way too small to get a good backwash action.

Sand has some of the best characteristics for filtration media:

  • It has the smallest particle size, and therefore the greatest surface area per cubic foot.
  • It is cheap, and readily available.

We have found we can eliminate the problems:

  1. By under loading the filters with a smaller charge of sand,
  2. And by using a special mix of a particular sized sand with pea gravel.
  3. We also use larger horse power motors for backwashing;
  4. and we use the Koi Care Algaecide for eliminating the algae problems. 

Combining these solutions we have found a much cheaper and much more effective filter for ponds, which is the "Best Pond Filter" series.

  • Now, we have found a brand new media that promises to be very beneficial, and it is very inexpensive.
