Biosmart filters
 
Integrated UVC
 
Biokick CWS starter bacteria

Biosmart filters include Oase distinctive filter foams, with maximum surface area for beneficial bacteria, which transform toxic ammonia and nitrate into harmless nitrogen. Foams are easily squeezed clean, in situ, by the innovative compression mechanism

 

Integrated UVC Technology The integrated ultraviolet clarifier (UVC) ensures safe elimination of algae and pathogens on the Biosmart 7000 & 14000 filter models.

 

All Biosmart Sets include the new Oase Biokick CWS starter bacteria. The highly concentrated micro organisms help the filter foams to form vital biomass which kickstarts the biological breakdown of harmful nutrients and toxins

Pond Turnover Rates: The pond stocking levels will determine the required turnover rate which in turn determines the required pump flow rate. Typically, an ornamental pond without any fish will require the pond volume to be circulated at least once every 6 hours; an average stocked pond (with up to 1 kg of fish for every 1000 litres) will require circulating once every 4 hours; a heavily stocked pond including Koi (with up to 3 kg of fish for every 1000 litres) will require circulating once every 2 hours. 

Pump Flow Rate: The pump flow rate, typically in litres per hour (lph) or litres per minute (lpm) is determined by the vertical lift, in metres, from the surface of the pond to the outlet pipe AND by the friction losses through the system. The narrower the pipe bore the higher the friction losses, so always use the maximum hose diameter.

Effect of raising the filter outlet: Raising the filter outlet pipe height, typically for a watercourse or waterfall, will reduce the flow rate from the pump thereby increasing the amount of time it takes to circulate the dirty pond water through the filter. This effectively reduces the maximum pond volume that the filter system can cope with and may mean you will require a larger pump. Please contact us and we would be happy to advise you.

Dissolved oxygen (DO) is a major contributor to water quality. Installing an optimally sized OASE OxyTex Aerator Set will substantially improve water quality and fish and can improve filter performance by up to 25%. See the chart above for improvements in pond volume.

The importance of regular maintenance (cleaning): High flow rate = effective filtering. As the filter media (e.g. foams) remove dirt and waste from the pond, so the friction loss across the foams will increase, thereby reducing the flow rate and the effective performance of the filter. It is therefore essential to keep the filter foams clean.
