In order to preserve a healthy environment in your garden pond the right filtration in conjunction with efficient filter media is essential. Filter media is material that sits inside your pond filter to effectively sieve out all of the debris, sand, dirt and fine particles that will pollute the water and therefore cause problems for your pond life. It is important to ensure that your pond is clean and free of dirt, toxins and bad odours.
There are three types of filter media and these can be used together for a thorough cleaning process. Mechanical media like brushes, sponges and foam work to catch and remove debris and dirt leaving the water cleaner. Biological media is material that uses its surface area to promote the growth of helpful bacteria which feed on and therefore reduce the chemicals released by fish and plant waste. Chemical media utilises additional chemicals like carbon to neutralise bad odours and balance the eco-system of the pond.
