AquaForte filters for clean, healthy pond water

Pond filters keep ponds clean, providing healthy water for your fish. Especially if you have fish in your pond it is important that the water should be properly filtered. If waste materials are not removed from the water to a sufficient extent, the water in the pond will become turbid and unhealthy.

Prevent your pond from becoming turbid

You can prevent a pond from becoming turbid by selecting the correct filter system. There are several ways of filtering pond water. Mechanical filtration filters the coarse, floating debris out of the water. With biological filtration useful bacteria convert the waste materials in the pond into harmless substances. AquaForte has a wide range of filter systems that keep your pond clean and healthy.

In autumn in particular, garden waste that has blown into the pond is responsible for polluting the water.
