The ECO Pond Chip is a new development in the field of (moving bed) filter media. ECO Pond Chip its origins in the professional wastewater treatment but has been further developed for use in ponds. The green chip has a diameter of 20mm and a thickness of 1mm. Due to the unique structure of the surface it has a specific surface area for bacteria of 3500m² / m³ which an average is 5 to 7 times greater than the conventional bio-rings in moving bed filter technology! This ensures that one, but also needs a small amount of these chips in comparison with traditional carrier material.
ECO Pond Chip is made of new, food grade, PE and contains absolutely no recycled materials. The ECO Pond Chip is also extremely light in weight so that there is very little energy is needed to move them (with air and / or water). This can significantly reduce the use of air pumps!
Usage: ECO Pond Chip serves as a biological filter medium after mechanical filtration. The filter chamber can be filled up to 60% with ECO Pond Chips. The chips can also be added for extension / reinforcement of existing moving bed filters. Because of this biological filter capacity can be upgraded without conversion!
ECO Pond Chips are available in filter mesh bags with ± 14 liters. This 14-liter 50m² / m surface for bacteria, which is sufficient for an average fish stock in 20m³ pond water. Because the medium initially repels water, it is recommended that first bag to hang a number of days in the pond / filter before being added to the moving bed filter.
