AlphaONE Filters are the industry standard when it comes to Koi pond filtration. Featuring Alpha BioONE bio media, these revolutionary pond filters allow you to run for longer periods of time without diminished flow rates caused by debris.
AlphaONE Filters feature AlphaBioONE Media. This revolutionary media does not clog like other filter medias on the market, which allows your filter to run for longer periods of time without diminished flowrates due to debris. AlphaBioONE media was designed specifically for use in AlphaONE Filters and is not used by any other filter on the market. AlphaONE Filters utilize the AquaSwirl Internal Vortex spinning design that spins heavier solids to the center of the bottom of the vessel. This results in a filter that doesn't load up with solids, greatly improving filter performance and lessening the maintenance workload. When a filter "loads up" it ceases to perform at its peak performance. Heavier solids are then spun to the center where a calm area exists. The solids wait there until the operator opens the AquaBead Sludge Drain Valve. This is opened with the pump running, causing the solids to be purged out to waste under pressure from the pump.
This unique feature of the AquaBead enables it be an extremely efficient filter. An efficient filter does not hold solids -- it gets rid of them! Opening the valve for just a few seconds is all that is needed. The specially chosen union ball valve is designed so that in a few years should the ball valve seize up, it can easily be removed, cleaned, or simply replaced as needed. No need to get out the hacksaw and start cutting with the AquaBead. AquaBead Filters are designed to provide 100% customer satisfaction not only when new, but years down the road when service is needed. Bead filters are close to perfect, some more than others, but one problem no one has addressed until now is how to keep the bacteria alive in the filter in case you need to do a medical bypass or in case your pump should fail you.
The AquaBead conquers this dilemma with the AlphaONE Life Support System. This life support system known as "ALISS" will keep the bacteria alive indefinitely. On the front of the multiport valve is a special one way valve that will allow air in, but keep water from seeping out. With the water pump shut down, just slip an airline from your koi pond air pump onto the barbed fitting on the front of the Multiport valve and life giving oxygen is pumped into the tank for the bacteria to survive, while the beads are gently being tumbled within the filter to make sure all of the bacteria get a "breath of fresh air". This eliminates the need to have to "cycle" the filter again. Another AquaBead 1st. Another item that shows long range customer satisfaction commitment is the Clear Union Spring Check Valve located right under the blower.
If you will notice the spring check valve is a large 2" unit for maximum flow and has unions built into the valve. Why is this special? If you should ever have to replace the spring check valve, it is no big deal. Just unscrew the top and bottom of the valve, remove the valve body, replace with a new body and re-hand tighten the two unions. Total time- maybe 2 minutes. No frustration with getting out the hacksaw again. This is just one more example of how AquaBead Filters provide superior value and performance over comparable filters on the market.
