filter system consists of a 5’ pre-formed cone-bottom, cylindrical pre-filter (settling tank) which
is gravity fed from the pond bottom drains and skimmer Via 4” PVC drain
lines. The main pump (1/4 hp Wave) picks up the water from the of the
pre-filter and runs through the filter (Ultima ll, 4000 Bead Filter)
back to the pond and waterfall (regulated by two separate valves ).
1 ½ hp Whisperflo pump is set up as an option for
backwash of the Ultima ll and/or running the waterfall for more water
volume for effect. However, majority of the time, the ¼ hp Wave pump
is used for backwashing the filter on a weekly basis.
The pond system also have a Aqua Ulterviolet 80 Watt UV light mounted
from the return water line of the Ultima filter back to the pond and
