Ultima Filters are superior to bead filters because of their patent pending bio-tube media which does not clump together like beads do. No need for a blower for back washing!
Super easy to backwash - never get your hands wet again!
Unique filter media allows for high flow rates with minimal back pressure
Compact filter can be buried in ground (up to control head) for easy hiding when used as a pond filter
** Patented Bio-Tube filter media has extremely high surface area (one cu. ft. of media has 750 sq. ft. of surface area) for maximum filtration. This lightweight, non-clogging media is seeded with natural bacteria for quick filter start up after installation.
