The in-line design is easy to install with 2 inch disconnect unions on each port. To connect, simply install after the pre-filter that removes or traps debris (Bead filters perform this very well). The sturdy components are all well designed and strong. Each True BiO filter is a pressurized canister permitting installation with endless possibilities.
The orientation of media in the chambers of these filters create fast pathways and slow pathways for the water to move through. The combination of the ceramic with the fast and slow pathways inside the bio-filter is known to grow the most comprehensive range of bacteria for nitrogen cycle conversion. This makes it possible for nitrosomonas, nitrobacters and facultative bacteria to exist and give you the most complete nitrogen cycle possible in a biological filtration system.
Our True BiO Filter comes in 5 different models to fit your pond's needs. The smaller True BiO 5 and 7.5 models offer some pre-filtration and are great for indoor ponds or tanks. The larger True BiO 10, 20 and 30 models offer much more biological surface area which benefits larger ponds, yet require a good pre-filter. We suggest a bead filter prior to models 10, 20 and 30 to trap well enough to prevent clogging debris.
The True BiO model 10 is our most popular model. We only wish every pond had one!
