Ultima II Aqua Filter Series – To support aquatic life whether at an aquaculture facility, backyard pond or large aquarium system it is essential to remove both ammonia and accumulated debris. The most efficient way to accomplish this is by installing an Ultima II Biological Aqua Filter. The patented media has the highest biofilm surface for bacterial growth, these beneficial bacteria convert ammonia into harmless compounds. The dense bed of ridged media traps solids without clumping. Internal jets in the filter are activated during the backwash separating the waste from the media and sending it out the waste line.
The Ultima II Aqua Filter is available in four standard models suitable for ponds from 1,000 to 20,000 gallons capacity takes only minutes to backwash and can handle heavy fish and feed loads. Equipped with ‘cyclonic’ backwashing, Ultima II features Bio-Tube Aqua Media. These media are of tubular design, which aims to protect bacteria while dislodging unwanted debris. Also, lightweight in designed for very high flow rates.
The ‘Y’ shape and the inside wings on the outside affords a protective surface under the backwashing and the company’s patent-pending backwash system will keep the media from clogging. The same properties have been added to this media in three different sizes with random lengths and diameters to avoid stacking, one cubic foot of Ultima II Media is equal to 750 sqft of surface area. Cleaning the filter is done by internal jets. The Ultima II Aqua Filter tested and used by MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) has outperformed the competition. Tested side-by-side against all bead filters on the market the Ultima II filters have been found to be by far, the best, claims the company.
The Ultima II Aqua Filter, which is seeded with bacteria, works like a centrifuge. The valve is rotated to backwash will set the filter into cyclonic motion. A valve located inside the filter closes, which then diverts the water through the jets sending the media spinning out to the walls of the filter, while dislodging the waste, causes it to separate and be sent out through the waste outlet.
The Ultima II Aqua Filter will work with any pump appropriate for the pond in question. The Ultima II’s Bio-Media with its patent-pending design is light enough so that the water from the pond will completely and quickly backwash the filter. Filters can be buried up to the valve top.
Note: Use Appropriate Pump For Filter Size (If you purchase a 4000 Gallon Filter, use a pump that will give you 4000 GPH at your Total Dynamic Head (10′ of pressure head plus vertical head height plus friction head (length and inside diameter size of hose with fittings such as elbows) for the best backwash. In addition, the Ultima II Filters should not be used with pipe dope inline as it will break down the valve of the Ultima Filter and will not be covered under warranty. Teflon tape is recommended.
This is the next generation of filters and one of the best tools for Koi ponds. The Ultima II is specifically engineered to meet the environmental demands of koi ponds.The lightweight media is designed for very high flow rates. There is a patent pending on this tubular media which has low head loss and a very high biofilm surface. The "Y" shape on the inside and wings on the outside affords a protective surface under back washing and our patent pending backwash system will keep the media from clogging. The same properties have been added to this media in three different sizes with random lengths and diameters to avoid stacking. One cubic foot of Ultima II biological filter media is equal to 750 square feet of surface area. Cleaning the filter is done by internal jets.
