Filtration Q&As

 

General

How do I clean my pond filter?

NEVER clean your pond filter with tap water as this kills essential bacteria. The simple way is to rinse the filter media or foams in a bucket of pond water to remove the heavy organic waste - they do not need to be sparkling clean.

How do I store my Inpond during winter?

The Inpond can be run during the winter, however care should be taken to make sure is it fully immersed and cannot freeze solid. If you do not wish to keep the unit running during the winter, please follow the annual maintenance procedure in the instruction booklet and store frost free in the house or garage until spring. Please note that by removing the filter you will destroy all the good bacteria needed to process fish waste and will need to treat the pond as if it were new, once returned to the pond.
