Known in the industry as the easiest filter to maintain, the Ultima II Series takes just 5 minutes a week to backwash. Gone are the days of dismantling your filter and scrubbing pads. The Ultima II Bio-mechanical filter, traps and converts fish waste, ammonia, into a substance that is harmless to fish called nitrates. Nitrates can then be used by the plants in the pond.
If Ammonia is left untreated, it can cause serious harm to the Fish. The Ultima II bio-mechanical filter creates an ecosystem for your pond, replicating the natural, beneficial bacteria found in ponds and lakes, ensuring a healthy environment for your fish.
How is the Ultima II Different?
The key to our Ultima II is our patented media which is exclusive to Aqua Ultraviolet. The Aqua Ultraviolet media traps solid waste while also providing a protected growth surface for beneficial bacteria. This biofilm is what converts the ammonia to harmless compounds. Because of our innovative design, the filter media has the most biofilm surface area of any in the industry. One square foot of the Aqua UV filter media has 800 cubic feet of surface area! This media never needs to be replaced and requires no maintenance, just backwash weekly.
Our filters are sturdy, durable units made from heavy-duty material. The Ultima can even be buried up to the valve assembly for concealment if desired. Aqua Ultraviolet is known as the industry standard for dependable pond products. Let us complete the ecosystem in your backyard, and give your fish the healthy natural aquaculture home that they are meant to be in!
