What is Aqua Ultraviolet Bio-Media?

Water filtration is a necessity when it comes to keeping ponds & aquariums clean of debris. Water filtration systems used for environments like Aquariums, Ponds & other Aquaculture-related environments, use different mechanisms for trapping debris & other unnecessary waste to clear the water, and keep the environment clean for your Fish or water. Filters often use their own set of bio-media that will trap waste and only keep the clean & clear water to pass through the filter.

What is Bio-Media?

Bio-Media or Filter-Media is a term used to describe an object that is placed into the water in order to block debris & changes the quality of the water passing through it. Bio-Media is an important part of a water filtration system because of the way it filters out the waste in the water (like fish waste) and allows clear & clean water to pass through.

What kind of Bio-media should I purchase?

Media is all about design. There are many bio-media designs that have their own functionality and work with certain types of filtration units. We recommend using the Aqua Ultraviolet Bio-Media.

What is Aqua Ultraviolet Bio-Media?

Aqua Ultraviolet Media is a lightweight media, designed for very high flow rate water. The Aqua Ultraviolet Media is designed to be used for the Ultima II Bio-Mechanical Filter, which has model units that can handle & filter ponds of up to 200,000 gallons! Aqua Ultraviolet Media comes pre-seeded with natural bacteria & comes with the purchase of your Ultima II Series filter.

What makes our Media Different.

The tubular Bio-Media has a low head loss and a very high biofilm surface. The “Y” shape on the inside and wings on the outside afford a protective surface under backwashing, and with our patented 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.

The Ultima II tubular bio-media offers the highest surface area for growth of beneficial bacteria. Cleaning the filter is done by internal jets. The Ultima II is also an ideal filter for Aquariums where very high flow rates are desired. Get the Bio-Media you need today by purchasing an Ultima II Series filter!
