Tempest Evolution Aqua Pond Filter
Patent Pending Design
The Tempest filter is easy to install and is simple and quick to clean, by way of a unique, patent pending air syphon design.
During the cleaning process, air is drawn into the filter as it empties which causes the water to agitate, effectively cleaning the K+Media.
Innovative Polisher For Ponds
The NEW Tempest Filter is an innovative polishing system for ponds. The Tempest Filter uses our latest filtration media, K+Media, to deliver crystal clear, healthy water.
Designed to be used in conjunction with any filtration system, the Tempest Filter offers additional mechanical and biological filtration. The Tempest Filter can be installed on a variety of set-ups and can be used on quarantine systems or as astandalone filter on smaller ponds up to 5,000 Litres / 1,100 Gallons
How The Tempest Filter Works
Water is pumped up through the Tempest Filter. The K+Media moves to the top of the filter, becoming a mechanical barrier that traps debris as it flows through the system. Waste is trapped in the K+Media until the cleaning cycle dislodges it and it gets flushed away.
Installing the Tempest Filter
There are a number of ways the Tempest Filter can be installed on your pond system.
PLEASE NOTE: The slide valves fitted to the Tempest Filter allow connection to 1½” pressure pipe. If installing the Tempest Filter using flexible hose you will need to fit a reducing sleeve and a 1½” solvent weld stepped hosetail inside each slide valve.
To allow the Tempest Filter to give the best performance, it is important that the flow rate is no more than the 5,000 litres per hour.
Some of the installation examples show aby-pass that will enable you to increase the flow through the pond.
Independently Tested Filter Media
Using Evolution Aqua’s K+Media as the filter media, particles down to one micron can be filtered. On a single pass, testing has proven our media capable of removing all particles down to 25 micron when used at the optimum flow rate. Not only that, K+Media is the result of extensive research and development and is moulded with minerals for faster maturation times.
