Channeled swimming pool type filters have media, i.e. sand, diatomaceous earth, gravel etc. that is unsuited for a pond situation. Because of the relatively large particles produced by a pond, i.e. fish mulm, rotting vegetation, leaves and dead algae, a filter with the fine media above, will clog very quickly, sometimes in hours, will not be able to be backwashed effectively and with the pressure of the pump, will  open channels in the media.
  These channels range from the size of pin to the size of a quarter and can be compared to a blood artery. When channeling occurs, the water flows through the channels at a much faster rate than normal and the increased flow will tend to widen the channel and carry some of the previously trapped particles back into the pond. We then have the problem of the pond water not being filtered at all and some of the trapped waste going back into the pond.


 
Swimming pool type pond filters, such as the Predator (tm), get around these problems by careful selection of media and modifying the internal plumbing components to increase your time between and duration of backwashes. As with any system, you can overwhelm the filter with overstocking, overfeeding and infrequent bottom and filter cleanings. Filter systems that suffer from owner neglect, will pay you back with green water, channeling and dead fish.

    Biofalls

    • Biological filtration creating the structure for a waterfall and excellent aeration.

    Bacteria

    • Helps start and maintain a pond's health. It keeps the pond clear by adding to the bacterial colonies on the filters and stones. These colonies rob food from the "pea soup" algae, starving it, resulting in clean, clear water.

    Bogs and Wetland Filtration

    • By far the most effective way to filter larger ponds and even lakes. Duplicates natural processes that remove impurities from rivers and lakes.

    Skimmer

    • Sweeps the pond surface depositing debris into a mesh bag for easy removal. It also acts as the pump chamber.

    Plants

    • Plants are needed to help filter the pond and naturalize the setting. Marginal plants can be planted directly in the gravel, cleaning the pond by using nutrients filtered from the water.

    Gravel and Rock

    • Unlike a smooth pond liner, rock provides surface area for bacteria to colonize and also ultraviolet protection for the liner. Rock also lowers cleaning frequency. A stone bottom looks far more natural and is safer to walk on than exposed slippery rubber liners.
