PoliGlassBead 17000 Filter is a glass water polishing filter designed for ponds up to 17,000 gallons.
Normally the GC Tek line of filters provide pristine water but what happens during certain times of the year when perhaps run off or spawning may temporarily interrupt the pristine conditions of the pond? This is it, the PoliGlassBead XStream polishing filter.
This filter is designed for those pond keepers that believe that nothing is better than looking into the pond and being able to tell whether a coin is heads or tails at 6' of depth.
What's separates this filter from any other polishing filter on the market is that it uses 2 types of media. It has a thick later of of PoliGlassBeads that are real Glass Beads and a layer of our Black AlphaBio2 Media. Water passes down thru the layer of AlphaBio2 media where larger particles are separated and held in place while the finer particles make their way to the thick layer of PoliGlassBeads where the finer particles are removed. Why is this a big deal? You get to go longer before the filter needs backwashing. PoliGlassBeads don't clog and stick together the way the crushed glass does in some filters. There is a big difference in Glass beads and crushed glass in the way solids are separated and then released during backwash.
Note: The PoliGlassBead XStream polishing filter is not intended for use as a stand alone filter and must be used with one of the other GC Tek filters or any other filter
