Hydro Vortex™ easy to clean waterfall filters feature an internal vortex for heavy solids removal, a bio filter stage for metabolizing dissolved organics, and Hydro FilterSilk™ media for superior water polishing. Hydro Vortex™ waterfall filters let you spend more time enjoying your pond or pondless waterfall and less time cleaning it! No disassembly required for cleaning as with all "annually cleaned" waterfall filters! The patented design backwashes the bio media within the filter and out the included drain kit.

Can you see the Hydro Vortex™ Waterfall Filter in this photo? The filter's design has both a lower, and upper grate that hold the Hydro FilterSilk™ bio media inside. This allows you to place stones directly on the upper grate to completely hide the filter! It simply appears to be a natural water spring welling up through the stones.

Hydro Vortex™ waterfall filters combine high surface area Hydro FilterSilk™ bio media, a vortex solids separator, settling cone with a bottom drain for complete and efficient backwashing. Hydro Vortex™ waterfall filters do not require disassembly, blowers or air pumps for backwashing.

Biological waterfall filters – of any kind or brand –  that are not periodically back-flushed will eventually plug with fish waste, mulm and detritus (the build-up of fish and bacterial waste that looks like brown goop).

If the fish waste, mulm and detritus isn’t periodically back-flushed from a waterfall filter it can clog the filter media – no matter what type. Clogged filter media can cause the water to start “channeling” around the filter media within the filter.  This means that water is finding a path of least resistance around the clogged media.

Water that channels around the filter media inside typical waterfall filters isn't being filtered.  Water passing around the media through channels causes other areas within the filter to have stagnant, non-moving, oxygen-deprived water that encourage anaerobic conditions.  Hydro Vortex™ waterfall filters solve these problems for you.
