Grande koi pond filter with vertical backwash lateral

HBV-36 Koi Pond Filter Backwashes
With Less Water:

The vertical backwash lateral jet inside the HydroBead™ Vortex HBV-36 koi pond filter reduces backwash time which results in less water use and eliminates the backwash “dead-zones” that occur within other brands of bead filters that feature horizontal backwash laterals.




The HBV-36 grande koi pond filter’s unique design eliminates the need for expensive, difficult to use, and aggravating air blowers that competing bead filters require for backwashing.
