What Does a Water Vortex Do?
A water vortex inside your filter means that you'll have cleaner, healthier water than all the other brands of filters that don't have a vortex. Why? Because a vortex "spins" water around an axis, and spinning water causes particulate matter to settle into the center of the vortex.
Do a "Vortex Test" yourself!
Take an ordinary round 5 gallon bucket. Fill it with water. Sprinkle a pinch or two of sandy dirt into the water that's inside the round 5 gallon bucket. Now stir the water in a circular motion with your hand or a stick.
The following photos demonstrate what will happen:
|Place some sandy soil into a 5 gallon bucket||Use your hand to start the water swirling||Swirl the water clockwise or counter clockwise||Whirling water forces the debris to the middle||A water vortex forces debris to the center|
A Water Vortex Helps Clean Your Water and is Why
Russell Professional Filters Are So Efficient
See how the soil and particulates settled into the bottom center of the bucket? You just witnessed the power of a vortex. Spinning water causes debris to move to the center of the vortex where gravity then drops it downward and to the middle of a round vessel.
This is why so many of Russell Professional Pond Products are created around the principles of a water vortex.
