HydroSieve™ Compact Pond Sieve
Pre-Filter For Ponds and Pondless Water Features
Capture Debris with Maximum Efficiency
For koi ponds: This compact pond sieve pre-filter captures fish waste and debris from koi pond bottom drains for easy removal. Placed before the pump, it improves the overall health and appearance of the pond by keeping the pump from passing fish waste and debris to the biological filter, maximizing bio-filtration efficiency.
For pondless water features: This compact pond sieve pre-filter captures debris for easy removal from pondless water features. Removing debris from pondless waterfall features naturally reduces algae growth and helps maintain clean, clear water.

The HydroSieve™-PF pond sieve is a dual purpose unit
For ponds - it is a super efficient and compact bottom drain pre-filter. The HydroSieve™-PF captures fish waste and submerged organics before the the pump. This extends the life of your pump and reduces your cost of ownership. By capturing debris for easy removal before the pump can grind it up and pass it to your biological filter - your filter will perform more efficiently. This not only protects your pump - it provides you more time between backwashes - giving you more time to enjoy your pond with less time maintaining it! You'll have a much cleaner pond and your koi and pond fish will thank you!
For Pondless Water Features - it is a super efficient and compact pre-filter that replaces the traditional gravel basin pre-filter. The HydroSieve™-PF captures leaves, lawn clippings, weed seeds, dead worms, insects, bird poop - and all other organics that fall or get wind-blown into your pondless water features. By capturing all the organics for easy removal ...
Your pondless water feature will have
DRASTICALLY less algae
than gravel basin based pondless features!
The HydroSieve™-PF also drastically reduces the cost of owning a pondless water feature because it not only reduces algaecide costs, but protects your pump from the eventual clogged gravel basin. It also completely eliminates the possibility you'd need a pondless Basin-Ectomy!
The HydroSieve™- PF includes a stainless steel filter basket that is constructed of stainless steel wire and stainless steel filter cloth. It is reinforced with stainless steel rods and and stainless steel sheet metal. To make it "Dry-Hands" serviceable - it includes a stainless steel handle that is above the water line to make sure you can easily grab it.
The HydroSieve™- PF includes an internal water inlet design that creates an internal water vortex within the filter medium.
A water vortex is swirling water that cause debris to settle to the bottom middle of the filter. This vortex water motion is at the heart of the patented Hydro Vortex™ waterfall filters and the super efficient HydroBead Vortex™ koi pond bead filters.
Swirling water within the HydroSieve™ - PF forces the debris to the center bottom of the stainless steel filter basket (as seen in the videos above) that keeps water flowing through the rest of the filter basket without clogging. This provides you more time between cleanings - giving you more time to enjoy your pond or pondless water feature while spending less time maintaining it.
The HydroSieve™-PF is an affordable pond sieve– costing a fraction of conventional pond sieves. Conventional pond sieves can cost into the thousands of dollars. The HydroSieve™ - PF features performance and flow rates rivaling the large pond sieves and completely unequaled in a compact pond sieve, all for a reasonable price.
HydroSieve™-PF Pond Sieve is easier to clean than any other pond sieve. Simply remove the stainless steel filter basket by grasping the handle above the water line and rinse the basket. Dry-Hands Servicing means you never have to put your hands down into the water or hand remove captured debris as you do with other pond sieves. Does not require a secondary drain pipe for cleaning as do other pond sieves.
For pond bottom drain pre-filtering, install the HydroSieve™-PF pond sieve between the bottom drain and the centrifugal pump. This will capture all fish waste and other debris from the bottom drain and prevent it from reaching the pump. This prevents the pump from passing the fish waste and debris to your bio filter. Removing fish waste and other debris with this compact pond sieve prior to your pump and bio filter creates much less burden on your bio filter and allows it to perform more efficiently.
Pondless Water Feature Pre-Filtering Applications
For pondless water feature pre-filtering, install the HydroSieve™ - PF sieve filter in front of the HydroChamber™ Pump Vault/Water Storage Tank. The duo of the HydroSieve™ - PF and HydroChamber™ is the most unique, versatile, and easy to clean pondless system ever! It is known as the “Ultimate Pondless System”.
The HydroSieve™ - PF pond sieve is the only pre-filter for pondless water features. Similar to pre-filtering bottom drains in fish pond applications, the HydroSieve™ - PF captures leaves, tree needles, blossoms, grass clippings, sand granules, and all other debris that can fall or blow into a pondless water feature. By removing this debris before it promotes algae growth, the pondless water feature will be cleaner and fresher.
With The Most Design Options you have maximum creative possibilities. The Ultimate Pondless System is the combination of the HydroSieve™ - PF compact pond sieve and the HydroChamber™ Pump Vault Water Storage Tank. Together, they provide you total creative design freedom. The components are modular, which means that they can be connected together, or set apart. They can be installed next to the water feature, or away from it. The Ultimate Pondless System can be used with waterfalls, streams, rock columns, or fountains.
Save Time, Money, and Space with the HydroSieve™-PF and HydroChamber™. The HydroSieve™-PF is the only dedicated pondless water feature pre-filter available. The HydroChamber™ is a water storage tank and pump vault combined in one convenient unit. These two units together save you time and money when building a pondless water feature.
By eliminating the need for the conventional pondless waterfall gravel-filled basin, you’ll enjoy a faster installation time and lower cost, with much less physical effort required. If you’re installing a pondless waterfall kit yourself, less digging will do your back good. If you’re paying someone to install a pondless waterfall for you, the less time they spend digging the lower the labor cost will be.
The HydroSieve™-PF and HydroChamber™ eliminate the large excavation, underlayment, liner, pump vault, matrix blocks, and river rock required by the conventional pondless water feature basin.
Modular Components provide you with more design options than ordinary pondless systems. The HydroSieve™-PF and HydroChamber™ can be installed together, or separated. They can be installed next to or away from your pondless water feature.
The combination of HydroSieve™-PF and HydroChamber™ give you complete pondless waterfall design freedom. Whatever your pondless design, the HydroSieve™-PF pondless pre-filter helps you keep it clean. No other compact pond sieve provides pondless pre-filtering capabilities.
Conventional pondless waterfall kits must always have the basin and pump vault at the end of the pondless waterfall. Conventional pondless waterfalls all use river rock and pebbles as the pre-filter. The rock and pebbles capture leaves and debris …. but how do you clean it? …… By HAND!
Compare cleaning the HydroSieve™-PF pondless pre-filter with conventional pondless waterfalls. The river rock and pebbles that act as the pre-filter for conventional pondless waterfalls can only be cleaned by hand. The Ultimate pondless waterfall with the HydroSieve™-PF pondless pre-filter is so much easier to clean. There really is no comparison!
The Most Versatile Compact Pond Sieve
Conventional Large Pond Sieves Require a Lot of Room and
Disrupt the Look of Your Pond While Costing ALOT More!
Conventional Ponds Sieves:
- Large in size
- Can only be installed above ground
- Must be installed near the pond
- Disrupt the look of a pond
- Charge extra for lids
- Difficult to install
- Difficult to clean
- Look awful in the landscape
- Can not be used for pre-filtering pondless water features
When you compare pond sieves you must compare prices and sizes. Multiple HydroSieve™ - PF compact pond sieves can fit inside conventional large pond sieves! Large pond sieves’ average dimensions typically are 36″ x 30″ x 20″.
Conventional large pond sieves require a lot of room, must be installed above ground, and disrupt the look of your koi pond - not to mention they're an eyesore in the landscape. The HydroSieve™ - PF compact pond sieve, when installed in the ground, requires as much room as an irrigation valve box, while conventional large pond sieves require as much room (or more!) than a full sized wheelbarrow.
Conventional pond sieves can only be installed above ground and in full view. They are gravity fed, so they must be near the pond or they won't work properly. Do YOU want to see one of these giant eyesores near YOUR pond?
How Do You Clean a Conventional Pond Sieve?
To properly compare pond sieves, you also have to ask: "How do I clean it?" Conventional pond sieves do a good job of capturing fish poop, dead worms, and submerged debris - but how do you clean it out of the pond sieve? Conventional pond sieves are large - as you can see from the photos - and you'll have to reach your hand down into them to remove all this gunk. What do you think this smells like?
We do sell shoulder length gloves if you need them! Just sayin'.
Another thing to consider is that conventional pond sieves don't come with a lid! You have to pay extra for a lid - and they're already very expensive! If you don't pay extra for a lid, you get to look at this whenever you're looking at your pond! Don't forget to add the cost of shoulder length gloves!
Compare Pond Sieves: Compare price, compare size, compare what's included, compare where they can be installed, compare ease of installation, compare what the installation looks like, and compare ease of cleaning. You'll start to understand the brilliance and value of the HydroSieve™-PF Compact Pond Sieve!
Look at the conventional pond sieve closely - the camera doesn't lie. If you opt to buy one of these, do you want to see these on the side of your pond? Do YOU want to clean them?

The HydroSieve™ - PF features performance and flow rates rivaling conventional pond sieves and is completely unequaled in a compact pond sieve, all for a reasonable price.
Conventional pond sieves are extremely large, cumbersome, and most don’t include lids. Not only are the conventional pond sieves large and unattractive, they can only be installed above ground in full view. Unless installed inside a shed or shelter – at additional expense – the large and unsightly pond sieves disrupt the look of your koi pond.
Compare hiding HydroSieve™-PF compact pond sieves in the landscape with the large, unsightly, obtrusive pond sieves. The HydroSieve™ compact pond sieve is installed underground and out of site. The inconspicuous lid resembles an ordinary irrigation valve box within the landscape.
