Pond Filter: Laguna PowerFlo 1000 External Biological Filter

Pond Filter

Laguna PowerFlo 1000

External Biological Filter

For ponds up to 1000 gallons, this spillway produces a 14-1/2” wide waterfall spillway. Solid, professional grade fiberglass construction. Includes foam filter. Can be installed in-ground or above-ground. Includes a 1-1/2” threaded bulkhead fitting. Bio media and pump not included.

How the filter spillway works Water enters the filter spillway at the bottom of the unit and passes through the coarse media pad (included). The filter pad performs mechanical filtration, capturing dirt and debris. The pad also harbors friendly bacteria, which performs biological filtering. The water then passes through the biomedia (included), which effectively performs biological filtration. The filtered water then returns to the pond via the spillway.

  • For 1-1/2” non-kink hosing, use a Laguna PT-1794 Connector.
  • For hosing with a diameter other than 1-1/2”, use an appropriately sized connector with a 1-1/2” threaded end.

Installation Instructions

Required equipment (not included):

  • Circulating pump, such as a Laguna Max-Flo or PowerJet pump
  • Flexible hosing, such as Laguna non-kink hosing, which is specifically designed for use in ponds and is safe for fish and plants. The length of the hosing must be sufficiently long enough to extend from the pump to the filter spillway
  1. Rinse the filter pad and biological filter media. Note that the biological filter media comes in a mesh bag for convenient installation and maintenance. Do not remove it from the bag. Install it as is, in the filter spillway.
  2. Place the filter pad and biological filter media in the filter spillway (as illustrated in Fig. 1), with the filter pad placed at the bottom of the unit and the bag of biological filter media placed on top of the filter pad.
  3. Install the filter spillway in the desired location, at the spot where you want the waterfall to begin. Ensure that the spillway faces the pond. The unit can be installed in or above the ground.
  4. IMPORTANT: The pond liner should be attached to the front end of the unit, underneath the spillway ). We recommend using double-sided seaming tape for pond liners to ensure a lasting adhesion. Place flagstone or boulders to camouflage the liner and stabilize the filter spillway.
  5. Attach the hosing to the output of the pump and connect it to the bulkhead located at the intake of the filter spillway (as illustrated in Fig. 1).

Maintenance Instructions

  • When the filter pad shows signs of being clogged, remove it from the filter spillway and thoroughly rinse in a bucket of pond water. Note: remove the biomedia above it first.
  • Rinse the filter pad twice a month and replace it every pond season for best results.
  • The biological media should not be disturbed until it must be replaced or rinsed.
  • We recommend replacing 50% of the biological media at one time.

At the end of the pond season:

  • Remove and discard the filter pad and biomedia
  • Rinse out the filter spillway thoroughly

WINTERIZING

  • The filter spillway can remain outdoors
  • Winterize the pump as per manufacturer’s recommendations
