Filtration is critical to maintaining the integrity of your pond and keeping it clean. A properly installed filtration system will cycle your pond's water, clean it, remove toxins, and distribute oxygen and nutrients throughout your waterscape. Without filtration, your pond's water would quickly become stagnant and stratified, creating a pond environment harmful or fatal to fish and other aquatic life. Keeping the water healthy and balanced with a filter and pump helps maintain optimal conditions for your pond and its wildlife.
Carefully choose a filter best suited for your pond's needs. For help choosing the appropriate filter, check out the
