How Does A Pressurized Filter & Pump System Work? – Water Garden Q & A

The process of how a pressurized filter works.

Q: How does a pressurized filter and pump system work? – Jill of Massachusetts

A: Below is the path that water travels in a pressurized filter and pump system:

1. With the filter connected to the pump, water enters the unit through a water inlet.

2. Water then passes along an integrated UV lamp, where it is exposed to ultraviolet rays that inhibit the growth of planktonic algae (green water algae) organisms. (This can also happen at a later step depending on the pressurized filter you use)

3. It then passes through the mechanical & biological filtration stage, consisting of foam filters that intercept and trap dirt and debris. Also, beneficial bacteria will harbor here to help keep the water healthy.

4. Filtered water finally returns to the pond and the process is repeated.
