Finally a low cost, high performance filter with all of the quality and dependability you have come to expect from GCTek. Just take a look at these features:
The BIOTEK media is so unique, there is no other exactly like it. Designed to protect sensitive beneficial bacteria during backwash, while providing huge amounts of surface area for the bacteria to live and prosper.
The BIOTEK filter utilizes a totally unique backwashing jetting system we call the "FLUFF-N-SPIN" system. Not only does the internal design of the filter allow for a "FLUFFING" of the media during backwash, but spins the bed and each individual piece of the BIOTEK media. This causes the media to get rid of any old bio floc that might be clinging to each piece, while holding on to the precious beneficial bacteria with in the filter. There is no other like it. Due to the "FLUFF-N-SPIN" agitation system and the design of the media, these units backwash beautifully using any low amperage koi pond pump.
Two speed pumps are not necessary with the BIOTEK filter.
Higher quality Fiberglass tanks at plastic filter prices.
Complete with 6 position Multiport valve that allows you to backwash, bypass to waste, bypass to recirculate, rinse. You can even use this filter to vacuum out your pond with the addition of a vacuum hose to your pump.
