F100 & F200 Livingponds Filters
The F100 and F200 include all the filter media you will need. Springflo is one of the best filter media on the market and this media does not inhibit water flow. The water from your pump will not be restricted and you will maintain an oxygenated biological environment. They come with a top filter pad for microfiltration and polishing the water.
The F100 and F200 are designed with bottom drain capability. When you install a bottom drain to the filter, you can back-flush the entire filter. The Springflo will drop filtered debris out of the waste line. You can now clean your biological filter with pond water, saving the bacteria instead of killing it with chlorinated water.
The top inflow eliminates the use of restrictive and expensive and expensive check valves. The water is then funneled into the bottom and funneled into a vortex. This vortex distributes oxygenated water throughout the filter media.
Adding Filtration Capacity
Savio Livingponds Filters harness the natural dynamics of moving water. Adding filtration capacity is as simple as connecting filters together. Use 3" flexible PVC pipe from the skimmer to the waterfall area. Split the flow with a T fitting, reduce the hose size to 1.5" and plumb filters! With this one easy step, you will be able to nearly double your filtration capacity!

Each roll contains 180 square feet of surface area, suitable for up to 3 cubic feet of filter volume. Simply hold above the filter and start unwinding media from inside the center. It dispenses itself! High performance, patented, clog, and channel resistant. Springflo Bio Filter Media are included in every Livingponds filter.
