Innovative Polisher For Ponds

The NEW Tempest Filter is an innovative polishing system for ponds. The Tempest Filter uses our latest filtration media, K+Media, to deliver crystal clear, healthy water.

Designed to be used in conjunction with any filtration system, the Tempest Filter offers additional mechanical and biological filtration. The Tempest Filter can be installed on a variety of set-ups and can be used on quarantine systems or as a standalone filter on smaller ponds up to 1,320 US Gallons

How the Tempest Works

Water is pumped up through the Tempest Filter. The K+Media moves to the top of the filter, becoming a mechanical barrier that traps debris as it flows through the system. Waste is trapped in the K+Media until the cleaning cycle dislodges it and it gets flushed away.

Installing the Tempest Filter

There are a number of ways the Tempest Filter can be installed on your pond system. Below are some typical installation ideas.

TYPICAL INSTALLATION ON A PRESSURISED SYSTEM

You can install a Tempest Filter on a pressurised system with a K1 Micro Bead, Nexus+, EazyPod. The slide valves on the Tempest Filter enable connection to 1½” pressure pipe. The installation example shown below has a by-pass that will enable you to increase the flow through your pond while maintaining the optimum flow through the Tempest Filter. Installing ball valves on the pipe work will help you regulate the flow. The return from the Tempest and the K1 Micro Bead go back to the pond.

TYPICAL STANDALONE TEMPEST FILTER INSTALLATION

You can install a Tempest Filter on a quarantine system, or a standalone pond up to 5,000 litres, at the side of a pond or above the pond. The slide valves on the Tempest Filter enable connection to 1½” pressure pipe. If installing the Tempest Filter using flexible hose you will need to fit a reducing sleeve (EA Code: M35-050) and a 1½” solvent stepped hosetail (EA Code: HOSETAIL15) inside each slide valve.

TYPICAL INSTALLATION WITH A GRAVITY-FED FILTER

You can install a Tempest Filter after a primary filter on a gravity-fed set-up, such as the Nexus+, and after a UV Clarifier, such as an evoUV. The slide valves on the Tempest Filter enable connection to 1½” pressure pipe. The installation example shown below has a by-pass that will enable you to increase the flow through your pond while maintaining the optimum flow through the Tempest Filter. Installing ball valves on the pipe work will help you regulate the flow. The return from the Tempest can go back to the centre of your Nexus+ or back into the pond.

HOW TO CLEAN TEMPEST FILTER

The Tempest Filter can be cleaned in matter of minutes, by simply turning the pump off, closing slide valves and opening the waste valve tap.
