Aussie saysBest - Our ratings for Laguna pressureflo pond filters

Aussie's observations about Laguna Pressure flo filters

Pressure Flo filters are suitable for: Any pond where filtered water is required. In particular when water is to be pumped to a higher level such as a waterfall or feature. We recommend a gravity filter when Koi or turtles are present
What we liked:  The solid Italian construction. The high wattage of the UV lamps. The clear water guarantee. The cleaning indicator pops up when the filter is in need of cleaning. Every model has a back wash system that is very easy to use.  UV lamp "on" indicator.  Great value for money.
Less than ideal: Pressure filters in general are not ideal for Koi or Turtles, the better option would be a gravity filter, However, if a waterfall is in use with a single pump for both filtering and the waterfall, a pressure filter may be the only option, other than using 2 pumps.

Consider mix and matching different filters to better fit your pond and pocket .... Any of the above filters can be joined together using a tee and hose. Example:  A 10000-UVC with a 14000 gives you a 24000 
The other advantage is that if your pond is is enlarged or if you fish stocking increases you can just simply add a filter

Confused about selecting your pump and filter?

Filter selection

To choose the ideal filter for any pond you must first know the correct environmental flow to maintain ideal water quality for your pond. (Please remember that the pond size alone does not determine the filter or pump size without first taking into account the many environmental and physical factors) 
3 ways to get help to establish flow

  1. Fill in one of our e-mail help forms and let us do all the calculations for you
  2. Give us a call 1800 607 388 for our advice
  3. Do it yourself and use our quick reference flow calculator for rough estimate.
  • Step one: Establish the required flow through the filter keeping in mind waterfall** height if any, or long hose**
  • Step Two: Choose a filter from the chart below (Example if your pond requires a flow through the filter of 3,400 litres per hour, the Pressure Flo 8000 would give the best result)
  • Step Three: Choose a pump, they are listed below in order of quality and suitability

Recommended flow through the filter - litres per hour

3000 6000 10000 14000
Minimum Flow 625 1,250 2,000 3,000
Ideal Flow - See hint 4 below 1,100 2,150 3,400 5,100
Maximum Flow - See hint 4 1,250 2,500 4,000 6,000

What makes a pump that is specifically designed for sending water to a filter (such as the pumps above) superior to a multi purpose pump such as Pondmate
1) The cage design is turtle shell shaped to attract solids from 360 degrees
2) These pumps are designed to run 24/7 year after year
3) They have a vortex impeller capable of handling solids without blocking

Pondmate 6000 DWP##

**Special note, if using a waterfall or a long hose between pump and filter the pump will need to be larger to allow for the reduced flow caused by the head (pumping height, and/or hose length)   If in doubt Fill in one of our e-mail help forms and let us do all the calculations for you.
# A little under size for some pond sizes, but would work if the pond were smaller than the filters maximum volume rating.
##This pump is a little too strong, unless a waterfall over 1m is in place. However, you can never have too much pond flow, so, by releasing water back into the pond through a "Tee" and flow valve added circulation is provided for the pond.

Aussie saysAussie's additional thoughts
Tip 1: When calculating flow, always allow about a 15% flow loss when a pressure filter is used.
Tip 2:Place the pump at the opposite end of the pond to the water return, and in the deepest part of the pond.
Tip 3: Interpet offer a powder to prime filter systems, a great way to hasten biological activity. Interpet Bio start.
Tip 4: Within reason the slower the water passes over the UV lamp and through the filter the better the result. However, you can never have too much pond flow, so, by having a slightly oversize pump and releasing water directly back into the pond or on to a feature or waterfall through a "Tee" with a valve (tap), added circulation is provided for the pond.
Tip 5: Pump - maximum pumping head. The pump supplying the filter must not have a pumping head exceeding 4m (0.4 bar)  Head over 4m could damage the filter and could even burst the container. On the other hand a pump with inadequate head may not provide enough flow through the filter
In a nut shell ....The height difference between the filter lid and a pressure free outlet must not exceed 4metres (0.4 bar). So if the filter was mounted 1m above the pond surface, the pump must not have a maximum pumping height in excess of 5m. Or if mounted 2m above the surface of the pond, the pump must not have a maximum pumping height in excess of 6m.
There is however another factor in head calculations if long hose lengths are used, see "Friction loss in hose" under How to calculate your friction loss if your hose will be more than 3m.
