Aussie's Observations about  Matala Gravity Pond Filter

Budget • Good • Better • Best • Superior

Any pond without a waterfall or if with a waterfall if the filter is placed at the top so water can gravity feed from the filter.

Great value for money. Very well made, excellent quality. It has many of the features of more expensive filters including a high outlet so half the filter can be buried if needed, provided the cleaning drain outlet is not used.

Based on the price point, not much. the features match the price.
