Product Description

HydroBead™ Vortex HBV-18 Koi Pond Filter

The HBV-18 Koi Pond Filter’s unique design eliminates the need for expensive, difficult to use, and aggravating air blowers that competing bead filters require for backwashing.


HBV-18 Koi Pond Filter Backwashes With Less Water:

The vertical backwash lateral jet inside the HydroBead™ Vortex HBV-18 koi pond filter reduces backwash time which results in less water use and eliminates the backwash “dead-zones” that occur within other brands of bead filters that feature horizontal backwash laterals.


Polishes Water for Maximum Clarity and Shine:

The super lightweight Styrofoam HydroBead™ media inside this 18″ bead filter cling together under pressure to trap fine particulates down to 100 microns and polish the water during filtering. The HydroBeads easily separate during backwash to release the trapped particulates.
