The AlphaNANO was developed over 2 years ago. We sought out help from some of our qualified and knowledgeable Contractors, dealers and pond owners, to help us with our testing and give us feed back. In two years of testing we received "0" negative comments. This surpassed even our greatest expectations. Some of these were new pond owners and many were previous owners of different types of bead filters.
Wow what an difference this filter makes!
What makes it different from a bead filter and so desireable?
What we are hearing from others is that:
This filter works as good as a polishing filter as it does a Biological filter!
The AlphaNANO media has about 50% more surface area for Beneficial Bacteria to grow than a Bead Filter has for surface area.
How does it do this?
To answer this we have to understand the difference between bead filters and how they trap solids and how the AlphaNANO accomplishes this task. Bead filters trap solids in the first few inches of the bead pac(causing clogging, flow disruption and pressure rises in the vessel) while the AlphaNANO with its uniquely designed AlphaNANO media stops the debris evenly through out the pac (resulting in greater flow, less head or back pressure, less maintenance.) The polishing ability of the filter is one it's most desirable features, based upon comments that have come into us from the field.
The AlphaNANO media was specially designed for this filter. It is not something borrowed from another industry or use.
Its design is unique in that it was not designed with "cross hairs" as some other specialty types of media use. We left those out because in a static bed the "cross hairs" can collect and hold debris until it becomes anaerobic.
With the AlphaNANO media there are no hidden areas for anaerobic bacteria, to harbor and stagnate, only beneficial bacteria.
Take a look at the AlphaNANO media and you'll see for yourself.
