Savio Springflo Bio Filter Media
This is not just another plastic media - it's hybrid technology! You are looking at the world's most advanced bio filter media. The remarkable, embossed green coils of Savio Springflo(tm) provide more surface area for beneficial, waste-purifying microorganisms than any other product of similar volume. Patented design resists clogging, channelling, and encourages rapid bacterial growth for healthier, cleaner ponds and water gardens.
Features and Benefits
- Better Filtration - Dimpled ribbon creates millions of surfaces for bacteria.
- Works Best When Dirty - Designed to filter while dirty without clogging.
- Encourages Living Bacteria - Stops constant cleaning. Great for living bacteria.
- Easy to Maintain - Just jiggle media and drain dirty water.
- Each box contains 180 square feet of surface area.
- Suitable for up to 3 cubic feet of filter volume.
- Each box is enough to filter approximately 1000 gallons.
Savio Springflo's embossed pattern provides over 180 sq. ft. of active surface
area per box. Easily self-dispenses - simply hold above filter and start unwinding
from center. While other media have a short usable life (they work best off
the shelf) - the "loose coil" effect created by Savio Springflo(tm)
fosters an ideal environment for waste filtering - it actually works best as
it gets dirtier. Plus, it's very easy to clean - just don't use soaps, hot water,
or chemicals, as they can harm the beneficial bacteria thriving to keep your
pond clean, naturally. Savio Springflo(tm) is a special formulation of embossed
polypropylene and calcium carbonate that lasts for an entire year. Plus, it's
an easy upgrade for any old style filter still using filtermat, gravel, bio-balls,
What is Springflo?
Springflo, is a highly versatile and effective filter medium ideally suited for all cold water recirculating systems and water gardening applications. It provides a dimpled ribbon surface on which beneficial (nitrifying) bacteria grows. These bacteria convert harmful ammonia producted by fish into relatively harmless nitrate.
Springflo is made from a composite of polypropylene and calcium carbonate. Bacteria grows on this media very quickly and are able to maintain secure and thriving colonies. To maximize the surface area, the material is formed into very thin ribbon. Then the surface area is further increased (over 50%) by embossing with a diamond pattern. This process provides millions of "dimples" to assist the settling and colonization of nitrifying living bacteria. Unlike many media, all of the surface area on Springflo can be colonized by bacteria without clogging. The entire filter core is therefore potentially always active. Springflo increases filter efficiency, reduces filter size requirements, significantly reduces cleaning cycles, and plays an integral part in maintaining a living pond.
Free from Clogging
Springflo is virtually uncloggable. In fact, it runs best with minimal interference from the user. A light agitation of the media while draining the filter chamber dislodges debris while allowing living bacteria to remain attached. Lightly rinse the media with pond water after draining the chamber, close the drain valve and restart the system. No further maintenance is required.
