The Helix Bio-Mechanical Reactor combines the efficiency of our two favorite filters, The Helix Moving Bed Waterfall Filter and The Helix Bio-Mechanical Waterfall Filter. This filter provides not only great mechanical filtration, but also great biological filtration - the best of both worlds. This filter provides a large open area for lava rock media WITHOUT bags that typically would reduce flow rate.

For best results, use the Bio-Mechanical Reactor wherever total filtration is needed. This filter, coupled with a skimmer, will provide everything you need for high-quality pond filtration with reasonable regular maintenance that is easily accessible outside the pond. For ponds that already have a bog, bead filter, under gravel filter grid or other mechanical filtration, the Moving Bed Waterfall Filter adds amazing biological capability without adding anything to your maintenance routine.
