The Bio-Mech Submersible Prefilter provides mechanical and biological filtration. It works with any style of pump, preventing the pump from taking in large debris and possibly clogging. (Bio-Mech models 900 and 1200 require a pump with a threaded intake). Pump is not included.
Fitting inside the submersible prefilter's polyethylene housing, the included 2 inch thick filter pad traps algae particles and other debris. It also allows the growth of beneficial bacteria, which transform ammonia from fish waste into harmless nitrate.
Models 200, 600 and 800 of this prefilter are each round and designed for the pump you provide to sit inside, with the filter pad above the pump. Models 900 and 1200 are boxes made for pumps with inline inlets that can be connected to their housings. The box type prefilter models include adapter fittings for different pump styles; no adapter is needed for Cal pumps.
