Product Description

Matala's Biostep 10 is an expandable gravity filter with a cross flow design that easily traps debris at high flow rates. The included Matala filter pads are staggered in density to provide the highest level of mechanical filtration. They also have 200 sq. ft. for beneficial bacteria to colonize. Beneficial bacteria outcompete algae for nutrients, reducing the growth of algae and increasing overall pond health. The Biosteps 10 base system is 23 3/16" x 15" x 20 3/16" H x 15" W x 23 3/16" L. It has a 1", 1.25" and 1.5" universal barb fitting and a 2 year limited warranty. 

The optional spillway weir creates a waterfall, producing a beautiful accent while improving water flow and helping to aerate the pond.

The optional UV clarifier is available in 9 watts, 13 watts or 18 watts. The ultraviolet light destroys green water algae. Pond UV clarifiers require a slower water flow to be effective. Refer to the table below for pump flow and pond size recommendations. The UV clarifier body and transformer have a 1 year limited warranty.
