Product Description


AquaForte EB Series - EconoBead Filter EB50

The economical answer to imitation filters, made by the Beadfilter experts!
The Econo Bead filters have a strong quality polypropylene vessel and are standard equipped with:



Water enters into the tank (A) under pressure from the pump. The solids are collecting in the centre of the filter, waiting to be hydraulically purged out under pressure from the pump. All you have to do is open the sludge separation valve (B) with the pump running and the filter in it's normal filtration mode and the heavier solids are evacuated in just a couple of seconds. What does all of this mean? The most unique, efficient filter of its kind. An efficient filter doesn’t hold solids, it gets rid of them! Now that the water is in the tank it is forced slowly upward in the vessel through millions of beads about 2-3mm in size. On these beads are billions of nitrifying bacteria and these hungry bacteria are consuming vast amounts of ammonia, nitrites, etc. and performing what is known as nitrification. This is how we actually have clean, healthy water is due to the work these minute organisms are performing. Water continues to flow upward through the beads and exits out of the vessel via the top spray bar (C). This water then continues into the multi port valve and depending on the setting on the multi port (FILTER), the water continues then to the pond.

The EconoBead® series have another unique feature: the Blower (D). This blower is mounted on a special air check valve. It is important that the valve be in the rinse position for the blower agitation of the beads. When the blower is active the beads and debris are dispersed throughout the interior of the filter. This breaks up the beads and releases the trapped particles. This debris then can easily be backwashed out to waste through the spray bar (C). After the RINSE cycle with air we perform a backwash in which the water enters at C en leaves the filter through A. After the backwash there will be another RINSE cycle but with water instead of air. This takes any remaining debris and sends it to waste (from A to C), instead of sending a cloud of dirt back to the pond.



Water enters the Beadfilter at (A) and goes upward through the beads and exits out of the vessel via the top spray bar (C) to return to the pond. “RECIRCULATE” : With the “RECIRCULATE” feature you can bypass your filter and flow the water from pond to pump to multiport and back to pond. This comes in handy when you are treating the pond. “WASTE”: allows the water to bypass the filter and go directly to waste, such as when you are performing a backwash cycle. You can also use the waste setting to vacuum out your pond without the garbage going into your filter, it bypasses the filter via the multiport and goes out to waste. “RINSE”: The first time we use the RINSE feature to wash the beads with the blower which forces huge amounts of air into the vessel and since air rises in water, the beads are broken apart by this action, making a thorough backwash easy to accomplish. After the backwash function we use the RINSE feature again but now with water instead of air. It is impossible to get every little bit of debris out of a filter and this causes these minute particles to exit in the waste line instead of going back into the pond. “BACKWASH”: In this position we let the pump run until the water in sight glass is clear (normally 1 to 2 minutes). The water enters the filter from the top spray bar (C) and exits the vessel at (A) and goes out to waste. “CLOSED”: Valve closed. Never use this position with the pump running.
