Ultima II Aqua Filter Series – To support aquatic life whether at an aquaculture facility, backyard pond or large aquarium system it is essential to remove both ammonia and debris. The most efficient way to accomplish this is by installing an Ultima II Biological Aqua Filter. The media has very high biofilm surface for bacterial growth, these beneficial bacteria convert ammonia into harmless compounds. The dense bed of ridged media traps solids without clumping. The backwash cycle activates the internal jets which separates the waste from the media and pushes it through the waste line.

The Ultima II Aqua Filter is available in four standard models suitable for ponds from 1,000 to 20,000 gallons capacity takes only minutes to backwash and can handle heavy fish and feed loads. Equipped with ‘cyclonic’ backwashing, Ultima II features Bio-Tube Aqua Media. These media are of tubular design, which aims to protect bacteria while dislodging unwanted debris. Also, lightweight in designed for very high flow rates.

The ‘Y’ shape and the inside wings on the outside affords a protective surface under the backwashing. The patent-pending backwash system will keep the media from clogging. The internal jets clean the filter


The Ultima II Aqua Filter works like a centrifuge. The valve rotated to backwash will set the filter into cyclonic motion. A valve located inside the filter closes, which then diverts the water through the jets sending the media spinning out to the walls of the filter. This dislodges the waste, causing it to separate and be sent out through the waste outlet.

The Ultima II Aqua Filter will work with any pump appropriate for the pond in question. The Ultima II’s Bio-Media is light enough so that the water from the pond will completely and quickly backwash the filter.
