Recommended Pond Size:

    -Advantage 5 Bead Filter is good for ponds up to 5,000   gallons in size.
    -Advantage 10 Bead Filter is good for ponds up to 10,000   gallons in size.
    -Advantage 15 Bead Filter is good for ponds up to 15,000   gallons in size.

Note: Oversizing the filter for the pond will reduce how often you will need to backwash the filter.

Maximum Pressure: 50 PSI

Recommended Flow: 25 GPM – 80 GPM

-Over 80 GPM may force small particles through the
  filter and slightly reduce the clarity of your water. With
  very high flow systems, consider bypassing the filter
  with excessive water flow.

Head Pressure:

    – 30 GPM = 1.2 ft of head
    – 40 GPM = 3.1 ft of head
    – 50 GPM = 5.5 ft of head
    – 60 GPM = 8.3 ft of head
    – 70 GPM = 10.4 ft of head
    – 80 GPM = 13.4 ft of head

Head Pressure Note:

If the pond requires over 70 gallons per minute, consider installing two smaller filters. Dividing the flow between the two filters will greatly reduce the head pressure of the whole system. (see 15,000 gallon Plug and Play System)

Blower:

    – 2HP
    – 8.2 amps @110 Volts
    – Use only when pump(s) is off during   backwash cycle.

Construction Materials:

    – Fiberglass Tank
    – Isoplast Top Closure Lid
    – Rigid Plastic Base
    – Metal Blower
    – PVC Multiport Control Valve with 2 inch in/out   openings.

Media: Round Poly Beads

    – ABF 5   = 2 boxes (2.25 cubic feet)
    – ABF 10 = 3 boxes (3.50 cubic feet)
    – ABF 15 = 4 boxes (5.00 cubic feet)

(ABF 5 & 10 come with one box of beads pre-installed in the tank.)

– Filter should be filled to the bottom of the   upper bulkhead when tank is empty of water.   Over filling the tank with media will greatly   reduce the filters performance.
