Recommended Pond 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.

 

Media: Round Poly Beads

  • ABF 10 = 3.50 cubic feet
  • ABF 15 = 5.00 cubic feet

 

Construction Materials:

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

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.
 

Maximum Pressure: 50 PSI

Shipping Weight:

  • ABF 10 = 4 boxes weighing 195 lbs total.
  • ABF 15 = 6 boxes weighing 285 lbs total.

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

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.
