The lake water is pumped to the closed pressure filter and passes through the filter materials and the UVC lamp; in this way the dirt is retained and the floating unicellular algae are destroyed. The purified water then returns to the natural pond via the return connection. With this closed system the pump pressure is maintained, so that the purified water can still be sent upwards with modest pressure drops. When the filter is dirty, it becomes saturated and needs to be cleaned by a convenient valve operated backwash.
The benefits of pressure filters have been proven many times in practice. The fully enclosed filter system is compact and can be installed almost anywhere, even underwater near a pond. The filter can be partially buried or inserted in a technical compartment.
All pressure filters are designed to purify optimally with low pump pressure and the lowest possible energy consumption.
The initial series of VarioPress filters have a manual cleaning system for the purification of small ponds and with small quantities of fish. The filter is cleaned using the handle and the bypass switch to drain the dirty water.

The VariopPress filter series has been improved with the introduction of an electric motor for backwashing dirt.
The advantages of pressure filtration systems have already been widely demonstrated in practice. The filtration system is completely closed and compact and can be positioned virtually anywhere, even below the pond's water surface. The pressure drop of the filter is reduced and the water can also be used for waterfalls and water features.
Cleaning the filter material is extremely simple and is performed without opening the filter through a valve that drives an electric backwash motor. The dirt is discharged into the sewer system or elsewhere through a by-pass connection.
The built-in UVC sterilizer is to be used for keeping the pond free from suspended algae and for reducing the bacterial count.
The VarioPress Pro-E series has a large filter package. Cleaning is performed by activating the AUTO-CLEAN via the power supply of the system: it is started with the by-pass handle and manually switching to cleaning mode. Operating comfort increases enormously.

Waterproof housing in protection class IP 67
The high protection class ensures the long protection of all built-in electrical components against external moisture.
Integrated UV-c lamp with timer
Algae develop mainly in summer. With the timer switch you switch the UV-c lamp off 12 hours a day or keep it in continuous operation. In spring and autumn the timer can be set to 12 hours. Less power consumption, lower power costs and a longer lamp life.
Optimised drive technology for cleaning the filter pack
Convenient back-wash system. The built-in electric motor drives the cleaning system of the filter pack. The new drive system relieves forces on the filter pack and extends its life.
All electrical components are individually encapsulated in a waterproof housing.
This effectively eliminates the risk of moisture ingress. The electrical connections are fitted with waterproof connectors and are easy to dismantle individually if needed.
Filter cover and filter pack separately removeable.
When the lid is removed, the filter pack stays in place and is not attached to the lid. Periodic filter main- tenance is then made very easy. And the lid is freed because there is no weight on it.
Pollution indicator and acoustic signal during cleaning.
The built-in contamination indicator shows when the filter needs to be rinsed. During rinsing the filter gives a pulsing signal as a reminder that the cleaning cycle is still running and water is being pumped out of the pond. After rinsing it sounds a continuous signal.
Technical compartment for the installation of pumps, UV-C devices and filter systems or other technical devices.
The technical compartments are reinforced, however, precautions must be observed to anchor the compartments in case of water thrust from below. The technical compartments have a curved lid to prevent rainwater from stopping.

They are the optimal solution for small ponds ornamental or with fish. .
The skimmer allows quick and efficient removal of dirt on the surface of the water.
The waterfall makes progressive filtration from the big to the thin, a mechanical filtration (sieve and decanter) and a biological purification, with which the waste is transformed into nourishment.
Both of them act as both a mechanical filter (for Matala mats) and a biological one (thanks to bacteria that easily settle on Matala mats and zeolite in the waterfall).

The cascade filters 1000 (20 cm), 2000 (30 cm) and 3000 (40 cm) are compact filters that allow light filtration in the presence of a water blade.
Professional skimmers for cleaning the water surface for natural pools and fish ponds.
Thanks to its precise operation, the skimmer sucks only surface water, removing floating dirt. An important component is the curved screen with self-cleaning function, mounted on the large internal basket. Collected dirt can be easily removed by removing and emptying the basket. Dirt particles larger than 0.3 mm are retained in the drum.
The counterflange made of stainless steel is also included in the package.
