Filtration for Fountains and Water Features
Fountain pumps usually have an inlet filter to stop the pump and the fountain head blocking with debris. These inlet screens often need cleaning, particularly in the summer when weed and algae growth is at its highest.
Rotorflush Filter-pumps with their self-cleaning inlet screens protect the pump and fountains from blocking and need very little maintenance. We recommend inspection every 5000 hours to ensure your fountain is running well, if using 300 micron filter mesh
The pump's integral inlet screen protects the pump and fountain jets, and the self-cleaning mechanism prevents the screen form blinding and blocking., Another major advantage is that the very fine self-cleaning inlet screens prevent tadpoles, small fish and newts being sucked into the pump, preserving aquatic life in the pond or water feature.
Our Low Head Omnia and Divertron filter-pumps are ideal for this purpose and we can provide them with floats and fountain heads if required.
Rotorflush self-cleaning filters are Eel friendly - our products can help with your compliance to the European Commission’s Eel Recovery Plan (Council Regulation No.1100/2007) and The Eel Regulations which came into force in England and Wales in 2010.
