24 Pieces Wardley Sandman Filtration System ES 10-38 Gallons Aquarium
Fluidized Bed Technology Filter For Fresh and Saltwater Aquariums
3-Stage Power Filtration System for 10 - 38 Gallon Aquariums
Mechanical, Biological, and Chemical Filtration System to control levels of toxic ammonia and nitrate.
Particles and waste are trapped and removed from the
aquarium by the floss pad resulting in clear water which allows full enjoyment of the aquarium inhabitants true and full colors.
-The most important step in proper aquarium filtration.
-Naturally occurring, beneficial bacteria break down fish waste, uneaten food, and decaying plant matter to safe harmless compounds.
-The fluidized sand provides an extremely high surface area on which these microscopic bacteria can grow and metabolize the waste materials.
-This means you can maintain optimum water quality without sacrificing feedings or severely limiting fish populations.
-Final filtration and water polishing is accomplished by chemical removal of dissolved organic materials which tend to yellow or discolor the water and cause odors over time.
-The carbon impregnated pad requires water to flow through it rather than around itt making it much more effective than pellet or granular carbon pads.
-The chemical chamber area can also accommodate ion-specific resins, water softening media, or dolomite / crushed coral to accomplish specific water quality desires.
Continuous, Uninterrupted Performance:
-Many traditional cartridge-based, power filters rely on the cartridge unit to provide biological filtration.
-Unfortunately, when the cartridge is disposed of, so are the essential, beneficial bacteria - potentially causing critical conditions in the aquarium.
-Because the sand remains in the SandMan when the floss and carbon cartridges are changed, biological filtration continues uninterrupted and your pet's safety is not compromised.
-U:/CUL listed safety for yourself and your fish
-Check valve strainer prevents the intake siphon from disconnecting during power outages or when the filter is simply unplugged during routine water changes or maintenance.
-Quick, easy restarts, every time.
At Wardley, they believe that simplicity is the technology.
The SandMan does not have excessive and imposing valves, tubing, fittings, etc. ... to connect.
It does not require drilling holes in the aquarium, or other specialized rigging devices. It comes complete out-of- the-box, ready-to-use.
Welcome to "Plug-N-Play" filtration.
-Fluidization involves the process of running water through a filter medium fast enough to cause it to suspend and develop a flowing movement of its own.
-When this occurs, 100% o the media's surface area becomes exposed, increasing its efficiency to filter or react with the water.
With the SandMan filter system, sand is the filter medium of choice for several reasons:
-thousands of grains fit into a small area, providing a very high total surface area for natural
-nitrifying bacteria to grow upon, sand has a highly irregular surface area, further increasing its surface area vs. spherical shapes
-sand is essentially inert with no secondary effects on water quality.
An additional prime benefit to fluidization is that each grain of fluidized sand is continually bumping into other grains or the filter walls.
This creates a "self-scrubbing" condition which minimizes the development of a bio-layer or slime which can reduce filtration efficiency.
The sand in the biological chamber of the SandMan filter is virtually maintenance free.
