The process of bioflitration is very interesting. It uses living things to catch and biologically break down pollutants. This technology is applied to filtering out wastes from water and air. It has proven to be effective, too, which is why it has also been used as a filtration system for man-made fish ponds. And when it comes to biofiltration, Springflow is a popular name.
Savio Springflow filtration systems use the Springflow Filter Media from Pet Store, which is a twine of green ribbon with calcium carbonate and polypropylene in it. The ribbon is covered in embossed patterns, and if you look at it closely, these patterns create many dimples and ridges that catch not only dirt, but bacteria and other microorganisms. Because it catches bacteria, which is the usual source of bad odor, the water also loses its funky smell, if present. As mentioned before, this ribbon is used with Savio Springflow filtration systems to automate the whole clean-up process.
The Springflow Filter Media is user-friendly. It is also easy to clean and maintain. It resists clogging up, even in environments with a horizontal or even upward water flow. A box of this ribbon is very affordable, and yet it can filter around a thousand gallons.
This is not just another plastic media – it's hybrid technology! You are looking at the world’s most advanced bio filter media. The remarkable, embossed green coils of Savio Springflo™ provide more surface area for beneficial, waste-purifying microorganisms than any other product of similar volume. Patented design resists clogging, channelling, and encourages rapid bacterial growth for healthier, cleaner ponds and water gardens.
Savio Springflo’s embossed pattern provides over 180 sq. ft. of active surface area per box. Easily self-dispenses – simply hold above filter and start unwinding from center. While other media have a short usable life (they work best off the shelf) – the “loose coil” effect created by Savio Springflo™ fosters an ideal environment for waste filtering – it actually works best as it gets dirtier. Plus, it’s very easy to clean – just don’t use soaps, hot water, or chemicals, as they can harm the beneficial bacteria thriving to keep your pond clean, naturally. Savio Springflo™ is a special formulation of embossed polypropylene and calcium carbonate that lasts for an entire year. Plus, it’s an easy upgrade for any old style filter still using filtermat, gravel, bio-balls, or floss.
