Mechanical filtration is the simplest compared to other filtration systems such as biological and chemical. Mechanical filtration involves nothing more than filtering out particles of waste by means of a barrier. However, in spite of the simplicity, mechanical filtration is really important. Most of the dirt should be filtered out at this stage before the water goes through the next stages.
To make sure that the mechanical stage of your filtration system works effectively, you have to get a filter media that can trap even the smallest particles. You'll do really well with the Aquamaxx 50 Micron Filter Pad from Pet Store
