GC Tek AquaBead/AlphaONEIncluded in all AquaBead(tm) Pond Filters are the BioGems beads.

As you probably already know, if you have done research on bead filters, the beads float. The more buoyancy that the beads have, the better off we are. To increase buoyancy we have added air to each individual bead during manufacture. Why is this important? Because we want the beads to stay as close as possible to the top of the filter during backwash. We want the beads to stay afloat so they stay away from the outlet slots on the bottom laterals so as not to choke off the laterals preventing the debris from leaving the filter. This was never a problem with the old media, but this new design makes for an even better, more buoyant media.

Besides the air injection technique, we have Dimpled the surface of the beads, to add more surface and non- abrasion area for the bacteria. This allows for undisturbed colonies of bacteria during backwash, thus creating a bead filter not prone to stumbling after a rigorous backwashing. The size of the bead was slightly downsized, for added surface area, as well. Why go to this much of an effort? Cuz` we want to provide the best filter possible to our customers. We want you happy, not only at the time of purchase, but several years down the road.
