This Compact Sieve is ideal for the smaller
ponds - great for ponds of up to 4,000 gallons ! and
at a price most can afford ..
Pump Fed System - so anyone with a pump
within their pond using the traditional garden pond system can now
install one of these 'Easy to Fit' compact sieve and have their
water gleaming as probably, never before ...
Maintenance is very easy ... simply
turn off the pump - lift out the sieve itself and wash off using a
hose pipe or pressure washer if available ... replace the sieve
and switch on ..
The installation is simple: a submersible pump is connected
to the stepped hose tail on the end of the Compact Sieve and will
take 1" - 1.25" and 1.5" hose sizes ..
The 90 degree bend on the inside of the hose tail connection
should be pointing downwards if you are using either the 1.25" or
the 1.5" hose .. (don't forget to cut off the hose tail to that
size of hose you are using ..
The Compact Sieve MUST be mounted above
the pond water level ...otherwise it will not function correctly.
The Compact Sieve can be used for primary
mechanical waste removal in many ways, below are a few examples:
Example ONE: Above the Existing (or
Proposed) Filter - serving the biological stage of the filtration.
The Above example shows how you can use the
Compact Sieve in conjunction with your existing (or proposed)
biological filter system - mounted higher than the water level in
the multi-bay chamber (for example) so that the water passing
through the Compact Sieve drops straight into the first biological
chamber and then from there it flows by gravity back to the pond
Example TWO: As mechanical particle waste
directly next to the pond or to a waterfall / stream return to the
Example THREE: In conjunction with a
Trickle Tower ..
By utilising the Compact Sieve as the top
section of a trickle tower system - so that the water exiting the
Compact Sieve can then just gravity drop to the lower chamber of
the trickle tower you can be sure that the biological stages of
the trickle tower system remain free from waste particles and
The Compact Sieve is ideally suited to this form
of application and has been proved to be extremely effective as a
pre-filter unit for any trickle tower filtration system and is
highly recommended if you have, or are considering, a trickle
