Aquatic Bog Filters Are The Best Way To Keep Larger Natural Ponds Crystal Clear
Filtering large earth bottom or lined ponds the natural way is the key to a clean, beautiful feature on your property.
Yes, in The Northern Virginia areas, you can transform an unsightly earthen-bottom farm pond into a beautiful, healthy ecosystem water feature! A gorgeous new waterfall provides beneficial aeration and circulation to a mucky, stagnant pond, while a constructed wetland provides much-needed natural filtration. Additional pump jets aid circulation while an intake bay skims the pond’s surface helping to keep it clean. You won’t believe the results!
A wetland works similarly to a Biofalls filter, but instead of creating a waterfall; it creates an area in your pond thick with naturally-filtering plants, as well as rocks and gravel, which provide a surface for bacterial colonization … nature’s perfect filters. So a wetland, while naturally beautiful and pleasing to the eye, is a great filtration method that will help keep your water looking crystal clear.
One of the greatest things about wetland filtration is that it can be used with almost any system. But will it fit in with your pond? Do you have to have a lot of space to construct a wetland? There are no size limitations because it acts as your biological filtration. The plants, rocks, and gravel act as the filtration media, similar to what you see in nature.
Constructed wetlands have grown in popularity over the last couple of years, mainly because of their natural look and aesthetic appeal. But what exactly is a wetland and just how does it function?
