the PowerGlo hang about 2 cm above the water surface which by 6000 / LH is quite moving. store owner kringel light on the rocks and the sand ....

which are sunriseanlagen left and right mounted around the center to keep the basin dark.
the plant does not need a time switch since it governs itself

the filter works far better than expected ... The large surface is a crystal-clear water in becken.durch building it is low-maintenance and easy to maintain!


the filter input is behind the pile in the middle .The pre-filter filters out an area of ​​each 10x10x50 coarse filter mat


the filter chambers are equipped with filter bags which can be pulled out by means of a nylon cord when cleaning easy.

the filter shaft are striving incorporated the slipping of the individual elements verhindert.die heating rods are located behind the pre-filter in a gap to the first filter chamber and thus be optimally washed what widerum saves energy.

the left filter runs every 6h for 2h-by the enormous energy that is brought into the water heats up s the basin continuously on 25,9-26,1C ° without the heating elements start (25C °). EDIT: thanks to the new cooling can also filter fully through the left.

10:06:10: an extension of the left filter was now finished ... it is a very slow flowing Zeolithfilter which is over the internal filter.
The system promotes means of dosing pump (see photo under a new technology).
