Helix Pond Filters


All Helix Pond Skimmers and Filters are designed to be fully customizable, easy to maintain and can operate with internal or external pumps.  Helix has three main styles of pond filters: (1) the Helix Static Waterfall Filter, (2) Helix Moving Bed Waterfall Filter, and (3) Helix Bio-Mechanical Reactor.  Helix filters can be back-washed for quick and easy cleaning. 


Helix waterfall filters help reduce harmful levels of ammonia and nitrates, while aerating your pond to increase the level of dissolved oxygen.  This helps to ensure and maintain a safe and healthy balance in your pond that is necessary for the survival of your fish and the ultimate success of your pond.  Check out these videos to learn more about Helix Pond Filters.
