How the Nexus+ Works
The Nexus+ filter is an innovative biological and mechanical filter system in one. Water from the pond enters the Nexus+ via the inlet into the inner chamber which works as a vortex allowing larger solids to settle out. The water then passes through Eazy filter, where finer particles are removed at the mechanical stage of filtration, thanks to the static bed of K1 Micro filter media.
The mechanically clean water then passes to the outside chamber of the Nexus+ where the new K+Media Moving Bed is located for biological treatment prior to being returned to the pond. At this stage, biological breakdown occurs through different strains of bacteria and filter feeders living on the vast protected surface area of each piece of the K+Media. These bacteria convert Ammonia and Nitrite into less harmful Nitrate. Water then passes through the exit grill into the outlet, returning back to the pond.
