AquaDoc is a new and unique filter media that has its origins in heavy industry in water purification plants. It has the following functions that suit pond and tank filter systems and allows it to perform better than any other filter medium.

1: AquaDoc has a unique ability to absorb dangerous heavy metal ions in the water. All metals heavier than sodium will be absorbed, allowing for healthier fish.

2: Aquadoc is an extremely porous product and increases usefull bacteria growth for biological filtration systems.

3: AquaDoc can be re-used many times and for long periods of time.

4: AquaDoc can be used in high pressure filtration systems and helps with settling of suspended contaminants.

5: Non-toxic even to humans.

For more information on AquaDoc please feel free to contanct me at PhillipW@aquaoptions.com

No website at this stage for this product as such as it is a new product.

I will try to post a pic of the product, although its basically a material sachet, like a teabag with the functioning chemical inside.

More information will be appreciated since most people use systems like Bio Balls, sand filters, Vortex and I use the expensive Matala sheets. Always good to see new things on the market but people are skeptical about the new age products, so the more info you can provide the better for all of us.

That is the price?
Is it easy to clean?
What is the surface area per volume?
How often do you have to replace the media?
Is it dense enough to catch small particles, or better to use as Bio media instead of a mechanical filter?

The Matala I use is very expensive compared to Japanese matting, but far easier to clean and if you look at the far better surface area that Matala provides it is cheaper to buy Matala if you compare surface area versus price.

Think people will be open to new ideas since you get good products on the market these days. I built my filter system about 10-15% of my pond capacity. In my case I wanted to hide a part of the garden, but most people would prefer a smaller filter system to perform the same job for the amount of Koi in the pond.

The product comes in a sachet form and can be used in bio and mechanical filters.
As for the surface area: The product is extremely porous and hydrophylic thus the surface area increases with time, and after curing the chemicals can be crushed inside to increase the surface are as well, although this is not needed.
The product was developed for large industry to remove toxic soluble heavy metal minerals. It works by entrapping the heavy metal ions within the media.
If the product is cured in a solution of potasium permangenate it act as a slow release mechanism to decrease parasitic growth on fish.

As for pricing, they come in 10cm X 10 cm sachets at R20 per sachet.

Lifecycle of the chemical can be up to 5 years and can be cleaned very easily by rinsing

Hi,
We need to know a little more please -

Is it a naturally occuring mineral or a man made product? If man made what is it made out of?

As for curing in potassium permanganate - I would be very, very weary of this.

PP is a powerful oxidising agent and will destropy the skin and gills of koi not only damage parasites. To work with koi parasite PP and other chemicals must only be used in special circumtances i .e. when parasite have been identified as aproblem and a these chemicals are used in specific dosages.

There is no such thing as a theraputic dose of PP - at low levels it will cause irritation and stress.

Not too sure how the surface area will increase over time even though it is porous. If the surface area increases there must be some collapse of the product?

You mentioned a life cycle of the "chemical" .....

One last thing - if it is used in large industry to remove toxic heavy metals are you sure it does not release anything into the water that could affect the koi? Used in industrial environments is one thing used in a koi pond is quite another.

Your product sounds very interesting but we need more information please.

Chris

I have to agree when you dont have to PP it not a matter of HP. I hate adding stuff to a pond when you dont know the cause of the problem and cause more damage to the fish. Let it be natural as far as possible.

I have just posted about a new product which we are manufacturing in South Africa which is the most used product in UK as a filter medium. It is called Flocor and you can just Google it, Flocor Koi ponds and you can have a look at the product.

It is made from PVC and has the biggest surface area of any product on the market.
