Biofalls and Filtration

Waterfall Foam

This black polyurethane waterfall foam is ideal for filling joints and gaps between rocks and boulders maximizing the amount of water cascading over the waterfall and rushing down the stream. It sets within an hour and can be readily hidden by sprinkling pea gravel or sand over the foam while it is still slightly damp. It has some flexibility which accomodates the shifting of the rocks and ground structure over the winter.

Comes in a DIY can, or in the “Professional” size can which requires the use of a Foam Gun applicator.

Spillway

  • The Waterfall Spillway is an ideal solution for starting waterfalls on Pondless® Waterfall systems, where, due to the absence of fish, more expensive biological filters aren’t necessary.
  • The Waterfall Spillway is also an excellent choice for designing additional waterfalls and streams onto new or existing ponds that already have a biological filter.
  • With the Waterfall Spillway you can build behind hardscape walls to provide a more formal waterfall design.
  • Strong design allows boulders, logs, gravel, soil or other creative landscape material to be set directly on top of the Waterfall Spillway, helping to camouflage it into the surrounding landscape
  • Watertight connection is made using the fitting on the back of the Waterfall Spillway
  • Wide 22-inch spillway handles flow rates up to 7,500 gallons per hour
  • Internal barriers dam the incoming flow of water, providing a smooth-flowing waterfall

Silicone

Used for sealing connections where liner attaches to the BioFalls® Filter snout and the skimmer faceplate.

Micro Falls Rock Tray

Especially designed for the Signature Series Microfalls, this tray holds rocks, plants and gravel, helping to naturalize the unit.

Matala Filtration Media

A good biofilter needs a lot of surface area with open spaces between for good aerated water flow. A high surface area is useless if the passageways are so small that water flow cannot penetrate.This light-weight versatile product is made of curly, fibre thermo-polypropylene compounds, and is non-toxic to the environment. It is easy to cut and fits in any application. Available in 4 densities:

  • MATALA – BLACK Filter grid, low density, best suited for use in skimmers
  • MATALA – GREEN Filter Mat, Medium Density
  • MATALA – BLUE Filter Mat, High Density
  • MATALA – GREY Filter Mat, Super High Density
  • Proper Use of Matala
