We invite you to take a little time to compare GC Tek upper end pond filtration products with other filtration products on the market.
You will find, for instance, that the GC Tek Filters do not offer nor need any options. We have included, as standard equipment, items such as our media agitators which most other manufacturers consider as a costly option.
Why? Because we want to offer the most efficient filter, priced as sensibly, as we possibly can. We want you to get a filter that will serve your needs and is hassle and worry free.
That's why the GC Tek Filters are known as the LifeTime Warranty Filters. We were the first to offer a Lifetime Warranty on every filter we manufacture. We know the quality that goes into every filtration product the we produce and that's why we invite you to compare quality, features and price. We know you'll choose GC Tek Filters every time.
AlphaONE - More than a Bead Filter!
The AlphaONE was first conceived over 7 years ago. About 5 years ago we enlisted about 60 willing participants, which consisted of dealers and pond owners, to help us with our testing and give us feed back. In two years of testing we received "0" negative comments. This surpassed even our greatest expectations. Some of these were new pond owners and many were previous owners of different types of bead filters.
The responses were unanimous "We Love It"
What makes it different from a bead filter and so loveable?
What we are hearing from others is that:
It can go for greatly extended times before flow slows down.
We have had reports of people going for a month (with only a 2.5 model) with no slow down in flow or rise in pressure of the AlphaONE unit, while still giving nice clear water. (we do not advocate going for a month before backwashing, the best thing for your fish and your water quality is to backwash the filter often and remove the debris before it breaks down biologically.)
How does it do this?
To answer this we have to understand the difference between bead filters and how they trap solids and how the AlphaONE accomplishes this task. Bead filters trap solids in the first few inches of the bead pac(causing clogging, flow disruption and pressure rises in the vessel) while the AlphaONE with its uniquely designed AlphaBioONE media stops the debris evenly through out the pac (resulting in greater flow, less head or back pressure, less maintenance.) The polishing ability of the filter is one it's most desirable features, based upon comments that into us from the field.
The AlphaBioONE media was specially designed for this filter and this filter only. It is not something borrowed from another industry and used in the filter.
Its design is unique in that it was not designed with "cross hairs" as some other specialty types of media use. We left those out because in a static bed the "cross hairs" can collect and hold debris until it becomes anaerobic.
With the AlphaBioONE media there are no hidden areas for anaerobic bacteria, to harbor and stagnate, only beneficial bacteria.
Take a look at the AlphaBioONE media and you'll see for yourself.Description: We invite you to take a little time to compare GC Tek upper end pond filtration products with other filtration products on the market.
