OASE Filtoclear 3000 pond filter

The OASE Filtoclear 3000 is a UV pressure filter that is suitable for 500 to 2000 litres

This filter will sit outside of your pond somewhere in your yard/garden (can be partially buried up to the lid).  A compatible pond pump situated inside your pond will pump water from the pond, into the filter and then back into the pond via two lengths of pond hose.

Easy AND Effective backwash

Canister filters (like this one) are designed to sit outside of your pond. They have an inbuilt ‘backwash’ system to clean them.
Sometimes canister filters get a bad wrap and there is a good reason for this.  95% of them have terrible backwash systems that simply do not work well at removing the dirt from within the filter.  This means that the user needs to periodically open up the filter and squeeze the sponges with their hands, which is not a fun job!
The OASE Filtoclears are the only canister filter on the market that physically squeezes out the sponges from within the filter, without the need to open it up.
It’s very simple technology, but they put a patent on it so no other company can use it.
OASE Filtoclears are the only pressure filters on the market that can be properly cleaned in minutes. Without having to touch a drop of water!

UV Clarification

This filter has an inbuilt 11 watt UV light which prevents the growth of single-celled algae. This algae is what is responsible for your pond water turning green. Ponds that receive sunlight will often turn soupy green in colour, often UV clarification is the only way to keep water crystal clear. UV lights have the added benefit of sterilising harmful bacteria and pathogens within your pond.

These globes become ineffective after approximately 12 months so replace them annually. The Filtoclear 3000 has a small blue light on the lid that indicates when the globe is on, after 12 months your UV globe will likely remain ‘on’ however the wavelengths are no longer effective in killing algae so be sure to replace it regardless

We will throw in two free spare UV globes to keep you going!


Compatible Pumps and Hosing

Pair this filter with a solids-handling pump that has a flow of about 3500 litres per hour.

We recommend the Aquamax 3500 if you are not pumping the water up to a waterfall after the filter.   Maybe consider a stronger pump like an Aquamax 5500 if you are pumping it up to a waterfall

You should also have a think about how much 25mm hose you might require.  You need a piece of hose going from the pump (located in the pond) to the filter (located in a convenient place for access) and then from the filter to the other end of the pond (far away from the pump to encourage full water circulation)

Of course, if you have any questions regarding the suitability of this filter for your pond, call us on (02) 9986 2000 or write to us at [email protected]
