The revolutionary design of Fish Mate UV+Bio Pond Filter combine U.V. clarification and biological filtration to guarantee crystal clear and purified water. For ponds up to 1200 gallons; Max. flow 500gph. Includes one 16W U.V. lamp. 16' power cable.
3 Stages of Pond Water Treatment:
Stage 1 Algae Destruction
By slowly passing the single celled algae that cause green water in front of U.V.-C light, the algae is caused to clump together and start to die.
Stage 2 Mechanical Filtration
A specially developed, profiled filter sponge will trap algae clumps plus other large particles and is easily rinsed for regular maintenance.
Stage 3 Biological Purification
After mechanical filtration, the pond water passes through Fish Mate SUPRA Biological Filter Medium, possessing over 100 x the biological surface area of conventional plastic media. The specific structure of Supra enables rapid growth of aerobic bacteria resulting in removal of lethal ammonia and nitrite.
Multisized inlet, 3/4" (19mm) / 1" (25mm)
Easy to replace U.V. tube positioned over water to minimize problems of safety, scaling, quartz tube replacement and frost damage associated with conventional U.V. filters.
High efficiency U.V. reflector
Large capacity, slow flow U.V. chamber ensures efficient algae clumping and acts as settlement chamber

Fishmate pond filter
I inherited this exact same model from my dad many years ago. I was glad to find a new one just like my old one. It's working great.

Fish Mate Filter
I have used this particular model for about 11 years in my pond -- only the second time I"ve had to replace it. Very pleased with its performance so wanted to have the same one again. Best price I found was here at Petguys.com!
