Matala introduces new BioSteps pond kits that are ideal for water garden ponds up to 2,000 gallons and koi ponds up to 1,000 gallons.
They are available in four models: BioSteps Plus Kit, BioSteps Plus-WF Kit, BioSteps Pro Kit and BioSteps Premium Kit.
The BioSteps Premium Kit is the basic model with the 16-watt EZClear UV clarifier and the waterfall spillway. It comes complete with the new BioSteps filter, MF-1100EZ submersible pump and 25 feet of 3/4-inch, quality “kink-free” hose and connectors to make installation quick and easy.
The BioSteps Plus Kit includes a BioSteps filter with six Matala filter pads: two green pads, two blue pads and two gray pads. It has amazing filter capacity and improved management of solids settling within the filter chamber. With a flow rate of 800 to 900 gallons per hour, it has an open-flow gravity return to the pond.
A new swivel-inlet fitting has barb sizes that include 3/4 inch, 1 inch, 1 1/4 inches and 1 1/2 inches. The outlet fitting is for a 1 1/2 or 2-inch pipe connection or connection to the optional waterfall spillway.
