What could be more lush and useful than the Matala Filter Media: Green Roll? Measuring in at a handsome 48-in. dia. x 6-in. thick, it is the perfect pond filter media for medium sized particles in your pond.
Matala Filter Media: Green Roll
Matala Filter Media: Green Roll Details:
The Green roll matala is 6 inches thick. The r-matala is the perfect "drop in" media for vortex filters and barrel filters.
R-matala has the same qualities as the sheets of matala but formed into a coiled and pre-cut cartridge.
All you have to do is simply select the diameter roll and the density you need for your round tank and drop it in. The r-matala coils are not designed to be un-rolled.
A medium density green, the green r-matala traps a medium size particle. They clean out very easily by simply shaking the pieces out before draining the sump then use the garden hose to spray them clean.
Dirt falls off very easily.
The green r-matala functions as a pre-filter to the biological section. The green media removes dirt particles before they reach the biological section.
The green matala can also function as a light biological filter due to its available surface area for bacteria attachment.
R-matala will naturally wedge in place without any need for support.
However, you must measure the inside diameter of your tank and order the coil size which fits tight.
If the coil fits too loose then the water will flow around the pads instead of through them.
Four sequential densities can be perfectly employed to achieve maximum solids / bio-filtration.
Each roll is 6 inches thick with a tremendous potential to trap dirt and yet is super easy to clean.
Simply drain the waste out your bottom drain and gently pour pond water over the r-matala
The matala media works perfectly with an up-flow filter design.
The ideal up-flow configuration would be the black or green r-matala at the bottom of a filter to capture the large particles.
The next layer should be the blue r-matala to act as a biological filter and will filter out a medium size particle.
The final layer will be the gray r-matala for high surface area biological filtration and fine particle removal.
If you only have room for three layers of r-matala, we suggest you use the black on the bottom followed by the blue.
