5 Stage Filtration

  1. Mechanical - The porous foam catches large debris
  2. Mechanical - Dense poly foam filters out fine particles
  3. Chemical - Activated carbon absorbs undesirable odours, colours, and impurities
  4. Biological - Bio-screen blocks debris from entering the biological filtration stage. The micro weave provides large amounts of surface area for better biological filtration
  5. Biological - The biological trickle chamber allows the C-Nodes to have better exposure to oxygen. This allows the beneficial bacteria to quickly reduce toxins such as nitrite and ammonia
