The Model AD16,000 - Model 4.4C filtration system includes a 2" High efficiency Control Head" with 2 ports in and out, with 3 ea. 2" self-sealing unions included. The Model AD16,000 enters the commercial grade market of bead filtration for ponds or other aquatic habitats in the 12,000 gallon class. The Model 16,000 is used in water features ranging form very large backyard Koi ponds to fisheries, to public aquariums, and the most discriminating laboratory applications. Here also the AD16,000 far exceeds the performance of most all competitive filtration units in it's class, capable of consuming large amounts of fish waste and neutralizing equally large amounts of ammonia and nitrite from the aquatic environment. The model 16,000 will support up to 330 pounds of fish or other aquatic life in up to 12,000 gallons of water, separating and backwashing huge amounts of solid particulate waste without clogging. The Dynamax air assisted backwash makes this model extremely efficient in all ranges of waste loading. The high efficiency central diffuser column allows an efficient water flow of up to 6000 Gph (and maybe a little more) without sacrificing filtration efficiency. As with all other Aquadyne filters the 16,000 comes standard with the Dynamax air assisted backwash system.

Select this AD16000 filter if your pump size is from 1000 GPH to 8000 GPH, and your pond is from 3000 to 16000 gallons in volume.
