The Aquadyne AD30000 - Model 8.8C filtration system is without doubt the most superior Bead Filter in its class.

Our latest proving ground for the Model AD30,000 is a commercial fishery that is running 600 pounds of fish in a single living, growing system with generous feeding habits. However, they claim excellent water quality with regard to waste management through the use of these filters.  In the average large pond installation, the sheer volume of the Model 30,000 means that this filter only requires backwashing once every 3 weeks.

The AD30,000 is ideal for commercial-scale aquaculture, supporting extremely large ponds with very heavy fish loads. Commercially rated equipment in this category can run up to $9000 and $10,000. The AD30,000 comes well under that price point, but still allows high flow rates and exceptional solids removal at heavy fish loads.

This model includes the Dynamax air assisted backwash which makes it extremely efficient at handling even the heaviest fish loads. It does this by breaking up waste-loaded media beds with ease. This unit will efficiently filter 30,000 gallons of water with up to 660 pounds of fish or other aquatic inhabitants.

The AD30,000 is well-suited for applications where high volume ponds, research facilities, or aquariums require exceptional performance under the most abusive aquatic circumstances for an economical price. The large media bed allows for an massive accumulation of nitrifying bacteria to consume very large amounts of ammonia and nitrite.
