|Filter media fulfill various tasks. On the one hand, they trap dirt and suspended particles; on the other hand, they ensure the biological conversion or chemical change of the water. |
We therefore distinguish between four different basic types: mechanical, biological, adsorptive, and chemical filter media. Optimum water treatment always depends on the use of the right media and their correct combination of layers.
All EHEIM Filter Media are regularly tested in our laboratories and guarantee consistent effectiveness.
- Adsorptive activated carbon collects dissolved pollutants,
- Mechanical material filters out solid particles,
- Biological media promote the colonisation of useful bacteria,
- Peat has a chemical influence on the pH value and water hardness.
