Hydra Filtrons 4 stage water purification goes beyond the conventional 3 stage filtration (Mechanical, Biological, Chemical), with the incorporation of the revolutionary. Hydro-Pure technology uses Hydroxyl Radicals (-OH) to accelerate an aquariums startup (cycling) time from the usual 4-5 weeks with within 1 week, reduce water odour, and continue to retain a crystal clear tank.
The 3 Phases of Hydro-Pure Technology:
Phase 1: Aquarium water containing Protein, Ammonia (NH3) and Nitrite (NO2-).
Phase 2: Cata-pure Media reaction produces reactive Hydroxyl Radicals from water. Hydroxyl Radicals reduces Protein, toxic by-products like Ammonia (NH3), Nitrite (NO2-), and odour from Sulphur-based by-products.
Phase 3: Biologically clean and healthy water for fish and invertebrates.
3DM Biological Medium:
Hydra Filtron uses 3DM, a pH neutral revolutionary mineral based beneficial bacteria medium that incorporates most advanced manufacturing techniques and technology. To create this macro-porous medium that contains up to 10x more surface area than conventional filter medium.
