BLACK BAKKI SHOWERS« back
First developed by the Momotaro Japanese Koi farm, the bakki shower attempts to simulate natures way of filtering water. Similar to a mountain stream where water cascades over rocks.
Momotaro Koi Farms developed the bakki shower with stainless steel trays. Since that time many "DIY bakki showers" have been designed with variations on them. Plastic and fiberglass boxes or crates have been used with success. FILTER MEDIA CHOICES *
The choices of filter media vary greatly , each filter media has differant properties and therfore differant performance bacteria house media is the preferred choice and is the result of over six years of research
it is man made ceramic blend that has been treated at 1300°c for 60 hours .This tremendous amount of heat causes the ceramic to break its internal bonds thereby creating an extremely porous structure that has much greater surface area to allow very large bacteria population to colonise
Due to the large quantities of tiny holes, mechanical filtration is also achieved. Large organic solids and decaying matter are degraded at a far greater speed than conventional media, and without blocking up!
PLEASE NOTE * Price includes lid , pressure pipe spray bar and media grids fitted as standard
