A Biofalls box serves the purpose of a biological filtration system for a backyard pond and is where your waterfall 'starts". The biofalls box works as the 2nd part of the filtration system; the first part being the skimmer box. After the water is "skimmed" from the pond into the skimmer box (where the pump lives), it is then pushed up to the "biofalls box" at the top of the waterfall where it then spills over into the stream portion that flows down into the pond.
But then what happens and why?
Purpose of a Biofalls Box
If set up properly, your pond should have no stagnant areas and you should be recirculating your pond's total water volume 2-3 times an hour.
Is a Biofalls Box Necessary?
LESS work for you means more time to enjoy your water feature free of hassle if you set up the right elements so your pond works FOR you instead of against you. Always remember, there are 5 elements to keeping your pond water clear and if one of them is missing, you have a harder time maintaining that crystal clear water that you strive for. Preventing a maintenance nightmare is much easier than fixing one!
1) Filtration: Removes harmful debris and provides an area for additional bacteria colonization
2) Rocks and Gravel: Provides surface area for bacteria to colonize
3) Recirculating System: Keeps water flowing and oxygenated
4) Pond Fish: Helps keep algae in check and fertilizes the plants with their waste.
5) Aquatic Plants: Cleans pond by using nutrients and growing vigorously.
