Product Overview

The BioSmart is a flow-through filter that is both innovative and efficient. It undertakes biological and mechanical filtration and offers maximum oxygenation. With a sludge drain that allows for easy removal of coarse debris, the BioSmart is built for work - there is no need to remove or manually unclog the filter foams. Distinct filter zones promote the settlement of beneficial bacteria responsible for different phases of the nitrogen cycle, increasing the conversion of harmful ammonia in the pond. The BioSmart is eco-friendly technology with positive results for local wildlife and fish stock. With a built-in cleaning indicator and water temperature display, the unit requires minimal maintenance. The BioSmart UVC 1600 with included UV Filtration is for ponds up to 1,600 gallons; the BioSmart 5000/10000 for up to 10,000 gallons. For maximum effect it can be combined with the Vitronic 18 - 36 Watt UV Clarifiers. When used in conjunction with the BioSmart filter, the AquaMax Eco Classic 1200-2700 or AquaMax Eco Premium 2000-3000 and the Vitronic UV Clarifier qualify for the OASE Water Guarantee.

Questions & Answers

is the filtering by gravity or pump pressure?

Hello. Thank you for your question. The OASE BioSmart 5000 is what we define as a flow-through filter. While it does require a pump to operate, ideally this type of filter is positioned above the water surface, at the edge of the pond or above a waterfall. From that position, the water flows through the filter and back into the pond via gravity. We hope this helps!

How does one install the 3" outlet adapter?

The Fernco fitting suggested does not fit. The outlet on this filter unit is a non-standard size here in the U.S. I had originally installed a Fernco fitting when we set this up. A year later the fitting slipped off and we just about emptied our entire pond into our yard. Need specific instructions for hooking this up to a 2" flexible hose to direct the output back into the pond.

Easy assembly of two main inlets. Is there a Fahrenheit scale ''water temperature display'' thermometer included? Mine appears to be in Centigrade down to -10. Fresh water input is for the cleaning cycle rinse to waste?

Centigrade only, the unit is made in Germany, but conversions to Fahrenheit abound on the internet. Regarding the fresh water input, yes, that is my understanding. The inlet is used to connect a garden hose to flush the filter unit.

Can this box be used to treat gray water on a small boat if i can chlorinate the discharge prior to entering existing body of water

This product has not been tested for use with grey water. We would not recommend using this filter for this application. We hope this helps!

Unhappy with product
I'll keep this short, and within the guidelines. This unit didn't have clear instructions and their customer service was not good. The outlet doesn't match any standard plumbing dimensions. Thank you for your time.

The filter works well. Hook up was easy - fortunately because the directions were useless.So far the pond seems a bit cleaner. There is apparently an ultraviolet add on that will help with algae. However it was mentioned only briefly in the info given, but would be helpful as this filter does not clear algae as is. OVerall a good product from a company that could use a good consult regarding communication

Impossible to set up. Instructions have numbered parts but fail to tell you how they go together or instructions names the part in written text that is only NUMBERED and so confusing. All parts not included and fails to tell you when purchased so searching for a part. You get home and pieces and parts are missing. Went to UTUBE and company has assembly inst........video and music....no words....parts in video parts not in box and no words so no NAME to go and buy the missing part. A joke....wasted hours........nothing fits together washer too big and leaks. Ridiculous
