Roto Innovation Koi & Pond Filters
Due to a massive demand for alternative Koi Pond Filtration, Roto Innovations have been burning the candle at both ends to come up with revolutionary "Concept Filtration". Roto Innovations is a dynamic business drawing from years of experience within the Koi & aquatic industry and using the latest technology to design and engineer innovative solutions for the Koi and Aquatic markets.
The Roto Shower Tube
First came a cutting-edge shower tube, launched at Glee in September 2008. The Roto Shower Filter incorporates Crystal Bio - a unique, eco-friendly glass media, heated in excess of 900°C, creating a hyper-connecting glass cell structure. This produces media with a surface area at least ten times greater than most plastic alternatives.
The Roto™Shower Tube™ Koi Pond Filter is not just another shower filter, but a shower of unique design. The Roto™Shower Tube™ is the perfect addition to an existing filtration adding 100 litres of Crystal Bio Media to the existing set up. Roto Shower Tube Koi Filters can also be used as a stand alone filter able to handle pumped solids by the inclusion of the 300 micron sieve insert and 50 litres of Crystal Bio Media
The Roto Shower Tube is manufactured from Polyethylene which has thermal retentive properties. This is further improved by the inclusion as standard of a high quality well fitted Polyethylene lid, an essential part of any serious Koi Pond Filter, often overlooked by other manufacturers.
The Roto™Shower Tube™ has a small foot print which makes it an ideal choice where installation space is of a premium. The biological media chamber holds up to 100 litres of Crystal Bio and 50 litres on the sieve model, which means there is no loss of filtration performance.
This is compared when choosing a smaller filter with less media just because the filter needs to fit a small space. The Roto Shower Tube uses Crystal Bio which is an extremely lightweight biological media ideal for shower or trickle filters.
Crystal Bio has up to 10 times the surface area of most plastic media due to the hyper-interconnecting cell structure. The Roto Shower Tube including 100 litres of Crystal Bio media is suitable as main filtration for Koi and Garden Ponds and quarantine tanks. The Roto Shower Tube is also an ideal add on filter to existing filtration systems on Koi and Garden Ponds.
Shower style Koi Pond Filters have dramatically increased in popularity with Koi Keepers around the world since the introduction of the Bakki Shower Filters a few years ago but the all new Roto Concept Gravity Shower Koi Pond Filtration System takes this a few steps further into a truly revolutionary concept of Gravity Fed Showers.
The Roto Concept Gravity Shower is of a truly unique design, and by using the latest British manufacturing techniques to produce each Roto Concept Gravity Shower every Koi Keeper can now benefit from this advanced new concept.
Quite simply, the Roto Concept Gravity Shower is the future of Koi pond filtration, today.
The Roto Concept Gravity Shower is manufactured from Polyethylene which has thermal retentive properties. This is further improved by the inclusion as standard of a high quality well fitted Polyethylene lid, an essential part of any serious Koi Pond Filter, often overlooked by other manufacturers.
The Roto™Concept Gravity Shower™ includes 200 litres of high quality Crystal Bio glass filter media. Crystal Bio is a unique, eco-friendly glass media, heated in excess of 900°C, creating a hyper-connecting glass cell structure. This produces media with a surface-area at least ten times greater than most well known plastic alternatives.
The Roto™Concept Gravity Shower™ with patent pending features has been designed with the serious Koi Keeper in mind. The unique Roto™Gravity Shower Flow Valve™ system allows for the Roto™Concept Gravity Shower™ to be installed gravity fed, unlike all other showers on the market, that are pump fed only, This allows Koi Keepers for the first time, the ability to install a shower filter out of sight as if it were any regular gravity fed fillter, truly an incredible Concept.
The Concept Gravity Shower has a large vortex allowing for mechanical settlement of solid waste, with an easy to use, less than 30 second cleaning process, allows the Koi Keeper more time to enjoy their pond and Koi and less time worrying about filter maintenance.
With 200 litres of Crystal Bio glass media included with the Roto™Concept Gravity Shower™ there really is no competition in biological performance.
Compact well thought out design makes the Roto™Concept Gravity Shower™ easy to install with maximum biological capacity for minimum space required.
The only shower available you can connect direct to your bottom drain and feed by gravity. Can also be pump fed if required.
The first true Gravity Shower Concept.
Crystal Bio - Glass Koi Filter Shower Media
Crystal Bio is an extremely lightweight "shower" media, available at a fraction of the cost of existing "shower" media but offering improved results
Bacteria living on all submerged biological filter media will multiply and colonise the media at an improved and faster rate if oxygenated.
This is why shower filters are the best form of filtration for koi ponds, the shower media, in this case Crystal Bio is used in a Shower Filter and exposed to the air, and as air costs nothing to produce you do not need to run an expensive air pump, like you do with other media, to aerate your filter media and improve the size of the bacterial culture.
Every piece of Crystal Bio filter media has a protected area or static zone designed to be the perfect environment for micro animals, not just bacteria. Once colonised each piece of Crystal Bio will contain millons of these micro animals, all filtering many thousands of times their own volume every minute, searching for their food source. These micro animals will feed on small particles such as, fish waste, dead bacteria, algae and organic matter.
By using Crystal Bio filter media on your Koi pond today you will see the benefits of sparkling healthy water, high in oxygen content with low BOD (Biological Oxygen Demand).
The surface area of crystal Bio is massive, up to 10 times the surface area of most well know plastic media with 100 litres of Crystal Bio equalling up to 1000 litres of plastic media, imagine the cost and space of that filter.
Why Crystal Bio Is The Best Filter Media
- Massive surface area due to the interconnecting cell structure of Crystal Bio
- Lightweight, making Crystal Bio the best media for use in shower and trickle filters
- Inexpensive, compared with other shower media's on the market of a poorer quality and much higher price
- Every piece of Crystal Bio has a protected area or static zone designed to be the perfect environment for micro animals, not just bacteria.
- Prevents pH levels from crashing on new and mature ponds or when altering filtration systems
- Helps to reduce blanket weed by reducing nitrates
- Your Koi Pond water will sparkle like you have never seen... this is why its called Crystal Bio
You can use Crystal Bio in the following ways:
- The Roto™ Innovations Shower Tube™ and Concept Gravity Shower™ comes complete with Crystal Bio.
- Use Crystal Bio in your existing or new Bakki Shower Filter or add it in with your Bacteria House media.
- Use Crystal Bio in existing shower filters on the market and improve on their biological performance
- Crystal Bio can be used submerged, but it is so light it will float, so use it in a filter media bag weighted down or cage the media with a grid.
The amazing Crystal Bio is the Shower Media of choice - the media every Koi Keeper is talking about and buying
10-20mm size pieces are ideal for use in Aquariums and Koi Quarantine tanks.
