AllClear™ G1 Pressurized Filter FAQ
Can I connect the filter to my waterfall?
Yes, as long as the gallons per hour on the pump used does not exceed the max flow rate of the filter in the chart above. If your waterfall pump exceeds the max flow rate of the pressurized filter, consider running the filter on a smaller pump.
What happens if I run a pump that is above the recommended max flow of the AllClear™ G1 Pressurized Filter?
If your pump's flow rate (gallons per hour) is higher than the max flow rate of the AllClear™ G1 Pressurized Filter, the UV will underperform as there will not have enough exposure time to clear the water. You also run the risk of damaging the filter unit and seals by creating too much pressure, which in time can cause the filter to leak.
How often do I need to clean my AllClear™ G1 Pressurized Filter?
The amount of fish in your pond will determine how frequently you will need to clean your filter. In general, clean your filter every other week or when the pressure indicator displays red or when water flow is reduced.
How do I clean my AllClear™ G1 Pressurized Filter?
Simply unlatch the filter lid and gently remove. Rinse the filter pads and bio media with pond water. Do NOT use chlorinated tap water. Place the filter pads back into the filter so the blue pad is on the bottom and the black pad is on top. (If you have the 2400 model the yellow pad will be in the middle).
Why do I have to bury my AllClear™ G1 Pressurized Filter in the ground?
Burying the AllClear™ G1 Pressurized Filter up to the lid allows for easy camouflage of the filter as well as the kink free tubing. It also secures the unit so it doesn't tip over or fall into the pond. With the lid exposed above ground, this also allows for easy routine maintenance. You can even further camouflage your AllClear™ G1 Pressurized Filter by using a TrueRock™ Cover.
Can I run the AllClear™ G1 Pressurized Filter in the winter?
If the ground/pond freezes during winter in your area, it is important to drain and remove the entire AllClear™ G1 Pressurized Filter before winter. This protects the unit from the freezing cold temperatures, which can lead to the unit being damaged.
