Low Density Black Matala Filter Media
Introducing Matala®, the advanced filter media for today's serious pond enthusiast. One look at Matala® will convince you of its practical and versatile qualities. The open, highly aerobic 3 dimensional structure promotes healthy water conditions and ease of cleaning in most non-pressurized filter designs. Matala® is a filter media that is simple and that works.
Black Matala filter media effectively separates large particles to small and still maintains a very aerobic and free flow of water without channelling. Matala is slightly buoyant and will not sink to the bottom of your filter. Matala stood vertically on end will not float. Matala stacked horizontally will hold each other down. Due to it's rigidity the Matala can be wedged in place in the filter without support.
The Black Matala can be used as a support grate for other layers of media due to its very sturdy and open design. In a settling chamber the Black will slow down and trap very large particles and hair algae.
When you use the Black or Green Matala for solids filtering you may use the garden hose to spray clean them, the dirt falls off very easily.
