Evolve filters have been designed with the aim of giving the koi keeper for the first time the design and components within their filter that most closely match their requirements and pocket. The range is based on the vastly superior horizontal flow principal. They are also available as pump or gravity fed versions. Once you have decided on the basic filter that matches your pond size you can decide whether for the mechanical component you wish to stick with the more standard labour intensive but cheaper brushes, in which case you can have up to three brush cartridges or go all in and opt for the self cleaning drum filter. You can of course update your brushes at a later date for a Drum filter as and when funds are available. For the biological stage you have the option of using heavily aerated Japanese matting cartridges, moving bed technology utilising genuine K1 or both options in one filter chamber. To explain the options you have new improved 15mm genuine Japanese matting cartridges or high quality stainless steel baskets with lids to house your moving bed media such as the K1 supplied.  On the larger Evolve 4000 and 6000 filters you can mix the media in each media bay. For instance on the Evolve 6000 you have four options, you can have all three bays containing matting cartridges, or one three bay stainless basket with moving bed K1 or one bay of matting with a two bay stainless basket with K1 or two matting cartridges and the single K1 basket. The baskets are also ideal for housing whatever media or supplements you like. For maintenance purposes the drum and all the media can be removed from the filter in less than 60 seconds

More about Evolve Filters

For mechanical filtration in the Evolve filters. There’s the option of the drop in Draco drum, but with an option for a brush box should the customer wish it or can’t afford to buy the drum combo in one. He has the option to purchase the basic Evolve filter with a brush box and simply drop a drum in when funds become available. This I think makes the filter much more appealing to the majority of koi keepers that simply don’t have £2,000 to spare in one lump sum.

For choice of moving bed media in the Evolve filters we recommend  the world proven technology of genuine K1, but the buyer can choose any other moving bed media if they have a preference. To contain this moving bed media there’s a set of lift out stainless steel baskets. These baskets are available in three sizes to suit the different filters but all are interchangeable. The base of the biological stage has several air bars which the baskets sit on to provide the movement for the K1 and to ensure the water is oxygen rich.

For the optional choice of bio media and again to make the filter appeal to more buyers we wanted to use genuine Japanese matting. However the standard 38mm Jap matting would not allow enough sheets into the filter. After lengthy negotiations  we came up with a 15mm sheet, they take standard 38mm sheets add a little more binding agent and re compress it through massive heated rollers to form the 15mm sheets in 2m x 1m lengths. This forms a vastly firmer and more compact sheet allowing more than twice the amount into any given space. The 2m x 1m sheets can easily be cut and formed into cartridges to suit any size or shape of filter.

Evolve jap mat carridge

This cartridge holds 23 small sheets measuring 500mm x 250mm, in total that’s well over a 2m x 1m sheet in each cartridge.

Evolve 6000 bio

This biological Evolve 6000 holds 138 of my smaller sheets which equates to almost 6 2m x 1m sheets which is a vast amount of biological media and is suitable for going after any type of standalone drum.

The Evolve 2000 has one biological bay i.e. space for either a Jap mat cartridge or a one bay stainless K1 basket.

The Evolve 4000 has two biological bays i.e. space for two matting cartridges or a two bay basket OR a matting cartridge AND a K1 basket.

The Evolve 6000 has three biological bays i.e. space for three matting cartridges or a three bay basket OR any combination of both.

As mentioned earlier the entire contents of the Evolve filters can be selected by the purchaser. They decide what biological media they wish to include. Up to now the main seller has been with a combination of both moving bed K1 and a cartridge of Japanese matting. As far as I am aware this is a totally unique filter in that respect, no other filter can incorporate moving bed and matting. In my own personal experience over the years matting has always proven more stable than K1, but K1 does seem to poses some qualities that matting lacks i.e. the protected inner surface of the K1 wheel. So a combination of both satisfies all needs

It’s impossible to give one set price for the filters because of the numerous options the customer can select. so please us the form simply select the options you want and add up the prices.
