Americo Filter Mat not only traps debris efficiently, it is affordable, durable, compaction resistant and easy to clean.
The "Cream" or Coarse filter mat is the most popular biological filtration media. It is available in 1.25" and 2.0" thicknesses. The 2.0" material is used exclusively in virtually all US manufactured pond skimmers and waterfall units. The open character of this media allows for high volumes of water to pass through without clogging while providing optimal surface area to facilitate bacterial colonization. The total surface area of this material is 49.6 square foot of material.
