OASE Filtral UVC

The OASE Filtral UVC is the ideal all-in-one solution for excellent water quality in smaller ponds and water features. Three sizes of Filtral UVC – 400, 800 and 1400 – clean and clear ponds and fountains up to 1400 gallons with a combination of mechanical and biological filtration paired with ultraviolet clarification. The units are so effective that they qualify for the OASE Clear Water Guarantee when sized as directed.

Double filter foams coarse and fine, filter pebbles and bio-media in the case provide excellent mechanical and biological filtration that quickly clears ponds up to 1400 gallons and is easily cleaned. The ultraviolet clarifier operates at a frequency that keeps organics from building up in the water for a year at a time before needing to be replaced, and operation can be monitored via sight glass from outside the pond.

The fountain head comes with three inserts that create different patterns in water from 10” to 24” deep. The Lava insert throws out a clear dome of water, the Vulkan a double tiered fleur de lis display and the Magma a directional arched spray of five individual streams. All can be adjusted via the ball joint on the telescoping tube that also varies the height of the fountain head. A valve shunts water between the upright tube and a separate side outlet, to accommodate a variety of water return options.

Setup is simple. Select the water return option you prefer, fountain head, hose or both, then drop the unit into the pond. The 15’ cord allows for a good deal of flexibility in location, and the swiveling ball joint allows perfect vertical alignment even on sloped bottoms.

Maintenance is as easy as setup. The sloped top of the case allows debris to slide off, keeping the intake holes clear. When the flow slows, just pull the unit from the water and rinse off the filters. A grounding plate protects from stray current, and the pumps are thermally protected for long service life.

Benefits of Water Features for Distributors, Contractors and Homeowners

Water features aren’t just beautiful and attractive. They also offer concrete benefits to Distributors, Dealers, Contractors and End Users, the homeowner, alike.

Homeowners

Homeowners appreciate the many ways that water enhances the view of an area. A waterfall may shimmer and sparkle in the light, while it hides an unwanted view. The surface of a reflecting pool may mirror the sky or reflect the background. At night underwater lights make water glow, ripples on the surface creating dancing bands of light that play on walls and overhanging tree canopies. And let’s not forget the sounds of water that delight the ear. Water also tames elemental extremes, warming a frigid corner so tender plants can make it through the winter, or cooling a sunny patio in the summer, or adding welcome humidity indoors.

Contractors

Contractors appreciate that homeowners love the sight and sound of water, but they really like that water features cause their projects to appreciate in value. A well-designed water feature in kit form can greatly add to the bottom line. All you need to know to specify a Water Garden or Pond-free Kit is the finished size – everything is included down to the glue and fittings. Likewise, Atlantic Project Bundles come with everything needed to add water to Hardscape walls. They install in a couple of hours, with video installation guides to eliminate any guesswork. and typically return their cost in profit. With virtually no maintenance needed, and all components designed to work seamlessly together, callbacks are eliminated.

Dealers and Distributors

Dealers and Distributors appreciate the ease and speed these products, kits and bundles can be ordered. The Catalog shows every product and lists all complementary products. Project Bundle sell sheets list all components, with a beauty image of the finished project; a single sku for every bundle makes ordering the perfect water feature easy. And working with Atlantic-OASE is easy, from ordering to delivery, with an expert Customer Service team for any questions from sale to installation.

Overall, adding a water feature to any landscape is a win-win-win. It’s an easy way to make the world go round. Whether you’re a homeowner, a contractor or a dealer/distributor, water features are the way to go! Learn more on water features and which you should install next on our blog!

World Water Day – The Health Benefits of Water

Everyone knows that water is essential to life. We can go without food for weeks (hell, I probably should) but a few days without water and we’re, well, toast. Water is life. The oldest sites we know of where unrelated people began to live together, establishing the first towns over 10,000 years ago in the Cradle of Civilization, were located along the banks of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. Our bodies reflect this dependency – we are all of us about 60% water, which makes sense on a planet whose surface is mostly covered by it. So it rings true on a deep, almost visceral level that its also essential for our well-being, not just our survival.

I’m not talking about the obvious pleasure most of us seem to feel in the presence of water. The popularity of resorts by the seashore or the lakeside, the attraction of water parks, the allure of water features seem to be nearly universal. We are drawn to water. It clearly makes us ‘feel good’, but is it just some kind of instinctive attraction to a necessary resource?

Apparently not. Research into the physical and chemical attributes of moving water has shown some interesting results. That should come as no surprise. It exhibits a number of properties that are quite literally unique. For example, we take for granted that ice floats – but it shouldn’t. The fact that the colder, solid state of water – ice – is less dense than the warmer liquid state, directly contradicts the physical laws that govern just about every other compound and element on this planet, and every other. As temperatures increase, matter expands. As volume goes up, density, by definition, decreases. Hot air rises. Cold water sinks – to a point. As temperatures drop, density increases – except in the case of water. It is densest at 38 degrees, not 32 degrees. At the lower temperature, ice becomes significantly less dense, unlike any other commonly found substance. 

The cohesion of H2O is equally fascinating. The molecules exhibit strong attachment to itself, so strong that molecules leaving the needles of a redwood through evaporation literally pull up on an unbroken chain of water, hauling a continuous stream up through capillaries from the very roots of the tree, 400 feet below, easily defeating the force of gravity. This cohesion creates the surface tension that mosquitoes hang from and lizards run across, the pseudo-membrane that pulls leaves into skimmers from across a pond.

It’s small wonder then, that the miraculous substance we take for granted actually contributes to our physical and mental health. Falling water splits electrons off neutral molecules, generating a charge in much the same way that rubbing your hand across a silk scarf generates a spark. The action of a waterfall, or the waves on a beach, or a thunderstorm, creates and spreads these charged particles, negative oxygen ions, into the surrounding air. The strongly charged ions are attracted to oppositely charged dust, pollen, mold spores, smoke and other allergens, even odors, bonding to them and dropping them out of the air – and away from our lungs. When we stand near a waterfall, natural or man-made, we perceive a freshness, almost a tingle to every breath, as we breath the purified air.

Negative oxygen ions also annihilate free radicals that attack our cells. As they enter the bloodstream, they increase serotonin production, elevating our mood and increasing alertness and energy levels. (That morning shower really does wake you and prepare you for the day.) Ions have even been shown to destroy viruses and bacteria.

So this World Water Day, let’s celebrate water in all its forms, and give thanks for the health and well-being that living water promotes, rejoicing in the knowledge that our water features really do make our lives better.

In Honor of World Book Day

I’m not quite sure where all of these World Celebration Days come from – I mean, do we really need a World Mosquito Day? Has anyone actually woken up on August 20th to purposefully celebrate mosquitoes? But I can’t help chuckling as I buy into the idea. March 5 is World Book Day, so I thought I might talk about some books that I’ve really enjoyed using, long before Google.

I’ve already mentioned Secret Teachings in the Art of Japanese Gardens, by David A. Slawson, a book I love for a number of reasons. I was always fascinated by Japanese folklore, and Slawson explains in great detail how myths and legends are honored and recreated in garden architecture. For example, there’s an ancient Asian folktale of a giant turtle that supported the island home of the immortals, their Mount Olympus. There are Turtle Islands in most classical Japanese gardens. Slawson’s excellent illustrations (the second reason I love the book) have helped me recreate them in my work. His explanations of how ancient masters used the shapes of stones to create movement are inspiring.

See the Turtle Island?

I have a couple of copies of Rick Bartel’s, The R.I.S.E Method, a How-to Guide for Designing Natural Appearing Ponds, Streams and Waterfalls. I’ve recommended his beautifully illustrated book to dozens of people who’ve attended my seminars over the years (including my eldest, who will listen to anyone except his old man.) Rick presents the concept of naturalistic rock placement as accessibly as anyone ever has. He combines well-expressed theory with step by step instruction that, properly followed, can make anyone’s work look good (including my eldest’s).

The third is one I haven’t carried as regularly lately, my Taylor’s Guide to Perennials, but when I was planting every week it never left my bag. It’s pretty sketchy – cover taped on, color plates loose – but it never needs a signal.

So my hope is, for World Book Day, I’ve helped folks remember how useful books are, even today. And as far as this silly “Day” stuff is concerned, just wait ‘til World Corgi Day.

An Innovative Wetland for Innovation Day

Did you know February 16th is Innovation Day? Perfect timing again! I mentioned an “innovative” use of Eco-Blox in a blog celebrating World Wetland Day February 2nd. I think it only appropriate that I expand on that innovative use this week.

To start with, let’s look at the word. According to Oxford Languages, the group that publishes the Oxford English Dictionary (my mom’s favorite), “innovation” means ‘featuring new methods; advanced and original’. Water matrix blocks were themselves the very definition of innovative when they were invented by Humberto Urriola, who came up with the idea of a modular drainage cell back in 1984. His Flo-Cell® was a flat three-dimensional mat that, in various configurations, captured, transported and held stormwater long enough for it to percolate back into the ground, recharging fragile aquifers, critical given the climate and erosion issues Down Under.

Almost four decades later, water matrix blocks are still used for stormwater mitigation and rain harvesting, but the latest innovation involves using their storage capacity to capture and remove even the finest sediments suspended in pond water. They’ve been used to trap sediments in dual chamber rain harvesting systems before, but this is a different application, one that combines the physics of sedimentation with the advantages of upflow bogs.

The idea is simple. First, the physics in a nutshell, because the math is beyond me. When velocity drops, solids drop out. Pump solids-laden water into an Eco-Blox chamber that’s only open at the top, with lots of partitions, and cover the top with a thin layer of gravel. The water slows to nothing if the chamber’s big enough, and forcing the water to exit upwards, through the gravel, ensures that virtually all sediments will drop out of suspension and stay in the chamber.

And sediment is only half the issue. Dissolved organics and minerals in the water, which would have fueled algae blooms, pass through that same gravel bed. Billions of bacteria thriving in the well-oxygenated nutrient-rich water strip out ammonia and nitrites, excreting nitrates right where the roots of plants spreading through the gravel can absorb them. The plants will also thrive, the water will be stripped of all organics and algae will never get a foothold.

Standard stuff, but the innovation is in the details. The appropriate number of Eco-Blox for the volume to be cleaned, the correct flow into the chamber, the right thickness to the gravel bed, the optimal plants for the artificial wetlands –that’s all pretty straightforward. The innovation is in the delivery of the sediment laden water, and the flushing of the accumulated solids in the chamber.

The delivery is a matter of shaping the bottom to accumulate solids near bottom drains, and plumbing the skimmers to pull water off top and bottom to deliver wastes to the chambers. But, you may say, there are lots of ways to gather sediments, and any gravel bed will trap them, both valid points. The trick is keeping the gravel from clogging, channeling and going septic when oxygen can’t penetrate the accumulating goop. That’s the huge advantage to creating these Eco-Blox bogs, and upflow is the key. 

Traditional downflow bogs pull water through a large volume of gravel, often feet thick, to trap organics for years, but over time channeling renders them less effective. Anaerobic zones build up with no easy way to clean them out. Downflow grids of perforated pipe, covered with a thinner layer of gravel at the bottom of ponds, address these issues, but the grids tend to clog over time and are relatively inaccessible.

Eco-Blox sediment traps are designed to efficiently collect both top and bottom water via skimmers and bottom drains, separate out solids as water passes up and out, then clean easily, flushing sediments out onto grade by turning a valve. The continuous automatic capture and easy removal of solids is the innovation. Monthly maintenance consists of turning a valve or opening a threaded cap for a couple of minutes, to flush the accumulated wastes out where they can be dried and collected – that’s some black gold there.

It’s no wonder that Botanical Gardens appreciate the idea. A filtration system based on plants that cleans and clears vast volumes of water, with no moving parts except multiple magnetic induction pumps, powerful and efficient, inexpensive to buy and run, housed in easily accessed skimmers that require only to be emptied of leaves on a weekly basis? And the system can collect the fertile organic sediments and dry them in a free-draining gravel bed at grade, whenever compost is needed?

Eureka!

Case in point: the Botanical Garden in Culiacan Sinaloa Mexico used riverwater to feed their Victoria Pool, where they showcased the leaves and blooms of the world’s largest waterlily and other aquatics. The 225’ x 30’ pool, about 3’ deep, had a number of serious leaks, so it was constantly being refilled with muddy water that never cleared. The water was so turbid from both mud and algae that you couldn’t see your hand with your arm in up to your elbow. Two 8” weirs that spanned the width of the pool upstream and downstream of the angular bridge provided the only circulation. They had installed a 10hp irrigation pump drawing about 8000 watts an hour, but had to valve it back because the high-head pump cavitated otherwise, so they couldn’t keep the whole weir covered with water. (If that sounds like a foreign language, check out this article I wrote in POND Trade Magazine, Flow, Friction and Total Dynamic Head: A Pump and Plumbing Primer for Ponds)

I’ll tell you what we did – next time.

Golden Treasure For The Pond Border

Lysimachia nummularia: The Creeping Jenny

I love to use plants along the edges of the water features I build to soften the hard edges of stone and add color and life to them. One of the plants I tend to use over and over is the Creeping Jenny or Moneywort, Lysimachia nummularia, an attractive and versatile perennial ground cover that neither rabbits nor deer will touch. 

Floating Bog, Nelson’s Water Gardens

Named for its round, coin shaped leaves, gold in color when grown in full sun, Creeping Jenny performs beautifully just about anywhere I put it. With a constant supply of moisture, along streams and pond edges, it can handle the hottest sun. Forget “creeping” – this plant positively runs in the sun, growing quickly from both its vine-like branches and long roots to cover edges both in and out of the water.

In deep shade its growth slows somewhat, leaves glowing a soft green as it carpets soil, stone and gravel alike. Easy to propagate, one plant will spread to cover many running feet of stream edge. It is vigorous almost to a fault. If it thins out in one spot simply grab a handful from somewhere else and tuck it into moist soil. It will usually root without any extra care.

As if that weren’t enough, for all you other closeted herbalists, Creeping Jenny is a mild astringent, a diuretic and an effective vulnerary – applied to open wounds its crushed leaves are antibacterial and promote healing. (I don’t know about you guys but ‘vulnerary’ is my new favorite obscure word of the day.)

Finally, those of us who appreciate a brew every now and then might be interested to know the ancient Anglo Saxons called it alehoof – ‘ale herb’ – and used it to flavor and clarify beer. What a plant!

Next Generation in Pumps for Ponds, Pond-free, Hardscape & Fountains

Pumps are the heart of all things water features: pond, pond-free, hardscape and fountain features. Without them we have no moving water to circulate, filter or entertain us.  

They are the number one thing we all use and the number one thing that is misused and misunderstood. And by that, I mean all pumps are not created equal.

You have a simple magnet driven pump commonly used in small water features or hardscapes. Easy to use, very energy efficient, easy to clean and easy to fix broken parts. The flow rates are typically lower so you can not create a large water fall with them.

Next in the line of pumps are Asynchronous and Synchronous electric. Similar in that they have a stainless-steel rotor assembly and have a vortex impeller to allow for higher water flow volume. Still lower energy consumption, easy to clean and easy to repair. The synchronous electric pump will shut down if it runs dry or something is blocking the flow and some are frost protected to -4 degrees. These pumps have a wide flow range and can be used in a wide variety of pond, pond-free, and hardscape features on a regular basis.

The direct drive pumps are one of the hardest to size and service. This type of pump has many uses from high to low flow needs. It is commonly misused because of the flow requirements. These pumps operate in a very tight window of best operating ranges. A lot of care is needed in choosing these types of pumps so they can remain in operation for many years. 

For more in-depth information on our pumps please go to www.atlantic-oase.com or seek help from an industry professional.

What’s coming in the next generation of pumps and what is already here will blow your mind, if not make you think twice about your pump choices. 

Look towards the day all water garden pumps are DC brushless motor pumps. Your drills, drivers, blowers and mowers are seeing the light of brushless motors, including the vacuum world. More power, less energy and whole lot more ingenuity. Look now and towards the future as pumps in the water feature world change too.

First to market from Atlantic-OASE: the Aquarius Eco-Expert and AquaMax Eco-Expert. The first DC brushless motor pumps for ponds, pond-free, hardscape and fountains.

Just to highlight a few things the Aquarius Eco-Expert has:

  • DC brushless motor pump, very energy efficient
  • Robust stainless-steel intake screen passes debris particles up to 3/16 great for fountain nozzle use
  • Frost protection to -4 degrees
  • Integrated Environmental Function control shut off if runs dry or clogs
  • No minimum operation head heights 
  • Integrated earth grounding plate
  • Submersed or inline
  • Water types include chlorinated pool and salt water
  • Dynamic Function control 1 preprogrammed water scene alternating fountain heights 

When paired with the Eco or EGC cloud controller you have even more option on this pump. Making this pump first on the market to claim a 12-function pre-programmed water pattern along with things like runtime, pump status and malfunctions, complete adjustment of output flow and so much more. Also, when paired with the Cloud Controller, these functions can be controlled on the EGC App from anywhere in the world. One other unique feature is that it can pair with up to nine other devices like additional pumps and ProfiLux lighting systems  

Some highlights of the AquaMax Eco-Expert include:

  • DC brushless motor pump, very energy efficient
  • Robust stainless-steel intake screen passes debris particles up to 7/16 great for filtration use
  • Frost protection to -4 degrees
  • Integrated Environmental Function control shut off if runs dry or clogs
  • No minimum operation head heights 
  • Integrated earth grounding plate
  • Submersed or inline
  • Water types include chlorinated pool and salt water
  • Seasonal Flow control switch lowers flow and wattages as water cools to 40 degrees 

You can pair the AquaMax Eco Expert with the Eco or EGC Cloud Controller as well. Making this pump first on the market to adjust seasonally for water temperatures along with things like runtime, pump status and malfunctions, complete adjustment of output flow and so much more. When paired with the Cloud Controller, just like the Aquarius Eco-Expert, these functions can also be controlled on the EGC App from anywhere in the world. Pair it with up to nine other devices including the next generation ProfiClear drum filters and ProfiLux lighting systems. 

Look for much more on the line of DC brushless motor pumps in 2021. Changing the way the world pumps water!

Getting Spooky with the InfiColor Light System

The InfiColor Color Changing Lights are so much fun to play with on a normal basis but, I was so excited to get my hands on the app to change it to fit in with the seasons! Halloween time is right around the corner, so what better time to show you some fun color combinations for October.

Did you know you can use the Atlantic Color Changing lights for more than just your water features? Be creative with them! I’ve seen some pretty unique things done with the lights, like setting a Cabo Wabo Tequila bottle on top to create a one-of-a-kind lighted fountain for a Tequila-loving client. If you’d like to see how that turned out, check out Atlantic-OASE Professional Contractor, Cazee Ponds‘ Instagram post!

How cool would it be to have color changing Jack-O-Lanterns? Since Halloween is my favorite holiday, I knew I had to give it a try! Along with the Colorfalls, I used two ring lights inside the pumpkins to get my Color Changing Halloween vibes. You can put your lights in your pumpkin in a number of different ways: cutting a hole in the top for the cord to pop out the back, a hole in the back to run the light and cord through, or, what I did, cut a hole out of the bottom of my pumpkin big enough to set the pumpkin directly on top of the light.

Using the InfiColor smartphone app, I created some Halloween custom light patterns that I thought would look festive. I was thinking oranges, purples, greens and yellows.

Customize your Halloween lights however you see fit and adjust the speed and transitions to make your yard festive for the spooky season. See some of the fun I had below!

You can also mix it up with still colors and have multiple colors displayed. I played around with changing the color of the Colorfalls and made it a different Halloween color from the pumpkins for some great color combinations!

All of the different color combinations looked so great and I couldn’t choose a favorite. If you wanted to get real advanced with it, you could always create a different custom color pattern for each light zone and time it up to change colors of each zone at the same time.

What combinations did you come up with for the Halloween season? Share them with us on social media and tag us!
