The GCTek Vortek SS Delux Prefilter allows you to add a prefilter that separates all debris prior to the pump. Water flows to the Vortek SS Delux prior to the pump where the debris is removed either by the settlement of heavier non buoyant debris or by the lighter, buoyant debris will rise into the floating media pack where it is caught and held in a relatively calm area within the pac. This is where it waits until it is backwashed out. The water quality is increased due to the debris being held in place calmly instead of being broken down by the extreme agitation of the turbulence of the pump strainer basket. No more dirty strainer baskets to clean on a daily basis. Comes complete with all plumbing shown plus an extra swing check valve and 3 way valve. All you have to add is regular pvc parts and fittings to fit your application.

Weekly backwashings are recommended and very easy to do. Just move a couple of valves and turn on the media agitator allowing it to run for a couple of minutes. During this process the media balls and debris are exposed to over a 100 cu. ft. per minute of air that breaks up accumulated debris, algae, fish poop, etc. What goes on inside the tank is very violent during this time and anything inside the unit is broken into minute particles that are easily backwashed out of the unit.
