Powerful 4-Stage Water Purification

Hydra Filtron’s 4-Stage Water Purification, goes beyond the conventional 3 stage filtration (Mechanical, Biological, Chemical), with the incorporation of the revolutionary Hydro-Pure technology that uses Hydroxyl Radicals (•OH) to accelerate the startup time from the usual 4-5 weeks to within 1 week, reduce water odour, and retain a crystal clear tank.

It is the first canister filter in the world to incorporate the Hydro-Pure Technology into its design.

Stage 1

Description Function
3DM Nuggets
  • Breaks down large solids and traps suspended particles
  • Provides a high surface area for beneficial bacteria which helps break-down toxic waste (e.g. Ammonia and Nitrites) biologically

Stage 2

Description Function
BioTrap Sponge
  • Breaks down finer solids and traps suspended particles
  • Provides surface area for beneficial bacteria for further biological purification of toxic waste

Stage 3

Description Function
3DM Beads Provides highest surface area for beneficial bacteria which help break-down toxic waste biologically
Fine Filter Wool Removes fine particles
Carbon Pad Adsorbs dissolved organic compound and heavy metals to maximize efficiency of the Hydro-pure Technology

Stage 4

Description Function
Hydro-Pure Technology
  • Prevents New Tank Syndrome which is the main cause of fish death in new tanks by constantly breaking down protein, and detoxifying Ammonia (NH3) and Nitrite (NO2)
  • Reduces water change
  • Produces crystal-clear water
  • Reduces water odours by the oxidization of Sulphur-based elements which causes smell in the water

Understanding Hydro-Pure Technology

We provided the below diagram to help you understand the technology better. Phase 1 is where your aquarium water enters the Hydro-Pure Technology chamber, Phase 2 is where the reaction takes place and Phase 3 is the end result.
