The 'Drop In' Drum

The concept was to come up with a product that could drop in without a single modification to the original filter. It then had to be extremely easy to "wire up" and commission and then it had to be easy to maintain, with everything easily replaceable. It also had to have all the features needed to make a drum work but keep it within the chassis of the drum to allow it to be installed in almost any situation.

  • The remotely sited controller has start / emergency stop buttons and a knob allowing you to change the length of wash. LED indicator shows the length of time between washes in minutes. Option to utilise a forced wash at either 45 or 99 minutes (This is triggered only if an automatic wash has not completed within the specified time). It also has 2 leads - one to plug in to the mains supply (110v and 230v, auto selectable) and one to plug in to the drum. Status of the unit is via 4 colour coded LEDs. We didn't think we could make it any simpler than that.
  • Fully sealed nylon bodied water valve
  • Low voltage so that only 12 volts DC is anywhere near your pond water.
  • Designed to run without a noisy and power hungry wash pump in most circumstances (they are available if required). On standby the unit can use less than 1/2 watt and in full wash mode, use 35 watts. It is entirely possible to run it off a car battery for prolonged periods of time.
  • 77 micron stainless steel screen.
  • 2 pin ancillary out from the control box facilitating you being able to utilise to your own requirements
  • Quick release/change UV Resistant DPM Drum Seal
  • External short shaft, rim drive motor
