There is another huge difference between Clarity and other protein skimmers – they are not just protein skimmers, but Trickle towers and complete biological filters in their own right.
The Clarity CL-3 is recommended for 3000 Litres per hour.
We recommend these units as an EXCELLENT add on to your pond, they take out an incredible amount of protein.
Clarity protein skimmers were developed in Norway for both commercial fish farming operations and Koi ponds. They represent the latest technology in protein skimming as they work on a somewhat different principle to conventional skimmers. It has always been more difficult to get efficient protein removal from fresh water applications since bubble sizes produced with fresh water are large in comparison to salt water applications and therefore skimmers tend to be less efficient in fresh water. Clarity has overcome this problem using patented design technology and these units work just as well with fresh water applications and are super efficient. So efficient are they that they not only remove DOC (Dissolved Organic Carbon), proteins and fine solids from the water, but they also lower Nitrate and Phosphate levels substantially, something which normally requires very special filter equipment.
However there is another huge difference between Clarity and other protein skimmers - they are not just protein skimmers, but Trickle towers and complete biological filters in their own right.
Treatment with Clarity™ gave approximately 40% reduction in total nitrogen, nitrite and nitrate in a 30,000L fish pond after just 9 days with recirculation every 5 hours.
Please note that the water source contained approximately 67kg live fish which were being fed 0.8kg food daily throughout the test.
Clarity units need no forced air input or venturis to create the foam, unlike other protein skimmers. Apart from the fabulous efficiency, they only need low power pumps to run them so running costs are very low. The new Clarity models shown right now feature twin waste collection pots and the waste outlet can be on the right or left.
