Your Inpond All-in-One is the ‘life support system’ for your pool. It includes: the pump to move the water through the filter and to the fountain/waterfall, the filter to trap dirt and clean the water and the LED to enhance the display in the evening. It is easy to clean and look after but it is worth understanding yours.
If keeping fish, the pump and filter must be run constantly. Water movement from the pump (via the fountain or waterfall) increases essential oxygen in the water for the fish. The friendly bacteria within the life support system that maintain a healthy pool (see How to Introduce fish successfully) also require a flow of oxygen rich water to live. If the ‘life support system’ is turned off for more than a couple of hours oxygen levels will drop and the population of friendly bacteria with be reduced.
Here we open the unit and explain what goes on inside.
