The Importance of Pond Filtration

Water and filtration go hand in hand. It is the reason you probably have filtered water in your home or opt for bottled water. There are three main occurrences of naturally purified water: mechanical, biological, and evaporation. The first is mechanical, as water is along the surface of the earth it can pass through soil, gravel, and rocks into aquifers that can be drilled into as a water source. The next is biological with water passing through forests, grasslands, or wetlands and plants absorbing chemicals from the water and helping to compete for nutrient loads. The final form, is through the evaporation. This process separates water from other materials at a microscopic level for evaporation and when it condensates creating rain there is only water left.
