Savio Springflo Filter Media
Ultra Bio-Media is a sinking media with a very high bio-film surface that is 3 to 5 times greater
than other plastic media, such as bio-balls, various mats and foams, beads, ribbon and brush type media, etc.
Superior bacterial adhesion and colonization is achieved due to the surface texture and grade of plastic used.
Additionally, beneficial bacteria is able to build up into a bacterial matrix due to the excellent interstitial spacing within the media.
Under a patent pending process, Ultra Bio-Media is seeded with bacteria and barley to kick-start the nitrification
process and to contribute to the control of string algae.
Ultra Bio-Media is the premier choice for any biological filtration application, i.e., filter retrofits, bio-reactors,
home made biological filters, etc. Possible biological applications of this media are limited only to one's imagination.
While Ultra Bio-Media may be similar in design to the Ultima II Filter media, it is actually a little bit longer and larger in diameter.
Ultra Bio-Media is sold by the cubic foot. 8 lbs. of media is approximately 1 cubic foot of loose media; 4 lbs. of media is
approximately 1/2 cubic foot of loose media. Contents may settle during shipping.
Individual pieces of the Ultra Bio-Media are approximately 1/2" in length by 1/4" in diameter.

Savio Springflo Filter Media

Savio Springflo Bio Filter Media's performance is unmatched. Unlike the copies,
this patented ribbon encourages better adhesion and proliferation of bacteria using
a special formulation of polypropylene and calcium carbonate. The textured surface is
embossed with millions of dimples to rapidly secure and develop beneficial microorganisms.
It does not clog and resists channeling and compaction in up-flow and horizontal flow
pressure filter chambers. Negative buoyancy keeps it in place.
Savio Springflo is easy to clean. Simply shake it and drain the filter. Other media is prone to clogging, requiring rigorous cleaning which disrupts healthy bacteria. Savio Springflo is very durable, lasting 3-5 years.
Savio Springflo Bio Filter Media provides enormous surface area while being light and compact. Each roll contains 180 square foot of surface area, suitable for up to 3 cubic feet of filter volume. Easily self dispenses. Simply hold above the filter and start unwinding media from the inside center. I dispenses itself!
Benefits of Springflo
Better Filtration - Dimpled ribbon creates millions of surfaces for bacteria.
Works Best When Dirty - Designed to filter while dirty without clogging.
Encourages Living Bacteria - Stops constant cleaning. Great for living bacteria.
Easy to Maintain - Just jiggle media and drain dirty water.
Each box contains 180 square feet of surface area.
Suitable for up to 3 cubic feet of filter volume.
High Surface Area
Springflo contains more surface area for bacterial colonization than other
materials with similar volume.
It is possible to pack more than 500 square feet of useable Springflo surface area into one cubic foot of filter core.
Water can easily flow through the thin ribbon construction, minimizing the formation of "dead spots."
In trickle type filters, waste can easily track along the ribbon, enhancing performance.
The space, or void, between the strands of Springflo is adjustable by simply expanding or contracting the placement of the media.
