AquaClear Powerhead 70 is a multifunctional pump that delivers outstanding performance for various aquarium applications. It efficiently drives undergravel filters, as well as circulates and aerates aquarium water. It can also be connected to protein skimmers, which are essential devices for most marine aquariums. Freshwater aquariums also benefit from additional currents in many applications.
Using a Powerhead 70 in combination with an AquaClear Quick Filter provides added safe mechanical filtration for cleaner water conditions and protects baby fish. PowerHead 70 includes a unique reverse flow feature that forces water down the undergravel riser stem and beneath the gravel. This helps promote bacterial growth from the bottom up. Injection of oxygen-rich water beneath the undergravel bed supports superior conditions for beneficial nitrifying bacteria.
