The patented Snorkel® Vault and Centipede® Module were specifically designed to tackle any number of the common issues that plague large scale water features such as retention and golf course ponds. They are modular in design, allowing builders and designers the flexibility to expand the system to meet their needs.
This Snorkel and Centipede system is also excellent for increasing filtration on larger pond, for swimming pond applications where a large bacteria surface area is needed for filtration and also simply for a well planted wetland on dams or lakes.
The wetland can be installed in any format - along the edge of a body of water or as a circular pool that then joins back to the pond or lake via a stream or multiple waterfalls. It really is that simple and effective and not just for large pond systems. A pond as small as 5 x 6 meters will benefit from the system whilst also adding the interest of the Aquatic plantings and wildlife a wet land supports.
This unique system has been modeled directly from nature. According to David Braun with The Nature Conservancy, “Wetlands, and the plants found within them are wonderful filters; they trap sediments and remove chemicals . . . water that passes through them is much cleaner, and they provide a valuable habitat for wildlife.”
Features and Benefits
• Highly effective at removing sediment (suspended solids) from the pond.
• Easily access collected sediment with the Snorkel® Vault, reducing the need for costly and invasive dredging.
• Improves water clarity.
• Strips excess nutrients from the water column, reducing algae and the physical and chemical maintenance that goes along with removing algae.
• Removes toxic metals, chemicals, and hydrocarbons flushed into the system via storm water with the help of plants and beneficial bacteria.
• Works on earth bottom and liner membrane ponds.
• Easily retrofitted onto existing ponds.
• Create a waterfall and stream by designing the wetland filter system off the perimeter of the pond.
• Add a natural aesthetic to the pond design with aquatic plants and stone. • Ideal for retention pond construction and restoration.
