The BioSmart is a flow-through filter that is both innovative and efficient. It undertakes biological and mechanical filtration and offers maximum oxygenation. With a sludge drain that allows for easy removal of coarse debris, the BioSmart is built for work - there is no need to remove or manually unclog the filter foams. Distinct filter zones promote the settlement of beneficial bacteria responsible for different phases of the nitrogen cycle, increasing the conversion of harmful ammonia in the pond. The BioSmart is Nature-friendly technology with positive results for local wildlife and fish stock. With a built-in cleaning indicator and water temperature display, the unit requires minimal maintenance. The BioSmart UVC 1600 with included UV Filtration is for ponds up to 1,600 gallons; the BioSmart 5000/10000 for up to 10,000 gallons. For maximum effect it can be combined with the Vitronic 18 - 36 Watt UV Clarifiers. When used in conjunction with the BioSmart filter, the AquaMax Eco Classic 1200-2700 or AquaMax Eco Premium 2000-3000 and the Vitronic UV Clarifier qualify for the OASE Water Guarantee.

AMERICAN VALVE 3-in Dia Flexible PVC Elbow Fittings
Item # 23486 Model # RE75
Tighten the clamp very well and it won't pop off like the one it came with and it doesn't leak.
I called OASE and asked for an explanation of the above. Unfortunately they are too bloated and monolithic to actually let a customer talk to an engineer. Instead I got a receptionist that their "policy" dictated, had to act as a liaison between the guy who knew stuff. After a couple of days of relayed information, I gave up, returned the unit, and started making my own.
Based on the many positive reviews I beleive this filter does SOMETHING to improve water quality, but good grief, what a stupid way to design a filter. You could get so much more performance out of a well designed box and its not that hard to do. (which is why there are so many youtube videos on how to do it)
I bought this filter knowing that, based on the specs, it would be overkill for their pond. Turns out, that hasn't been a bad thing. The water is clearer than it has ever been, we've been able to keep fish for the first time in years, and the amount of fussing we have to do has decreased significantly.
The one thing I will point out is that the outlet is gravity fed, and is about halfway up the unit. There is also a gravity-fed cleanout at the bottom of the unit that needs a downward slope leading away from the pond to drain properly. Essentially, the filter needs to be higher than ground level. So if you prefer to screen it in some way, keep in mind that you will need to work in elevation as well.

Apart from above unit works great. Couldn't see my fish before but next day almost completely clear. Hard to believe after the state the pond was in before.
