The Bacteria House Media is a ceramic that has been heat treated at 1300°c for 60hrs. This tremendous amount of heat causes the ceramic to break its internal bonds thereby creating an extremely porous structure that has a much greater surface to allow very large bacteria populations to colonise within the Bacteria House Media .
Due to the large quantities of tiny holes in the Bacteria House Media, mechanical filtration is also achieved. Large organic solids and decaying matter are degraded at a far greater speed than conventional media.
One of the key elements of the Bacteria House Media is that it reacts in a seemingly 'electrostatic' manner with floating organic matter causing an increase in adhesion rate. This produces clear clean water at a rapid rate. Water in its natural state creates multiple bonds with surrounding water molecules creating a cluster. The Bacteria House Media emits FAR infrared rays that break the bonds of the neighbouring water molecules thereby allowing more oxygen to be dissolved in the water.
