This is not a sand filter. Ultima II is a filter that uses a sand-filter canister. The internal components are of a completely different design than the internal components of a swimming pool sand filter. The sand filter canister has been used to keep manufacturing costs down.

These filters use water pressure instead of air for backflushing.

  The Maximum Pond Size shown indicates the maximum pond size for greatest biological effeciency of a given system. Pond size can also be significantly smaller than the maximum rating. By using a larger system on a smaller pond, you will only further increase the biological cleanliness of the pond environment. Likewise, the pond could also be slightly larger than the rating on a system provided that there was not a significant fish load.
