What was the Legendary Medusa is now known as the X2.
We changed the name to reflect the many changes we have made to this most unusual filter. We also added a second size to this line up, the 6.0 model for ponds up to 20,000 gal. The tank and internals new design all reflect a filter that has advanced to the point it was only right to give it a new name. The X2 provides even greater flows with less restriction than the Medusa.
The X2 solves the age old problem of how to filter a large pond while only using one filter.
The problem: Pond is 20 to 25 thousand gallons. You want to turn it over about every 2 hours. A 1/4 hp pump will put out about 5000 gallons an hour. This means you need two filter systems to accomplish this and stay with energy efficient pumps or a giant pool pump moving 10,000 gallons an hour and costing you an arm and a leg in energy costs.
The Solution: AlphaONEX2 or AquaBeadX2
With this filter you can run two 1/4 hp or two 1/3 hp pumps and only pull about 5 amps total with the 1/4 hp pumps or 7.6 amps total with the two 1/3 hp pumps.
The X2 is designed in such a way that all valves and internals of the filter are double that of a regular filter. At no time does each pumps water pathway get smaller than a 2" opening. Every thing is double on this filter so that we maximize the flow potential of each pump. Everything is double on this filter except the price, you'll spend less money on 1 X2 than installing 2 individual filters.
The X2 is designed with the same integrity as the AquaBead and AlphaONE filters. Designed to maximize the flow and efficiency of today's modern koi pond pumps.
We remain committed to providing the most energy conscious filtration products in the industry.
