Constructed out of durable woven plastic, Matala sheets are ideal for mechanical filtration (dirt and debris removal) in Koi ponds. These mats are easily cleaned with a hose or the majority of the dirt can be dislodged by simply dropping or beating the mat on a hard surface. Available in a variety of "densities" for removing a variety of particel sizes. Low density mats have a course, more open, weave and are ideal for catching large debris, while high density mats have a fine weave, better for filtering out fine particles.
For best results, multiple pads of different densities should be "staged" so that the water passes through progressively finer pads. This distributes the waste load more evenly and requires cleaning less frequently.
Matala sheets can easily cut with a box cutter to fit into skimmers and waterfall boxes.
