Tank/Media Calculator

With this calculator, you use a tank's flow rate and underbed/bed depth to calculate suface area, service flow, litres/m, and more for tank or media.

When it comes to optimal filtration, you need to be sure you’re choosing the right filter media. This calculator uses a tank’s flow rate and underbed/bed depth to calculate surface area, service flow, liters per minute, and more for sound media selection. You’ll get the verifiable data required to select a filter that’s equipped to handle the specifications of your filtration environment. From there, it’s easy to browse Wateropolis products to find a ceramic filter that matches your needs.

This is a plug-and-play calculator that’s free to use. Just input your variables, choose your desired method of measurement and the calculator will do the rest!
