Pond Vertical Vortex Regulator

The Hydrovex® Pond Vertical Vortex Regulator operates using the forced vortex principle. Discharge is controlled by an air filled vortex that reduces effective flow area through its oulet orifice. This allows the use of orifice areas 4-6 times larger than typical for the same flow rate profile.  A larger orifice opening reduces the risk of clogging or blocking by debris. 

The Hydrovex® Pond's conical inlet and integral riser causes the regulator to operate in full vortex flow mode with minimal head above the discharge elevation.

The Hydrovex® Pond are constructed from corrosion resistant 304 stainless steel, have no moving parts and work solely on water pressure.  They are easy to install and require little to no maintenance.

These vortex flow regulators come in sizes ranging from 2" to 32", and can handle flow rates up to 0.2 cfs.
