Replacement Media

Various Bio Clean products utilize media to provide better effectiveness in our stormwater solutions. Our biofiltration media – WetlandMEDIA™ – includes greater plant growth and pollutant removal in the Modular Wetlands® System. The second type is BioMediaGreen™, which is a filtration media that comes in inexpensive lightweight boxes and is used in the pretreatment stage of the Modular Wetlands® System.

Replacement Media Products


The Modular Wetlands® System utilizes a proprietary blend of bioretention media that outperforms standard sand filters, bioretention systems and standard subsurface flow wetlands. The Bio Clean WetlandMEDIA™ provides greater plant growth, moisture retention, evapo-transpiration, and pollutant removal while traditional bioretention media, consisting of compost/ organics and sand, has been known to have negative effects, such as leaching nutrients.


  • No organics
  • Removes phosphorus
  •  48% void space
  • Greater surface area
  • Maximum evapo-transpiration
  • High ion exchange capacity
  •  Lightweight


BioMediaGREEN™ is an amazing material changing the way we think of filtration media. Most systems utilize a granular media that needs to be contained, is heavy in weight and difficult to replace. In contrast, BioMediaGREEN comes in lightweight blocks making it inexpensive to ship and simple to replace. This particular media is present in a few capacities within the Modular Wetlands® System Linear stormwater system. First, it is utilized in the pretreatment stage within the Modular Wetlands pre-filter cartridges. There is over 25 sq.ft. of surface area per cartridge, and the media itself removes over 80% of TSS and 90% of hydrocarbons. Another ultimate advantage of the pre-filter cartridges are that they prevent pollutants that cause clogging from migrating to the biofiltration chamber. Second, the plant propagation layer of media bedding on the surface of the MWS Linear creates a hearty layer that supports and sustains vegetation.


  • Made of various oxides to promote ion exchange of
    dissolved pollutants
  • 80% void space allows for double the contact time
    compared to granular media
  • Excellent physical filtration and hydraulic capacity
  • Perlite can also be used
