Complete filtration with UVC

A compact member of the Nexus family, the EazyPod Complete is a mechanical and biological filter system for garden ponds up to 10,000 litres. The EazyPod Complete utilises static K1 Micro, which provides enhanced biological benefits, even when using the EazyPod Complete solely as a mechanical waste filter. Available in Grey or Granite Green colours.

EazyPod Complete Green

Overview

Unlike the EazyPod and EazyPodAir, the EazyPod Complete benefits from having an integrated 18 Watt UVC built in to the inlet section of the filter. This makes it a complete filter system in one, helping to eradicate green water, therefore delivering crystal clear and healthy water for your fish.

How the EazyPod Complete works

Water from the pond enters the EazyPod Complete via the inlet, cascading around the 18 Watt UV-C bulb, where any algae will be exposed to the UV-C radiation.


The water then flows around the circumference of the outer chamber of the EazyPod Complete, passing through the stainless steel grill causing many of the larger solids to be filtered out and settle in the base of the outer chamber. This is the first stage of mechanical filtration.


As water enters the central chamber, through the stainless steel grill, the fine smaller solids become trapped in the mass of K1 Micro. Bio-films build up on the protected surface area within each piece of media, allowing biological filtration to take place.


After passing through the K1 Micro, the clean water then rises and overflows into the inner return pipe and flows back to the pond via the outlet.


The EazyPod Complete is incredibly simple to clean. The connected air pump is used during the cleaning cycle to agitate the K1 Micro to free up any debris and waste that has built up within the filter.


All EazyPod Complete models are supplied with a 70 litre per minute air pump and accessory kit.

Installing the EazyPod Complete

PUMP-FED INSTALLATION ONLY
By this we mean that if your pump is going to be used to supply the water to the filter, and the filtered water then returns back into your pond via gravity, i.e. down a waterfall, or through a large diameter pipe, this is referred to as PUMP FED (i.e. the water is fed to the filter using a pump).

Frequently Asked Questions

EazyPod Complete
Can an old EazyPod be adapted to take smaller K1 Micro?
Yes, 18 litres of K1 Micro can be used. No adaptations are necessary. K1 Micro offers increased surface area and may provide clearer water.
Can EazyPod be upgraded to automatic cleaning?
No, the EazyPod Automatic is configured differently and would have to be purchased separately.
Is EazyPod a complete filtration system? Will I need anything else?
EazyPod is a complete mechanical and biological filter, trapping debris and breaking down biological waste from fish. A basic EazyPod on its own is not supplied with a pump (to pump water to it from the pond,) or an airpump, to clean it. You’ll also need a separate UVC (like evoUV) to combat green water...
What is EazyPod Automatic?
EazyPod Automatic is an EazyPod which can automatically clean its own media. Available with or without UVC, EazyPod Automatic has a control box which can be set by the user to clean itself on a timer, as little or as often as they require. EazyPod Automatic has a built-in can clean when you’re not there...
Can EazyPod be run gravity-fed?
The EazyPod and EazyPod Air can be converted to gravity feed, there are instructions on how to do this in the EazyPod manual which can be downloaded here. The EazyPod Complete and Automatic EazyPods cannot be gravity fed.
Can EazyPod Automatic be gravity-fed?
No, it’s not possible to run EazyPod Automatic as a gravity fed filter. The Nexus 220 and 320 can be gravity fed with the addition of the Automatic upgrade
Media is escaping and being discharge to waste when cleaning my Eazypod
This can happen if the outer steel mesh is slightly out of position, this sometimes happens during transit, remove all of the media from the biological chamber (this will stop any media becoming trapped when you tap the mesh back into place), with a large flat-headed screwdriver and hammer, gently tap...
I want to recess the EazyPod away from the pond. How do I do that?
EazyPod comes with a rubber connector which allows 4” rigid pipe to be fitted. Place the EazyPod where you want it away from the pond (the base of a pump-fed EazyPod must always be above surface of pond level, gravity fed installations the EazyPod should be level with the pond) and then use 4” pipe ...
Can an EazyPod feed a waterfall?
Only if it is at the top, behind the waterfall. Water exits a pump-fed EazyPod via gravity. It cannot then travel up hill, as the EazyPod would flood. If the EazyPod is installed as a gravity-fed filter it can feed without any alterations.
What size pump do I need for an EazyPod?
EazyPods are suitable for ponds up 10,000 litres, and we recommend that a pond is turned over once every two hours. A 5000lph pump (like a Bermuda Filter Force 5000,) would be perfect.
How do I replace the waste ball valve on my EazyPod
If you have one of the Mk1 EazyPods with a ball valve, you will need to buy a Single Union Ball Valve and a EazyPod Tank Connector.
How can I extend the cleaning cycle from 6 minutes to up to 10 minutes on my Eazypod Auto?
You first need to remove cycle timer sticker and then increase the dial from 60 to 100 so that the cycle time would increase to 10 minutes from the original 6 minutes.
What are the air stones used for that come with an EazyPod Air / EazyPod Complete?
The air stones need to sit at the bottom of the pond to provide extra aeration. You use the supplied manifold to divert the air from the air pump, so air can be used to clean the EazyPod and also to aerate the pond via the air stones. This illustration shows a common pump fed set up:
What volume of water is send to waste in my Eazypod during a cleaning cycle?
Approx 80L of water is send to waste during each cleaning cycle.Please see the manual for more information.
I want to install the EazyPod on a gravity fed system, what height will the water level be?
The measurement on gravity fed Eazypods will be 555mm from the floor to the water level inside the EazyPod. Remember to remove the black inlet pipe and make the necessary changes to the filter as shown in the instructions, as the EazyPod will arrive ready for PumpFed installations
My K1 Micro stays on the surface of the water in my Eazypod and will not sink
The K1 Micro when brand new is buoyant and will want to float on the surface of the water. This is perfectly normal. As soon as fish have been added to the pond it takes the K1 Micro approximately 24 to 48 hours to absorb the water and become semibuoyant in the EazyPod.
The K1 Micro doesn’t move well during the cleaning cycle
The air pump is either not powerful enough or there isn’t enough water in the EazyPod. Check all air fittings and line for leaks. Make sure you haven’t inadvertently added more K1 Micro than the 18 Litres.
The pond gets dirty after cleaning my Eazypod
Check that you have turned your circulating pump off, so that the dirt in the K1 Micro hasn’t returned to the pond.If the K1 Micro appears to bubble (boil) above the outlet water level during cleaning, some dirt may return back to the pond. This is not an issue.Please ensure that the EazyPod has gone...
Too much maintenance, poor clarity, or EazyPod overflowing
Make sure that you haven’t exceeded the maximum flow rate. Please ensure that the EazyPod has gone through a minimum of 2 to 3 cleaning cycles.
There is no power to my Eazypod automatic control box.
Check the wiring is correctly installed. Seek advice from a suitably qualified electrician if in doubt. Check the mains connection to the control box. Seek advice from a suitably qualified electrician if in doubt. Check the fuse inside the control box. This is located in the hinged compartment on...
EazyPod Automatic does not drain to waste
Check that the 1” ball valve on the EazyPod Automatic is in an open position. (You can check this by removing the union end from the waste valve) Is cleaning cycle fully operational. From initiating a cleaning cycle it will take 3 to 4 minutes before the automated waste valve opens. Check automated...
EazyPod Automatic does not close waste valve
You will find out that the circulation pump will not switch on and the green and amber light are both illuminated. Remove the unions from the waste valve and check for any blockages. Check the fuse inside the control box. This is located in the hinged compartment on the left hand side of the pump...
Can you retro fit an Eazypod?
No, it is not possible to retrofit an Eazypod. You can however retrofit a Nexus.
Does the UV need to be switched off on my Eazypod during the cleaning cycle?
The UV stays on throughout the process and no harm comes to the UV or the unit.
Why is the media in my Eazypod sitting high up and water is flowing down the overflow channels?
This problem occurs when the media is very blocked and the water can’t flow through it easily. The filter needs to be cleaned, preferably at least twice to flush the dirt out. This problem may occur if the filter hasn’t been cleaned for a while or a Blanketweed treatment has been carried out and the...
How can I extend the draining time of my Eazypod Automatic?
To extend the time that the waste valve is open you can change the setting on one of dials on the timers inside the auto box. The bottom dial on the right hand timer is set at 30%, if you change that dial to 20% or 10% the waste valve will open sooner in the cycle and stay open longer.
What is the purpose of the black inlet pipe on an Eazypod?
The pipe in the inlet performs 2 functions – It allows the water to remain at the correct height for cleaning when the pump is switched off.  Without this, the water would empty back into the pond, and there wouldn’t be enough water left in the filter to allow the media to move. It acts as ...
