A compact member of the Nexus family, the EazyPod (AKA Easy Pod Filter) is a mechanical and biological filter system for koi ponds up to 2,666 US gallons or 5,300 US gallons on ponds with smaller goldfish or shubunkins). The EazyPod utilizes static K1 Micro, which provides enhanced biological benefits, even when using the EazyPod solely as a mechanical waste filter.
The EazyPod filtration system gives water quality and clarity that surpasses all expectations. The nature and volume of the K1 Micro means, that when static, apart from being a very efficient mechanical filter, there is more than enough surface area for beneficial bacteria to colonize. Therefore on a smaller pond, the Pod is an excellent complete filter.
The EazyPod is available in grey or green colors and also can be supplied as an EazyPodAir, with an Air Pump 70.

How the EazyPod works
Water from the pond enters the EazyPod Complete via the inlet, then flows around the circumference of the outer chamber of the EazyPod, 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 is incredibly simple to clean. An air pump is needed for cleaning which agitates the K1 Micro to free up any debris and waste that has built up within the filter.
EazyPodAir models are supplied with a 70 litre per minute air pump and accessory kit.

- pond water pump
- filter cleaning setup
I setup the filter 4 days ago, today I have perfectly clear water. I love the ease and thoroughness of the filter cleaning setup. I was a little disappointed that the 'complete' package did not include a pond water pump, but that was a minor inconvenience. I will be buying another one for my new pond next spring!
Bought a Eazypod filter, had a shipping problem not associated withPlay It Koi and those guys got on it and I got a replacement filter ASAP. I have nothing but good things to say about this company.
