    You'll probably get away with up to a day at this time of year due to the excess ammonia etc being produced.

    Are you using the mature media from your old filter in the new one?

    Hi 2000
    Thank you for your reply,yes the old media will be used,i think i can swivel the easy pod around the bottom drain pipe and extend the output pipe to the pump to give me room for the new 300 filter installation and remedial pipe work and change over will only be a few hours.

    I would move the eazy pod out of the way and just pump water through just to keep the media healthy.
    If you plan to do it this way theres no pressure to botch things to get it going if things don't quite go to plan.
