    If it was me I would move the eazy pod but instead of just pump feeding it how about fitting a skimmer To eazy pod and back to pond, gravity and pump return.
    Then after the 4 chamber make a moving bed up for loads more bio.

    The way you have the eazy at the moment isnít great as itís mainly mechanical with Ltd bio, and the 4 chamber is doing that really.

    The cost of 2 easy pods won't be far off the cost of a Draco drop in drum.

    Wonder if you could drop a Draco into the first multibay chamber?

    If that's possible it solves all problems in one go and doesn't involve any new pipework or a change to existing footprint.

    Only thing I'm not sure of is whether the drop in range has fittings to fit into the multibay. You'd need to check.
