Thread: New filter

  1. #1

    New filter

    Hi all,

    Ive managed to pick up a decent second hand eazypod, Ive ppd the k1 and gave it a thorough clean. Gaz (aurora koi) has advised running it alongside the pressure filter I currently have, so my question is the order, is it:

    a) pump -> eazypod -> pressure filter, or
    b) pump -> pressure filter -> eazypod

    Or doesnt it matter. Thought Id ask on here cos Gaz is probably getting sick of all my questions New filter

    pump to pressure filter then the eazy pod..

    pressure filter is mainly a mechanical filter removing particles ,,, eazypod works best as a biological filter.. do the reverse ie pump - eazypod - pressure filter will cause the easy pod to block up then over flow.

    Hi members, I have just joined and have exactly the same scenario. I had an 850 gallon pond gravity fed but suffered a leak which we couldn't find so went for a liner and pressurised system, which left the Easypod redundant. As my pump is a Superfish 8000 running a Spinclean 30000 for only 850 gallons I thought running as follows- Pump - 55 UV - Spinclean - easy pod (raised above pond height) back to pond.
    I have 17 koi ( overstocked I know) varying from 8" up to 14" and thought the extra filtration would help. Current water is crystal clear and happy fish. I remember an annoying thing about the Pod was when cleaning the K1 often flowed over and ended up in the pond, any thoughts and ideas much appreciated.
