Nexus Eazy 220 & 320

How the Nexus Eazy works

Water from the pond enters the nexus via the inlet into the inner chamber which works as a vortex allowing larger solids to settle and drop out of suspension.

Water then passes through the grills in the stainless steel Eazy filter, where the finer particles are removed at the mechanical stage of filtration, thanks to the static bed of K1 Micro filter media.

The mechanically clean water then passes to the outside chamber of the nexus where the K1 Media moving bed is located for biological treatment prior to being returned to the pond.

At this stage, biological breakdown occurs through different strains of bacteria and filter feeders living on the protected surface area of each piece of the K1 Media. These bacteria convert Ammonia and Nitrite into harmless Nitrate.

Water then passes through the exit grill into the outlet, returning back to the pond.

The Eazy Filter

The Eazy is a stainless steel vessel containing the K1 Micro Media (20 litres in the Nexus 320 and 18 litres in the Nexus 220) which is located within the inner chamber of the Nexus.

After water enters the Nexus it rotates around the Eazy in the inner chamber with a downward motion allowing the larger solids to settle to the bottom of the chamber before passing through the slots of the Eazy into the static K1 Micro.

The water flows from all angles through the K1 Micro where improved mechanical filtration and settlement takes place and fine particles are caught within the K1 Micro. The water then flows through the slots in the centre column and into the outer chamber.

Biological Filtration – K1 Moving Bed

The outer chamber of the Nexus contains the moving bed of K1 Media.

100 litres of K1 Media is supplied with the Nexus 320 with the option to add an extra 200 litres of K1 Media should it be needed.

The Nexus 220 is supplied with 50 litres of K1 Media, with the option to add an extra 100 litres of K1 Media if needed.

The outer chamber is the final stage of the filter where the biological treatment of the water takes place. Biological breakdown occurs through different strains of bacteria living on the protected surface area on each piece of the K1 Media. These bacteria convert Ammonia and Nitrite into harmless Nitrate. The amount of Ammonia and Nitrite produced in the pond is dependent on feed rates and the type of food used.

Air Pump Requirements

You can increase the biological capacity of your Nexus by adding additional K1 Media into the outer chamber. You will however need to ensure that you have the correct size of air pump to enable the K1 Media to move sufficiently (see table for recommended size of air pump).

For Nexus filtration systems with the standard supplied media It is recommend that an Airtech 75 air pump is used to power the moving bed in a Nexus 220 and an Airtech 95 air pump for a Nexus 320.

    The award winning new generation range of Nexus filters cleverly combine mechanical and biological filtration into one advanced filter system, whilst being incredibly easy to clean and simple to install.

    Both the Nexus 220 and 320 feature a re-designed Eazy filter which now utilises K1 Micro filter media, in the static bed, to deliver improved levels of mechanical filtration taking out even the smallest waste particles giving a very good level of water clarity.

    Inside the main Nexus filter chamber is a massive moving bed of the award winning K1 Media delivering outstanding levels of biological filtration.

    Together this combination of filter media work to deliver crystal clear and healthy water.

    Nexus 220 and 320 filtration systems can be installed on pump fed or gravity fed setups depending on your pond configuration. The Nexus 220 is suitable for ponds up to 18,000 litres (4,000 gallons) while for larger ponds the Nexus 320 can be installed on ponds up to 34,000 litres (7,500 gallons).

Pond liner calculator

Use our simple Pond Liner Calculator to estimate the liner and/or underlay size required for your pond.

The result allows for an overlay either side of 30cms. You may wnat to increase or decrease this value depending on your pnd installation.

If you're not sure on what size you need then contact us and we can help.

Measurements are entered in meters. As an example if your pond is 254cm deep at its deepest enter 2.54.

The liner dimensions for your pond including a 30cm over lap are:
