How It Works
Tired of cleaning your pond filter? Fed-up with washing filter brushes and squeezing filter sponges over and over again, in all weathers? The EazyPod Automatic is the solution.
The EazyPod Automatic is a self-cleaning, mechanical and biological filter system for garden ponds up to 2,640 US Gallons.
The integrated control box contains an adjustable timer which initiates a cleaning cycle automatically – meaning your filter will clean itself even when you’re not there!
Inside the control box, the electronic connector blocks control the automated waste valve, along with your choice of circulating pump (not supplied). It even houses an integral air pump which kicks in automatically to clean the K1 Micro media.
Crystal clear, healthy water is achieved by K1 Micro filter media, which also provides enhanced biological benefits by way of its protected surface area.
Automatic Cleaning – Even when you’re not there
The K1 Micro is cleaned by the integrated air pump located inside the control box, that is connected to the air line in the EazyPod Automatic, which in turn goes to an air ring in the base of the inner chamber. The air ring has small holes in it which causes the K1 Micro to move and therefore clean itself.
During the cleaning cycle, the finer particles escape into chamber from the K1 Micro. This waste water will be automatically dumped via a 1½ inch motorised ball valve.
EazyPod Automatic Cleaning Cycle
Cleaning is fully automated on the EazyPod Automatic, and is controlled by a built-in timer, which is factory set at one clean every 3 days, however, this is easily adjustable to fit in with your pond requirements.
The EazyPod Automatic will run a cleaning cycle which lasts approximately 6 and a half minutes.
EazyPod Automatic cleaning cycle:
■ Adjustable timer kicks in to start a cleaning cycle.
■ The amber light on the control box illuminates.
■ Control box automatically switches circulating pump off.
■ Air pump inside the control box is switched on to clean the K1 Micro media.
■ After the K1 Micro media has been cleaned, the automated waste valve opens.
■ The EazyPod Automatic is drained to waste.
■ The automated waste valve closes. (Both green and amber lights are illuminated)
■ When the waste valve is fully closed, the air pump is switched off.
■ When only the green light is illuminated, the circulating pump switches back on.
■ EazyPod Automatic returns to filtration mode.
*NOTE: If the circulation pump does not switch on, then the waste valve is not fully closed and you will see both the green and amber lights illuminated. This safety feature is built in to ensure that you cannot empty your pond.
Adjusting the Cleaning Cycle
If you do not want to have your EazyPod cleaned once every 3 days, as is factory set, you can alter the cleaning frequency to suit your needs. Simply turn SCREW A and SCREW B to point to the different digits using the sequences shown in the tables below:
Use a pozi-drive screwdriver to turn the screw head, so the arrow on the dial points to the appropriate digit.
SCREW A - This screw sets the time of the cycle. (Factory set pointing to 10 d)
SCREW B - This screw sets the frequency as a percentage of the time set above. (Factory set pointing to 30%)
Use only in Pump Fed Installation
