    the "easy"

    EA has a new "wringle" in their filtration system. Looking for anyone who can make comments on it.

    I can't afford it. However, thanks to the help of Maurice, I am about to put a basket of static K in my home-made vortex surrounding the pump suction. Will let you know if it works.

    Dags: I have asked on different boards whether the EAsy or the Answer is preferable in a situation where you have algae filaments breaking off in the water. I like the notion of the EAsy, but am concerned that it would get algae glarf gumming it up, making regular clean-up a huge pain. As soon as you have some experience with it, let us know. Meanwhile, until I learn from others' experience, I'm holding my options open.

    The Eazy is not in the US yet. I'm hoping to see one when they are. I think it's going to be a lot more work than the answer. After seeing my static K1 in my Nexus, it gets drity in just a day or two. With the Answer I have only cleaned it a few times many months. I will pay the extra to run my Answers.

    I think the Eazy will be a lot better than the foam blocks.

    Ah, Tom, I'm waiting for Maurice to debate you on those points. ....Hope he does. It would educate me!

    Like I said I don't know anything about th Eazy yet. But I can't see it doing as good as a job as the Answer. Maurice talk to us my friend. Tell us what you know about the Eazy.

    Look at what Tim posted. http://members4.boardhost.com/koimag/msg/97918.html as you can see in 24 hours all the crap is caked in the Eazy already. If it was the Answer it would be in the bottom of the settling tank. How much work is it going to be on a out door system? Time will only tell.

    I think they are thinking the Eazy might help with clarity issues the Nexus has without a bead filter. I hope this is the answer to the problem. But the static K1 in the Nexus was suppose to help with this. I can tell you on my pond it didn't help at all.

    Don't get me wrong, I have two Nexus units and love them now. But they do have some issues that EA is working hard on fixing. This Eazy going to be a lot better than the foam, but I don't think it's the answer to doing away with the Answer that was designed for that filter.

    One other thing, I can see where Tim would have that problem with the crap caked on the Eazy. Look at the fish load in the tank. Most ponds are not stocked like that. So time will tell how great the Eazy is.

    I was hopeful when I placed this thread that maurice would have some comments.
    I was also hopeful that we might get some comments/adaptations for BB users.

    I hate to show my cards here folks because so many are dead against BB's but
    stop and think of what static k-1 really is doing with that application!
