Nexus aqua easy 200.

Recommended Posts

Looking at a nexus aqua eazy 200 for a 12000L pond build. It rates for a 18k system but with a flow rate of 10k per hour. Is it possible to run more flow through this size nexus or is it worth going for the next size, next size is a massive jump in $$. 

Sincerely...nexus noob.

Hey mate so your looking at 200 nexus ? Second hand ? 

You can flow a bit more through them but the fast the water goes the less it will catch probably. 

I’d stick to around the 10,000 maybe a bit more.

Yeah mate looking at a brand new 200, just wondering if 10k is enough for a 12k pond, it says it is rated for an 18k water volume. Have always aimed for 5-6 times turn over. Would it be sufficient as a stand alone unit.

Brand new 220 I think is the latest model. 

My 210 is the same as a 220 except the 220 has micro k1 in the centre of it in the static chamber. 

I would say yes as it holds a lot of media. 

What I have done with mine is I’ve use a 16-500 pump and some flow goes to a different tank that doesn’t flow into the nexus. 

So what you could do is get a big pump which ever you preferred brand is and bleed off the main line for extra circulation in the pond.
