I've changed my abs pump as fairy lights were taking an age to go out want to do a fluid flush, but I'm on my own. Can I use an easy bleed on these systems ? ( bottle to wheel type)

Old skool is bleeding from rear to front and bottom to top but as Richard has said several times the rears you can bleed with help of your own pump, a light touch of the pedal and a helper bleeds the rears. (Or you do the important part while a helper touches the pedal)
For front I think you very well can use the Eezibleed to run it from bottom to top (wheels, pump, abs-block).
Tony.
Edit: Oh don't forget to lower the pressure in the tire to 1-1.5 bar and strap the container with a cable tie. (ever seen it flying off? ☺)

Tricky discussion about flushing the brakesystem myself with my better half: The past two weeks I had the driveway done, a shovel levelled the ground, all new tiles and gray basalt between them. "You are not going to do that you hear!" (ouch)

Rears are simple enough on your own. They are on the power circuit only so use a stick to put pressure on the pedal, attach a tube to one of the rear bleed nipples and put it into your bleeding jar. Open the bleed nipple, turn the ignition on and let the pump do the work. On the drivers side you should be able to get yourself in a position where you can see when the fluid into the jar runs clear so turn the ignition off and tighten the bleed nipple. On the other side just run the pump for roughly the same length of time. It's good that there's a nice big reservoir so unless you run it for ages, there's no danger of running out of fluid.

For the fronts, you can use an Easibleed on the hydrostatic circuit just as you would on a car with a conventional braking system.
