 garden-and-koi-pond-catagory-pic.jpg  shallow-pond-aeration-catagory-pic.jpg

Aeration equipment is designed for aquariums, small tanks, ornamental ponds, and up to 40,000 gallon Koi ponds.

Aeration Equipment is designed for small Back Yard ponds to 1/4 Surface Acre ponds. For ponds 7 ft or less. Deeper than that would place undue back pressure on these compressors.

 robust-aire-catagory-pic.jpg  easy-pro-large-aeration-catagory.jpg

Our #1 line of large pond aeration systems. Designed for ponds 1/4 acre to 12 acres with a standard Kit. The major difference is the diffuser design . Fully customizable for irregular shaped or larger than 12 acres. Can aerate very deep ponds.

Aeration equipment designed for ponds ranging from 1/4 acre to 6 Acres. Very Economical and reliable. Fully customizable for irregular shaped ponds if a standard kits doesn’t fit your needs. Can aerate very deep ponds as well.

 windmill-aeration.jpg  solar-aeration.jpg

Pond aeration equipment operates on wind power. Windmills designed to aerate ponds from Back yard koi ponds to a 5 acre ponds. We even have an electrical and windmill combination package so that when the wind isn’t blowing you’ll continue to have aeration. Can be customized. 

Pond Aeration equipment that harnesses Sunlight. It’s a 24 volt system and has different units designed to aerate ponds from Back yard koi ponds to a 5 acre pond. This is the most effective solar system on the market. Don’t be fooled by cheap imitations. 

 tubing-accessoies-catogory.jpg   For extra tubing and customization of a diffused aeration systems. Includes Splitters, valve manifolds, fittings, clamps, etc. You can use these part to build your own system.

 

Diffused Aeration systems are also known as Pond aerators, Bottom up aeration, Lake Bed aeration, or Pond bubblers just to name few. Larger pond aeration kits work on the same principle as a small fish aquarium aeration system, just a larger scale. It’s not a one size fits all situation. Some pumps or compressors don't do well past 7 feet to 8 feet of depth. So, it's crucial to get the right equipment for the application. To request more information click here.

There are 4 main factors that affect the efficiency of the pond aeration diffuser

  1. The depth of the pond.
  2. The placement of the air diffuser.
  3. Electrical Amperage draw of the equipment being used.
  4. Aquatics life in the pond you’re trying to support. -If you’re stocking the pond with fish, it’s good to know the type, number of, or Pounds per acre you are placing in the pond. Bass and Crappie tend to be more sensitive to lower DO (Dissolved Oxygen) levels than Bream, perch, etc.

Each System consists of 3 bascic components.

  1. Compressors - There are different types of compressor such as Diaphragm, Linear, rocking piston, Rotary vane compressors. Each has their distinct benefits.
  2. Tubing – tubing types vary from polyethylene non-weighted tubing to HPDM weighted tubing. Remember the hose clamps and fittings. Poly non weighted tubing is normally used to run from the compressor to the ponds edge and is buried. Weighted tubing is used in the pond. It sets along the ponds bottom with having to weight it down.
  3. Diffusers - There are multiple designs on the market that work well. The older air stones have periodical maintenance whereas the newer types are virtually maintenance free. The placement of the diffuser is just as important.

The compressor is placed on the shore or enclosed protective cabinet near you power source, then pumps air into the weighted or non-weighted tubing. Then it’s connected to the diffuser assembly that sits on the ponds bottom. Air will then rush out of the aeration diffuser, and rise to the surface.

When the air is diffused it sends air into thousands of tiny bubbles scrambling to the surface at an average speed of (1 foot) per second aerating the pond for the much needed oxygen. These bubbles don’t only transfer the water from the bottom to the top, they help circulate and de-stratify the pond. A good rule of thumb is to turn your pond over every 24-48hours.

When you have higher DO levels, the aerobic bacteria can clean the pond of toxic gases like ammonia and hydrogen sulfide, especially when used in conjunction with beneficial bacteria product. The bubbles also create ripples on the surface on the pond. The ripples deflect sunlight preventing it from reaching the bottom of the pond. Without sunlight, algae will not grow on the bottom of the pond. You can go to our Aeration 101 page to learn more and see illustrations.
