Does this unit come with a check valve or do you sell check valves that would work with the 3/8" weighted line
We do not have check valves available for this unit. However our EPMD1 and EPMD2 diffusers come with a built in check valve to prevent water from backing up into the airline.
It is not a bad idea to have a check valve for your aeration system, but if you have one in the diffuser that will prevent water from getting into the airline at all and would eliminate the need for also having one at the compressor.
i have .5 acre pond. about 13 ft deep. Would you recomend this stratus series pump or a gast pump. I would like to put the pump in my basement which is about 200 ft from the pond. Would it be noisy in the basement?
I would recommend this compressor because of the 2 year warranty. You can easily run up to 1000' of airline without losing a lot of pressure or air volume, so 200' is a piece of cake for this compressor. The decibel rating on this is 62 dB, I compare it to the sound of a box fan running on high, it is not very loud like a shop compressor would be, more like a fan sound than a loud clanging motor.
