Easypro Membrane Diffusers: Membrane air diffusers aerate a pond or water feature to keep the water clean, odor-free and to reduce ice. They have a hollow base enabling you to fill it with sand or gravel to make it sink to the bottom, which eliminates the need for bricks and straps. Easypro membrane air diffusers come with either single, dual or quad membranes that give airflow up to 12 CFM. The kit comes with all necessary outlets and adapters to set up the air diffusers and provide efficient, easy to install aeration all year round.
Air Diffuser Manifolds: Air diffuser manifolds enable you to attach several air diffusers to one air line, to increase the aeration in a pond. The manifolds have an underlay made from polyethylene to prevent erosion from sediment in the mud. Air diffuser manifolds can even be custom-built for a variety of needs and requirements. The membranes will last for many years and provide even bubble distribution across all air diffusers. Standard air line connection is ½” poly tubing and air diffusers are 6” long.
Tubular Diffuser: Tubular air diffusers are an alternative to membrane air diffusers; they are 24 inches long and have over 8000 bubble slots to ensure maximum aeration. The tubular air diffusers are also weighted to allow them to sink without needing to add weights. They have a built-in check valve and will provide years of service with very little maintenance. The tubular pond air diffuser will provide even air distribution throughout, keeping the lake clean and free from algae, also helping to reduce the amount of ice that develops over winter.
Rubber Air Membrane Diffusers: Rubber air membrane diffusers are strong and durable, perfect for pond aeration. They are easy to clean and provide better circulation and movement of the water than air stones. They are excellent for ponds and water gardens as the size of bubbles increases circulation to keep the water moving. The membranes come in many sizes from 4” to 24”
Alumina Air Diffuser Airstones: Alumina airstones produce smaller bubbles than other air diffusers, increasing the oxygen diffusion throughout the pond or tank. They are also three times stronger than white silica airstones and they are even self-weighting so there is no need for added weights to keep them down. They are cleanable, but they do require chlorine or muriatic acid, so they can require more maintenance than membrane air diffusers, but with extra durability and a great selection of sizes, combined with the extra small bubbles, they are a good choice.
What are the benefits of aerating your pond?
If you install air stones so that there will be enough oxygen in the water, organic waste will decompose quicker. As a result, the muck won't build-up at the bottom of the lake. Apart from being unsightly, the organic waste can also promote the growth of algae and weeds. If you install an air stone in the lake, you will ensure that the water is properly aerated and the oxygen levels drop below a certain level. It means algae and weeds won't have easy access to nutrients.
Fish and other underwater organisms need oxygen to breathe. It is a minuscule amount, but if it drops below 3 ppm (particles per million), the fish will start having problems breathing. If that's the case, you could install some pond air stones to create a healthier ecosystem for the fish. This, in turn, can lead to an increase in the number of fish living in the lake.
If you install air stone in the pond, you might notice that there are fewer mosquitoes flying in your garden. That's because the moving water will discourage them from laying the eggs in the lake. Additionally, if you keep oxygen in the pond at proper levels, you will create better living conditions for the underwater organisms, and many of them will feed on the mosquito larvae. Because of that, the population of mosquitoes flying next to your pond will drastically decrease thanks to air stones for ponds, and you'll be able to relax in your own garden.
