    Great price and product!
    My .75 acre pond, which is 35 or more years old has needed aeration for several years. The water gets pretty nasty during the hot and still summer days. After researching different DIY and kit systems I decided on this one after talking to customer service. I got everything I needed to run 100 feet from the pump to the water's edge then 100 feet out to the middle of the pond for less than $700. Had my trench already dug so when I got my kit it took less than an hour to connect the tubing and drop the diffuser into the middle of the pond. I ran a nylon cord from the diffuser to the surface and tied it to a couple of duck decoys. It really moves lots of water. I noticed right a way the septic like odor from the bubbles as it boiled up the stagnant water from the bottom. I'm really excited about the prospect of a cleaner pond without using chemicals, etc. I know the fish are going to appreciate it!

    Outstanding Pond Pump
    I have about a 1/8 of an acre pond and this pump puts out an incredible amount of air bubbles. I highly recommend getting an all-weather timmer and run the pump at night from like 10pm-7am. Photosynthesis offered during the plant through sun and plants in the pond es produces plenty of oxygen for the fish. This does not happen at night when they need the oxygen the most. Make sure to place the air pump in a ventilated container. I'm thinking I going to need to get a fan as well, as I have noticed the motor does get hot. I have mine in an old toolbox under an outdoor shelf that is sheltered from the rain. It does make a fair amount of noise, but it's not too loud that it bothers you. It has a 5-year warranty on the unit. You can't go wrong with this purchase. Its a must have if your planning on having fish and beautiful water clarity. I just got this a week ago, so I haven't noticed water clarity yet. I'm told it takes so months to see that result. Feel free to message me with questions you may have.

    Our Pond is Clean!
    For the first time in years, our pond is clear of algae! We have had massive fish die-off twice in three years. We had the water tested for chemical run-off from the surrounding fields, but the tests were negative. We did, however have a LOT of algae and it was determined that our fish died from oxygen deprivation. We finally took the expert's advice and installed an Aerator (we chose the AirPro Pond Aerator) and the algae was completely gone within a week! We now have happy, healthy fish! And a beautiful pond.

    AirPro is GREAT!!!
    I got a great deal on my pond aeration system! It was so easy to install and has done wonders for my pond! It turned my horribly 1 acre anaerobic pond to an aerated pond in just 2 days! We also added 4 gallons of Aqua Blue pond dye with bacteria and it is now a great pond!!! Unfortunately, so did a 4 1/2 foot alligator think it was a great place. We had to catch the critter and return him to the salt marsh he came from. My fish are so happy now and so are my beautiful frogs! This was really a great kit for my pond!

    Great Unit for WWTP Emergency
    We are in the middle of upgrading our WWTP. We are down to one "Bio-reactor" as opposed to two. In our one operating Ditch we had one of two rotors fail and had to get air into the ditch as soon as possible. These two units have done the job. We are going to place both of them in our new EQ basin as soon as we go operational with our upgrades. This will help with limiting the odors produced in the basin and help with "bug" growth prior to introduction to the main process.

    from Grand Junction, Co asked:
    October 1, 2018
    HI, I have about a 1/4 acre pond that is about 8 feet deep. A. Is this the correct size pump for my pond? B. My pond is an unusual shape (see diagram) with a 20' wide x 30' long x 5-6'deep area. I am assuming i need a 2nd diffuser to ensure good circulation? Or not? C. There is about 150 feet from where the pump will sit to the deepest area of the second part of the pond. Do the 2 diffusers connect together (to make a single run) or do will there be 2 separate lines coming off the pump? D. How much line do I need to order?
    1 Answer
    A. Yes B. For a pond with an odd shape like that I would recommend a 2nd diffuser. C. No you can not connect them together each diffuser will have to have separate air lines. D. It is hard to tell since I don't know the distance of that first run but from looking at your diagram I would say anywhere from 200' to 250' that will cover both runs and if you need to connect 2 pieces of tubing together we can provide you with couplings and hose clamps.

    If I wanted to add another line in the future, I would need to buy another weighted hose and manifold correct? If so, what would that cost be? Also, if our energy cost is $ .16 per kWh what would it cost to run 24/7?
    1 Answer
    Yes you would need a valve manifold and more weighted tubing may be needed depending on how far each run will be. You can actually get the additional manifold + diffuser plus more tubing right from the product listing page above. Just look at the options right above the Add to Cart Button. Also there are add on accessories right below the add to cart button as well. If you scroll down far enough you will see the tubing. On average it costs about $0.50 per day to run this unit.

    October 9, 2017
    My pond is approximately 2/3 of an acre and 6' at the deepest parts, I have a horrible build up of sludge at the bottom and algae on the surface. I will start to use the "good" bacteria in the spring when the weather will support the correct water temperature for multiple applications. Will this aerator work for my pond? Other than needing additional air line are there are any other parts I would need to order or is this a complete solution? Thanks in Advance, Karen
    1 Answer
    See our sizing chart. At 2/3 of an acre with only a max depth of 6' this unit will be a little undersized. I would recommend a 2 diffuser system with a larger compressor. Have a look here:

    from Alma, Michigan asked:
    October 2, 2017
    We live in Michigan, so we are wondering if running this in the winter will affect the ice formation? Also, is this something you should run all the time?
    1 Answer
    It acts as a decier in the winter time leaving a large hole in the ice over the diffuser. In extremely hard freezes the hole might freeze or get a thin layer of ice, but as soon as the temperatures go up again the hole will return. It is good thing to have winter aeration, not a lot of people realize this but toxic gases trapped under the ice could potentially cause a winter fish kill and having the hole in the ice would help that escape.

    Can I run one airline from your compressor installed in my pole barn approx. 500' and split to 2 diffusers at the pond.
    1 Answer
    Yes if you want to do an install like this give us a call and we can get you fixed up with the proper fittings and parts. Here is how it would work: 1. You would go from the compressor to your airline and we would recommend on a 500' run with this system using 1/2" or 3/4" airline. We could provide for you all the fittings that you will need. 2. Then you will go from the airline to a valve manifold because you are using 2 diffusers. You will need the valve system in place to control and regulate the airflow to each diffuser. You can bury the valve manifold near the waters edge inside one of our valve boxes. 3. Connect your weighted airlines to the valve manifold and go out into the pond and of course that airline is connected to your diffusers. *A lot of our customers use rigid PVC pipe schedule 40, the same kind used in plumbing applications for their long run to the pond. Alternatively you could use flexible poly or vinyl tubing.

    Greetings, My pond is 500' from my house ,there is no electric at the pond. The pond is 1/2 acre, diffuser will be in 7 ' to 8' of water. Would this system work if the pump is at the house and I run a 1" line to the pond? Thank You Willis Brandi
    1 Answer
    Yes you can definitely do that. In fact you could run up to 1000' of airline before you would have any significant volume and pressure loss. A 1" line should work fine you could probably go as small as 3/4" but I would not go less than that on a 500' run.

    from Allegan Michigan asked:
    April 26, 2017
    My pond is 700 feet from barn where I have power. Can I trench in larger tubing and put pump in barn?
    1 Answer
    Yes you can run up to 1000' feet of airline with no problem, for this unit. It has plenty of PSI to make the run. You probably will want to consider a larger diameter tubing than the 3/8" that comes with this system. In fact I would recommend 1/2" Weighted tubing for a 700' run. Here is a link below: The 1/2" tubing could get you to 800'. If you were to run a longer airline than that I would recommend 5/8" tubing for runs 800' to 1000'. See link for that below:

    How noisy is the pump? Also, can I add 50 feet of additional tubing (if so is there an adapter that connects the tubes?
    1 Answer
    The pump is not very noisy think of hearing a box fan turned on high. If you cover the compressor with one of our cabinets that can be muffled even further. In fact if you are really concerned about the sound I recommend getting our deluxe kit and selecting the sound proofing upgrade. Here is a link to that system: The decibel rating for the compressor without the cabinet is 62 dB

    from New Paltz, NY asked:
    April 18, 2017
    1) Should the compressor to be installed on a pedestal? How high? 2) I am planning to not run it in a winter as I don't see the reason to run it all year around. My pond gets frozen in a winter, but fish survives under the ice cover. Depth of the pond varies from 6 to 9 ft. Will the compressor, its parts and its motor winding survive NY winter temperature while not running, but being covered? Thank you.
    1 Answer
    1) No that is not necessary unless the area near your pond is prone to flash flooding. A pedestal is not necessary but you will definitely want to find some type of enclosure to protect it from the elements. 2) Yes it should survive the winter no problem. However, you may want to bring inside of a shed or garage for the winter if you are not going to use it. You can attach a rope to the diffuser base and connect it with a duck decoy or milk jug and pull up the diffuser that way in the winter. The quality of the motor is more than good enough to survive but if it is not running in the winter for the sake of the maximum longevity why not just store it for those months if it is not in use. That is my thoughts. Now if you have it inside of a well insulated shed you could leave the airline and diffuser connected inside the pond and that should not be a problem, I would primarily be concerned about the bitter cold on the motor, not running all winter. Just on a side note it is good to keep these running during the winter even in climates where the pond freezes because it can leave a nice hole in the ice and allow toxic gases to escape, preventing potential winter fish kills.

    The pond I have a question about is owned by us and our neighbor. It's 600 ft. in length by 100 ft. wide and has a sloping bottom, it goes from ankle deep to around 5 ft., from side to side. Would it benefit my half to aerate it if they don't do there half. Also what size unit be required and how many difusers? Al
    1 Answer
    I would recommend a surface aerator for anything 5 foot deep or less. The diffuser systems work great but they need at least 6 foot of depth to really do their thing properly. In your case I would recommend a surface aerator. Surface aerators are easy to size you will need 1 HP per acre. By my calculations you have 60,000 square feet which is almost 1.5 acres. Therefore you will need at least 1.5 HP for a surface aerator. Since they do not make a 1.5 HP you have 2 options get (1) 2 HP unit or (1) 1.5 HP and (1) 0.5 HP. Here is a link to our surface aerator page: To answer your other question it may benefit you some to aerate just your side, but ideally you would want to aerate the entire pond for best results.

    How easy is it to move the Air ports around to other areas in the same pond? To help with water movement in different locations?
    1 Answer
    It would actually be quite easy to do this. I would recommend tying a rope around the base of the diffuser and at the other end you can tie a duck decoy or milk jug, just so long as it is something that floats and something you can see on the surface and grab from a boat. Just be sure that you tie a rope and do not try to pull the diffuser up by the airline as this can break the barb fitting and you can potentially lose the diffuser.

    November 12, 2016
    I have a fountain that I need a filltration system. Is this unite ok for that.
    1 Answer
    It depends what you mean by filtration system. One of the key things that diffused aeration will provide for you is to reduce the excess nutrients in the pond and also help reduce sludge on the bottom. Both of these benefits will help keep your pond cleaner and looking great, with no bad smells and will help reduce algae, weeds and will keep your pond from getting too green. So in that sense yes, you will have a lot less bad stuff in the pond including excess nutrients, sludge, algae, weeds etc... However it does not filter the pond per se like a traditional pond filter would do on a garden pond or koi pond.
