- In some situations it is easier to locate a compressor near an existing power supply that is far away from the pond and extend the tubing rather than run power down to the pond's edge.
- Typically a single, larger diameter, poly tubing will carry all the air from the compressor down to the edge of the pond where the valve assembly will be located. This prevents having to run multiple smaller lines between compressor and shore.
- These assemblies are simply an "adder" to the kit cost. A single line set up coming off the compressor is included along with a modified valve assembly for installation by the pond.
Great experience, great product so far. I have been using it for a week now. EJ helped me pick the right set up for my pond, thanks for the help.
I never got this item but I did get the aerator is being shipped
If you need to locate your pump close to a power source that is not near the water then you need this. It allows you to run a single air line from the pump to this valve and then your diffusers will be hooked to this valve. My particular application was running a 120 foot of 3/4 inch pex pipe from the pump at my power source to this valve and then using the supplied 3/8 weighted line in the kit to supply air from the valve to the diffusers. Call EJ and he will walk you through everything!
Good product, worked as it should with my system, good price point! Would buy again!
