NEW 4' ( 16" Diameter ) RING Tube Diffuser tubing with ""T"" fitting1/2"x1/2"x3/8" and 2 gear clamps or zip ties.
Tube measure 4' long when straight.
5/8" O.D. x 1/2" I.D. NOTE* - This tube is VERY thin walled to almost eliminate any back pressure that may occur.
If you are looking for a more Durable Diffuser that is super thick it can be found in our store align="center" style="font-size: 14pt;">This tubing looks similar to soaker hose, but - This is not soaker hose - this tube is made specifically for Aeration ( air pressure to create thousands of bubbles ) and not for water ( similar to a water pressure bubble drip line ). Although it may look similar it is not the same thing.
We have lots of other diffuser choices but they are considerably more expensive. This is the least expensive option to get diffused aeration in a body of water.
This is not self sinking or weighted tubing - you will need to weigh it down for it to sink. If attached to self sink tube or PVC it normally will stay below the water but can still float - in which case you will need to weight it down.
Give your small to large pond great aeration with this tube diffuser.
This tubing is made for this application and perfect when combined with our aeration supplies in our store - which we have for sale also - check out our store for aeration kits, compressor and aeration parts, pieces and any and all accessories you might need!
We are your one stop for anycompressor or aeration supplies!!
We ship 5 days a week - we are a business - most items ship same day or day after excluding holidays and weekends.
This item includes free shipping - we do not leave response until it is left for us - please leave positive 5 star response and should you have any issues prior to leaving response please give us the opportunity to correct it.
Thanks for looking!
Subsurface aerators are a great solution for many of our customers, especially since Deep Aire subsurface aerators do not require electricity to be in a pond.We broke down all you need to know about one of our best pond aerators to help your pond stay clean and healthy.
Subsurface aerators, or diffused aeration systems, are designed as an alternative source of aeration, taking oxygen to a pond’s lowest depth along the bottom. Diffused air systems utilize an air compressor, located on the shore, that delivers oxygen through a hose to a special diffuser lying on the pond bottom.
A submersible aerator or large pond aerator like this one keeps the pond or lake clean and healthy without a large spray pattern. A Deep Air subsurface aeration system is perfect if you’re looking for something that requires no above surface water spray, surface obstructions, or installations that prohibit the use of electricity in the water.
- Ponds on golf courses
- Ponds in public places
- Any body of water that needs to regulate water aeration
- Anyone wanting an aerator but not a big spray pattern
- Body of water installations that prohibit the use of electricity in the water
- Recreational bodies of water like lakes or swimming areas.
- No electricity required at the water’s edge. Your compressor needs electricity, but the compressor can be located wherever you desire.
- No floating object on the water surface enabling you to go boating or fishing
- Lower maintenance and service costs due to no moving parts in the water
- Safer swimming. These systems do not require electricity to be in the pond.
- Eliminates thermal stratification, making it ideal for deep-water applications
- One compressor aerates one long, narrow pond, or two small ponds
- Improves water quality and clarity
- Low operating cost.
HOW IT WORKS
These Units are a subsurface aeration system with a piston type air compressor, air hose, and an air diffuser. Designed to improve oxygen levels and destratification in deep bodies of water.
The shore mounted rocking piston compressor produces compressed air through a air tube to a membrane diffuser located on the bottom of the pond. The compressed air is released into the water through the membrane diffuser releasing thousands of fine bubbles, which rise to the surface. As the bubbles of air rise, oxygen is transferred into the water. Simultaneously, as the bubbles rise, water is pulled upward, creating a flow of water from the bottom of the pond to the surface.
THINGS TO CONSIDER
When selecting a subsurface aeration system, consider the shape, surface area, and depth of the pond. The amount of surface area the diffused system will effectively cover is dependent on the depth of the shape of the pond. The area of coverage increases the deeper the diffuser is located in the water.
The shape of a pond also affects the number of diffusers needed. An irregular shaped pond, (i.e. kidney-shaped), rectangular, or one with an island or peninsula, will require multiple diffusers to adequately disperse the oxygen.
