When To Use Aeration:
The Airmax Shallow Water Aeration Systems can be used in ponds 6 feet in depth or less where standard bottom diffuser aeration systems become less effective and economical. Ideal for shallow water bodies like retention ponds, Airmax Shallow Water Aeration Systems will provide continuous circulation and aeration which combats problems with algae, weeds, odors and muck accumulation.
How To Use Aeration:
Airmax Shallow Water Aeration Systems can be installed at the edge of your pond or at a 115 volt power source several hundred feet away. The SilentAir Standard Cabinet protects the aeration pump components from the elements and does not need to be placed indoors. The Airmax ProAir-2 diffuser plates can be connected to the SilentAir Standard Cabinet using the included EasySet Weighted Airline* and fitting sets. The ProAir-2 diffuser plates should be placed near the deepest areas of your pond and distributed equally to promote adequate aeration throughout the entire water body. Airmax Aeration Systems are designed to run 24/7 year-round**. Be sure to follow the included installation instructions when running your Airmax Pond Logic Shallow Water Aeration System for the first time.
**When running your aeration system for the first time be sure to follow the start-up instruction in your user manual to prevent pond turn-overs and fish kills. If you use your pond for recreation in the winter you should turn off and store your aeration system as it creates thin ice and potential fall-through hazards.
