Aqua-Jet Air Diffuser HI-BLO Aerator
Aqua-Jet Air diffuser Aeration Range has been developed to be the most versatile and robust aerators on the market. Proper Aeration is the most important part of a successful and healthy pond. Due to the robust materials used in the design of the Aqua-Jet range, the aerators do not dissolve/break up like more conventional air stones
All aerators in the Aqua-Jet range come supplied with heavy feet, not only do the weighted feet keep the aerator firmly in place when situated. The feet also help keep the aerator raised off the bottom of the pond. This helps in several ways, first of which it keeps the aerator out of any sediment that might be at the bottom of your pond. This will prevent the aerator from blocking. It will also offer 360 degrees of air movement and utilize the full benefits of the perforated hose
The Aqua-Jet Air Diffuser HI-BLO Aerator has been specially developed for situations where a high concentration of aeration is needed, ether this be for fluidized beds in your filter system or out in the pond.
This compact aerator has over 4.6 meters of tightly coiled perforated airline. The aerator is just 290mm dia. making it perfect for fitting into single filter bays.
With the popularity of the Aqua-Jet Triple Ring Aerator, We discussed with the manufactures bringing a more compact aerator to the market. even though the Triple Ring is a fanatic aerator when it comes to trying to fluidize a moving bed of media we just felt that an aerator with a closer concentration of air would be so much more efficient at really agitating the filter media. And this aerator does exactly that. For using any aerator with a fluidized bed it is important to use a powerful air pump (depending on the size of the filter bed)
Recommended Air pump Size: 40-60LPM (for normal aeration situations)
Aerator Size: Dia-290mm
Supplied with 10 meters of clear flexible P.V.C airline 6mmID

The clear airline is supplied with all of our aerators apposed to the green in the product images, this was just for the benefit of the photo
These can be used alone, or in groups, therefore offering the scope of being placed anywhere on the pond floor, these weighted air diffuser rings offer superb performance
Why You Need Aeration
Aeration is very important, the deeper your pond is, the less air there is at the bottom. A layer of air-depleted space can form, this is from organic waste, rotting vegetation, fish food, and fish waste this uses a large amount of oxygen to degrade and is the reason for bad smells coming from your pond. This is more so in summer with increased feeding.
The amount of oxygen held in the water is determined by temperature, less oxygen is available in warmer water. This can become critical in the summer months with the increased demand from aquatic life and plant growth but fish can become stressed or even die without sufficient aeration being provided.
There are three ways of putting air back into your pond, Aerating Plants, surface Aeration, and Bottom Aerators. Aerating plants are a great addition to a pond but release oxygen during the day but consume oxygen at night. Surface Aerators include Waterfalls and Fountains or the return pipe from your filter system, but these only put air into the surface of your pond. Bottom Aerators put air in from the very bottom eliminating the oxygen-poor zone and stagnant water, reducing dead spots in the pond for debris to settle by keeping the water moving, as the bubbles rise they enrich the whole pond, and only when the surface tension is broken can harmful gases be vented, so the finer the bubbles the more oxygen is put into the pond.
The enriched oxygen levels also help the beneficial bacteria to break down waste therefore an aerator placed in your Biological filter chamber is a good idea.
Additional Parts/Products in the Aqua-Jet Range
Replacement perforated hose for each product in the aqua-jet range is also available. This ensures your product will last a lifetime.
Aqua-Jet Air Line Weighted Feet
Aqua-Jet Air line weighted feet have been purposely designed for securing/weighting down any form of airline.
The weighted feet can be used in conjunction with airlines up to 20mm Dia making them extremely versatile. The Aqua-Jet weighted feet are also suitable for full submersion in water
To use this product simply tighten the plastic strap down around the airline, once tightened around the airline the weighted feet will be securely attached to the airline.
This product is ideal for hiding the airline around your pond. Making it easy to neaten up where the airline sits at the bottom of your pond.
This kit will be supplied with 5 Aqua-Jet weighted feet
