When To Use Aeration

The Airmax® Deep Water Aeration Systems are ideal for deeper water bodies. Airmax® Deep Water Aeration Systems will provide continuous circulation and aeration which combats problems with algae, weeds, odors and muck accumulation.

How To Use Aeration

Airmax® Deep Water Aeration Systems can be installed at the edge of your pond or at a 115 volt* power source several hundred feet away utilizing Airmax® Direct Burial Airline** (not included). The SilentAir™ Standard Cabinet protects the aeration pump components from the elements and does not need to be placed indoors. The Airmax® ProAir™-4 diffuser plates can be connected to the SilentAir™ Standard Cabinet using the included EasySet™ Weighted Airline** and fitting sets. The ProAir™-4 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® Deep Water Aeration System for the first time.

*Airmax® Aeration Deep Water Systems are also available for 220 voltage power sources. Please call for additional information 866-766-3435
**Airmax® Direct Burial Airline should be used when trenching airline underground while Airmax® EasySet™ Weighted Airline is intended for underwater use.
***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.

System Components

SilentAir™ Standard Composite Cabinet
An attractive composite cabinet houses and protects the SilentAir™ Compressor from outdoor elements. The integrated cooling system utilizes a UL-listed high-flow cooling fan and high-density air intake pre-filter to distribute air evenly throughout the cabinet keeping the interior components clean, cool and dry. An elevated base protects the aeration hardware and electrical components from flooding and rainwater accumulation while the removable top ensures quick and easy access for inspection and maintenance. Every SilentAir™ Standard Composite Cabinet in our AM Deep Water series comes complete with a pre-wired one-gang duplex electrical box and 6 foot power cord to provide power to the enclosed cooling fan and aeration compressor.

SilentAir™ Series Aeration Compressor
The heart and soul of each AM Aeration System, our powerful whisper-quiet SilentAir™ rocking piston compressors push oxygen through your pond while remaining energy efficient – costing as little as $7 a month in electricity running 24/7. Each SilentAir™ aeration compressor is fitted with an integrated air regulator to provide easy airflow-management and is mounted on vibration reducing rubber feet to ensure quiet operation.

ProAir™-4Diffuser Plates
Designed for maximum oxygen uptake, the ProAir™-4 Diffuser Plate incorporates high-efficiency low-maintenance membrane sticks to release tiny oxygen bubbles into the water column. Membrane diffusers posses the synergy of air stones without the headaches of cracking and acid-washing. A new non-stick Teflon coating prevents debris accumulation and performance reduction. A self-weighted base keeps the diffusers submerged at the pond bottom for optimal circulation. Combined with a 4-way air manifold and one-way check valve the ProAir™ diffuser plates truly provide maximum output with virtually no maintenance.

EasySet™ Airline
Designed to stay submerged underwater and out of sight, EasySet™ 3/8" self-weighted airline is guaranteed not to float. A thick wall and lead-free construction make EasySet™ airline the perfect pond-safe choice. Resistant to rips and tears, EasySet™ airline is resilient against fishing hooks and foot traffic from swimmers, pets and wildlife.
