When To Use Aeration
Airmax® Shallow Water Series™ Aeration Systems can be used in ponds 8 feet in depth or less where standard bottom diffuser aeration systems become less effective and economical. Ideal for shallow water bodies like retention ponds, the Shallow Water Series™ will provide continuous circulation and aeration which combats problems with algae, weeds, odors and muck accumulation. By aerating your pond from the bottom up, you'll circulate incredible amounts of water, drastically increasing the dissolved oxygen levels in your water column. In turn, this allows for increased levels of beneficial bacteria to accumulate in your pond.
How To Use Aeration
Airmax® Shallow Water Series™ Aeration Systems can be installed at the edge of your pond or at a 115 volt power source up to 1,000 feet away utilizing Airmax® Direct Burial Airline*. The Airmax® Composite Cabinet protects the aeration compressor components from the elements and does not need to be placed indoors. The ProAir™2 Weighted Diffuser can be connected to the SilentAir™ LR Series Compressor using EasySet™ Weighted Airline* and fitting sets. The ProAir™2 Weighted Diffuser should be placed near the deepest areas of your pond and distributed equally to promote adequate aeration throughout the entire water body. Airmax® Aeration Shallow Water Series™ are designed to run 24/7 year-round**. Be sure to follow the included installation instructions when running your Airmax® Shallow Water Series™ Aeration Systems for the first time.
*Airmax® Direct Burial Airline is not included but 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 instructions 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.

"Happy I added aeration"Don of Charlotte, NC
My pond is an odd shaped and shallow. I added the SW40 system and I couldn't be happier. The water clarity has improved and the overall look of my pond is healthy.View entire review
