Weighted 1/2" I.D. perforated tubing requires only 1 CFM per 100 feet (0.01 CFM per foot). Single runs of up to 200' can be used with even bubble flow. Flexible poly tubing has a lead-wire encapsulated in a separate poly bead to act as a weighted keel, keeping the deicer tubing firmly on the bottom.
Requires from 0.01 to 0.1 CFM per foot and a suggested pressure of between 2 and 6 PSI.
Lay the weighted bubbler tubing at the outer extremity of your boathouse, crib or dock and you will leave a lovely open area free of ice preventing the pressure damage from ice against pilings and other structural dock damages.
This is a semi-rigid poly tubing so avoid bending the tubing around corners too abrubtly as the tubing can kink which will restric airflow.
Although the bubbler hose tubing has slits that close when air pressure is stopped and any water that accumulates in the bubbler tubing will be blown out of the holes upon the re-starting the compressor it is recommended to use a check valve between the air supply line and the bubbler hose.
