Small aeration systems for backyard ponds, fish ponds, goldfish ponds and koi ponds in Canada. Three sizes available: mini, small and large.
These all-inclusive aeration systems include diffusers,quiet linear air pumps with replaceable diaphragms, weighted diffusers, self-sinking tubing and all required hardware and detailed instructions. These economical small pond aerators deliver beneficial oxygen and aeration during summer or winter with the highly-efficient KoiAir Aeration Kit. Designed for ponds with fish from 1,000 gallons up to 25,000 gallons and beyond, these aeration kits bridges the gap between the amount of oxygen supplied by fountains or waterfalls and the level required to keep koi ponds healthy. Silent, energy-efficient compressor ensures reliable water circulation that eliminates dead spots and improves overall pond wellness.
The small system has a maximum diffuser depth limitation of 7' and the large aeration system has a 10' depth maximum. To prolong the life of your air pump diaphragms it is advised to place diffusers in water shallower than the maximum rated depth.

Installing Your KoiAir Aeration System
NOTE: It is recommended that the compressor be covered and not exposed directly to the elements. This can be accomplished by purchasing a faux rock cover. If you decide to use your own cover, make sure it will keep water from coming in direct contact with the compressor and that there is plenty of ventilation.
Always use parts that are supplied or approved by Airmax Ecosystems, Inc. Use of other parts may result in poor performance and could create a hazardous situation. Always unplug the system from the outlet and refer servicing to a qualified electrician if the power cord is damaged or frayed or if the compressor is producing unusual noises or odors.
Your KoiAir compressors will need a rebuild kitevery 12-36 months depending on operating depth, air quality and operating temperature. If your compressor is operating but there is no air coming out of the diffusers, you will generally find that it is time to replace your diaphragm. See the top cover of compressor for instructions on replacing the diaphragm.
Membrane Stick Maintenance
No maintenance required.
Air Filter Cleaning
Unscrew the cover on the back of the compressor and pull off the filter cover to expose the air filter. Remove the air filter and brush away any dust particles. Air filter is designed to last the lifetime of the compressor. Replacement is not needed.
Operating in freezing conditions on ice-covered water gardens will cause open water areas, even in freezing conditions. Also, the ice thickness around these open areas will be thinner than the ice over the remainder of the pond. Airmax strongly recommends that this danger of thin ice around the diffuser site be clearly posted at frequent intervals. Owner assumes all responsibility for operating KoiAir Aeration Systems during winter months.
If you choose to turn off your system for the winter, do the following:
