Airmax PondSeries Pond Aerator Review

Today we'll be reviewing the Airmax PondSeries Pond Aerator. As you know, having a pond or body of water on your property can be a very nice experience. They’re beautiful, they’re functional and this is something that not many people are able to say they have.

If you have a pond on your property, you know that a bit of maintenance is needed in order to keep everything looking nice. Now let's get into our Airmax PondSeries pond aerator review and see what makes them so popular with pond enthusiasts.

Benefits of an Airmax PondSeries Pond Aerator

Aeration of your pond can increase the amount of oxygen that’s in the water. It also helps to circulate the oxygenated water throughout the rest of the area. If you were to skip this maintenance item, you could be faced with a pond that has stagnant and messy water that attracts mosquitoes and other unwanted bugs.

Investing in an Airmax PondSeries aeration system can provide you with a method of aerating your pond, up to eight surface acres (depending on the model you choose) and can also help your pond look healthier overall.

There are a number of components included in this Airmax aerators system that contribute to how the overall aeration system functions.

Keep in mind, there may be other parts that you’ll need to invest in for your first time setting everything up. Please note that some units are available with or without the airline or diffusers.

The ProAir 4 Weighted Diffuser

One or more diffusers (depending on model) provide the aeration and are essentially maintenance-free, so you can easily use this product whenever you want without having to worry about frequent service to it.

A check valve is included in the design of the Airmax PondSeries that prevents back pressure from occurring within the compressor. The diffuser has a weighted design that helps keep it submerged.

The SilentAir RP Series Compressor

The compressor is high efficiency and is designed to reduce noise and vibrations while your aerator is working. There is also an air filter included in the design to help maximize the life of the compressor by preventing a buildup of particles.

SmartStart Technology has been developed by Airmax to protect the compressor during the process of a pressurized restart. Quick disconnects, a pressure gauge and relief valve all make for a smooth performance process.

The Airmax ETL Composite Cabinet

An enhanced cooling setup in the cabinet of the Airmax PondSeries aerator provides an even flow of air through the unit by way of a high flow cooling fan. There are also filters that will help keep debris from the air that is passing through the unit.

The elevated base is designed to protect your aerator from high levels of water, and a pre-wired electrical box provides you with an easy setup.

How to Install an Airmax Aeration System

Installation of the Airmax PondSeries aerator compressor should be close to your power source. You should have a nearby power source of either 115V or 230V depending on what system you purchased and what electric you have (either 115V or 230V).

You can run your aerator through the entire year. Keep in mind, an aerator won’t be overly functional if you have a lot of frozen water in the winter months. There are instructions included in the package that you receive, should you decide to order.
