Air Compressor -- What you will mostly find in the market are 4 types of lake air compressors. Rock and piston, rotary vane, linear piston, and diaphragm. The first 2 are generally high power, more CCF, and penetrate deeper into your water, and therefore usually are used in larger ponds or lakes. The latter 2 you will generally find in smaller applications such as back yard fish ponds.

Types of common air compressors:

Rock and Piston Air Compressor -- Rotary Vane Compressor --
Linear Piston Compressor --Diaphragm Compressor --

Compressor Cabinet and Cooling Fan -- Air compressors must be covered from the elements at all times if you want to ensure longevity of the unit. Since the compressor works on air and thus needs to keep the integrity of the seals, one sure way of compromising that is by allowing your machine to weather. Another reason to place your air compressor in a protective cabinet is because they do make noise and enclosing them greatly reduces the noise they produce. Because compressors generate a lot of heat it is important to keep them cool and the air within their enclosures fresh and circulation. Make sure that if you do get a cabinet enclosure, that they are equip with a cooling fan. Cabinets come in many forms. You can even get them to look like a boulder in order to blend them with the surroundings.

Air Splitters -- Every system should have a manifold splitter. It is best to distribute your aeration capabilities throughout your pond, so that the health of your water is even. Since ponds and lakes are almost never the exact same depth, and also in most cases have very irregular shapes, it is important to make sure that the air exchange is getting to those points. Air splitters allow for you to place multiple air diffusers as your pond or lake needs and properly adjust the rates of airflow to those points.

Air Hose -- Simply put, it is the delivery system of your pond aeration. We carry 2 kinds of air tubing. Poly and self weighted. As the name suggest one needs help sinking with the use of weights and the other will sink once you place it in the water. They both perform the same way it delivers your air. We also actually carry a third air hose. These are finely perforated so that the air running through the hose is diffused on the hose itself. It is a combination of air hose and diffusers and commonly is referred to as bubble tubing

Air Diffusers -- This takes your large air bubbles and breaks them up into small micron size air bubbles. The idea behind this is that it will take longer for the air bubbles to reach the surface of the water and thus with it carry more of the harmful gasses in the process. There are several kinds of diffusers to choose and the most popular ones used are air stones or epdm rubber membrane diffusers. Air stone diffusers will erode and eventually need replacement. EPDM membrane diffusers on the other hand are far more durable.
