Pond aeration is important in both the winter in summer seasons. During the summer it insures maximum gas exchange and guarantees maximum oxygen levels in the water. During the winter aeration is the most cost effective way to maintain a hole in the ice to permit toxic gases to escape. We offer several models of air pumps to aerate your water garden or koi pond:
PondAir 2 and PondAir 4

Designed as a complete aeration solution, the PondAir™ contains everything you need to introduce aeration to small water gardens and features with a quick and simple installation. High Efficiency Aeration Pump Running on as little as 4 watts, these whisper-quiet diaphragm aeration pumps are the heart and soul of our PondAir™ aeration units. Costing virtually nothing to run, you can feel good about providing constant aeration to your pond. Airflow Control Dial Dial-in aeration output with the twist of your finger. The airflow control dial enables you to restrict airflow to your pond when desired without the need for tools or stone adjustments. Simply turn the dial to restrict airflow or run the aeration pump at full output for maximum aeration. Black Vinyl Airline Flexible black vinyl airline allows for strategic air stone placement to maximize air and water circulation. PondAir™ vinyl airline has an approximate inside diameter of 1/8” and is packaged in 30’ lengths. Directional Check Valves Water tends to climb aeration airlines when your aeration pump is powered down. Airflow check valves allow oxygen to travel outwards from the aeration pump while preventing water from traveling into the lines when not in use to prevent potential water damage to your aeration unit. Air Stone Diffusers Designed to improve oxygen absorption, these 2” diameter air stones create ultra-fine air bubbles that infuse oxygen directly into the water column.
