Technical Specifications The ¼HP air pump is very quiet, consumes little energy (3 amps) and makes a maximum of 30 PSI while providing an air volume of 1.24 CFM. The compressor must be placed in a location that is sheltered from the weather and where there is good air circulation because no cabinet is sold with this system. It is important to protect the compressor from bad weather. The diffuser and the air supply hoses are heavy enough to sink to the bottom of the water without the need for ballast. The air pushed from the compressor will travel through the Torpedo feeder line to the diffuser. The diffuser will let the air escape in fine micro-bubbles of oxygen that will move up the water column. The oxygen and circulation created will help maintain the health of your pond.

  • Piccolo Air Diffuser

    Our expertise in aeration comes from our many years of experience in the field of air diffusion technologies. This small diffuser requires little pressure to operate. We are the only retailer in Canada to offer the Piccolo diffuser. Benefits The piccolo is a small diffuser requiring little pressure to operate. It can be placed at different depths depending on the need, ideal for small ponds with little depth or with various depths. Here are the advantages seen when using bottom aeration: Circulation of the entire water column in relation to the depth of the diffuser and the volume of air injected; Elimination of thermal stratification (generally prohibited in the case of natural trout lakes); Increase in dissolved oxygen levels, which stimulates the natural aerobic digestion process, thus reducing the thickness of organic silt and the accumulation of sediment; Prevents fish kills during winter by increasing the oxygen available in their habitat; Reduces mosquito populations; Eliminates foul odors from unwanted gases; Reduces organic bottom sediments by avoiding sediment anoxia; Sequestration of phosphorus in sediments; Preservation of a healthy aquatic ecosystem. Technical Specifications This small diffuser is used in our SAS, Mini-Air and CanadianAir aeration systems. It is very suitable for ponds that are rather round or tank-shaped. Diffuser Type: Ballasted diffuser base using a porous pipe as the diffusion medium.

We also strongly recommend clients purchase a compressor cabinet from us versus rigging up a home made alternative. Our cabinets are safe, well ventilated, secure, and provide noise reduction.  Contact us if you have any doubts about which model to choose! Technical Specifications Rocking Piston Compressors Twenty years ago, it was rare to see anyone using the rocking piston compressor (also called oscillating piston compressor) for aeration of ponds and lakes. Gradually they became the heart and soul of aquatic aeration systems. Rocking piston compressors operate without oil, are economical, powerful and efficient. They are divided into 2 groups: single piston and double piston compressors. The single piston is ¼HP or ⅓HP, while the double piston is ½ HP or ¾ HP. The air pressure is 25 to 50 psi or 1.72 bar to 3.45 bar. As a general rule of thumb, the more pressure the compressor develops, the less air flow is available. The air flow rate is between 2 and 8 CFM, or 0.06m³-0.23m³ per minute. The common brands are Thomas and Gast, but they can now be found on the market under different names such as: Sweetwater, Brockwood, Matala, Stratus and Tech-Aire reciprocating compressors. They all share the same principle of operation and work perfectly with many types of diffusers.These compressors are sold in Kasco Marine's Robust-Aire systems and are also used in CanadianAir Aeration systems.Piston Compressor Data Sheet (PDF) Teich-Aire owner's manual (PDF)  Warranty : 3 years Warranty is void if: The compressor is not maintained properly according to the maintenance recommendations supplied in this manual.

  • Electromagnetic Diaphragm Compressors (Secoh)

    Secoh JDK compressors are perfect for small ponds (6 ft deep max), small basins and septic tanks. Benefits Electromagnetic diaphragm compressors are often referred to as linear air pumps. Most people would recognize them as aquarium air pumps; they look like a toaster. They use an electromagnetic system that oscillates the diaphragm and creates a steady flow of air. They are simple but very durable and this is the quietest way to create air pressure. But silence brings limitations and they provide no more than 4-5 PSI pressure for larger models and most operate at a maximum of 2-3 PSI. With the right type of air diffuser, they are ideal for shallow water gardens. We have sold many diaphragm pumps over the years and the most common comment that comes up is that people are drawn to their quiet operation. However, they can sometimes be wrong about the true depth of their water basins. Picking the wrong compressor can lead to its diaphragms wearing out faster and causing it to break constantly. Trust our salespeople to provide you with the right system. CanadianPond.ca offers you a wide choice of compressors for aeration. It is possible to make energy efficient choices while avoiding compromises.  Technical Specifications Electromagnetic (linear) diaphragm compressors use an electromagnetic system that oscillates the diaphragm and creates a steady flow of air. They are simple but very durable and this is the quietest way to create air pressure.

  • Bubble Tubing®, Fine Bubble Linear Diffuser

    Exclusive to CanadianPond.ca, Bubble Tubing® is a linear air diffuser for aeration, de-icing and bubble curtains. It is designed and manufactured in Canada under our specifications. It provides a substantial and efficient transfer of oxygen to water.  Benefits Fine bubble diffusers such as our Bubble Tubing® produce many tiny air bubbles (between 1 and 3 mm). These tiny bubbles rise steadily from the depths of all manners of aquatic landscapes, from wastewater treatment basins, to waterways, canals, ponds, lakes and lagoons. These bubbles provide a substantial and efficient mass transfer of oxygen into water. This oxygen, combined with organic nutrient sources, such as sewage and sediments, allows naturally occurring bacteria to produce enzymes to help break these sources down. Available Formats (Inside Diameters) 15 mm ( ½”) : Standard kits available online to purchase. 20 mm ( ¾”) : Contact us for a quote 25 mm (1”) : Contact us for a quote  30 mm ( 1 ¼”) : Contact us for a quote  High oxygen transfer rate. A full evaluation of its oxygen transfer capabilities by an independent firm is available on demand. Applications range from farm ponds to the largest industrial projects. Suitable for fresh and saltwater applications, from shallow to deep waters. Inner pressure prevents clogging; tubing is low maintenance and anti-fouling. No moving parts or electricity in the water. Highly resistant PVC (chemicals, salinity, temperature). Weighted and non-weighted formats available. Tubing can be purchased with all the necessary hardware, ready to install. Video on Bubble Tubing® Our Bubble Tubing® Products Bubble Tubing® is sold standard cut, custom per foot, or by rolls of 500′. Contact us for prices and details.It is also a component of: CanadianAir Aeration Systems Mini-Air System Thawline Bubbler Deicers OctoAir Industrial Diffuser for aeration or deicing (embedded in the stainless steel frame) SalmoAir® Diffuser for upwelling in Aquaculture  Technical specifications Made using highly resistant and flexible PVC plastic, Bubble Tubing® keeps its shape and does not kink. When entering the tube, the compressed air creates an internal pressure. Precise perforations on both sides, going the entire length of the hose, allow this compressed air to be released in microscopic bubbles. Their size helps prevent the hose from fouling, a common problem seen in porous diffusers. Once released, the rising air forms a uniform bubble curtain that optimizes the transfer of oxygen. It also promotes water circulation throughout the water column, as it creates a rising current.  Using Bubble Tubing® reduces pressure drops and does not require any underwater electricity. Bubble Tubing® offers a superior global aeration performance compared to other aeration devices. Bubble Tubing® reduces power consumption, installation and maintenance costs substantially. When used in de-icing, the bubbles exiting the Bubble Tubing® drag the denser, heavier and warmer water from the depths to the surface. This movement of warmer water inhibits the formation of ice. Bubble Tubing® has an excellent Standard Oxygen Transfer Efficiency (SOTE) and a great Standard Aeration Efficiency (SAE). Please note that Bubble Tubing® will float in salt water.

The tests were carried out on the ½”, ¾” Bubble tubing® and the OctoAir-10 industrial diffuser. In the summer of 2017 we gave GSEE Inc. another mandate to test the Bubble Tubing® at higher airflows and deeper depths, while also carrying out testing on our 1” Bubble tubing® and OctoAir-60 industrial diffuser. “Overall, the results obtained for the CanadianPond.ca Products Ltd. aeration systems were uniformly excellent and produced some of the highest SOTE values GSEE Inc. has observed.”Gerald L.Shell GSEE Environmental Consultants, LaVergne, TN, Sept.2011   Tech Sheet (PDF)  Operations / Installation No matter the scale of operations the same basic principle applies: a compressor is connected to Bubble Tubing® through a heat hose line equipped with a check valve. We offer all the necessary products from start to finish to fully set-up a reliable and efficient aeration system for you. We can size the compressor for the application, suggest tubing layout, suggest cost effective design modifications, and offer to troubleshoot. Our experience designing aeration and de-icing systems with Bubble Tubing® is substantial, and our expertise is sought for many aeration projects. How to install Bubble Tubing (PDF)  Installation Manual (PDF) Bubble Tubbing® require a compressor, costumers may choose between piston or diaphragm compressor. (Shop compressors here.) Compressor must be installed in a cabinet. This cabinet need to allow good air circulation to avoid overheating and protect de compressor from the weather. (More about cabinets here.) If the compressor is not installed in a cabinet, it is necessary that it is protected by a ventiled shelter. Once the shelter is identified, you will need to mount the compressor on its base and secure it with screws either to the wall, floor or on a shelf. Securing the base prevents the compressor from moving while it is running. It is not recommended to use an extension cord, make sure the electrical outlet is within reach of the compressor and fan wires; 1.8 m (6 feet).  Schematic of a diffuser with Bubble Tubbing®; Before connecting the Bubble Tubing® to the feeder line, unroll it, making sure it is not twisted. Tubing well straighten allows a uniform dispersion of air through all its length. Let the tubing rest unrolled before the installation of the system.  Bubble Tubing® is also compatible with torpedo. (More about Torpedo here.) If requested in advance, the Bubble Tubing® can already be connected to the check valve (assembly cost may apply). If installed in a large pond, Bubble Tubbing® installation can be done with a boat. Compressor must be started, unroll the pre-assembled hose to the shore and put the rest of the roll in the boat. While keeping the Torpedo feeder line in hands, go on the water and uncoil the Torpedo line until you reach the desired location for the Bubble Tubbing® diffuser. With the diffuser already connected to the Torpedo air feeder line, slowly continue lowering into the water the diffuser as it self-sinks to the bottom. With the compressor turned on, you should see bubbles and be able to use them as visual reference to make sure the tubing is diffusing through its length. If installed in a smaller pond, it is also very possible to install the system without a boat. (It is even recommended.) Start the compressor right before installing the diffuser in the water, the bubble will guide you to settle the diffuser at the desired place in the water. TUse a long rope (twice the length of the pond) and a small cord (1 to 2 feet long). Form a loop at the end of the diffuser using the small cord (loop shown in the images below). Pass the long rope through this loop, and while holding both ends of the long rope, use it to pull the diffuser into place in the water. The diffuser will sink into place at the bottom of the water. A second person should be hanging on the feeder line to help with the placement of the diffuser. Once in line with the wanted position, release one end of the long rope and pull on the other end to retrieve your rope.    Do not underestimate positionning of the Bubble Tubing®, air is lazy, it will find the quickest way to go up. Place the Bubble Tubing® at the same depth keeping it as level as possible (maximum 1 foot drop). The tubing can be placed in a circle, curve, or straight line to follow a continuous bathymetric line (level curve at the bottom of the pond). Note that even if the Bubble Tubing® does not bubble evenly, you will still ensure a “vertical” water circulation in your pond. We recommend the use of a "depth finder" tool if you do not know the level curve at the bottom of the pond. If you install your unit into a body of water that is extremely stratified, use caution as you start it up. Suggested startup time for the unit for a stratified lake might be initially running for 1 hour per day during daylight hours for the first week and gradually increase operation by increment of 1 hour until running continuously. Sunny days are preferable to cloudy days because photosynthesis provides oxygen while the water circulates and mixes. For more information on the soft start procedure, click here.   Applications Our Bubble Tubing® has been used for over a decade in a wide array of applications by various industries, governments, and private clients. Manufacturing and processing plants, mining, port authorities, aquaculture, agriculture, waterways and canals, parks and recreation, engineering, landscaping and reclamation firms, marine construction, universities and research facilities, ponds and lakes, are all markets currently using Bubble Tubing®.
