Matala Rocking Piston Aeration Kits come with a compressor (complete with air filters, pressure gauge, air manifold and optional cabinet), weighted airline and diffusers -- everything you need for large pond or lake aeration.
Balanced for smooth, low-vibration operation
Cylinder is hard-coated for wear resistance
Safety-protected oil-free cylinder
Permanently lubricated bearings
Head design allows for easy replacement of piston seal
Manifold with Pressure Gauge The heavy-duty air manifolds include an oil-filled pressure gauge to reduce indicator vibration, giving a more accurate reading. Attached to the air manifold is a pressure relief valve that opens at approximately 17psi, to prevent damage to the compressor. The gang valves on the manifold are high-quality brass with 3/8" barb connectors. A short section of heat-resistant hose is included to reduce heat to the air hose connection.
Optional Cabinet The locking cabinet is landscape green and is designed for outdoor extreme weather conditions. The cabinet stands on a solid support base to maintain a level installation. A cooling fan is added for cross-flow ventilation, and the cabinet includes a built-in GFI outlet. A heat protection hose leads externally to vent heat.
Matala Hakko Base Air Diffusers These membrane air diffuser assemblies that feature heavy-duty plastic bases with soft edges. These bases are hollow so that they can be filled with sand or gravel, eliminating the need for bricks and straps to get the diffuser to sink. These heavy-duty diffusers produce medium bubbles
Recommendations Install above pond water level and flood zone, within 50' of the shore. Only use in water less than 50' in depth. Use the included way manifold and hoses. You can pair the system with up to 300' of 3/8" airline, 600' of 5/8" airline or 1000' of 1" airline. Using greater lengths will reduce effectiveness.
