Hello, I have the same Active Aqua Air Pump. And I was wondering, does it matter how high or low you keep the Air Control?
You can set the air pump to the desired amount of air flow you want going through your tank. As the tank size increases your amount of air flow should increase as well.
What diameter hose do I need for the 2 outlet 7.8l/min unit use? Thanks
3/16" inside diameter hose.
For a 1 outlet Active Aqua Airpump, what size hose does it require? What diameter small airstone should I use?
All these air pumps use 1/4" airline. It depends on the size of your reservoir for which air stone to use. For this air pump I would use either 6" air stone, Small Round Air stone or Micro-Pore Single. The more expensive air stones have smaller more even bubbles and last longer.
Is the 2 outlet 7.8 L/min sufficient enough to oxygenate a 40 gallon res. with a double micro-pore air diffuser? If not which air pump would you suggest?
Yes, that would be sufficient, provided the air stones gave enough coverage.
Would this stay on 24 hours a day in a deep water culture set up.
Yes, these pumps can run 24 hours a day.
The Active Aqua line of air pumps are an economical solution for your aeration needs.
