Hydro Logic Products® AirLift 5™ pond and lake aeration systems are designed and built to cost effectively mix and aerate ponds and lakes. Our systems use billions of micron sized bubbles to improve pond and lake water quality. Our AirLift 5™ aeration system can aerate ponds and lakes up to 10-acres in size depending on air diffuser placement, nutrient concentrations, biological oxygen demand (BOD), water depth and other physical characteristics of the waterbody.

Our AirLift 5™ aeration system is powered by two 1/3 H.P. energy efficient, dual piston air compressors equipped with our proprietary SureStart™ and AirSaver Timer™ technologies. Our dual piston air compressors, which can deliver air under high pressures (water depths up to 35 feet), operate very quietly (55 decibels at 2 meters or 6 feet). In comparison, the noise levels of our air compressors are about 15 decibels less than equivalent rotary vane air compressors.

Our AirLift 5™ aeration system contains five AirPod™ air diffusers. Each AirPod™ contains a self-cleaning 24-inch tube, EPDM flexible membrane air diffuser equipped with a triple check valve system. Our air diffusers are constructed to withstand total airflow from the compressors without damaging the EPDM membranes (unlike EPDM disc air diffusers). The base of the AirPod™ provides a large surface area between the EPDM membrane and the sediments, thereby preventing sediment disturbance during system operation. The AirPods™ are extremely easy to install. Simply fill the two ballast tubes with pea gravel or sand prior to their placement in the pond or lake.

Compressed air from our dual piston compressors is delivered to the AirPods™ using our DownUnder™ self-weighted tubing. DownUnder™ air supply tubing is constructed of a flexible PVC composite and is kink proof and puncture resistant. Our easy to install tubing comes in several different lengths and diameters to meet your installation needs.

Lake and Pond Compressor

Our dual piston air compressors are outfitted with our proprietary SureStart™ technology. This allows automatic restart of the air compressors under full pressure during any power outage (blackouts or brownouts) without damaging the air compressor motors. Our AirSaver Timer™ allows the air compressors to be turned on/off at different time intervals (adjustable up to 10-hours). This provides the pond or lake owner with another option to further reduce the annual operating costs if so desired. All air compressors are oil-less, thermally protected and require no lubrication. The air compressors include rotors/stators manufactured with the most advanced magnetic materials, sealed heavy-duty precision bearings and starting capacitors. The only required routine maintenance is periodically changing the 5-micron air filters. Compressors can typically operate approximately 3 years or more before any decline in performance is observed. This is 2 to 3 times better performance over standard piston, diaphragm and rotary vane compressors. Thereafter, the air compressors can be easily serviced by replacing the piston seals. Airflow versus pressure performance curves for our dual piston compressors vary less than for diaphragm and rotary vane compressors. This simply means that means that dual piston compressors provide more air while using less energy. Lastly, our dual piston air compressors can operate under high pressures, thereby allowing the air diffuser membranes to be easily cleaned without pulling the AirPods from the pond or lake.

Lake and Pond Aeration Cabinet

The commercial-grade cabinet is constructed of 14-gauge steel with forest green electro-statically bonded powder coating. The cabinet is manufactured with a stamped ventilation intake grill and low resistance exhaust plenum (duct work). The cabinet comes equipped with sealed ball bearing cooling fan to maximize air compressor life and Class “A” GFCI Protection on all circuits. All cabinet components are easily disassembled using standard household tools. The cabinet includes a 5-year warranty against rust and corrosion and a 2-year warranty on all components mounted inside of the cabinet.

AirPod™ Air Diffusers
Five AirPods each equipped with single flexible, fine pore EPDM rubber membrane tube diffuser
More durable than air stone, porous media & EPDM disc diffusers
Produces extremely fine air bubbles (500 – 1,000 micron or 0.020 - 0.040 inch)
Triple check valve prevents water & sediment from entering the air supply lines
One EPDM tube diffuser is 20% larger than two 9-inch EPDM disc diffusers
Self-cleaning & very low maintenance
Large HDPE base (24”L x 18”W) to prevent sediment disturbance
Five-year warranty (best in the industry)
Air Diffuser

Each AirPod™ air diffuser contains a self-cleaning 24-inch, EPDM flexible membrane tube diffuser equipped with a triple check valve system. The triple check valve prevents water and sediment from flowing back into the air supply lines during system shut down. The EPDM tube air diffuser is mounted to heavy-duty PVC strut with ratcheting tie-downs to provide easy assembly/disassembly. The above components are secured to a large HDPE base. Two hollow ballast tubes are anchored beneath the base. The ballasts tubes are designed so that pea gravel or sand can be easily added to these tubes during installation.

* DownUnder™ air supply tubing is also available in 3/8 inch I.D. (0.375 in.) for smaller pond and lake applications
1/2" Self-weighted Tubing 3/8" Self-weighted Tubing

DownUnder™ air supply tubing is constructed of a flexible PVC composite and is self-weighted in order to firmly remain along the pond or lake bottom after the installation. Sections of DownUnder™ tubing are connected together using standard PVC solvent weld cement and ½ inch insert fittings. DownUnder™ air supply tubing has low friction walls (0.625 inch I.D.) for maximizing airflow rates and minimizing air pressure drops. Our DownUnder™ tubing is designed to reduce the overall system pressure requirements and to extend the life of the air compressors. The wall thickness of 0.225 inches provides long-term durability and protection against kinking and punctures. The air supply tubing remains flexible in cold temperatures allowing for easy year-round installations.
