You already pump water into your fish tanks. With this fitting, you can double the activity of that inlet by adding air to the water at the same time!
The Power Stream Aerator Kit adds oxygen to the water by the use of an inbuilt venturi. The movement of the water sucks air in through a small hole in the top of the fitting. The interior shape of the fitting mixes the air with the water, so you get water and bubbles coming out of the fitting! So easy!
And since the pipe or stem of the aerator sits below the water line, the bubbles go straight into the water column.
We carry two lengths of fitting - one with a 230 mm (9") pipe, and one with a 380 mm (15") pipe.
The Kit comprises the PowerStream Aerator Head plus a Thru-Tank Elbow fitting suitable for 19mm (3/4") hose.
The aerator head can be rotated 360 degrees on the thru-tank fitting, to suit your desired placement. The flow-director right on the end can also be rotated 360 degrees around the pipe, to direct water in any direction you want.
The Thru-Tank Elbow fitting comes with either a Barbed end, to attach directly to a hose (not included), or an end suitable for a Snap-on connector (not included). The Barbed fitting is attached permanently to the hose, while the snap-on fitting can easily be removed. See pictures.
This venturi aerator is a simple and easy way to add more air to your fish tank. A great addition to any aquaponics system!
Short Venturi aerator
“ I have made various different types of venturi’s prior to buying one of these kits and I would have to say, I kind of wish I just bought one earlier. It works with a multitude of pressures and is so easy to install.
Im currently using one in a 200L stand alone mineralization tank (blue drum) and it seems to be handling that process fine on its own. I will most likely still install a second one for my own OCD but other wise, great piece of kit.
Definitely recommend this kit to anyone who wants to add extra oxygen into any water tank, drum, bucket or pond.
I’m even going to say it’s slightly better and easier to use than any of the venturi’s I constructed. ”
