Air Pumps

R140 - R335
INFORMATION

Description

Air pumps are used in conjunction with Air Stones and Silicone Tubing to aerate nutrient solutions in reservoirs to keep them from going anaerobic. Additionally, they are used in deep water culture hydroponic systems to oxygenate roots which in turn increases nutrient uptake. Without necessary aeration in a deep water culture hydroponic system, plants will drown due to the fact that they need oxygen in the root zone to survive.

The Dophin air pump is an affordable yet effective solution to those seeking aeration in either their reservoirs or deep water culture system. Air-pumps include a high and a low switch which regulates the airflow accordingly. In addition to this, the sleek design includes feet that absorb vibrations and as a result, reduce the sound whilst in use. We also have a more efficient Regent air pump with a fully adjustable flow rate for those looking for a more premium air pump.
