To either round out one of our Deep Lake or Shallow Lake Aeration Systems or to expand one of our DA1AW or DA2AW systems, you will need tubing and fittings to make that happen.
Stainless Steel Hose Clamps (1/2" and 3/4")
You can find clamps for less, but then they must be replaced when the screw rusts away. These quality clamps are all stainless steel including the screw! The one-piece housing is locked to the band without spot welds. The band is 9/16" wide and the screw has both a slotted head and a 5/16" hex. Choose clamps with a larger maximum diameter than the outside diameter (O.D.) of the tubing that it will be holding. Made in USA.
Couplings (Insert x Insert)
Use these insert fittings for repairing, adapting or connecting black poly tubing. Connections under stress or pressure will require hose clamps.
Heavy Set Weighted Air Tubing
Our Heavy Set tubing remains on the bottom when filled with air. The dark blue color makes it easy to hide. It is designed for lake and pond aeration, making installations fast, clean and neat! The 5/8" WD1 tubing I.D. is .625", O.D. is 1.125" is compatible with 5/8" "nominal" insert fittings and P200 "shore side" tubing. Requires SSB clamps.
Use the smaller 3/8" WD2 Heavy Set tubing for smaller volumes of air, shorter distance or with higher pressure compressors where line loss is not important. The I.D. is .385" and is compatible with insert fittings. O.D. is .675" Requires SSA clamps
Heavy-Duty Polyethylene Tubing
This heavy-duty, high-density polyethylene tubing is kink-resistant and so durable that it is warranted for twenty years yet is quite inexpensive. Specify this tubing for lake aeration systems, water piping and FAT CAT aeration systems where kink resistance is required.
Factory Pressurized-your assurance that it is leak free.
Flexible piping is installed much faster than rigid pipe and comes in long lengths requiring fewer fittings. Each coil of this unique tubing has sealed ends and is factory pressurized at 10 psi. When a sealed end is cut off, pressurized air will blow out, indicating no leaks.
Contains 2% carbon black for long-term UV protection. Uses insert fittings with hose clamps.
