The Hailea ACO-2204 is a budget twin output air pump for pumping air
through two airlines and into submerged airstones or for driving
aquafarm/waterfarms. Air is taken in on the underside of the unit and an
oscillating diaphragm pushes the air through the two output nozzles on
the front of the unit. The air-pressure produced is good for the size of
the unit and is very steady. Decent construction and special rubber feet
on the unit reduce noise to a low level and power consumption is also
very low at only 4 watts.
Place your air pump close to your reservoir on a flat, firm surface
which is above the water level of the reservoir that you wish to aerate.
Connect your air lines onto the output nozzles, sliding them over the
ridges until they are held on firmly. If it is difficult to push the
air-lines on, softening the end of the air-lines in warm water may make
the job a lot easier. Fit your chosen airstones onto the other end of
the air-lines and place them into the reservoir. It is best to try to
keep the air-lines as short as possible because the air pressure will be
reduced the longer it is. Plug the air pump into a mains outlet socket
and switch it on. The air pump will now pull air in from the underside
of the unit and push it out through the nozzles, down the air line and
out through the airstone.
Always place your air pump at a height above the level of the water-line
in the reservoir. If your air pumps are at a height lower than the
water-line and there is an unexpected power-cut or trip-out, water can
siphon back from the reservoir into the air pump which will almost
certainly cause it damage. We recommend the use of check-valves (one-way
or non-return valve) in the air-line as well to make doubly sure that
back-siphoning cannot occur.
Ideal for single or multi pot hydroponics systems or small tanks
