    It is vital to maintain a very high level of oxygen in a garden pond. The oxygen content in the pond is subject to heavy fluctuations. This is because plants and algae which produce oxygen during the day through solar energy, switch their metabolism at night and use up most of the available oxygen. This natural process depletes almost all of the oxygen supply. Therefore, the survival of the fish and other organisms is especially endangered during the early hours of the day. The oxygen depletion problem is magnified through dead algae, plants, or superfluous fish food, particularly in warm water. These microorganisms use up an enormous amount of oxygen. This reduces the oxygen level for the fish and other organisms, thereby threatening their survival. In other words, when the biological balance is destroyed, pond life could die within a few hours.

    The PONDMASTER AP-Series air pumps have been designed to satisfy the requirements of a multitude of water-related applications. The non-oil lubricated motor is designed to operate efficiently and save energy.

    These beautifully designed, environmentally friendly pumps can be used for

    • Oxygenating ponds and aquariums for a cleaner aquatic environment
    • Promoting healthier fish and aquatic plant life
    • Increasing the breakdown of fish waste
    • Preventing icing-over in outdoor ponds
    • Driving protein skimmers
