Large-scale air infusion can be an expensive game as the High Output Pumps required to run large numbers of air stones are expensive pieces of hardware. These Budget High Output Infusion Pumps are marginally less powerful than the Professional Air Pumps, but prove significantly cheaper and make running multiple air stones a lot less painful on the wallet! Supplied complete with a 10 Way Plastic Manifold. 1 year warranty.

How to Use

Which Air Pump Do You Need?

To work out which pump you need, here's how many of each air stone you can power from each pump:

30 Litres/minute:
6 - 20 Golf Ball
3 - 8 x 4" Ceramic Disc
3 - 6 x 6" Ceramic Disc 
3 - 6 x  Coke Can&nbsp

60 Litres/minute:
12 - 40 Golf Ball   
6 - 24 x 4" Ceramic Disc 
6 - 12 x 6" Ceramic Disc 
6 - 12x  Coke Can 

You need one piece of air line for each stone you use. If running multiple air stones from one pump, you will need a manifold.

Q & A

Questions and Answers (1)

How is the noise level of this item compared to the more expensive version, and to your budget blue air pump? Thanks.
Both the Budget Air Infusion Pumps, & the Budget High Output Air Infusion Pumps are rated at less than 40dB at 1 metre away, the Professional High Output Air Infusion Pumps are rated at 40dB & 45 dB respectively. The pumps move a large volume of air, which will make some noise in the nutrient reservoir. In our experience, budget air infusion pumps are quietest, followed by budget high output, followed by professional high output. You have to remember though that the volume of air moved by these pumps varies greatly, and the noise produced is relative to the volume of air moved. Some customers that are concerned about noise tend to use several small air pumps rather than 1 large pump.
