This improved water circulation helps remove suspended particles and debris from the bottom of your pond, resulting in reduced maintenance. No digging or making a hole in the centre of your pond liner is necessary.
Just place the weighted suction dome directly onto the lowest part of your pond. A weighted suction dome works in the same great way a sump drain does by pulling debris and solids directly from the bottom of your pond straight into your filter system. The weighted suction dome range are all easy to clean and service.
They are all fitted with a base plate, set to the correct height to give maximum draw across the bottom of the pond. Therefore, even if the bottom of your pond is not completely level, there is no need to be concerned about restriction of flow. What Comes With Your Weighted Suction Dome Kit? Your weighted suction dome is supplied with a fitting bag that will have all the necessary parts to either work with a gravity or pump fed system, including attachments for fitting to rigid pipe of 56mm/2 or 43mm/1.5.
The fitting bag also includes two different sized hose tails that will accommodate flexi hose sizes of 20mm (3/4), 25mm (1), 30mm, 32mm (1.25), 40mm, 43mm (1.5) and 50mm. 56mm/2 Blank End Cap and Pipe Spigot.56mm/2- 43mm/1.5 Reducing Bush. 10 meters of 6mm ID/9mm OD Airline. What is a Pump Fed Filter System? A pump fed filter system pumps water from your pond to your filter system in situations such as if your filters are located higher than your pond. What is a Gravity Fed System?
A gravity fed system uses the force of gravity to drain the water out your pond and into your filter system without the need of an additional water pump. Please note: this will only work if your filter system is situated lower than your pond. Does the Weighted Suction Dome require an Additional Sized Pump? The weighted suction dome does not require any additional sized pump. The product will work with whatever size pump you feel is sufficient for your system.For use with a pump, the hose tails supplied have been designed to fit seven standard diameter hoses. Check the size of the hose you are going to use and then cut the hose tail to the correct size that is needed and de-burr the cut for maximum flow. 43mm hose tail (Small): 20mm (3/4), 25mm (1), 32mm (1.25), 38mm(1.5). 50mm hose tail (Large): 32mm (1.25), 40mm, 50mm. Why Use an Aerated Version? The aerated versions really do have it all.
The same great suction properties as the weighted dome but with the added benefit of aeration. The movement of water makes it 30% more efficient at removing debris and solids.It does this by a process called uplift. Increased oxygen levels are beneficial to aquatic and plant life and the removal of harmful gases. The weighted suction dome Aqua-Jet Air diffuser incorporates an aerated hose that coils over 5.4m in length. The Aerated hose is coiled in such a way to give maximum surface area and optimise aeration. Installing to an Air Pump.
We recommend the use of an air pump between 60-80 LMP for sufficient performance. Simply connect the airline that is attached to the weighted suction dome to your air pump. For ease of assembly place the tip of the airline in warm water for a few seconds and push onto the chosen fitting. The Aqua-Jet weighted suction dome is a re-designed version of the rubber membrane model.An advantage the Aqua-Jet has over the rubber membrane is the ability to change the aerated hose. This ensures the product lasts a lifetime. No other aerator on the market has this option, making this product last a lifetime.
