PMP Question?
    #3136137 - 09/14/04 09:50 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

When using a PMP setup does the air pump run 24/7?

Can one air pump with dual air holes run 4 air stones in 2 large tubs (2 per tub)?

Thanks for any input!!!

You would be better off using the air wands or the long air stones (like, 18" or whatever fits in your tub good, perhaps diagonally to maximize size). Then one hose to each. I have had some trouble getting the flow balance to split evenly between two air wands with a single output air pump, but you should be perfect with two outputs. If you tried two per output it would be difficult to balance the flow, one would bubble more than the other unless you had an adjustable valved tee or something, and even then it sucks. And the small canlike air stones don't make much for bubbles, the curtain of bubbles is much better.

This pump will do what you want. Use wands if you can find em.

so if i attach the air pump with 2 long air stones, then i should put the long air stones under the perlite?
and also, the long air stones would be in water under the perlite? or just under the wet perlite?

thank youuu
