Pictures below is the state of the art compressor cabinet which comes standard with the AM10 thru the AM70. Shown is a AM60 double rocking piston compressor operating two deep water diffusers. The one picture with the black foam (bottom right picture) on the right is a pre-filter to keep out bugs and floating debris out of the cabinet. Check this monthly to ensure proper air flow to keep the compressor cool. The compressor itself has its own filter to prevent damaging the compressor, replace this filter yearly for optimum performance.

Why buy an Airmax Aeration System?
Simply, AIR is their name and MAX equals the most amount of air usage with their systems. From the compressors made to Airmax specs to matching the tubing and most efficient diffusers to date. Along with the state of the art compressor cabinet to protect from rain and snow, protect the compressor and keep it cool even keeping the bugs out of the cabinet.
There are many types of systems out there without cabinets, metal cabinets, and inexpensive plastic cabinets even imitation rock covers. Quick note on the rock cover’s, they can be used for the small Koi Air and Pond Air systems to hide the units. Just be sure there is a vent to allow air flow. As you can see in the pictures above the Airmax Eco cabinet is attractive and the quietest cabinet on the market.
Even the diffusers are designed and tested to insure the most amount of air flow possible. It is not just adding bubbles to the water like some, but the size and amount of bubbles are critical to insure maximum water movement and being able to move water from the floor of the pond to bring in good bacteria (aerobic bacteria) to digest debris and muck on the bottom.

Airmax@ Aeration System Success Story: For over 10 years Longshore Lake in Naples Florida, a high-end retirement community, had
seen the 100-acre lake that encompasses the entire property fall into poor condition due to increased nutrient loading. Much of the nutrient increase and organic build up was a direct result of run off from lush green landscapes that flows right to the water’s edge, ultimately increasing the algae blooms throughout the whole lake.
After years of treating the pond with copper sulfate, the Longshore Lake HOA began looking for
a different approach to finding and maintaining clear, healthy water in their lake. After reviewing
four different designs and bids from manufacturers across the U.S . they settled on the Airmax Aeration System, in part due to its quiet operation, easy maintenance, solid reputation, and overall value.
Using 8 compressors attached to 48 diffusers strategically placed throughout the lake, they
began to see results almost immediately. “It has been almost a year now and the lake’s clarity
has increased dramatically” said lake manager Bobby V, “and according to the residents, the
fishing has never been better. allowing for the first Home Owner’s fishing tournament in Long-
shore Lake’s history. Airmax® saved our lake”.
This is just one of many success stories for ,Airmax Aeration systems. Whether it’s a small 100
gallon pond or a 100 acre Lake. Airmax has the aeration systems to help you meet the water
quality goals your pond or lake needs.
