Re: Franks pond 2018

Hey Frank, In absolute perfect conditions you could get up to 20.000 litres an hour with one Airlift running at 12W. So that would mean 65000 / 20000 = 3,25 3,25 x 12W would give a theoretical maximum efficiency of 39W for that output, however, you can't run 3,25 Airlifts of course, so this is very ...

Re: Airlift outlet depth

I thought I sent Marc a PM about this, he usually knows. But It seems like something went wrong on my end. I sent him another PM. I'm not 100% sure what the best course of action is here, hopefully he can give some insights.

Re: How do you post images?

Hi, there seems to be a problem with this function. I will ask our webmaster again, it works fine for me but other users seem to have problems. I just tried it again. If you have your image hosted somewhere, just take the BBCode and paste it here, it should work. Alternatively, go to 'Gallery' next ...

Away for a couple more days

Hi,

Since there is some forum activity I am posting this anyway. I am (and have been) in Canada for 9 days. I really don't have time to reply to topics right now. I will be back on tuesday the 28th.

Apologies for the inconvenience!
Have a good day,

Roy

Re: Airlift outlet depth

Hello,

That's an interesting setup, thank you for the drawing.
I believe it will work, I can't say anything about the efficiency though.
I will ask Marc to have a look at your design.

Re: airlift in swimming pond

I tried increasing the file size limit, but it does not seem to work. I've asked the webmaster, hopefully he can fix this. I will reply as soon as this issue has been resolved. Apologies for the inconvenience, very odd indeed.

Re: airlift in swimming pond

Figured it out, you can use the gallery function, next to your username in the top right of the site. Here you can create an album, upload images and simply share them with the BBCode for example.

When I paste this: '[image]54996-[/image]', it embeds:

Re: airlift in swimming pond

Hello Werner and welcome, Looks like I missed your post, apologies. Your plan looks good. I agree with most of your points. Seeing the sketch would help a great deal. I host my images on Flickr, then share the BBCode link here (without image tags) and it will work: https://live.staticflickr.com/1822...

Re: Collector outlet hole size for heat forming

Hey BWkoi, Apologies for my late reply. It's good that you found that data. I was going to look at the Collector building video, Marc says you need to drill a 75mm hole for the 110mm transit here (10m55s): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6Lywn8fAgc&t=10m50s 73mm should also be fine. It's not that p...

Re: Venturi

Hi,

It could perhaps be done but your flow rate will suffer enormously. I don't know if that would be a good trade-off to make.
Do you really think an Airlift as it is would not provide sufficient aeration?

Re: New pond powered with airlift

It appears that the vast majority of the pond construction I see has filtration based on several baffles, sieves and the drum (drums are great). There seems to be a large construction component here as well as cost. Has anyone looked into bubble bead filtration? I am planning on using a system like...

Re: Introduction to the Crielsieve, a revolutionary pre-filt

Hi Rich, apologies for my late reply. I'll reply to specific parts of your post to avoid confusion. Hello, The filters I am talking about are specifically from AST Filters. They are bubble bead filters, meaning they run using air to backwash the media and discharge sludge. Some models discharge slud...
