Re: Natural swimming pool

Welcome Lido, I understand your idea, I'm familiar with swimming ponds as we call them. I'm not sure I really understand your system though. Could you share some drawings if you have them? About your questions; An Airlift should dissolve roughly the same amount of oxygen in the water as the pump tha...

Re: PVC pipe size availability

Apologies for my late response, I have asked Marc and this is what he told me. A bigger pressure chamber is not a problem at all, as I expected. The difference between 110 or 100mm will be minimal indeed. How minimal, we don't know exactly. 100mm could perform a bit better in a situation where there...

Re: PVC pipe size availability

In theory higher air pressure should give a higher flow. However, specifications from manufacturers usually do not take Airlift use into account. You need good pressure at depth at a low level of power consumption. I can only be sure about the performance of the pumps that already have been tested. ...

Re: PVC pipe size availability

Hi, In your case I would use 100mm. The difference in performance shouldn't be that large. A 125mm Airlift would require a stronger pomp so I would not do that in this case. The larger pressure chamber should not be a problem. I can't guarantee the same results as we have gotten, but I'm pretty sure...

Small update

Hey guys, A small update from me on how things are going. We talked about ideas for testing on the site, the original plan was that we would do a lot of new tests and make a new video on the Crielsieve this year. Sadly, Marc could not find the time in the spring or in August/September, which was whe...

Re: Airlift powered pond with a Drum filter, by Koi.Gin

Part four The small funnel has been replaced by this small collector, to achieve this a 63mm transit was made in a 160mm tube. Via a 50mm pipe the pond can overflow into the sewer. On the left, a 32mm transit has been made which is sealed with a cap. This will be used to drop the water level in the...

Re: Airlift powered pond with a Drum filter, by Koi.Gin

Part three We will continue with some more info about the Airlifts being used in this pond: - The pond will have four Airlifts in total. - One pressure chamber Airlift will be used to run the two skimmers. This Airlift will run on one 20w air pump, each skimmer should take about 6000 liters an hour...

Re: Airlift design help please

Hello Sean, As we discussed via PM, this is the drawing Marc has made to roughly show his idea: https://www.airlift.eu/phpBB/gallery/image.php?album_id=424&image_id=54993&view=no_count The idea is to use two plates (preferably a type of plastic), roughly 150 x 100cm in size. These should have 110mm ...

Photobucket no longer supported

Hello everyone, It has come to my attention that Photobucket has suddenly changed its policy. Many of the images I use on this site are hosted there, but now they charge every user $399 a year just to embed images on sites other than Photobucket.com. This means that all of the images already hosted ...
