Re: Suggestions for testing

Hey Tom, Thank you for your kind words. I agree, Airlifts have enormous potential. It's just a shame that it is a lot to take in when you first read up on them. And sadly they are not as easily implemented as a pond pump that you can pretty much just chuck into a pond and have it working. I think yo...

Re: New pond powered with airlift

Hey guys! Hey Bartol, sorry for my late reply. I don't have much time today and your questions are quite complicated. I think I have to get back to them a second time and perhaps ask Marc about some details as well. For now I will answer what I can. Finally my project continues. I need help with th...

Re: Where to get Secoh SLL 20?

This is a common problem, the Secoh SLL-20 is no longer produced sadly. They have a new line called Secoh JDK. These have yet to be tested by us, but I have read the experiences of some users on the Belgian forum that state these pumps are supposedly more energy efficient, but have less power. If I ...

Re: Small update

I have been VERY busy so updates to the site are happening now instead of in January, my apologies! I will try my best to make sure everything is up this month. I'm on the site pretty much every day to check on any messages so those will always get a reply. Greetings!

Re: Airlift powered pond build by Smetjen

Part 4 Another update. The plastering at this point had been changing colour as it should as the weather had been good all weekend. Things were looking good and the weekend that had been planned to do the polyestering looked to be reachable (the underlayers need to dry first). A couple of days late...

Re: Introduction of BjornD

Hello Dave, I think Bjorn is not active on the forum anymore. He is mostly active on the Dutch/Belgian forum. I will ask him if he can reply to your questions.

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...
