Application

Place the air pump outside the aquarium, away from areas where it may get splashed. Attach a length of standard airline to the outlet, and run this into the aquarium. Attach the airline to a TetraTec AS air stone, or to an air-powered ornament. It is important to install a TetraTec CV4 check-valve in the airline to prevent water being drawn into the pump. Use the flow-control valve that comes with each APS pump to control the amount of air produced. Always read the instructions carefully before use.

Now if the power fails, your aquarium won't! The Battery Air Pump is a powerful, inexpensive backup aeration system that offers peace of mind in the event of an emergency. Provides vital oxygen to aquarium inhabitants and features an On/Off switch to maintain battery life. Includes a 60cm airline and airstone. Requires two D-cell batteries (not included). Also great to use when transporting fish.

Tip when having a power outage
When the filters are not running due to a power outage, it is wise to place your airstones at the top of the aquarium. Under normal conditions, any organic material that is stirred up by airstones placed on the bottom is properly filtered. Placing your airstones at the top of your aquarium during a power outage ensure toxic organic wastes on the bottom are not stirred up and mixed within the aquarium.
