How this Air Pump Kit Works:
Hailea air pumps are high-quality, adjustable output pumps for moving air through air line tubing and into submerged air stones. Air is taken in on the underside of the unit and an oscillating diaphragm pushes the air through the output nozzles on the front of the unit. The air flow can easily be adjusted using a control knob on the top of the unit. Hailea pumps produce amazing pressure levels for their size, and the entering air passes through a multi-level muffler to keep noise to a minimum. The special rubber feet on the unit are designed to absorb a considerable amount of the vibration. Very little noise is produced at all, particularly when set to the minimum setting. Power consumption is also very low.
Using this Air Pump Kit:
Connect the L-shaped piece of rubber tubing to the air outlet point. Fit the manifold into the rubber tubing and secure it in place using the two provided clips. Connect lengths of air line tubing to each manifold outlet and insert the barbs of your air stone into the other end of each length of air line.
Insert your check valves into each air line by making a cut in the pipe. The black end should be joined to the air line tubing coming from the air pump and the clear end should be fitted to the air line that moves on out towards the air stone. This will prevent back any water siphoning back towards the pump, should the unit be accidentally switched off, or in the event of a power failure. Even so, it's still best practice to position your air pump in a raised area, using a stand or shelf, etc., so that it sits above the waterline of the pump’s destination reservoirs or system.
Never immerse the pump in water!
