LINEAR AIR PUMPS
Linear septic air pumps use either diaphragms or pistons to compress air. These units are very quiet and energy efficient. They are designed for continuous duty and should run 24/7. The difference between brands of the linear air pumps is mainly has to do with quality. The Hiblow, Medo, and Thomas brand units are among the best quality available on the market today. The Cyclone, Secoh, and Alita are more economincal versions but do not have the lifespan of the aformentioned units.
ROTARY VANE AIR PUMPS
The Gast Rotary Vane septic air pumps use carbon vanes that spin in circuluar motion to compress air. They are powered by an AC electric motor. These units can be very durable but they require about 4 times the electrical operating cost of the linear air pumps to run 24/7. They also are much louder than the linear septic air pumps units.
Regenerative Blowers are capable of providing high volume of air flow at very low pressure. These types of blowers are commonly used on older Hoot system, Fast systems, and Bio-Microbics systems. Normally these units are ran on a timer and do not run continously.
SEPTIC AIR PUMP SIZE DOES MATTER
The other misconception is that the air pump just puts air in the water, so it doesn’t really matter which size is used. Nothing could be further from the truth. Air pump sizing is actually very important to the operation of your system, and not every system will use the same size air pump. If you have been our website, then you already know there are many different types and sizes. The air pump size is normally determined by the volume capacity of the tank, the style of air diffusers in the tank, and how many GPD (Gallons Per Day) the system is designed to treat.
Our sales team can make sure you get the right size pump if you are unsure about this aspect of buying a new one. In most cases we only need either the model number of the pump you are replacing, or the brand of your aerobic system and the GPD that it is rated to treat. Again, size does matter and it is very important that you get the correct air pump for your system.
