Weighted tubing carries air between the compressor and the diffuser. Made to work in all weather, even the cold, self-sinking hose will provide many years of service. Due to its weight, it will not float and requires no added weights during installation. Installation is easy and quick, compared to non-weighted tubing which requires added weights to keep it down.

FAQ

My compressor gets really hot. Will that be a problem? + -

Most installations will benefit from using a manifold such as the EasyPro ERP1V or a short section of heater hose to dissipate heat between the compressor and the self-sinking hose connection. 2-3 feet of heater hose is generally sufficient.

Will this work in salt water? How about a retention pond or wastewater lagoon? + -

Yes. MixAirTech Sinking Hose is suitable for any aquatic environment including freshwater, salt water, wastewater or retention ponds

What diameter hose should I purchase? + -

Larger tubing creates less friction & reduces back pressure.

Smaller diameter tubing works well for short, shallow runs; however as the length and/or number of diffusers increases, you will want to increase the diameter of the hose.

Does MixAir Sinking hose kink? + -

No. MixAir Sinking hose does not kink. It remains flexible in a wide range of temperatures and is designed to be maintenance-free while greatly reducing installation time.

Does MixAir Sinking Hose contain any metals? + -

No. All MixAir Sinking Hose is safe and metal free. It is specifically designed for & safe to use in ponds.

Can I use standard poly air tubing for some of the install? + -

Yes. Some installers will use less expensive tubing on shore and/or in the ground, and then switch to weighted tubing when they reach the water.

You can connect the different types of tubing with an appropriately-sized hose barb fitting and set of clamps from your local hardware store.

Can I bury MixAir sinking hose? + -

Yes. MixAir sinking hose is durable & it is a relatively common practice to bury hose between the compressor/manifold & diffusers.

Will the hose freeze up in the winter? + -

The hose itself will function fine in freezing temperatures, however if there is condensation or standing water in the line that can be problematic.

How deep should I bury the hose? + -

We recommend burying it below the frost line in your area - this prevents problems if standing water & condensation should form in the line during freezing temperatures.

What do you mean by UV Resistant? + -

The material was specifically designed to withstand harsh conditions subject to pond and lake aeration.

The material is UV resistant to help withstand UV rays and ensure product will maintain its performance characteristics.

Good product : works as advertised

300ft roll was received in 3 days. Was packaged on a sturdy roll which made unrolling very easy. Hose seems to be good quality: very flexible, but does not kink/twist. Installed in a one-acre pond. Before buying this hose, I shopped around and this product was the least expensive and I was pleasantly surprised by the quality: Nice thick wall rubber tubing. Will buy again for my other pond.

For my solar air system

Dug my pond last year and it's filled up now so bought this for the solar aerator. It's good hose that doesn't kink.

Best Pond Sinking Hose!

I went through many supposed 'sinking' hoses only to toss them or return them (wouldn't sink without weight on top of them). Happened upon this one (from Walmart) and I felt like I hit the lottery! Hose is high quality, sinks like a rock and stays put. I use it in my pond to go from air pump to diffuser. Only hose I will purchase from now on. Bonus is Great Lakes Bio prices are reasonable and ships quickly!
