Medo LA-28B Air Pump

  • Life expectancy of 6 years can be seen with proper installation and maintenance of the pump
  • Quiet operation allows the pump to run without disturbing anyone while you relax pond side
  • Designed to self-adjust should the pressure exceed the rated value of the pump, the piston stroke will automatically shorten to reduce the strain on the pump
  • Environmentally conscious design allows the pump to operate with lower energy consumption as it requires only 50-60% of the line current typically used by diaphragm pumps
  • UL-listed for outdoor use

Medo Air Pumps

Several key points to consider when selecting an appropriate aerator for your koi pond are shown below.

PRESSURE

The water depth at which the air is released into the pond will determine the primary operating back pressure of the pump. For every 1 foot of water depth, 0.43psi of resistance is encountered. The following chart provides the operating back pressure for the water depths indicated.

WATER VOLUME

The overall water volume of the pond is a key factor in choosing an aerator. A rough estimate is that every 1000 gallons of water will need 40 liters of air per minute to sustain the appropriate dissolved oxygen level for koi. This is a general guideline. The number of koi and amount of vegetation in the pond also need to be take into consideration. Please consult your koi provider for a more comprehensive oxygen requirement evaluation for your koi.

For rated pressures and airflows, please refer to the LA series data sheets for particular model information. It should be noted that a pump's maximum air flow and maximum operating pressure cannot be achieved simultaneously. As the pressure on the pump increases, the air flow will diminish. In turn, if the pressure on the pump decreases, its air flow will increase. This is true with all linear pumps.

Always install your pond aerator above the water level of the pond. This will prevent water from being siphoned back into the pump when it is turned off. It will protect you from the danger of water and electricity coming in contact with each other.

I use a medo la28 to bubble my koitoilet aerated bottom drain and it works great at 4 feet deep. I run it in the spring, summer and fall but the koi really seem to like it in the summer when it is hot. Also there was no noticeable change in my electric bill! (Posted on 1/8/2015)
