Using a compressor to aerate a pond?
I would like to use a compressor with some 100 lb lp tanks for reserve capacity to aerate a pond.
I desire a flow of 2.0 cfm average at little to no pressure to run thru a rubber membrane diffuser. Not sure how to calculate building the system.
I am currently running a dedicated constant flow pond pump but it runs 24/7 and if any obstruction hits the diffuser it over heats the pump. This is why I would like to use a regular oil less compressor.
Any thoughts? Am I not being realistic in my thinking?
