    Default Bubble gen



    Does anyone on here own one of these bits of kit?

    Seen these at the hydro shop and was just wondering if anyone has used one?

    They airate the water with a water pump and draw the air from the surface through a little device, looks like an awesome bit of kit if I’m honest, and a lot quieter than a noisy air pump.
    And what’s more they move the water about which is a plus because mine just seems to sit there when it’s not feeding.

    I've bought one of these. I'm going to set it up later on tonight probably. Read lots of good things about them and seen them used in lots of diary's

    Looking at it do you think I could modify it so all the water isn’t coming out of the same place by attaching pipes to the v?

    Yeah exactly. I picked up my MJ1000 for £8 so I'll probably get another small pump to run consistently for bubblegen

    So far so good. No noise and plenty of bubbles (way more than my four golf ball air stones) so I'm very happy with them. Running mine without the air filter for better draw. Just need to see if they pass the clog test.

    Get the 1500 pump and make sure that you really secure the pipes or you may find that the pressure pushes it off and you get an interesting water feature spouting up.
