* The outlet on the Hk 120L is 1.0". Do not use smaller hose than 1.0" for the HK 120L. It requires this size hose in order to run cool. If you use a heavy duty 4 way manifold with the HK120L, you can use four 3/8" hose to deliver air to 4 diffusers.

In order to have a healthy, dynamic pond environment you also need a biological filter, a source of aeration, a circulation pump and adequate space, or volume.

Pond aeration is one of the most important things you do for your pond!

If you’ve ever asked the question of why exactly you have a pump pushing water over a waterfall, the answer is simply that it is keeping your fish alive. One can not have enough aeration. The Koi thrive better, bacteria in bio-filter are healthier! By increasing the "Oxygen" levels in the pond water, it will promote an overall healthier pond. One important area that higher levels of oxygen saturation help is in better promotion of good biological bacteria known as aerobic bacteria.
