Fish Room Air Systems

Good Evening Everyone

I am considering a purchase of a linear air pump Jehmco system for my fish room. I am seeking some feedback from member's who own such a system. I am considering an LPH80 or LPH100 for purchase to use in my fish room.  I am seeking an average mean time to failure, parts availability and over performance information including power consumption.

Please let me know your experiences.

Jim Langan, AKA Webmaster

I have one, can't remember exactly which model, that has been operating for at least 20 years without any problems.  The only maintenance I've experienced is occasional cleaning of the air input filter.  Mine runs approximately 60 sponge filters with plenty of spare capacity.  Go for it!

I've seen pictures of these air set ups on this AKA galleries. How many feet can you run the line that you tap into ? It's what 1 1/4 inch PVC ? Do you glue it with PVC solvent ?

In my old fish room I used a linear air pump - don't remember what brand, but it most definitely was not quiet, so I installed it in a far room. The run was about 50' of 1 1/4" pvc to the fish room and then into a manifold made from 1/2" pvc to distribute around the room (about 60 2.5 gallons, 30 30 gallons, and a mish-mash of other tanks and containers). All the pvc was glued, but the individual airline taps were all metal threaded, wrapped with teflon tape and screwed into slightly smaller drilled holes. Worked great for fifteen years.
