What sets Bubble Tubing® apart from other linear diffusers?

Bubble Tubing® has very high SAE (Standard Aeration Efficiency), SOTR (Standard Oxygen Transfer Rate), SOTE (Standard Oxygen Transfer Efficiency) performance ratings.  The Bubble Tubing® linear air diffuser has two opposite rows of fine holes 1.3 cm (1/2″) apart along the entire length of the tubing. Some of our clients expect that drilling holes in a polyethylene hose will give similar performance results as our Bubble Tubing®. Others think soaker hose purchased in a hardware store is a similar product, not so. Here is what we know about our Bubble Tubing®:

  • Precision manufacturing means excellent field performance year after year, backed by our 5-year warranty.
  • Aeration holes maintain their geometry after thousands of hours of performance. Cost savings due to high performance and low maintenance is impressive.
  • The Bubble Tubing® bubbles are truly micro-bubbles. The smaller the bubble diameter, the higher oxygen transfer rate. Millions of fine micro-bubbles create a larger surface area to transfer oxygen than fewer larger (coarse) bubbles. Our independent test results attest to this. Quality products going into manufacturing produces quality performance in harsh environments.
  • When it comes to aeration, bigger bubbles do not mean better results, but it can mean higher operational costs.
  • The diffuser is designed specifically to prevent clogging and fouling. Maintenance is extremely low compared to other micro-bubble technology when our parameters are followed and respected.
  • Easy annual cleaning can be done quickly with BioPurge.  We recommend this product as it will not change the chemical nature of the tubing material. The tubing stays in the water for cleaning while you save time and labour.
  • Bubble Tubing® is flexible, it holds no memory and will not kink, is easy to install and is safe for the environment (does not contain lead).
  • Made exclusively in Canada to our exact specifications, impressive 5-year warranty.
  • High oxygen transfer rate. A full evaluation of the oxygen transfer capabilities by independent firm available.
  • Applications range from farm ponds to the largest industrial projects.
  • Suitable for fresh and saltwater applications, from shallow to deep waters.
  • Inner pressure prevents clogging; tubing is low maintenance, anti-fouling.
  • No moving parts or electricity in the water.
  • Highly resistant PVC (chemicals, salinity, temperature).
  • Weighted and non-weighted formats available.
  • Tubing can be purchased with all the necessary hardware, ready to be installed.
