VERTEX Air 1 XL2 Aeration System

Air 1 XL2 aerates approximately 1-2 acres depending on shape, slope, oxygen demand and other factors.

Vertex’s latest technology provides the most aeration for your money. A Brookwood SafeStart compressor, housed in a rustproof aluminum outdoor cabinet, feeds bottom mounted CoActive AirStation(s) utilizing Vertex’s MicronBubble technology. The rising force of millions of bubbles circulates the entire water column, entraining bottom water up to the surface allowing vital oxygen to be absorbed and poisonous gasses expelled.

  • Vertex membrane technology has been independently tested and proven to outperform other makes and models of diffusers
  • Self-clearing flexible membrane openings prevent clogging in even the dirtiest of lakes. 
  • Vertex MicronBubble technology provides superfine bubble generation. As bubble size decreases, oxygen transfer and lifting rates increase dramatically.
  • Over 50,000 disks installed since 2006 without a single plugged up or blown out membrane!
  • Five-year warranty—all Vertex AirStation carry a “No Questions Asked” free replacement guarantee.

What is the maintenance for a Vertex Aeration System?  

It is recommended by the manufacturer that the air filter element be replaced every 3-6 months to limit dirt from reaching the compressor. The Compressor Maintenance/Rebuild Kit should be completed every 1-3 years for optimum compressor performance.
