Air Diffusers By : BubbleMac

In the past people have asked me about what air stones I used. Well the answer has changed since the Aquatic Eco Systems Sweetwater Air Diffusers are NOT the same anymore!
However, the Originals are still being manufactured (just not under the old trademarked name) and are
Now available here!

I will be adding the different size air stones to my product listings so check back often.

Glass Bonded Silica Medium Pore Air Diffusers

Glass Bonded Silica Medium Pore Air Diffusers

Simply put these are the highest quality air diffusers on the market today !!!!

Made of 100% glass bonded silica each item is hand tooled in BubbleMac’s Central Florida shop.

BubbleMac diffusers are time tested and proven, considered the “industry standard” for 35 years.

The round grain pore structure, low resistance and uniform porosity make BubbleMac diffusers an excellent choice for aquaculture, Aquaponic, Hydroponic, wastewater and lake aeration applications.

Durable, low maintenance and manufacturer guaranteed for 2 years. BubbleMac brand air diffusers produce a uniform bubble and with an air resistance of less then 0.25 psi are compatible with most low pressure blowers. In most soft water applications, you won’t need to clean this diffuser for more than a year.

The BubbleMac air diffuser is not an imitation or copy.

Proudly Made in the USA

Body : 2000°F Glass-Bonded

Fitting : Linear Polyethylene

Maximum Pore Size : 1-3 mm

Nominal Particle Retention : 50 microns

Unlimited service life at pH below 8.0

Flexural Strength: 2500 PSI

BEWARE OF IMITATIONS……. BubbleMac diffusers are the original 2000° F glass-bonded silica diffusers introduced in 1978 by Bob Heideman, founder of Aquatic Eco-Systems. The “other guys” may try to copy our sizes, descriptions and even our photos, but it takes more than flattering imitation to compete with “the best.” Look for the name and the two-year warranty. Made in the USA.

Sweetwater Air Diffuser – “REPLACEMENTS” — by Bubblemac Aeration Products

Please take a moment to review a recent letter from the President of Bubblemac Industries, Inc.

As some of you folks are aware, Bubblemac Industries, Inc. has been the “sole” {and silent} manufacturer of the high-quality “Sweetwater” glass-bonded silica air diffuser line, since January, 2000. Our Central Florida machine shop has also produced the well-known Bio-Weave air diffuser hoses, since the design development in 1995. Each of these trademarked product lines have been distributed exclusively by our Apopka, Florida neighbor; Aquatic Eco-Systems {now Pentair Aquatic Eco-Systems}, for the same number of years.

As is sometimes the case when the “giants” get involved in industry, more emphasis is put on profits and the bottom line. The drive for these huge organizations is to increase profits by using more imported parts and pieces in place of quality American Made parts. While many of these massive corporations, with interests in virtually every country on the globe, do reach their profit goals through this practice; too many times it is the consumer who ultimately pays the price by dealing with defective or inadequate systems that fail to meet the expectations for the application.

Effective June 1, 2015; after 15+ years; Bubblemac Industries, Inc. is no longer producing the “Sweetwater” air diffuser line for Pentair AES.

Our longtime, largest distributor has opted for an alternative product, rumored to be a molded style air stone with a “plug” on one end. As we understand it from several longtime Pentair AES customers who have contacted us; these “new” products are being sold to unknowing buyers with no prior indication there is a difference.

The Bubblemac Aeration Products design of the 100% Glass-Bonded Silica Air Diffuser “IS” and “ALWAYS HAS BEEN” the original design introduced by Bob Heideman, founder of AES, in the late 70’s. Our high-quality air diffusers are machined from a solid block of silica, with hand crafting in each and every air stone. Well known and recognized worldwide for many years as the standard of the industry for aeration.

Being of strong faith and moral conviction, the hard working and experienced employees at Bubblemac firmly believe that, “with every door that is closed; another will be opened.”

We will continue to manufacture the highest quality silica air diffusers on the market. We will continue to provide these products “on-time” to our customers and at a fair price. We assure that our service and order follow-up will far exceed that of our; now competitor, Pentair AES, in Apopka. Please visit our website regularly to review new products and specials. And of course, please call if we can assist with your aeration needs.

Thanks for your business.

I will be making the Air stones available through the online store shortly but feel free to contact me if you are ready do buy and I haven’t listed the size you want yet.
They range in size from .5″ x .5″ x 1.5″ all the way up to 1.5″ x 1.5″ x 12″ and come with Linear Polyethylene fittings in several different sizes (1/4″ Barb, 3/8″ Barb and 1/2″ MNPT) and can ship internationally.

I will be adding the different size air stones to my product listings so check back often.

    what is the cost of the 1.5″ x 1.5″ x12″?

  • John Regep

    I was wondering if you might be able to help me with a problem I have. Being as in your in the aeration business I’m sure you’ve probably been down this road before. Can you tell me what size diffusor and pump I would need to fix my 10000 gallon septic tank. Any help or reference would be helpful, thank you

    • TCLynx

      I really do not know the answer to that since the aeration for aquaponic systems is a totally different thing from septic.
      First, is this an engineered aerated 10,000 gallon septic tank? I would assume that if it is meant to be an aerated system that you would simply replace the air pump and diffusers that were there in the first place. I thought most aerated systems came with a service contract for maintenance since they require it at least annually. If this is not already an aerated septic system with the appropriate multi chamber design, filters and engineering, then simply adding aeration to the septic tank will likely cause leach field failure in very short order.
