Compressor for aquarium: making yourself

An aquarium compressor is a device that supplies air to the water to enrich it with oxygen. Often the lack of air happens due to too high a temperature of the water. Such a situation can lead to the death of fish, so additional air supply devices are used.

In order not to spend money, you can make a compressor for the aquarium with your own hands. This process does not cause special difficulties and does not require special skills.

Homemade micro piston compressor

There are a lot of ways to manufacture a compressor, but the most simple ones are worth highlighting. The first version of the compressor for the fish with their own hands is as follows:

  1. Need to find a small electric motor. Connect to power supply. Desirable engine power is no more than 12 volts. Energy costs will be minimal. It also allows you to make a compressor on batteries for the aquarium with your own hands. Actual with frequent or prolonged power outages, as well as when moving.
  2. The eccentric to which the pump is mounted must be attached to the engine. The eccentric moves the pump, and it circulates the water. This allows you to enrich the water in the aquarium with oxygen.

This option is noiseless. It does not interfere or disturb during sleep. If sound is not a problem, then you can make an aquarium compressor with your own hands in another version:

  1. You need to purchase an electromagnet. The frequency of 50 Hz, which operates from 220 volts.
  2. Attach a pump to it. When the magnet is on, the pump membrane will begin to move with the same frequency that the electromagnet works. This allows you to pump air into the pump, and then into the aquarium.

The work of a magnet creates a certain noise. This can cause inconvenience.

Often, aquariums are installed in places where a large number of people accumulate. That the microclimate remained optimum, operation of the compressor needs to be supported constantly.

If an electromagnet was used in the manufacture of the device, then the compressor should be hidden so that the noise would not interfere. You can hide in the pipe, which will be held under the aquarium.

We’ll have to buy a duct. It is needed to transfer air to the aquarium.

This will allow the system to function optimally.
