Question:

How much gas pressure does it take to operate a Submersible Manifold?

Answer:

6” Submersible Units require at least 2 PSI to operate properly. Larger Manifolds will require a larger supply line to get the same effect.

Question:

How deep should I put the manifold below the surface of the water?

Answer:

The closer the manifold is to the surface of the water, the better the performance.

Question:

How large does the supply line have to be to the manifold?

Answer:

6 – 12” manifolds may run off of a ¼” supply line. The gas line will never be larger than 1 ¼” for the larger submersible units.

Question:

How do I keep water out of my supply line?

Answer:

The Submersible Manifolds are designed with a vapor locking system and an in-line check valve to ensure that no water fills the gas line, giving you constant gas pressure.
