Battery Operated Aerator

5 posts in this topic

Is there an aerator out there that operates from a battery only? I want to rig a kind of portable livewell.
Thanx

Robert, I have a Fish Saver which has 3 suction cups to secure on bottom of tank/bucket and a pipe to spray water back down. There is also Bubble Saver which operates on 1.5 D batteries and clips on side of bucket.
Another way it to purchase a small bilge pump (100/300gpm) and rig up small PVC pipes to aerate tank.

I use mine in a 5gals bucket.

Oh yeah. Reversing a bilge pump and sticking it in the bottom of a bucket works great.

You won't lose a minnow, even on a 95 degree day with the bucket in the direct sunlight.

Speaking from experience.

I've got an old ice chest like Phyl describes, and the pump that Valv describes, my pump is 12V. Works fine. Have kept bluegills alive all day when its 85, also kept bass and pike alive in it to. The ice chest was a freebie, and the pump was $20+/- at Fleet Farm.

If there is something I could gripe about, its the foam the pump makes by spraying the water. Oh well - its a cheap way to add a livewell to a boat that doesn't have one.

Somebody told me to use and old cooler and one of those portable pumps and that it worked really well. But of course I have not tried it.

    • Reddit I believe   https://www.reddit.com/r/politics/comments/5i63d1/40_electoral_college_members_demand_briefing_on/db5or6d/?st=iy9h32qk&sh=3f2619dd  
    • Hillary and DWS didn't commit any crimes as difficult as that is to believe. Sketchy politics certainly, but what happens within a political party has no legal ramifications. The FBI already cleared Clinton of wrongdoing with regards to the email.   Flynn and other members of Trump's team are likely in violation of the Logan Act.
    • Well, if that happens then let the chips fall but do you think they will be arresting Hillary and DWS at the same time? If so it would be a good start.
    • I would wager the FBI arresting members of Trump's team, likely starting with Michael Flynn. Flynn made 5 phone calls to a Russian Ambassador on the day Obama imposed sanctions. Trump's team defended the 5 calls by stating Flynn was just wishing him Merry Christmas, which is odd because it was December 29th.   http://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-eyes-michael-flynns-links-to-russia-1485134942    
    • Nick, so what are the top schemes the left plans to conjure up for impeachment?
    • Go Pats. They need one for the thumb.
    • And I am sure it will be a waste of server space You do understand that you just defined the meaning of the word conjecture don't you?     But there is conjecture so you have that  The only thing odd is that you are falling for the same type of fake news the Birthers fell for during the Obama years. Don't you understand you are quickly becoming the JV of libertopia?    Well, If you feel compelled then go ahead and forward your research to the proper authorities so they have a better chance at putting together the evidence to prosecute him because apparently without your insight they are not able to connect the proverbial dots. 
    • The dnc had russian propaganda that the russians hacked and released? Guess they provided the transparency the left is always so concerned about.
    • It's just a compilation of sources done on a public google drive. Pasting makes it searchable on this site.   https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzLcl2gcA6O_SWN3WWM4WTlMZ2M/view
