When it comes to moving water and air through your Aquaponics FOOD Forever™ Growing System, choosing the right pump is one of the most important choices you will make. After careful consideration, the pumps on this page are the ones we’ve chosen for our Systems.

Water Pumps

Here are the Elemental H2O Pumps, each of which can be placed inside your fish tank or used as an external in-line pump. When used as a submersible they are fully adjustable. Remove the blue front cover and thread in the supplied fitting for use as an in-line external pump. They have a sealed magnetic drive motor and carry a one year warranty.

Air Pumps

The other kind of pump you need is an Air Pump. The Air Pump is as important as the Water Pump because without air in the system your fish will die, and they’ll do it fast because even water life needs oxygen. In fact, the water oxygen level, called dissolved oxygen, is one of the most important water quality components in an Aquaponics system; and it needs to be of suficiant quntity. The best levels of dissolved oxygen are close to 80% saturation, which translates as 6-7 milligrams per liter (parts per million–ppm). Levels below 3 milligrams per liter are a hardship on aquatic life and levels under l milligram per liter are deadly. The popular and well-known Elemental O2 brand is the one we’ve chosen because they are durable and reliable.
