wall mounted receptacle to prevent water from dripping onto the receptacle or plug.

INSTALLATION: The air pump should be installed by following either of the two recommended methods: 1. Place the air pump on a surface lower than the water level of the aquarium. To avoid damage from accidentally spilled water, do not place the air pump directly below the aquarium. Important: It is recommended to always use a Check Valve (sold separately) in the air line between...
INSTALLATION TIPS: • The pump should be placed in a location which is dry and relatively free from dust . Do not place the air pump on carpet, as fibers might collect on the pump and clog free- flowing air from entering pump. This will reduce the air output and the service life of the pump.
To regulate air volume using an air control valve with multiple outlets, it is recommended to have the last valve available to release excess air pressure build up (see BACK PRESSURE). In regulating the air pressure, it is best to work from the valve farthest from the input of the air valve.
to restricted air flow. This occurs when excess air is produced by the air pump, or when the air channels are inadvertantly blocked. Back pressure over time resulting from clogged air stones or other air system blockages and restrictions will cause the diaphragm to expand or rupture.
TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS If the air pump fails to produce air, check the following: 1. Ensure that the air pump is plugged in. 2. Ensure that there are no blockages in the air hose assembly and that all valves allow air passage. If no air is produced by the accessories in the aquarium, remove the airline from the pump and ensure that air is being produced.
