They are oilless with ball bearing construction and low amperage draw. Make sure your battery system amperage is compatible with the amperage draw of the air pump, see the chart below. Made in the USA these diaphragm pumps are long lasting and come with a 6 month warranty. Replaceable diaphragms and diaphragm repair kits make this low maintenance and allows you to keep the pump running for thousands of hours. Normally the brushes will need to be replaced after around 3,000 hours of usage. The compressor will run for about 6 hours off a regular car or truck battery. If you have a solar charger for a battery you can easily build your own solar aerator. The low-cost of the pumps makes it affordable to use several of the units in larger ponds to provide thorough airiation in all regions of the lake or pond.
