Air ring on bottom drain problems

Postby thejonesboy » Mon Mar 20, 2017 11:43 am

HI everyone

I have 4mm airline down my bottom drain pipe and a kockney koi air ring on the bottom drain.

Yes I know this is rubbish it was put in by a cowboy builder years ago when I was new to the hobby. ( rebuilding pond next year)

My problem is that he didnt glue the air ring to the bottom drain and every now and again it slips off and goes slightly under the bottom drain dome. this causes an air bubble to build up under the bottom drain dome and stops water going down the bottom drain.

I can clear that via purging the bottom drain.

I would like to ask has anyone got an idea of how I could glue the air ring down without having to dive down to the bottom of the pond or drain the water out to waist height.
I guess gold label sealant on a pole or something!

any ideas would be great.

thanks

Jim
