Ask a Question

    You would need this septic air pump model but with a alarm attached to it. It is a Hiblow HP-80A. 

  • How quiet are they

    The Hiblow HP-80 is very quite almost silent you will not hear it when you are outside or in the house. Most of the time on inspections we have to physically touch it because you can not hear most of them. 

  • Does the xp 80 HiBlow aerator take the same rebuild kit as the hp 80 hiblow aerator

    No the hiblow xp-80 will take a different rebuild kit than the HP-80 it will be slightly more. 

  • What it is the average lifespan of these pumps, while it is running continue.

    It really depends on the area you live in. In southern states, we see an average of 3-4 years before they need to be rebuilt. In northern states, you can get an additional 2-3 years out of them. 
    Some people get longer life out of them they are the exception not the rule. Wehaveseen them run 10 years no issues but its rare. 

  • Can a 1/2" line be hooked up to the ouput of the pump oulet?

    It is about a 1/2 inch what you can do is get a male threaded 1/2 fitting with a female slip on the other end. You take the male end and put it in the rubber 90 that comes with it and then use 1/2 PVC the rest of the way.

  • Does it come with a rubber 90 to connect to the pvc, or hose tubing to the septic air pump. Also would like to know what size pvc is the easiest to connect the the rubber 90 if it comes with it.

    Yes it comes with a rubber 90 to conect it to pvc or tubbing of your choice. 1/2 inch is the easiest to connect the pump use a threaded male  1/2 with slip non threaded female on the opposite end. The threaded part well screw nice and tight into the rubber 90 and be secure. The rest can be glued into place easily. If you already have pump like this they are all pretty universal and the outlet is pretty much the same across manufacturers. No modification should have to be done. 

  • Does this pump hp80 need an enclosure like my rotary vans pump had?

    It is advisable you put the HP-80 under something to cover it from the elements slightly. We don't use a fully enclosed enclosure as you can see the unit and we feel it make the septic air pump run hotter than it needs to. We use a more of a cover made of fiberglass, and it's entirely open on both sides giving proper ventilation and excellent visibility to the Hibow. 

  • what is the diameter of the discharge port? and does it come with hose?

    The diameter is slightly smaller than a 1/2 and every pump comes with a new rubber 90 hose to connect the Hiblow to the hose or pvc coming from the aerobic septic system.  

  • Does this pump operate continuously or does it come on and off based on the circumstances?

    The pump is supposed to run continuously. There is not an aerobic septic system that currently uses the Hiblow HP-80 that comes on and off. Specific systems do have septic air pumps that do turn off for a period of time 3-4 hour, but it is for nitrogen reduction where the home is on a lake or close to a public waterway. The pump only takes five to eight dollars a month to run, so it's not a significant factor in the electric bill. 

  • I have an alarm on my current aerator that looks just like the one on the HP 80A. Can I take it off of my current pump and install it on the HP 80 that does not come with the alarm?

    You cant do that. Unfortunately, the top aluminum housing is different on the hp-80 and the hp-80a so you couldn't put the alarm on it. You would also have to solder the wiring on as well to make it work.   

  • What is the liter per hours for this pump

    80 liters per minute. That is what the number means at the end of pumps the liters of air per minute. The Hiblow puts out more but with water pressure and length of the airline by the time it reaches the point of exiting the airline it is at 80 LPM or (liters per minute). 

  • Can this pump be used to airate a small pond?

    Sure you can use this pump the aerate a small pond no issue.

  • Do you have rebuild kit for the 80-0110

    Absolutely, we do. The Hiblow HP 80 rebuild kit works on the Hiblow HP 80-0110 model as well as numerous other septic air pumps that we offer.

  • What is your warranty on the new HP 80?

    Our Hiblow HP-80 Septic Air Pump comes with a 2 year warranty.

  • are the hiblow-80 pumps new or rebuilt why are the HiBlow models more expensive that the Blue Diamond modles

    All of the products we sell are new. They are more expensive because they are more reliable and last longer than the Blue Diamond pumps.

  • it was not running at all so I took it apart and the diaphragms were busted the safety screw was not broke does that mean I need to but a new pump

    We sell the rebuild kits for this pump, that include new diaphragms. You could try to rebuild the pump before replacing it, depending on how old the pump is.

  • how deep are they rated for

    Maximum of 8ft is the recommended max depth for any diaphragm pump. 

  • How much is shipping

    It is free shipping with the Hiblow HP-80 as with all of our products. The price on the website is the price that you would pay.

  • I'm thinking of replacing my Delta model 60 aerator pump because motor is burnt, with the Hiblow HP-80, is my alarm system that I used with my Delta 60 adapt to your HP-80

    If the alarm is built onto the aerator itself it will not. If the alarm is on a control panel yes it will work no issue.

    Yes the Hiblow HP models run a little hot this is normal. 

  • Can a sinkable air hose be hooked directly to the pump? If so what size hose would one need etc. 3/8" or 1/2"?

    The air hose the connection is around 3/8, but you would want to transfer to 1/2 if as soon as possible to give the aerator the best performance and longevity.

  • Does this Hiblow 80 have the safety screw or the plastic switch?

    The new Hp 80 all have the switch in them now no more safty screw. 

  • My HP80-0113 pump has two hoses. Approx. l" and l/4". I see only one hose fitting on your picture. Does your HP 80 have two fittings

    Yes, it has two fittings one for the main airline that goes to the septic system and one for the small air hose that goes to the control panel to set the alarm off if the unit shuts down.
