Hiblow XP-80 is Hiblows rare earth magnet pump. This pump is used for aerobic septic system units that require the introduction of oxygen. The oxygen is able to efficiently break down the waste product and the result is an environmentally safe effluent.
The XP80 is an international pump with a proven track record of success. With approximately 10 years on the market, this septic air pump is fully equipped with multiple safety features.
Although this pump has been in production for 10 years, it is just now being introduced to the USA market. The Hiblow XP-80 was a huge international success. The Hiblow XP-80 septic air pump has been in production in both Europe and Asia. This international success is largely due to the XP taking less power to run. The Hiblow XP-80 takes 0.9 amps compared to 1.6 amps for a normal Hiblow pump. The efficient power saving pump presents a financial saving opportunity for consumers.
The reduced power consumption also translates into less heat, being generated within the septic unit. With less heat being created the unit will be able to work for a longer period of time. This is because the structural integrity of the unit can be directly related to its temperature regulation capabilities. A unit that consistently runs with a high temperature will more quickly degrade the diaphragm material.
In addition to creating less heat the Hiblow XP-80 also has a thermal overload protection system. Another money-saving safety feature is the Hiblow XP-80’s integral low-pressure alarm.
The low air pressure alarm will recognize any unusual drops in air pressure. A significant drop in air pressure could mean that the unit or air pump is failing to perform properly. Being alerted to low air pressure early on can prevent money from being wasted on faulty functions.

What is the life expectancy of the xp 80 HiBlow aerator and can it be rebuilt
The Hiblow XP-80 should last longer than the HP-80 it is a rare earth magnet pump and they take less poer to run. Because they take less power they run cooler than the HP-80 the diaphragms should last longer do to this by about 2-3 years. So life expectancy before rebuild in southern United States should be 5-6 yeras and 7-8 in northern states. Yes they can be rebuilt just like the older model.
