Product Evaluation and testing ......Bottom Drains and Accessories
We at COASTAL KOI consider product evaluation very important within our overall sales strategy, with a policy of only offering for sale items that we consider suitable for the purpose and to the best of our ability correctly described.
By carrying out our own in house evaluations on most products we sell and applying a high percentage quality control system of checking, we try to meet the needs of our customers.
When dealing with Top quality products by leading manufacturers : The names Aquamax Sequence Nexus Etc. spring to mind, the need for quality checks and evaluation is not quite so important. We tend to concentrate our in house evaluations on the lesser well known budget priced imported items.

Jaeger aeration elements are designed for stirring and aeration of water in activation and out gassing tanks for sewage water treatment plants or for the aeration of other liquids, such as fish breeding ponds, water tanks and for the pneumatic flotation.The fine bubble aerators are fitted with a rubber membrane made from EPDM rubber (Ethylene Propylene). At a certain air pressure the perforated membrane opens and the air begins to flow in the form of fine bubbles.
