Collection: Air Pumps

Plants require oxygen to live. The majority of plant root systems obtain their oxygen from pockets of air between the soil particles. Plant roots in hydroponics systems obtain the necessary amount of oxygen from the air or directly from the water itself. The primary function of an air pump in a hydroponics system is to force bubbles of air through the water, increasing the amount of dissolved oxygen in the water and ensuring that enough oxygen is available for plant roots to consume. You’ll find a selection of air pumps at Midwest Grow Co to meet the needs of any size grow house.
