Airline tube per meter (often abbreviated as "per/m") refers to a length of flexible tubing used in aquariums or hydroponic systems to transport air from an air pump or air stone to the desired location.
Airline tubes are an important component of aeration systems, as they help to oxygenate the water in aquariums, fish tanks, or hydroponic reservoirs. They are typically connected to an air pump, which pumps air into the tube, creating bubbles that rise to the water's surface and release oxygen into the water. This helps to improve the dissolved oxygen levels in the water, which is essential for the health and well-being of fish, plants, and other aquatic organisms.
The length of airline tube required for a specific application may vary depending on the setup and the distance between the air pump and the target location. Airline tubes are often sold by the meter or by the foot, allowing users to customize the length to their specific needs. The per/m notation indicates the price or cost of the airline tube per meter of length.
When selecting airline tubes, it's important to consider factors such as the material, diameter, and flexibility of the tubing, as well as the compatibility with the air pump or air stone being used. Proper installation and maintenance of airline tubes are crucial for ensuring efficient and effective aeration in aquariums or hydroponic systems, promoting healthy fish or plant growth and overall system performance.
