mtreno

Question

i got my Oxygenator this winter and i have to say it worked great. had some of the same fatheads all winter i think. have been using a tooth brush to clean it when needed but it seems not to be working at all now. the green light is on and it is freshly cleaned but i cant see the little bubbles coming out anymore. do i need to clean the inside? could it have broke on me? the unit has taken a few bumps but nothing hard and the light is still on? any thoughts? hurry i have bait waiting for some fresh air as we speak.... gave them fresh water and some ice this morning and put the unit in but i dont think it is doing anything. help.....

Did you try soaking the unit in a water and CLR solution?? You could have calcium buildup that is effecting it.

I think you can get it at Walmart or Target or somewhere like that. They used to have infomercials for it. It's some some kind of cleaner/degreaser

Calcium
Lime
Rust remover, works great on these if you have a build up of any kind. Will also take rust stains off lures if you have any.

I believe the CLR solution is a potent base. I hope that won't have any long-term ill effects on your unit.

Here it is from the manufacturer's page:

1. How do I clean my Pure O2 unit?

Cleaning is the same for all of our products! Using a soft nylon bristle brush (e.g. toothbrush), brush gently across the ‘screen’ until any deposits are removed. In the case of an extremely dirty unit, a 50/50 solution of ‘CLR’ and water can be used to loosen the deposits before brushing.

My unit came with a small toothbrush to clean it with but there were no other instructions as found on the web site. Just a suggestion for future models, I wouldn't mind seeing the battery compartment made more waterproof. If you are fishing in the rain it could get wet and possibly stop working. Solution, bring a plastic bag for a cover for now.
From what it sounds like the unit works better in a larger pail (5 gallon) where there is a bigger volume of water if you want to keep minnows alive.

What I do to clean an extremely crusted unit is to mix a 50/50 solution of CLR and water then just dip my toothbrush in the solution then scrub the screens. That way you are not just soaking the whole unit in the solution.

The bait bucket unit (Mini) is designed for 2 to 5 gallons of water and I recommend about 1 dozen of minnows per gallon of water. If you have too many more than that, you will still have plenty of oxygen, but you start to have problems with waste build-up from the bait and that will kill them very quickly.

Good luck everyone and tight lines!\

      With all that amount of guests you have, you need to create the application, yes or yes, it will facilitate communication between you and your clients, making it possible for you to answer each query, doubt and order that they ask of you, in addition to being able to charge them for your service with total comfort, try try to contact a company that is dedicated to developing this type of applications, although I cannot know exactly how much the creation cost will be, so try to have enough capital to spend

      To create such an application, developers specializing in investment applications for banks and other financial services are needed. At https://mangosoft.tech/industry/investment-software-development/ you can order the creation of investment applications from scratch or find ready-made solutions.

      great app idea never heard of commercial apps before. it seems to me that the fastest way to find developers on any exchanges, that is, you need to place your ad and then you will be offered all possible options
    • Conan Bail
      It seems to me that this is excellent advice, but one option is not enough, I think. You need to look at a few and decide which one is best, it all depends entirely on the customer.
    • Andre.y
      the best option is to entrust such work to other specialists, but you will have to pay a lot of money for this, but still I think it's worth it to get a quality product that you will have to work with for a very long time, if not all your life

      Tips for Reducing the Stress of Writing High School Papers  
    • leoholmes
      High school is a pivotal time in every student's life. The challenges of this period range from the courses themselves to the social pressures that come from interacting with peers. One of the main challenges high school students face is writing papers. The reason for this is that writing is a skill that develops over time, and many high school students have never had to produce a paper before. High school students need to write papers for many different classes. These papers may be research papers or essays. These different types of papers all require different skills for help write my paper. However, high school students may struggle with all of them. This is because they aren't used to producing writing on a regular basis.
