I would not use that compressor for water larger than 1/2 ac. Do homework as to how much cfm one cylinder vs two cylinder pumps produce. Each diffuser requires around 0.5cfm to operate efficiently. Two ways of using the pump system: A. run it 24/7 with more frequent rebuilds and shorter life span, or B. oversize the unit and run it 50% to 75% less each day which results in longer life span and fewer rebuilds per each 2-5yrs. "Generally" the warmer and more turbid the pond the longer the system should run each day. Warmer and more turbid the pond usually the greater the BOD (biochemical oxygen demand).
