My air lines from the aerator to the air stones float and bisect the pond. This is irritating as some of the stuff that is supposed to float to the skimmer gets stopped by them. Does anyone have ideas to keep the airline from floating?
I thought fishing weights were made from lead? If so would there be negative affects on water quality and fish.Get some small fishing weights and fasten along the air tubing. They make a weighted tubing buts it about $1 per foot!

I have used glass beads with fishing line to anchor submerged plants. 2-3 depending on size works great as an anchor
Second aeration pet peeve - air stones that ALWAYS land upside down when you toss them in the pond. Why aren't they bottom heavy?? I had one pond guy tell me to just secure a rock to the bottom with some rubber bands - I was like "really? Someone can't figure out how to INCLUDE WEIGHT IN THE DESIGN PROCESS?!? haha! I get rage-y about dumb stuff like this! (Don't even get me started about people who drag their junk to the curb on Friday - when trash day is Thursday. So now we all get to look at your old couch/washing machine/mattress on the curb for a WHOLE WEEK! )
I have weighted airline tubes and love them ! You should be able to get them lots of online places, where yowl for pond supplies. Mine came as part of a kit, when I bought a big aerator for summer. I don't have weighted lines for my smaller unit, I run in the winter.
