Potter Automatic Air Vents

The amount of oxygen in water is around 10 parts per million, or .001%. The amount of oxygen in trapped air is 210,000 parts per million, or 2.1%. Removing the dissolved oxygen from water is negligible when compared to the amount of oxygen in the trapped air pockets.

Focusing on removing the trapped air is the number one priority and the most cost effective method.

Potter offers two great solutions for automatic air venting:
