Hi to All,

We are using between 3-5 cfm per aeration device.  The aerator puts 
out so much air then it gets divided by the number of aerators, and then  
factor in the depth of water, total volume of water and a variety of losses 
as the air moves through the system. I do not have the exact formula.  
We had some engineers calculate all this for us.  But the general rule 
of dividing the number of aeration devices by total output of air system 
may help.
