  • Publication number: 20200330933
    Abstract: An aerator includes an air supply chamber into which air is supplied by an air supply pump, a water flow channel connected to a water feed pipe, and a gas-permeable porous body having multiple gas discharge pores and separating the air supply chamber and the water flow channel. Air in the air supply chamber is pushed into water in the water flow channel through the gas discharge pores of the porous body due to discharge pressure of the air supply pump. In the porous body, inner surfaces of the gas discharge pores are coated with a coating film made of a water repellent having such a wettability that a water droplet contact angle is 80 degrees or more and preferably 90 degrees or more, on a smooth flat film surface.
