    Don't think they are the same thing...Spirovent sort of combs the microair bubbles out of the water as it passes. A top-hat air job (don't remember the name) accumulates bubbles since it is often the highest point. A SPirovent can be anywhere in the circuit and do its job as I understand it. Now, whether you need both, that is the question.
