Diffused aeration systems are the best way to aerate, destratisfy
and create circulation on ponds over 6' deep. Each system has
three basic parts:
1) An air compressor, 2) an air hose; and 3) an air diffuser.
The air compressor or windmill sits on shore and pumps air out
through the hose to the air diffuser located on the bottom of the
pond. The result is thousands of tiny bubbles rushing out of the
diffuser to the pond surface, creating circulation and providing
aeration. There are several advantages to using diffused aeration kits
instead of surface aerator:
1) Electric motor is on shore, not in the water,
2) Air diffusers lay on the bottom, ensuring aeration of entire
pond from bottom to top, regardless of depth, and
3) With proper size tubing, hose lengths of up to 2000' can be
achieved for ponds without electricity nearby.
All motors are designed for continuous duty operation and are oil-less for low maintenance. Periodic cleaning of air filter and
replacement of diaphragm and gasket every few years is all that is necessary. We can build much larger systems or alter these kits to
fit your specific needs. Please call for assistance. Kits include everything needed for installation and operation except for tubing
weights. Tubing is buoyant and requires a five pound weight every 6' - 8' to sink, or use optional self weighted tubing. See page 84
for more information on weighted tubing.
