reliable units are designed for maximum pumping volume and
circulation. Although these surface pond aerators are not as decorative
as the fountains, they are the best choice for maximum aeration in a
shallow pond. Because of the high circulation rate, these pond aerators
are especially helpful in controlling surface algae and other unsightly
Kasco pond aerators (also called high
oxygen transfer units) are designed to withstand the rigors of
commercial aquaculture operations, industrial applications, and
municipal waste water plants. With more vertical-pump-type aerators in
use in North America than any other manufacturer, Kasco is the clear
market leader in products proven to deliver outstanding performance and
reliability. Kasco pond aerators dramatically agitate high volumes of
water at the surface to maximize exposure of water to the air for
valuable gas exchange, greatly improving your pond or lake
Typical applications include commercial aquaculture, agricultural
ponds, industrial plants, municipal waste water and backyard ponds.
These units are typically selected for surface aeration when a
decorative fountain pattern is neither necessary nor desired.
Auburn University has performed independent product tests and has found
that Kasco's aerators’ SAE (Standard Aeration Efficiency) is
at least 3.0 lbs. of oxygen per horsepower per hour of operation,
making them some of the most efficient and effective units available.
All Kasco pond aerators are
self-contained, lightweight units that
float at the surface with a single power cord returning to shore and
two or three mooring lines anchoring the unit. The units are easily
installed and maintained by a single person and have proven to be an
excellent choice for both continuous duty pond or lake aeration and
supplemental aeration for unique applications.
