Following are several different diffused aeration kits. Diffused
aeration systems are the best way to aerate, destratify and create
circulation on ponds over 6' deep. Each system has three basic parts.
1.an air compressor
2.an air hose
3.an air diffuser
The air compressor 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 size,
3.With proper sizing, tubing lengths 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. Air stones can be cleaned (if necessary) in muriatic acid to restore like-new performance. We can build much larger systems or alter these kits to fit you specific needs. Please call for assistance. Kits include everything needed for installation and operation except for tubing weights. Tubing is buoyant and requires a 5# weight every 6-8' sink, or use optional self-weighted tubing. Fountans vs. Diffused Aeration - Which is Better? Fountains are a popular choice when decorative aerator is desired. Fountains splash the surface of the pond and help control surface algae and duckweed, but do not aerate down to the bottom of deep ponds. Diffused aeration is the best way to aerate deep ponds. Because the air diffuser lays on the bottom you achieve total pond aeration
from top to bottom regardless of depth.
We also sell the following types of air compressors:
Linear Compressors - Extremely energy efficient, silent and reliable compressors. Low pressure capability prohibits use in deep applications, but these pumps are great for shallow (less than 6-8') ponds, tanks, aquariums and many other applications.
Diaphragm Compressor - High pressure, low volume compressors widely used for deep pond aeration and destratification.
Rotary Vane Compressors - Medium volume, medium pressure compressors ideal for aeration of larger ponds and lakes less than 18' deep.
Rocking Piston Compressors - Provide slightly higher pressure than rotary vane compressors. Ideal for aeration of ponds/lakes up to 40' deep.
Piston Compressor - High pressure compressors for aeration, destratification and de-icing of waters up to 75' deep.
Regenerative Blowers - Super high volume, low pressure blowers for aeration of tank system and shallow ponds.
