Kasco decorative display fountains come in many sizes to fit everything
from ponds to lakes. They add a touch of elegance to every water
feature, with beautiful display patterns; each decorative fountain is
self-contained and designed to float on your pond. They are created for
medium to large size ponds and come with 5 to 7 interchangeable nozzles
to give you lots of different fountain patterns in just one unit. You
can adjust the patterns for your own needs and your tastes, and while
it provides entertainment it also provides much needed aeration for the
pond or lake to keep it clean and odor free.
aerating fountain is useful for smaller ponds. The fountain gives a
wide aerating pattern with an elegant look, while helping to keep the
water clean, odor free and oxygenated. If you want a combination of
decoration and high oxygen aeration, to keep your pond at its best,
then this is a good choice. The fountains can operate in only
15" of water, providing wide surface aeration. They are easy
to install and energy efficient with a weatherproof timing panel
included. The aerating fountain comes with a stand 100' power
cord, although other lengths are available.
Kasco Premium Fountains offer spectacular patterns with special
premium nozzles. The premium fountains come with the premium nozzle and
5 interchangeable spray nozzles which are easy to change without any
tools. The fountains are powered by an oil bath motor which has thermal
overload protection to give you many years of reliable operation with
little maintenance. The motor is protected against leaks and comes
in 2 HP, 3 HP, and 5 HP, depending on your needs and a
100' power cord included in the price. All fountains come
with a control panel which is also weatherproof and includes a timer.
We have a 1/2 acre round-ish pond. Deepest point is 6 Feet - most common is 4 feet. Need aeration for pond muck. Pond was neglected for 10 years before we bought it. We are in the process of running electricity to pond and need to know what service we will need. Recommendations please.
Since your pond has a max depth of 6 feet I would recommend a surface aerator or fountain. A surface aerator is going to give you more volume but is not decorative. An aerating fountain has less volume but also has the added benefit of improving aesthetics for your pond.
If you go with a surface aerator the rule of thumb for sizing is 1 HP per acre so in your half acre pond we would recommend a 1/2 HP surface aerator:
If you want the aerating fountain the rule of thumb for sizing is 1.5 HP per acre so for your half acre you would want a minimum of 3/4 HP. If you want a taller and wider spray pattern you can get a larger HP fountain. Here is the link to a 3/4 HP:
