Let Nature help aerate, circulate and destratify your pond! These
wind driven aerators replace electric units that can cost between $30
to $50 per month to operate. In only a few short years these windmills
will pay for themselves! Ideal for aerating remote ponds that do not
have electricity nearby! These new windmills are similar to the units
we previously offered but feature many new improvements:
Pumps up to 3 CFM of air in low winds - up to 4.5 CFM in 15+ MPH
Fast, easy assembly - many steps were completed for you to reduce
Redesigned blades with rounded edges for better air flow
Larger diaphragm and check valves for increased air flow
Patent pending technology minimizes bearing fatigue and increases
Effective in as little as 3-5 MPH wind
Windmills can be placed up to 1000' away from pond edge, this is
helpful for ponds that are in low areas or suronded by trees. Windmill
can be located in open area with tube running to the pond. 54''
diameter head has 12 blades and is self governing in high winds. 18
gauge galvanized steel parts will last for years in all weather
conditions. Oval holes in all parts make assembly much easier!
Windmill price includes diffuser and 100ft. poly tubing
(upgrade to weighted tubing + $145.00)
Windmill Pond Aerators
Operation - Aerates without
electricity in as little as 3-5 mph winds. One system is designed
to aerate ponds that are up to 2-3 acres in size. For larger
ponds, additional systems can be utilized. When working with
wider/shallower ponds, one system is effective, but we recommend the
use of multiple airstones to disperse the oxygen more
efficiently. The OWS Selector valves allow you to regulate the
oxygen to each airstone. The windmill can be placed up to 1000'
from the pond for effective aeration.
"BalCam" Technology -
Patent pending technology that increases the amount of air produced
with a single diaphragm utilizing the new balanced camshaft
system. This innovative new design uses a straight camshaft to
balance the workload on three internally mounted sealed bearing's
giving you much longer bearing life.
Manufacturing - Manufactured in
the USA with top quality 18 gauge galvanized steel to our newly
engineered design specs. Each piece is cut to order and the
system assembled in the Outdoor Water Solutions facility.
Assembly - Windmill designed
for easy assembly with oval holes for quick alignment and rounded
corners for improved safety when working with steel.
Angle Cut Blades - Engineered
to capture and operate even with a limited amount of wind speed. Longer
than many competitors on the market to catch more wind. Total
head width is 73", which is the largest head on the market!
One Piece Hub Assembly -
Reduces the amount of parts to improve assembly time and improve on
long term maintenance of the windmill. The one piece hub uses two
locking collars and a through bolt at the end of the compressor
shaft. You can install the head on the shaft in 5 minutes and it
will stay put. Other companies use squeeze clamps that take over
an hour to install and can loosen over time.
Larger Compressor 1/2" Piston Stroke
and 10" Diaphragm - Engineered for most efficient air production
and maximum compressor life. Can run up to 3 different diffusers
aerating ponds and lakes from 1/4 acre up to 3 acres in size.
Self-governing Heat and Tail fin design
- This uniquely designed tail fin captures the maximum air and is
designed to turn out of excessive winds to prevent damage to
3 Sided Tower Design - The
three sided tower allows for ease in lowering and raising the windmill
for maintenance and repair and allows for the need of only three ground
mounting locations. Available in 12', 16' and 20' heights.
Secure Locking Mechanism - Allows the windmill head to attach securely
to the shaft.
5 Year Warranty - Covering all
major mechanical defects inside the compressor for a full five years
from the date of purchase. Other windmill parts are covered for a
period of 3 years from the date of purchase against defects in
workmanship or materials.
Up to 4.5 CFM (cubic feet of air

0.5" Balanced Camshaft Design

Why Buy an Outdoor Water Solutions Aeration Windmill?
To keep ponds clean and healthy, water requires oxygen. Without
it, water turns unhealthy, resulting in fish kills and bacteria
growth. You can prevent this by adding oxygen to the water with
an Outdoor Water Solutions Aeration Windmill. An added benefit of
aeration is it helps prevent freezing water through water circulation
beneath the surface of the pond.
Benefits of Aeration:
Reduces algae, bacteria and odor
Circulates stagnant water
Improves water for fish, livestock, recreational sites, golf
courses and wildlife
Would you be able to run a fountain with this product rather than the aerator?
Our pond is visible from the house and I would like to have some sort of fountain.
No that would not be possible with a windmill. This windmill has a compressor that compresses air and sends it through the tubing to the diffusers, there is no mechanism for pumping water or making a spray pattern.
Is there any protection on this windmill from excessive wind? We live in central KS, and routinely experience 40-50 mph gusts of wind.
Yes it locks in place at high wind speeds. Also if you know a bad storm is coming you can purchase a hinge system with the windmill for $50 and simply lay the windmill down. Typically in 40 to 50 mph winds you will not have to lay the windmill down with the hinges, but that lock mechanism will protect the head from spinning to hard and getting damaged.
we have a pond in northern Michigan which is 90' w and 240' length . about 12' deep in the center , so was checking this 12' windmill out on your web site . it does say aerator kit so if i ordered this kit will it come with everything i need to get it working ? the pond is surrounded by trees and have one spot at the north end where i could assemble it . David ,thanks
Yes the windmill would perfect for your size pond. You have approx. 22,000 square feet which is less than 1/2 acre. This windmill can aerate up to 2 acres at your depth so you will have more than adequate aeration.
To answer your other question. The windmill will arrive to you in multiple boxes and you will have to assemble it. It is not difficult to assemble and it does include detailed instructions. It will likely take you a little while to assemble considering the number of parts. It will include everything you need to get it up and working.
