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
Diaphragm Compressor - High
pressure, low volume compressors widely used for deep pond aeration and
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
