Providing you have adequate depths, this model can aerate ponds up to 1 ½ acres. It will eliminate unpleasant smells from dissolved gases, increase oxygen level that’s necessary for fish and plants to thrive, and control the growth of algae.
This best-selling aerator has the rocking piston compressors capable of operating as deep as to 50’. It’s quite a small, but efficient model that can help you reduce organic bottom muck and it’s 100% safe because there’s no electricity in the water and all circuits are protected.
The other upside of this Living Water Aeration unit is its ability to de-ice during wintertime. The only maintenance it requires is the replacement of piston cups (every 3 to 5 years) and regular cleaning of the inlet air filter on your compressor with some water and soap.
The max depths are 5-8 feet for a ¼ acre pond, 8-12 feet for ½ acre pond, 12-18 feet for 1 acres pond and 18-20 feet for 1 ½ acres pond. The deeper it is, the less air volume is required for the proper aeration.
Its efficiency depends on a pond. One kit works best in circular, square and oval ponds, so if your pond is long and narrow, you may need more than one, so it’s a good idea to consult with us before you make any purchase.
|Max Depth||Max Pond Size|
|5-8 feet||1/4 acre|
|8-12 feet||1/2 acre|
|12-18 feet||1 acre|
Very very good
Easy to setup and install. Would recommend.
I have a one acre pond that was turning due to lack of oxygen. I have owned my farm for five years and this is the first time I have had trouble. We have had a dry hot summer and the water level was lower than it had been. With quick research I found out that my spring was not feeding the pond, it became stagnate; thus, it suffered from a lack of oxygen. My research led me to realize I needed an aerator system. After researching on the web I came across the "Living Water Aeration" page. The aeration system arrived within a week of purchase. I found it very easy to set up and install. It is working great and is providing more bubbles, i.e., oxygen than I thought it would. .
The AirPro Deluxe aerator kit was a cinch to install. Make up a couple of barbed hose fittings, connect the hose, toss the aerator into the deep end of the pond and plug in the pump. Didn't realize that a cord to plug the pump into an electrical circuit wasn't included but luckily I had an old extension cord available that I could cut and fit to purpose. After a week my 3/4 acre pond is noticeably much clearer, the **** is gone.
We dug a new pond 82x59x10 to drain a continually muddy backyard area. The aerator went in to prevent the algae blooms that have marred a neighbor's pond, and so far its bubbling away happily. Now that colder weather is coming, I've shut it off and will let the pond freeze during the winter. I expect that come spring it will be ready to go once more.
