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.
Healthy pond, happy customer
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.
Great aerator for the price
While I just completed the install of the aerator, it was easy to install. I added another 50 feet of non-weighted line to the 100 feet of weighted line so I could move the box and pump about 75 feet away from our pond and passed some small trees. I am glad I did that as the pump motor, while fairly quiet, still would have been noticeable right at our pond. I did not initially see that a 50 foot non-weighted line was available through the website as it was not in the drop down options. When I learned that the company did have it available and ordered it after the fact, I did have to pay another $20 for shipping. My bad. Anyway, the box, pump, and aerator appear to be of good quality. I am hopeful that it will last a few years before a rebuild is necessary.
