Aerators are a good choice if a floating, low profile form of aeration is desired. These aerators work well and give great results without the decorative look and pattern of a fountain. Aerators increase and maintain oxygen levels in ponds improving water quality and overall fish health. With the increase in dissolved oxygen, the pond will be able to support beneficial life which can reduce the sediments as well as nutrients that might otherwise be available for undesirable algae.
The perfect choice when a high performance, lower profile, floating surface aerator is desired. Volcano II and Hydromax Aeration Series produce astonishing aeration results due to their high GPM pumping rates and oxygen transfer capabilities.
Kasco Surface Aerators are the clear market leaders, with more installations than any other manufacturer. Independent testing at Auburn University found that Kasco’s aerators’ SAE (Standard Aeration Efficiency) is up to 3.0 lbs of oxygen per horsepower per hour of operation, making them some of the most efficient and effective units available.
Kasco Surface Aerators dramatically agitate high volumes of water at the surface, maximizing air and water exposure to create valuable gas exchange. Surface
Aerators are your best choice for aeration when a decorative fountain pattern is neither necessary nor desired.
Typical applications include:
All Kasco Surface Aerators are self-contained, lightweight units that float at the surface with a single power cord returning to shore and two or three mooring lines anchoring the unit. These units are designed to withstand the rigors of the harshest applications. Easily installed and maintained, these units are proven performers for both continuous-duty pond or lake aeration or for supplemental aeration for unique applications.
Otterbine Industrial Aerators provide unique solutions to managing water quality, from low profile patterns to horizontal mixers and can be used in a variety of applications. Their experience in wastewater treatment is obvious in the performance and results delivered by these surface and sub-surface industrial aeration systems. Each of these units can operate in less than 40in or 1m of water and are supported by a comprehensive 3-year warranty.
Lack of oxygen in a body of water can lead to fish kills, foul odors, algae growth, and stagnant vegetation. Our floating aerators have been made and proven to prevent these problems by adding vital oxygen to your pond or lake, for a clean, fresh, healthy ecosystem.
Scott floating aerators also eliminate mosquito breeding, inhibit surface and bottom growth, and keep your water sparkling clean, all while creating a mesmerizing, high-volume “white boil” effect of highly aerated water.
