Aeration is crucial for maintaining clear water and happy, healthy fish in lakes and farm ponds.
Adding dissolved oxygen to your water via a bottom diffused bubbler will keep your water feature looking and functioning its best. That means less time spent maintaining your pond, and more time sitting back and enjoying it.
Without aeration, ponds stratify into two layers: cold, oxygen-free water on the bottom and warmer, oxygen rich water close to the surface. An aeration system eliminates this thermocline by mixing the layers, creating an oxygen-rich environment throughout the pond that reduces muck and algae while creating a healthier environment for fish.
Airmax PondSeries Aeration Systems are powerful enough to aerate ponds up to 8 acres and can be adapted to fit uniquely shaped ponds for maximum aeration. The single plate PS10 system is excellent for small or regularly shaped ponds, while the eight-plate PS80 tackles water bodies up to 8 acres or ponds with an irregular shape that require precision plate placement for even circulation. Airmax PondSeries Aeration Systems are manufactured in the USA with high-performance, SmartStart Technology and professional-quality components.
Inside the Airmax PondSeries Aeration System
Airmax Aeration Systems are versatile and easy to install. PondSeries Systems can be placed at the water’s edge or up to 1/4 mile away from the pond with the addition of Direct Burial Airline (sold separately). Our standard kits come equipped for 115V power with a 6-foot power cord. (230V systems are also available. Call 717-751-2108 ext. 2).
Airmax Composite Cabinet
The ETL electrical safety-certified composite cabinet features a faux rock finish to blend into any landscape. The removable top and side high-density air intake filter protects the compressor and pre-wired electrical box from outside contaminants while providing easy access. Other cabinet features include an elevated base to protect against damaging flood water and a ventilation fan with rain shroud to protect against moisture and heat damage. Standard cabinet dimensions for the PS10 through PS40 are 23″L x 17″W x 15″H. The PS80 cabinet is 27″L x 24″W x 18.75″H. Comes with a lifetime warranty.
SilentAir Compressor(s) with SmartStart Technology
The heart and soul of each PondSeries Aeration System is a powerful, whisper-quiet SilentAir Rocking Piston Compressor. SmartStart Technology protects the compressor during pressurized restarts following power supply interruptions. Each highly efficient 115V compressor comes with rubber mounts to reduce noise and vibrations to ensure quiet operation. Comes with a 2-year warranty.
ProAir4 Weighted Diffusers
Designed for maximum oxygenation, the ProAir4 Weighted Diffuser uses low-maintenance membrane sticks to release tiny oxygen bubbles into the water column. The integrated check valve prevents back-pressure on the compressor, and the innovative sled design keeps the ProAir 4 submerged while maintaining an upright position during installation. Comes with a 5-year warranty.
