Improve the look and health of your pond and make pond management easier today.
Efficient/Low Power Use: Highest efficiency design for low power consumption versus competing units. Reduces operating costs over the entire life of the unit.
Rugged Motor: Environmentally friendly design with a hard-face internal mechanical seal for protection against leaks. Long-life top and bottom ball bearings. Flood oil lubricated for excellent heat dissipation.
Corrosion Resistant: Superior dependability in salt-water or other corrosive environments. All externl metal motor, float, andhardware components are of stainless steel composition and protected by a sacrificial zinc anode.
Low Maintenance: Clean the motor housing once or twice per year and replacing the sacrificial zinc anode when visibly corroded.
Fully Tested: ETL listed to stringent UL and CSA Safety Standards.
Dependable: Backed by a two-year warranty (three-year warranty for the 2, 3, and 5HP).
Ships Easily Via UPS
All models include a float and two (or three) 50′ braided nylon mooring ropes and are available with 50′, 100′, 150′, or 200′ (250′, 300′, 400′, or 500′ for 240V models) SJTOW underwater rated electrical power cords.
Advantages of using our Sub Surface Lake & Pond Aerators / Diffusers
- Create and maintain very large areas of open water and address larger bodies of water effectively.
- No electricity in the water.
- No equipment at the surface. Boating is not hindered and equipment can be left installed and/or operational year round.
- No electricity needed at the edge of the pond or lake. Sub Surface Aerators can be remotely installed away from the water’s edge. Air can -be delivered to the water’s edge instead of electricity. This can result in an installation cost savings.
- This option may be preferred where it is more convenient to have the compressor system consolidated with other equipment.
- Sub Surface Aerators is cost effective to purchase and operate for larger areas. These systems can effectively de-ice and aerate deep lakes -with much lower equipment costs and energy consumption. Sub Surface Aerator systems are the most efficient on the market.
- Low maintenance. Most maintenance and inspection may be conducted onshore. rocking piston compressors do not require internal maintenance as often as other compressors.
- Sub Surface Aeration diffused Air Systems from Weeders Digest provide deep water aeration for ponds and lakes with depths greater than 8 feet.
Improved Water Quality
Here’s how it works: A Sub Surface Aeration compressor aims a forced stream of air through our weighted, SureSink air line and Sub Surface Aerator diffuser. The diffuser disperses the air into micro bubbles, and as they rise to the surface, the motion creates a current that transfers low-oxygen water from the pond bed to the surface. This is important for several reasons. First, it breaks up pockets of low- or no-oxygenated water, called dead zones, that can severely impair the health of underwater plant and animal life. It also prevents drastic changes in underwater temperatures, which can be detrimental to fish populations. And finally, the increase in oxygen forces harmful gasses to the surface, where they can be safely expelled.
Circulating the water from bottom to top means that the underwater environment will have uniform oxygen levels and temperature readings, allowing fish and other aquatic life to thrive. The extra oxygen also allows helpful bacteria to quickly eliminate unwanted organic material from the water. Less organic material means less stinky lake odors, and who wouldn’t love that? Aeration and circulation enhance the look, smell, and overall quality of the water for the humans who use it for play and the aquatic life that inhabits it.
