Our 1/4 HP Rocking Piston Pond Aeration System features a Stratus rocking piston air compressor designed specifically for the demanding job of 24 hour operation. Stratus SRC Rocking Piston Compressors are ideal for pond aeration systems.
The shore mounted compressor sends air through tubing to a bottom mounted diffuser for safe and effective aeration. The stream of bubbles rising from the diffuser creates a large circulation pattern in your pond, bringing low oxygen water to the surface where it comes in contact with atmospheric oxygen. This circulation releases gasses that can be harmful to your fish and infuses your water with life-giving oxygen.
Diffused pond aeration is an excellent way to maintain pond health in warm weather as well as winter. Winter operation of a pond aeration system helps to prevent winter-kill by maintaining open water for oxygen transfer and preventing the build-up of harmful gasses below the ice.
This pond aeration system is designed for ponds up to a maximum of one acre. The compressor will operate up to a water depth of 50′. System includes 1/4 HP Stratus SRC Compressor, 100′ 3/8″ poly tubing, single membrane air diffuser, fittings and clamps. Compressor draws 2.3 amps and pumps 3.5 CFM of air. Choose the weighted tubing option for ease of installation and better appearance. 2 Year warranty on Stratus compressor.
