About Air-O-Lator

For over 40 years, the Air-O-Lator has been making eco-friendly, high-performance products engineered to conserve water and improve water quality. Water systems remain natural and beautiful by being maintained and enhanced by Air-O-Lator products.

Air-O-Lator was originally founded in 1961 under the name Roycraft Industries. In 1967, Roycraft Industries developed the original, Ice-Away de-icer, designed to prevent ice formation in marinas and around docks. Just three years later, the Ice-Away was improved with an exclusive, water-cooled, submersible electric motor.

While positioning the propeller close to the water surface, it was discovered that the Ice-Away performed as an excellent pond and lake aerator and soon became known as the Air-O-Lator.

The Air-O-Lator continues to manufacture Electric Aerators, Solar Pond Aerators, Aerating Fountain, Display Fountains, Surface Aeration, De-Icer, Mixers, and more to improve water quality and beautification while maintaining environmental responsibility. With over 90 years of combined experience in manufacturing water and wastewater equipment, the owners and employees of Air-O-Lator continue to develop and improve product lines.

In late 2021, Air-O-Lator was acquired by Outdoor Water Solutions, Inc. out of Springdale, AR.  The combined companies offer a much broader range of products and strive to offer only the best made in the U.S.A. products to our customers.

    After years of hesitating, last season I added an aerator and dye to our 1 acre, 20-foot deep pond. Despite a drought year that saw the pond level drop by nearly 8 feet, the water condition was clearly better, clearer, and with less algae.
