What to Know About Solar Powered Pond Aerators - Air-O-Lator - Pond Aeration & Maintenance Products

Unless you’re an environmentally conscious person, the term “solar powered” won’t usually carry the same weight that it would for someone focused on environmentally-friendly practices. When it comes to pond management, solar powered pond aerators are pond care products that can benefit anyone with a pond who’s environmentally friendly or not. There are several benefits to investing in a solar pond aerator and today, we’ll be going into detail about what they are and how they work for you and your pond.

Solar Powered Pond Aerators

In addition to providing clean, environmentally friendly powered aeration to your pond, a solar powered pond aerator works without expensive electricity installations. They are completely sustainable and assist in maintaining your pond without having to run expensive electrical lines to remote locations, also making them cost-effective.

Solar pond aerators and solar powered fountains can dramatically improve the quality of your pond water. They are fully automatic systems that are designed to run up to 20 hours per day under standard operating conditions. They also come with a backup battery that will keep your solar powered pond aerator running in the event conditions are less than ideal. As opposed to electric-powered pond aerators, power outages or poor weather conditions will no longer be a concern with solar pond aerators.

Just like electric-powered pond aeration systems, however, they do come in various sizes and types from small units for ornamental ponds to larger units and even surface aerators. Fun fact: because of the inexpensive cost for installation and without the need for powerline installation and ongoing electricity costs, solar powered pond aerators can pay for themselves within the first year!

If you’re considering investing in solar powered pond aerators, there are a few things you want to consider. The first thing to take into consideration is location. Because it’s solar powered, you will need to keep it in direct sunlight for it to work properly and effectively. You should also take into account the size of the solar pond aerator or surface aerator to ensure there is enough space in the pond.

You’ll also want to consider the water mass needed to be aerated as you’ll need to choose the right capacity so that your solar pond aerator or solar powered fountain will be able to deliver the correct amount of oxygen to the pond. 

When you work with one of our experts here at Air-O-Lator, we’ll go over these items as well as the size of the solar panels you’ll need for your solar pond aerator as well as the size of battery you’ll need for adequate pond aeration in minimal sunlight.

Further, our pond management experts will discuss a backup battery that will assist in keeping your solar-powered pond aerator and solar-powered fountain operating throughout the day and night.
