Aquarian Commercial 3HP
The Aquarian Commercial 3HP produces a large volume of water as a column from 1700 gpm for a two-horsepower aerator up to 2700 gpm for a three-horsepower aerator. The commercial’s exclusive diffuser deflects the water column in an omnidirectional pattern at right angles to the water surface and outward from the unit. As the redirected water flow from the diffuser is propelled through the air at a tremendous velocity, oxygen is being added at a substantial rate providing Standard Oxygen Transfer Rates from five to six pounds per horsepower-hour, depending on the horsepower selected.
Aquarian Commercial floating aerators are designed to perform two basic functions:
- Create a large continuous air/water interface to transfer atmospheric oxygen to the liquid being aerated.
- Mix the liquid contents and keep degradable solids in suspension.
NOTE: Other cable lengths and sizes are available. Call for pricing.
Can add a quick cable disconnect and/or an on/off switch if needed.
Benefits of Aeration using the Aquarian Commercial 3HP
Decreases Pond Muck
Actively infusing oxygen into your pond effectively decreases the accumulation of pond muck, which forms due to decomposing debris, algae bloom, and fish waste. Furthermore, proper aeration actively plays a crucial role in breaking down nutrients, actively promoting a cleaner and significantly healthier pond habitat.
Increases Oxygen Levels
Additionally, if you intend to have fish in your pond, it is essential to ensure sufficient oxygen levels. Without an aeration system, oxygen levels can decrease to a dangerous point for fish life. A well-designed aeration system helps prevent this issue and is equally beneficial for submerged plants.
As the bubbles from the aeration system or diffusers release into the water, oxygen levels increase significantly. This plentiful oxygen circulation allows water to flow throughout the entire lake or pond, promoting a healthier aquatic environment.
