Lake Aerator (Lake Aeration System) - Deep Ponds & Lakes up to 9 acres
Hydro Logic AirLift 3XL™ Aeration System with two (2) 110 or 220 Volt 1/3 HP dual piston air compressors equipped with SureStart technology; tamper resistant,powder coated steel cabinet that blends into its surroundings; manifold air valve assembly with pressure guage and pressure relief valve; and two (2) rugged AirPod XL EPDM rubber, tubular air diffusers. The AirLiftXL series of aeration systems can be installed in both shallow and deeper lakes exceeding 40 feet deep. The AirLift XL series of aeration systems are most often used in deeper ponds and lakes exceeding 15 to 20 feet. For shallower ponds and lakes (less than 15 to 20 feet deep), consider the AirLift XL series, which is terrific in both shallow and deep water applications. Total weight including air diffusers - 150 pounds.
Hydro Logic Products AirLift 3XL pond and lake aeration systems are designed and built to cost effectively mix and aerate ponds and lakes. Hydro Logic AirLift XL lake aeration systems use billions of micron sized bubbles to improve pond and lake water quality. This aeration system can aerate ponds and lakes up to 9-acres in size depending on air diffuser placement, nutrient concentrations, biological oxygen demand (BOD), water depth and other physical characteristics of the waterbody. The dual piston air compressors, which can deliver air under high pressures (water depths to 40 feet), operate very quietly (55 decibels at 2 meters or 6 feet). In comparison, the noise levels of our air compressors are about 15 decibels less than equivalent rotary vane air compressors.
This lake aerator (lake aeration system) contains three (3) AirPod XL™ air diffusers, which simply out perform and out last all other types of air diffusers (air stones, ceramic, micro porous media and EPDM rubber discs). Each AirPod XL contains two (2) self-cleaning 24-inch tube, EPDM flexible membrane air diffuser equipped with a triple check valve system. The air diffusers are constructed to withstand total airflow from the compressors without damaging the EPDM membranes (unlike EPDM disc air diffusers). The base of the AirPod XL provides a large surface area between the EPDM membrane and the sediments, thereby preventing sediment disturbance during system operation. The AirPod XLs are extremely easy to install. Simply fill the two ballast tubes with pea gravel or sand prior to their placement in the pond or lake.
Additional Products Required: DownUnder™ Self Weighted Air Supply Tubing (5/8 in. diamater tubing recommended) - Part No. HLP DUWT 625-100B or Part No. HLP DUWT 625-200R . All fittings are provided in order to connect tubing to the AirPod XL air diffuser(s) and to join sections of tubing together if aeration system and tubing are purchased together. Compressed air from the dual piston compressor(s) is delivered to the AirPod XLs using the DownUnder self-weighted tubing. DownUnder air supply tubing is constructed of a flexible PVC composite and is kink proof and puncture resistant. It's easy to install and comes in several different lengths and diameters to meet your installation needs.
