What's really great about this sytem is that it is COMPLETELY SOLAR POWERED!! (Yes, FREE
power). No monthly electric bills follow you when using this system.
After many, many requests from those of you who are a long, long way from the Power Grid to your
pond who wanted something "alternatively powered".....................Well, here it is! We've spent over a
year and a half testing, monitoring and procuring the right components for an AFFORDABLE,
DEPENDABLE and BENEFICIAL Solar Pond Aeration system. If you have not aerated your pond
before, trust me...................YOUR POND WILL COME TO LIFE in the coming weeks and months after
you begin aerating!!!! This system is for people with ponds where the cost of connecting to the power
grid is enormous (because if you Can connect to the electricity lines, you're much, much better off
going that route - please read "WHY SOLAR SUCKS" below to learn more).
ABOUT THIS SYSTEM :
You will receive a US made "continuous duty" rated (very important) solar aeration pump (note: style
or color may vary slightly from photo), 50 feet of 3/8 inch inside diameter PVC Rubber Air Tubing (to
connect compressor to the INCLUDED "Self-Weighting" FlowMax Ultra air Diffuser which is "tossed"
out into the pond and allowed to sink and releases the most efficient bubble size for Maximum aeration
& water mixing in your pond. Also included is all the necessary connectors, clamps, inlet air filter, etc.
to install your system right out of the box! PLUS - Our entire system is backed by our 90 Free
Replacement Warranty!!! (folks- please remember, this does NOT cover physical damage to the solar
panel). You should be able to enjoy years of service with this system.
You will have to do the following: Mount SOLAR PANEL securely in a South Facing location at about a
30 degree angle. Panel has a sturdy aluminum frame with pre-drilled mounting holes. The panel is
glass and you don't want it to blow over and break in the wind. (Trust me, i know - we've done it!)
Aiming the panel is easy as you can hear the air pump running faster as you point at the most efficient
angle toward the sun. You will also need to mount the pump in a somewhat sheltered area to keep
rain/snow/sun etc. from direct contact. You can mount the air pump indoors somewhere if you choose
but this is Not necessary. We've found the simplest and best location is at the back side of the solar
panel and simply provided with a small angled roof (tin, wood, etc.) over the top to provide some
This system was designed to be as Affordable as possible, yet still deliver performance worthwhile for
your pond. We've chosen the 15watt panel (see pics) which is over-rated just to the point of allowing
your system to operate during many average "semi-cloudy" days. Output WILL drop during cloudy
conditions, but WILL typically continue to operate. The output will vary from a maximum of about 1/3
CFM in bright sunlite. Less during dusk and dawn and cloudy periods AND will stop running during the
night, ready to resume the following daybreak.
There are options available to those of you wanting more performance. Option #1: Add another solar
panel, for full output even during cloudy weather. Option#2: Install more than one of these systems
and Option #3- For those serious customers wanting a large custom tailored system (prices start at
about $1,000.) we can provide whatever you need if you are willing to invest this kind of money into
your pond project.
So, YES SOLAR Electricity is cool! It's FREE and typically long lived (photo voltaic panels typically last
20+ years in service). Also, not getting an electric bill is awesome too. BUT BEFORE YOU BUY A
SOLAR POWERED SYSTEM PLEASE READ BELOW:
"WHY SOLAR SUCKS" -
1. Solar doesn't work at nite without added expense of storage batteries and usually another (or
2. Solar puts out DC electricity. AC power can be made with the extra expense of a Power Inverter
(also decreases your efficiency, as the inverter uses power to operate).
3. DC powered electric motors are typically not quite as long lived AND More Expensive than similar
sized AC electric motors.
4. Up front costs of installing solar vs. regular system (for same output) is at least Triple!
This covers what we feel are the major points with solar power. If you're still interested after reading
this then perhaps a SOLAR SYSTEM is the RIGHT Application for your needs. Try to find a system
priced anywhere near Our Price that isn't some kind of cheap "plastic toy". You'll probably spend
nearly double anywhere else, if not a whole lot more than that. This is a commercial duty continuous
run system with QUALITY components. This system is meant to provide years of use. Please email
me with any questions. Thank you
