Great LakesŪ De-Icing SystemLooking for a low-cost de-icing system for a pond or lake? Here it is! This aerator will do a fine job keeping water open. The heart of the de-icer is the reliable Sweetwater® rocking piston compressor, which uses only 253 watts at 115V. The compressor is mounted in a cabinet with an exhaust fan to provide cool compressor operation. Air is delivered from the shore-mounted compressor to the air diffuser assembly located in the deepest area of the pond. This is done via HeavySet® self-weighted tubing (included) to insure that the tubing and the diffuser assembly stay securely on the bottom (HeavySet® tubing does not contain lead or other metals).
The special de-icing diffuser assembly is a 10" diameter flexible membrane that moves less water then the ALA4GL diffuser and is ideal for de-icing applications. The diffuser is mounted on a weighted plastic support. To prevent any possible bottom erosion and to give the assembly a stable platform, a 24" x 24" polyethylene underlay is included. Weighs 63 lbs. One-year warranty on all parts, five-year warranty on diffuser.
Note: If used for summer aeration/destratification, switch to an ALA4GL diffuser assembly.
Suitable for ponds from 1/4 to 5 acres. Call for placement suggestions.
