Kasco Robust-Aire Aerators For Ponds
Looking For The Most Efficient Pond Aerator On The Market? Kasco Has It!
As a pond equipment manufacturer, Kasco has been helping pond owners for a long time. It's coming up on 50 years of being the premium fountain maker in the industry. Fortunately they didn't stop at making just beautiful fountains.
Aeration in any form is highly beneficial for a pond and in shallow waters, surface based agitators, aerators or bubblers, and fountains, can help a great deal. But as a pond get's deeper, beyond 6 to 8 feet, these surface based tools just aren't the best fit for deep waters.
That's where a sub-surface aerator comes into play, and Kasco makes, what we believe, to be the best, most efficient aerator of it's kind in this class.
What's interesting is that Kasco didn't come to market quickly with it's Robust-Aire systems. The research and design took a handful of years to refine down into something they could put their brand on and be happy with.
During the testing phase, they looked closely at many of the top aeration systems on the market and set out to build something better. And they did.
Results showed that the Robust-Aire diffuser came out to be anywhere from 10 to 40 percent more efficient than the other top designs in the industry. This is mind blowing when you think about it.
An efficient diffuser allows air to escape at a very low pressure, which produce smaller bubbles with less friction loss. The bubbles are approximately 3mm in diameter. The U-shaped design and placement of the four diffusers enhances the upward flow of water.
What this means for you, is that a pond owner can use the same, or even smaller sized pump, in some cases, and get better oxygenation and turnover of the water. This adds up to better performance and decreased costs of operation and both of these are very good things!
