Sentinel 1/4 HP System / w 2 Diffusers - Airline Sold Separately
For ponds up to approximately 1 to 2 acres in size.
The Sentinel 1/4 HP aeration system uses the all new Stratus ERP rocking piston compressor which creates up to 3.5 CFM air flow while drawing 2.5 amps on a 115 volt system. Optional 230v systems are available upon request. Operational costs are approximately 55 cents a day and it can work in ponds up to 50' deep.
The base kit includes the 1/4 HP compressor, a 2 valve manifold, and two EP plate diffusers. All necessary clamps and couplings are included. 3/8" airline is sold separately and can be found in the related products tab on this page.
**Keep in mind this compressor must be protected from the weather and elements in some way. The kit without a cabinet is fine for use with an existing outbuilding or other protection. Optional packages include a post mounted cabinet (4x4" post not included), and a ground based cabinet.
The deluxe kits include a locking steel cabinet of your choice, cooling fan, accessory electrical outlet, pressure release valve, and a pressure gauge.
The 1/4 HP pump will power up to two diffusers which is useful to spread the released air around in a broader area. Oblong, narrow ponds, and shallow ponds can benefit from this arrangement. Includes a 2 year warranty on the compressor, and a 5 year warranty on the airline, diffusers, and cabinet.
You won't find a better performing aeration system for the money!
