Solar-Powered Aeration for Lake Management and Pond Maintenance
No need for expensive electricity installation, maintain remote ponds with Solar-Powered Aeration
A Solar-powered Aeration system is an ideal solution to provide clean, environmentally friendly powered aeration to your lake or pond, without expensive electricity installations. Solar-powered aeration is completely sustainable and a cost-savings solution to electric-powered options. Now you can maintain your pond without having to run expensive electrical lines to remote locations.
Solar Powered Aerators range in size from small units for ornamental ponds to larger units for lakes up to 5 acres. Without the expensive cost of power line installation and the ongoing electricity costs, solar-powered units can pay for themselves within the first year!
Pond Lake Management also installs Fountains in Lakes and Ponds
Six factors to consider when investigating Solar Powered Aeration units
One of the important things that you need to remember is that the solar-powered aerator should be kept in direct sunlight for it to work effectively. A location with a clear path to direct and consistent sunlight.
When choosing the location, you should also pay attention to the size of the aerator you will need. Ensure there is enough space in the pond or pool for the aerator.
The water mass needed to be aerated should be considered before you buy a solar-powered aeration unit. If you choose the right capacity, the aerator will be able to deliver the correct amount of oxygen to the pond or lake.
Check the GPH to ensure that the capacity of the aerator matches the size of the pond. GPH is the number of gallons that the aerator will be able to treat every hour. If you have a large pond with 2,000 gallons of water, a 300 GPH solar-powered aerator will be the right choice.
Solar Panel Size
The solar panels absorb solar energy and convert it into electricity. A larger solar panel will be able to absorb more light. If you have a larger aeration unit or multiple units be sure to choose larger solar panels.
The choice of solar panel size will depend on the size of the pond and the amount of water you need to move. If you have a larger pond, then it is best to opt for a large solar panel. A small pond will work best with a small solar panel.
The size of the battery will determine how well the aerator works with minimal sunlight. Check the battery life before choosing an aerator. A good quality aerator will be able to last at least four hours with a full battery charge.
If you want to use the solar aerator all through the day and night, it is advisable to opt for a backup battery. Recharge the backup battery when there is bright sunlight. The recharged backup battery can be turned on during nighttime so that the aerator functions efficiently.
The amount of power put out by the battery and solar panel will determine how efficiently an aerator will run. Pay attention to the wattage of the aerator to determine its power.
