Aquarian Quantum 5HP
The Aquarian Quantum 5HP is designed to perform two basic functions:
- Create a large continuous air/water interface to transfer atmospheric oxygen to the liquid being aerated
- Mix the liquid contents and keep degradable solids in suspension
The Aquarian Quantum produces a large volume of water. It produces from 3400 gpm for a five horsepower unit up to 8300 rpm for a 20hp unit. The Quantum diffuser redirects the water column from the propeller to an omni-directional pattern that is propelled at right angles to the water surface from the unit outward. As the redirected water flow from the diffuser is propelled through the air at a tremendous velocity, oxygen is being added at a substantial rate.
A sizable induced flow creates maximum directional flow as well as maximum dispersion of aerated water within the basin being treated.
All Season Performance: With over 95% of the weight of the aerator beneath the liquid surface, the Quantum is guaranteed not to capsize due to ice or turbulence.
NOTE: Other cable lengths and sizes are available. Call for pricing.
Having proper aeration for your pond or lake can benefit your overall layout. You’ll be able to have a clean pond or lake along with an aesthetically pleasing landscape. Let’s go over exactly how crucial proper aeration is for your pond and lake.
Decreases Pond Muck
Infusing oxygen is one of the first steps to a cleaner and better pond. Proper aeration benefits the natural habitat of your pond or lake because it will help break down nutrients. However, without proper aeration, a combination of decomposing debris, algae bloom, and fish waste can accumulate in the form of pond muck.
Increases Oxygen Levels
If you plan to have fish in your pond, you will need an infusion of oxygen. In other words, no aeration system in place means that oxygen levels will become low and could become dangerous for fish life. Proper aeration is also beneficial if you plan on having submerged plants. As the bubbles from your aeration system or diffusers release into the pond, oxygen will become plentiful. As a result, your water will move throughout your lake or pond.
