These are perhaps Kasco’s little-known secret for most efficient use of horsepower for what they are aiming to do.  By creating a strong, directional flow of water, Kasco circulators help to solve many common aquatic issues. This continuous water movement helps to eliminate stagnant areas, remove debris and increase oxygen transfer.

Kasco Bottom Aeration (Diffusers)

Kasco’s Robust-Aire™ systems are super quiet and easy to maintain. Newly redesigned, these systems feature a significant reduction in sound (patent pending), larger air filters on 1/4HP and 1/2HP systems for less frequent cleaning, and a visual maintenance indicator to alert when maintenance is needed.

Robust-Aire™ systems pump compressed air from a shore-mounted compressor through self-weighted lines to a diffuser on the pond, lake or tank bottom. The diffuser then continuously releases micro-bubbles that rise to the surface carrying large volumes of water. This induces oxygen-transfer as well as beneficial water movement and mixing.

All Robust-Aire™ diffused aeration systems are available with an optional remote manifold allowing the compressor to be installed up to a mile away from the water’s edge. 

Product Features

  • Great for depths 8 ft. and deeper
  • No electricity required in the water
