Kasco Aerators, or High Oxygen Transfer Units, are designed to withstand the rigors of commercial aqua culture operations. With more vertical pump type aerators in use in North America than any other manufacturer, Kasco Aerators have been field tested and proven superior. Aerators are used when a decorative fountain pattern is neither necessary or desired. Kasco Aerators agitate high volumes of water at the surface to maximize exposure of water to the air for gas exchange. Kasco Aerators are in use around the world in commercial aquaculture applications to farm ponds; from municipal waste water plants to your back yard, Kasco Aerators are designed to perform under a variety of conditions to ensure quality to you. Bottom Screen not included in price. Auburn University has performed tests on Kasco Aerators and has found that Kasco's Aerators SAE (Standard Aeration Efficiency) for all models is at least 3.0 lbs. of oxygen per horsepower per hour of operation.


So what size do I need?

FREE SHIPPING.  This is the price for aerator without float or bottom screen. If you need either one, please call us. The bottom screen is primarily used to protect swimmers, but they are NOT supposed to be in water anyway. If you have a mount already, you do not need a float.

Kasco offers the following advice for aeration. Kasco's recommendations, in our experience, or for optiimum aeration, and we have quite often found that customers don't need as high of horsepower as Kasco recommends. A lot has to do with the degree of algae problem and with number and size of fish in the pond.Fountain, Aerator, & Circulator sizing: A quick rule of thumb is as follows

  • 1hp per acre for high oxygen transfer, “AF”, pond aerator models.
  • 1.5hp per acre for the VFX Series Aerating Fountains
  • 2hp per acre for the JF Series Aerating Fountains
  • Exception: the 4400VFX and 4400HVFX will aerate a 3/4 acre area due to the more efficient 4 blade prop

Fountain Mountain lists these items including the float. If you do not need the aerator float, please call us for a lower price. Kasco is the leader in pond aeration, and Fountain Mountain is proud to be a distributor of their products for over ten years.

For ponds with a lot of much buildup, you might want to add Kasco Macrozyme, a bacteria which is non-toxic to humans, fish and other animals, and releases billions of beneficial bacteria and enzymes to reduce muck, neutralize odors, and clean your water. One 8-oz bag treats about 1/2 acre feet of water.
