From Basic Systems to two different Deluxe cabinet options as seen below the PA34, 1/4 Hp aeration system offers different ways to fit your needs in building your aeration system. As a precaution statement, the Basic systems, (no cabinet) the compressor does need to be protected from weather, rain and snow and needs to be able to breathe having air holes for air flow to keep the compressor cooled off. Southern states with long hot summers should look to the different cabinets which have a fan installed in the cabinet to keep the compressor cool. While the northern states may not need the fan we still need air flow to cool the compressor and for the air intake that goes through the compressor out to the diffuser (s).

With the different options to order below you will see options like 2 diffusers and no air line. We can help design and figure out how any feet of tubing you will need if you choose this option. Please let us know in advance before ordering. Another option is with no diffuser in case you have a different diffuser to use or replacing a system you already have. You’ll also see below the option to add sound proofing to your system, if you wish to order, click the add to cart along with your choice of system.

When in doubt please use the contact page so we can help get the correct sized system for your pond needs.

SC-18 Post Mount Cabinet

 

Cabinets in the Deluxe systems are complete with cooling fan, and electrics for the compressor. The choice of cabinets are a post mount cabinet (SC18) which mounts on a 4×4 to keep it off the ground or the SC22 cabinet which sits on the ground. Personal thought is if you are in a flood prone area the post mount would be ideal to keep the compressor up and out of harms way.
