Solaer Aeration

solar aeration

The 100% recycled plastic cabinet houses all of the critical components including the charge control system that monitors the solar panel array, the equipment load and the battery back-up system. The battery back-up enables the system to run at night or during extended periods of poor weather. Solaer is designed to operate 20 hours per day and has enough battery capacity to run the system up to three days without any solar input. Solaer systems include solar panels with pole mounting bracket, a specially designed, energy efficient compressor, a high volume cooling fan, a fully adjustable aluminum manifold, Duraplate™ diffusers and self-weighted Alpine™ tubing.

SB 1 and SB 2 Series SB 3 and SB 4 SeriesWe at WhatPond have not had the opportunity to try out one of these systems yet, but does seem to be the way if your pond is not close to an electric source or you would rather not use electric. Keep in mind if your pond is in the woods that this may not be an option for the pond due to needing ample sunlight for operation and charging the system. If you are interested in one of the systems please contact us by email or the contact page to help work out the proper size, shipping details and discounts if applicable.

    Solar/wind systems good enough to pump water, generate power and run aerator.
    Anything on offer?

    HI Steve, A solar system to generate power, run an aerator and pump water would be rather large, up to the size of running a house. I don’t have anything like that and do not do designs for solar aeration only what is offer on the page. This would be something that you would need to get with a solar company to determine how many solar panels and batteries would be required to run the water pump and the aeration system. From there look to the windmill electric generators to do the same.

    I had talked once with a solar company about running a 1/2HP fountain and the system came ended up around 6- $10,000 dollars which they said was a system for a small house. This would only keep the fountain running 20 hours. If there was a time with no sun then there would be no charge on the batteries to run the fountain. I did not pursue that approach any further, plus shipping batteries will be costly for hazmat issues and weight.
    Sorry I wasn’t able to help, but check with the solar and wind power folks maybe prices have come down or there are better options.
