The North Star Fountain Aerator adds an elegant, trumpet-shaped water feature to any pond or lake along with powerful aeration, debris reduction and reliable algae control.

The powerful North Star moves an impressive amount of water per minute, creating a strong surface current to help oxygenate water and eliminate algae and debris. Perfect for commercial, residential, and municipal applications, the North Star not only shines in the daytime landscape, but can also star after dark with our lighting options. You can order and add it now or at a later time.

These units have been engineered to eliminate the need for time-consuming, costly winterizing products and procedures. Simply leave your aerator or fountain in the water, turn the power supply off, and forget about it for the winter. Once the water thaws in the spring, re-establish power to the unit and you’re good to go. All of the components will withstand sub-zero conditions without damage.

GFCI required. Always disconnect power when swimmers are present.

Decorative display lake aerators will give you years of maintenance-free, dependable service with fantastic water quality / pond aeration and is backed up with the strongest warranty in the business!

Propeller

Display Aeration Systems uses a propeller vs. a pump to move the water. This enables the "North Star" display aerators to move massive amounts of water while not clogging. Depending on the size of the pond and the horsepower of the Lake Aerator you can expect to aerate the whole pond water volume several times per week. This gives you the solution to the root cause of most water management problems. The propeller was designed to be utilized in applications where solids and other stringy material (Hair algae, weeds, vegetation, etc...) may be encountered in a lake or pond. The non-fouling design eliminates material build-up on the propeller, mitigating equipment failure.



Nozzles

The North Star Aerator does not have a nozzle and cannot be clogged!!


Significant Difference between a fountain and an aerator!

Most lake and pond fountains are designed with a pump, and quite often many companies use a basic sump pump. Many of these are the same less expensive pumps that can be purchased from your local hardware store. They were originally intended to pump out basements or commercial buildings, not to be used in fountains.

Sump pumps simply cannot pump the volume of water necessary to create a lake or pond decorative display aerator. These pumps were not designed to move high volumes of water. They are intended to pump with substantial water pressure so they can pump water far distances through long hoses effectively.

Unlike lake fountains, decorative display lake aerators need to move high volumes of water in order to do a few things:

• Effectively aerate the pond or lake by moving as much water as possible while refreshing stagnant water. (Destratification)

• Impress the landscape or waterscape not only with its visual appearance but also with the tranquil sound of a mountain stream nearby.

• Do all of this in a very efficient manner.

We understand this problem and does not buy pumps of any kind to be used in our fountains. In fact we use heavy duty all stainless steel motors that rotate a high quality propeller. It works very similar to how a boat propeller works. Water never enters the motor and the propeller literally throws an extraordinarily high volume of the water into the air. Therefore there is no pump to clog nor is there any small pipe outlets to obstruct.

While most 1 hp fountains can only "pump" 3,000 to 8,000 gallons per hour, our 1 horsepower decorative display aerator can "THROW" an astounding 30,000 gallons per hour into the air. AND while the other company's 2 hp fountains can only "pump" a mere 5,000 to 10,000 gallons per hour, a 2 horse power decorative display lake  aerator can "THROW" an astounding 34,000 gallons per hour into the air.

WOW! That's a lot of water!

    Pond and Lake Aeration

As we come closer to the warmer months, it is very important to prepare
for your water management battle. There are many problems such as algae,
mosquitoes, odors, excessive weed growth, and poor water clarity which adversely affect
the overall aquaculture and appearance of your lake or pond without proper pond aeration.

During the late spring and summer season, warm surface water traps denser, colder water on the bottom of the pond. This is known as stratification.  Pollutants such as leaves, clippings and fertilizer sink to the bottom and decay, stripping the water of dissolved oxygen. Anaerobic bacteria, which require no oxygen, can thrive in this environment. These bacteria can cause poisonous gases such as hydrogen sulfide, ammonia, and methane to be released. As these gases rise through the water, any remaining oxygen is absorbed causing unpleasant odors and rapid algae growth. This is a leading cause of most fish kills.

The "North Star" display aerators take the deeper, colder
water from 30" to desired depth (note: desired depth can be achieved with our Bottom Draw Tube) below the surface and forces it into the air through a beautiful display pattern which enables the droplets to capture atmospheric oxygen. This process is called de-stratification or pond aeration. The oxygen is then released back into the water as the droplets strike the surface. The aerated cooler water is layered on top of the
existing warmer layer, breaking down and eliminating the idle stratification
of oxygen-starved water. De-stratification aides the natural process of
biodegrading algae resulting in cleaner, clearer water. The "North Star"
line of decorative aerators effectively reaches the source of the problem and solves it naturally and beautifully.

 Lake and Pond Aerator Fountains for Algae Control

Almost all natural ponds and lakes, with or without aeration, will go through a series of stages with the changing seasons of the year. If you have had a pond or lake for a number of years you may be familiar with some of the processes that take place during the year and if your pond or lake has become stagnant or smelly you likely have read about how aeration can help the health of your pond.

In the spring in most Northern ponds or lakes, as ice and snow begins to melt from the surface of the pond or lake due to the temperature rising with the longer hours of sunshine, several distinct processes start in your pond that may lead to the degradation of the water quality in the pond  or lake. Many natural and man-made ponds when not properly aerated will see water stagnate and the water temperature tends to remain at a very uniform level; warm near the surface and cold yet oxygen starved at the bottom.

When adding the circulating benefits of a floating pond aerator we can reverse many negative changes that occur in a pond or lake including build-up of algae and bottom muck. A surface floating lake aerator can be helpful in that it will not break the thermo cline and using a surface floating lake aerator will ensure that delicate fish will not become over-heated. Using a thermostat controller on your bottom mounted aerator also reduces the risk of fish-kills.

As the spring runoff starts to deposit plant nutrients and organic sediments from the shoreline, many un-wanted byproducts of agriculture and human over-population can cause an imbalance in the eco-system and these nutrients which settle in ponds and lakes and can lead to filamentous algae or green water and other common pond and lake problems.

Without adequate aeration in the pond or lake these sediments will collect on the bottom of the pond or lake and begin decomposing and chemically altering the composition of the pond or lake sediments which can, under the proper seasonal conditions, lead to algae blooms that can disturb the peace and natural balance of the pond or lake. If left alone, over time, with the oncoming warmth of summer you will quite possibly see these additional nutrients begin to encourage a rapid growth of algae, bottom muck, and often cloudy green pond water. Aerating the lake or pond with a decorative display aerator will retard this growth.
