What size weights to use for anchoring a pond fountain or pond aerator?

Weight guide for anchoring your pond fountain or pond aerator!


Pond Aerator anchored in a lake

IMPORTANT GUIDELINES TO FOLLOW::

It is so important to follow these guide lines for anchoring a pond fountain or decorative aerator when using weights. If not done properly, the force of the motor can cause the unit to spin and pull the float down under the water, impeding the spray of the nozzle. Here is a chart of the minimum weight for each anchor according to the size of the floating fountain. Secure a 3/8" or thicker nylon anchoring line to each of the two attached eyebolts on the shaft of the unit, or thru the holes on each side of the float. Make sure lines are long enough to extend outwards, 10 - 15 feet apart for pond fountains, for lake aerator 20 - 25 feet apart at a 45° angle to the pond or lake bottom.

Once attached, place those anchors at the bottom of the pond spaced appropriately for the size unit.
