Franklin Electric Co., Inc. offers the new Little Giant® Aeration System that allows contractors to provide a solution for water beautification and biological pond health challenges. This multi-functional, ½ horsepower Aeration System is capable of moving up to 500 gpm – great for bodies of water up to half an acre in size, making unit sizing simple. The Little Giant Aeration System is ready to use out of the box, coming standard as an all-in-one package that includes the float, aerator, and a proven Franklin Electric motor to keep water clean and healthy. The system requires 115 Volts and a minimum depth of 18 inches of water to operate. In addition, the Aeration System can be used for decorating bodies of water, water agitation, ice prevention, and mixing.
One unique feature of the Little Giant Aeration System is its ability to quickly transform into an attractive fountain display. An optional conversion kit includes the pump head, nozzle stem, and multiple fountain nozzles. With the easy installation of your selected fountain nozzle, the system provides up to five different spraying patterns – known as the Sonata, Cantata, Concerto, Staccato, and Crescendo – appealing to any aesthetic preference with average spray heights from eight to 15 feet and average spray widths from 14 to 30 feet.
Surface aeration achieves multiple benefits within one system. The surface tension of the water is broken, creating wave action to minimize surface insects and debris. Oxygen is transferred into the system at a high rate, providing a beautiful visual effect for the landscape and everything around it.
