Shallow Water Fine Bubble Aeration


How deep is your pond, dugout, or lakeshore?

If your answer is under 6 feet, then this system is for you. Shallow water requires more plates but does not require a large plate system. These systems are whisper quiet and work incredibly well to improve your body of water.

Providing bottom-diffused aeration in shallow ponds and lakes with low maintenance aeration systems can provide a unique challenge to pond owners. Less water depth means smaller plate coverage which usually translates to bigger, more expensive, multi-plate systems. Our Shallow Water HP Series Aeration Systems provide multiple plates to provide evenly distributed aeration in shallow water applications without forcing customers into large cost-prohibitive aeration units. Our high-pressure system built with SilentAir rocking piston compressor last longer compared to other diaphragm compressors on the market today.
