Following the same quality that you know from our award winning fountains, our SA line of aeration systems will keep your pond and lake healthy at a reasonable price. We have designed our aeration systems from the best materials. All parts are manufactured to our own specifications. The final product is an efficient, effective system.
Our HD manifolds provide features you will not find elsewhere: pressure gauge options, mounting tabs, extra wide air-flow cavity, etc...
Multiple air diffuser options are available to allow you to fine tune your system to how you want it to perform.
Our weighted air hose is thick, tough, and designed to hook right up to our manifolds and pumps.
If you are not sure what size pump or which type of diffuser to choose, check the FAQ section.

What pump do I choose?
The FLF-SA100 is the smallest pump in our SA lineup and is suitable for 1-3 diffusers and up to 65 feet of hose.
The FLF-SA150 is our mid-level model pump. It can handle 1-5 diffusers and up to 100 feet of air hose.
The FLF-SA200 is the strongest pump in the SA series. It can handle 1-6+ diffusers and up to 175 feet of air hose.
What type of diffuser do I need?
This is a matter of preference. Glass diffusers produce a finer and smaller bubble. This leads to more aeration.
Rubber membrane diffusers are cheaper and easier to clean. They produce a slightly larger bubble than a glass diffuser.
Our HD Glass diffusers are self weighted as are the single and dual 'Self Weighted Membrane Diffusers.
Although not technically self weighed, the HD rubber diffusers (6", 8", 12") will stay on the pond or lake bottom when used with our standard weighted air hose.
Regardless of the type, the longer/larger the diffuser, the more aeration is will provide.
How deep can I put a diffuser?
The optimal depth is 1 to 8 feet. The deeper the diffuser, the more resistance there is to pump air to that depth. Review the specifications tab to ensure that you are not under powering or overloading your aeration pump.
Can I buy a larger manifold than I need so that I can add more diffusers at a later time?
Yes- you can close the output valves on our manifolds on the ports you do not need to use.
Do I need a gauge on my manifold?
Although not mandatory, we recommend this as it will help you monitor system pressure and identify issues such as air leaks or dirty diffusers. Too much pressure can damage the pump.
Can I use this to prevent my pond or lake from freezing?
Yes! Many of our customers use our aeration systems to keep areas of their ponds or lakes from freezing- especially if they want to leave their docks in year round.
Are your pumps weatherproof?
Yes, our SA series aeration pumps are weatherproof and have an IP44 rating. We do recommend to try to protect the pump from direct sun in very warm climates if possible.
Can your pumps be rebuilt?
Yes- Our SA series pumps can be easily rebuilt should the diaphragms need to be replaced. We have the necessary parts available in the parts section of our store. We also offer a mail-in service should you not want to do it yourself. Call us for more info.
As you can see from the picture the aerator really puts out good. I run it 12 hours a day from 7 am to 7 pm and it’s on a timer so I don’t have to go to the barn all the time to turn it off and on. As you can see I still have it hocked up to a black poly pipe, I plan to get a weighted line in the near future. When I first started working on my pond a couple months ago it was covered completely in duckweed and water meal, after treating it and installing the aerator it has cleared up significantly. Very happy so far with performance and price.
I am happy with my pump purchase and it has been working well since I installed it last week. I purchased this pump because it produced more air volume compared to other models and brands. I decided to try to aerate and circulate the stagnant water in back of my house because there is a problem with evasive species of aquatic milfoil and coontail aquatic plants. My lagoon is about 175’ x 75’ and opens to a dead end of a channel. There is little boat traffic here so the water becomes stagnant.
The pump is hooked to a 125’ 5/8” garden hose connected to T-fittings and reducers to 3/8” weighted hose. I installed two Rootscape aerators and two homemade aerators fabricated from Nelson 8-Pattern Lawn Sprinklers with Scotch-Brite pads ziptied to them to break down the bubbles. Attached is a picture of the two working homemade aerators.
Seems to be working good.
This is the SA200 with 3 of the 12” HD Rubber aerators. Might be a little overkill for my 1/8 acre farm pond, but I only run it about 8 hours each day through the night.
I ran a little short on the weighted air line, so used a piece of normal red air hose on one outlet just to the ponds edge, then barb fitting onto weighted line into the water.
Be sure to well ventilate any cover you build over the compressor unit so it can run cooler.
Was real good , we keep details on date an use , so we see if it does last , I read they seem to do good , clean an service it every 6 mo we see
See my review on aerator. Love my setup, as it is making huge difference in quality of water in my pond.
