Heathland Group were contacted by a private client who required aeration in a lake on their property. Within the lake was an island where they were planning to build a lodge, providing an ideal place for compressor placement. The client also wanted something that was aesthetically pleasing and could be seen at night, the AirPro Delmar aerating fountain, which is a floating lake fountain with aeration, seemed the perfect option.
After inspecting the size and shape of the lake our technical team proposed an AirPro 4 diffused aeration system to efficiently aerate all areas of the lake. A diffused aeration system pumps air through diffuser membranes and makes its way to the lake surface in the form of millions of tiny bubbles. As these bubbles travel upward they entrain water with them. This water is carried to the lake surface where it becomes naturally oxygenated, thus aerating your lake.
A 2 HP Select Series 2 Delmar Aerating Fountain was also proposed with 4 35watt LED lights to provide a stunning feature to be enjoyed day and night. A control panel that could also be used remotely was proposed for safety and ease of operation. Floating lake fountains have many benefits over traditional fountain pump systems that are usually mounted on the lake bed. Pumps at the bottom of lakes are susceptible to debris such as leaves and weeds getting caught up in them, causing faults to develop or over heating.
Our floating lake fountains are intelligently designed. There are minimal obstructions and a clear passageway for the water flow at all times, so no blockages. All Heathland fountains come with high specification oil-filled motors to greatly extend motor life and power efficiency. Many of our long-term customers have already benefited from our maintenance programs and have fountains that are running efficiently after 10 years.
Once the client approved the proposal our team travelled to Hodnet in Shropshire with all the required equipment to complete the installation. The diffusers were placed in positions to ensure that they were able to aerate all areas of the lake. The compressor was placed towards the back of the island so it would be hidden by the lodge when viewed from the house. The weighted airline from the compressor was trenched within the island from the compressor to the edge of the bank ensuring it was out of sight.
