Brand new from water-quality management specialist Otterbine is the 'Fractional' five-in-one aerating fountain and mixer system.
Not only is this 0.5hp unit more efficient and cost effective to run, but its spray can also be quickly and easily switched between four different patterns and into a horizontal mixer system for maximum value and versatility.
This means that those with ponds and water features of around half an acre or 2,000 square metres or less can ring the changes with four attractive spray patterns. And simply by adjusting the discharge angle, the Fractional unit is transformed into a horizontal mixer, further improving water aeration and flow in operating depths as shallow as 16in/14cm.
Ideal for small- to medium-sized bodies of water on golf courses, estates, residential and commercial developments and in parks and gardens, the Fractional unit is a versatile and cost-effective way to keeping algae blooms, stagnation, foul odours and even fish deaths at bay. That's because efficient water circulation helps to maintain optimum oxygen levels, keeping water healthy and appealing.
Costing from just £1,270 +VAT, the Fractional unit has an impressive oxygen transfer rate of 1kg/2.2lbs per hp/hr, with a pumping rate of 506 gallons per minute or 115 cubic metres per hour. That means it's got the highest performance rate of any fractional aerator on the market. Improved serviceability, corrosion resistant rotors and a two-year warranty further add to the value and longevity of this unit.
A version with lights is also available to further enhance the fountain aesthetics.
