Now with FREE SHIPPING! Below are Kasco’s recommendations for horsepower/acre. But it also depends on pond’s health and number and size of fish. Call us if you want flow rate. Kasco has its fountains independently audited for accurate figures.
- 1.5hp per acre for the VFX Series Aerating Fountains
- 2hp per acre for the JF Series Aerating Fountains
- Exception: the 4400VFX and 4400HVFX will aerate a 3/4 acre area due to the more efficient 4 blade prop
Provides the best of both worlds: pretty display and lots of aeration. The VFX models use a propeller instead of an impeller and the V-shaped pattern is used to maximize flow of water.
Designed to provide optimum performance and a stunning display for large ponds, Kasco’s 5.1VFX (Single phase) & 5.3VFX (3 phase) expands the proven VFX line into a 5 HP model.
The classic Kasco “V” fountain pattern, 9′ tall x 34′ wide gives this pond fountain a beautiful eye-catching display. The larger motor and enhanced propeller design gives a pumping rate of over 800 gallons per minute, adding maximum oxygen to improve your pond or lake aeration. It will assist in improving your water quality as well as adding to the aesthetic appeal of your pond. This fountain is powerful, plain powerful.
It is available in a 240V single phase or 208/240V 3 phase, 60Hz model. The 5.1VFX is supplied with a state-of-the-art GFCB protected control panel, model C-95.
For ponds with a lot of much buildup, you might want to add Kasco Macrozyme, a bacteria which is non-toxic to humans, fish and other animals, and releases billions of beneficial bacteria and enzymes to reduce muck, neutralize odors, and clean your water. One 8-oz bag treats about 1/2 acre feet of water.
