Kasco3400VFX-3/4HP Aerating Fountain
Kasco offers the highest efficiency design on the market for low power consumption when compared to other brands. 7.3 running amps on 120V for low operating costs.
Provides the best of both worlds: pretty display and lots of aeration. The VFX aerating fountain models use a propeller instead of an impeller for ultimate aerating capabilities. Limited to the V-shaped pattern to maximize flow of water and aeration. Add lights for beautiful night displays.
Kasco Marine is our favorite brand for durable, state of the art, industrial grade fountains. Perfect for the business or residential property where reliability and quality are of utmost importance. Please note photo of closeup on water flow! Kasco VFX fountains exceed the competition when it comes to flow and thus aeration!

Below are Kasco’s recommendations for horsepower/acre. But these can vary for healthy/unhealthy ponds with lots or few fish. Please call us if you want to know flow rate of the fountain. Kasco’s fountains are independently audited for accurate flow ratings.
- 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

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.
