Kasco 5.1JF 5HP Floating Fountain



For 2.5 to 3 acre ponds, maybe larger. This is a large fountain with beautiful displays. Call us. This is 240-volt model. 5-year warranty! Three phrase units also available. Beautiful and powerful Kasco pond fountain. Kasco fountains do not shoot as high as other brands but they aerate a heck of a lot more.  The best on the market. Please see our closeup on a nozzle pic so you can see how big the nozzle holes are. The bigger the hole, the lower the height, but the more aeration!

Features of the 5.1JF Kasco Fountain:

  • Five Multiple Patterns in One Unit:  five different displays come included! Easy to change nozzles. Or you can add a premium nozzle for low additional cost.
  • Efficient / Low Power Use: Highest efficiency design on the market. Reduces operating costs over the life of the unit. 20 running amps on a 240V circuit for low operating costs. Very efficient floating fountain
  • Clog Resistant: Unique water-deflecting fountain nozzle design gives you the most clog-resistant model on the market. Successful operation in as little as 26 inches.
  • Rugged Motor: Environmentally friendly design with a hard-face internal mechanical seal and external lip seal for protection against leaks. Seals are silicone carbide for long life. Long-life top and bottom ball bearings. Flood oil lubricated for excellent heat dissipation. Motors repairable at factory.
  • Corrosion Resistant: Superior dependability in salt-water or other corrosive environments. All external metal motor, float, and hardware components are of stainless steel composition and protected by a sacrificial zinc anode.
  • Low Maintenance: Clean the motor housing once or twice per year and replacing the sacrificial zinc anode when visibly corroded.
  • Fully Tested: ETL listed to stringent UL and CSA Safety Standards.

  • This is a huge floating pond fountain.

PLEASE NOTE: Below are Kasco’s recommendations for Horsepower/Acre to properly aerate. However, do keep in mind that these are optimum recommendations, and we’ve often found pond owners can choose smaller units than Kasco recommends, depending on the degree of algae and the number and size of fish.

  • 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
  • 5 HP Pump Operates in 26″ of water!

The 5.1JF, 240V Floating Aerating Fountain also includes a GFCB protected control panel. The C-95, 240V Control Panel with Timer, GFCB protection, 120V GFI Protected Outlet for Lights, and Photo Eye for light operation comes standard with the 5.1JF Floating Aerating Fountain. Kasco recommends a licensed electrician to install the C-95 Control Panel and the wiring on the 5.1JF to hard-wire the Floating Aerating Fountain into the C-95 Control Panel.

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 clarify your water. One 8-oz bag treats about 1/2 acre feet of water.
