Note: This instruction
guide to building a solar pond aeration system is a guide only. We
are specialists in aeration and not specialists in solar power systems.
The following list of parts and supplies will enable you to build
a cheap solar pond but we are unable to help diagnose or service any
solar systems. There is contact information at the bottom of this
page if you need help with solar componants. We are providing this
information mainly for those of you who are fairly handy with tools
and have a basic knowledge of electronics, tools and are able to work
on their own at problem solving.
have so many people asking me for directions to build a solar aerator
for their pond. It's unbelievable the number of people who have a
pond and who want to be able to run a small DC 12 volt air pump or
fountain using solar power. The idea is great! Use a small solar panel
to run a fountain or air pump to move the water and add precious oxygen
and increase the circulation in the pond! The idea is sound but the
reality of solar power and building a solar pond are quite different.
The cost of an effective and reliable solar powered system is many
times more than a comparable electric system.
DIRECT AERATION SYSTEM
Uses no batteries. Provides 0.5 CFM (cubic feet per
minute) airflow at 3 PSI. Suitable for small ponds with a maximum
depth of 6 feet.
The list of parts in the system includes everything needed to build
the system. Basically the layout of the small aeration system is according
to this instruction diagram which goes from left to right:
Tubing & 1 Diffuser
Direct Drive 12 Volt DC Solar Aeration Systems
of customer deman The Pond Report has brought Solar Direct
aeration into its product lineup! with the introduction of
the OWS AERMASTER DD solar powered aeration systems for remote
ponds and lakes where power is not available, too expensive,
or if you are off grid. Where a windmill isn't viable the
solar direct systems, requiring no batteries, are also an
environmentally conscious solution.
These plug and play solar systems come complete with high
efficiency solar panels, energy efficient compressor, high
volume cooling fans, fully adjustable manifold housed in weatherprrof
ventilated cabinet. Diffusers are micro-bubble technology,
self-cleaning, non-clogging membrane diffusers emit millions
of tiny bubbles that increase dissolved oxygen levels while
eliminating stratification, improving water quality and clarity.
The systems are available as solar direct systems with 12
volt direct current pumps or as a hybrid solar/ac system that
will operate with solar power when possible but will automatically
switch to AC power when there is not enough sunlight to operate
the DC pump.
Free operation. We have eliminated the expense of rechargeable
batteries and charge controllers by offering a direct drive
(DD) aeration system. This reduces your cost along with the
maintenance issues associated with a lot of extra components.
Each system includes 2 panels with aluminum mounting brackets
and adjustable pole bracket with variable angle configuration,
compressor(s), an OWS DD solar controller module, heavy duty
steel cabinet with locks, mounting pole, solar power disconnect
switch, cooling fans, pressure gauge and a pressure relief
valve. Each DD solar aerator can be operated by itself and
totally independent of other aeration systems or it can be
combined with a windmill aeration system to give you a longer
operating time each day. It can also be combined with an electric
aerator or windmill and electric aerator combo.
I know I know,
often we want to use alternative energy sources because we want to
reduce our greenhouse carbonized footprint or whatever it is they
call it these days and I agree that it is a noble and worthwhile goal.
Unfortunatly the reality is this and I beg you to listen closely before
you decide to go on the trail of building your own solar bubbler or
Solar power is more expensive than an electric system!
read that? Maybe you should read it again? Solar powered aerations
systems can cost three and four and five times more than an equivalent
electric system. Of course it depends on the cost per kilowatt hour
in your state or privince, where I am it is around 12 cents per kw/h,
but even at the price of electricity it should be understood that
a do it yourself diy solar airiation system will not be cheap as far
as the initial purchase goes...but once it's bought you don't pay
anything else!!Or do you? DC air pumps will burn out quicker than
regular AC air pumps so you can expect to replace your burnt out DC
pump maybe every 6 to 18 months..the good thing is is that DC pumps
are cheap and you can buy a Thomas DC pump or a SweetH2O pump for
between $100 and $500 so the cost of replacing these little beggers
isn't too bad!
really want to build your own...read on and build your own solar
If you have access to
some of the parts then you can just buy what you need and save retail
pricing and buy wholesale.
Here is the breakdown of parts needed to build your do it yourself
d.i.y solar pond aerator:
a Solar Panel
Kyocera KC85T 85W 12V Solar Panel with J-Box
solar modules are a reliable, virtually maintenance-free power supply
designed to convert sunlight into electricity at the highest possible
efficiency. KYOCERA began researching photovoltaics in 1975 and
has installed thousands of systems throughout the world since 1978.
These systems are ideal for charging storage batteries to power
remote homes, recreational vehicles, boats, telecommunications systems
and other consumer and commercial applications. KYOCERA's advanced
cell-processing technology and automated production facilities produce
highly efficient multi-crystal photovoltaic modules. To protect
the cells from the most severe environmental conditions, they are
encapsulated between a tempered glass cover and an EVA pottant with
a PVF back sheet. The entire laminate is installed in an anodized
aluminum frame for structural strength and ease of installation.
Solar Converters Ppt 12/24-10A, 12/24V Lin Curr Booster
Used to control and power a DC motor from a solar
panel. The unit prevents stalling of the motor under less than full
sun condition. The power of the sun is transformed to the motor
running conditions so as the sun goes down the motor slows down
instead of stalling. Conversely, or as the sun comes up the motor
starts running much earlier instead of staying stalled for hours
when it could be running. This translates into more running time
of the motor where it spends a lot of time working instead of stalled
doing no work.

Solar Pumps & Aeration System Approximate Cost
64-watt solar panels at some solar stores can retail
from $600 - $2000
We recommend the following for the best value in Cheap Solar
15 Watts Solar Panel:$129, 30 Watt Solar Panel:$260, 75 Watt Solar
For larger scale pumping, off-grid systems and cabin power systems
we use the larger 165 watt solar panels: 165 WATT Mitsubishi Solar
220-amp hour 6-volt battery $130 -$360 depending on quality
Air compressor $300 - $2500 depending on durability and included
Control regulator and LVD $250 - $800 depending on quality and durability
1/2 inch air line (weighted) $120 - $250 depending on length and
flexibility and memory of material
Air diffuser $65-$500 depends on size and water volume moved
Of course, the mountings for panels, enclosures for batteries and
compressor can be purchased from your local dealer. The system can
be permanently located at the site or mounted on a trailer for easy
relocation if livestock or cattle or involved. While pond aeration
systems are usually maintained on site the winter watering systems
are known for being moved from pond to pond.
current booster is required to combine the solar direct power from
the panels to the DC powered pump and this is usually a simple system
that can be picked up at a local supplier of parts designed for
alternative power sources.
Your typical aerator includes a bubble diffuser which can be a EPDM
type disc diffuser of nine or twelve in diameter membrane diffuser
or an airstone or any manner of diffuser tubing also known as diffuser line, de-icing hose or bubbler line. While many systems can include a length of airline, often
100 feet, there is the self sinking weighted tubing variety of airline
that makes installation much easier. Standard airline will float
and it is rare that one of my clients will decide to buy regular
poly plastic tubing instead of the weighted tubing because it makes
installation so much simpler. Still, if saving money is a priority
you should use floating airline available for about 30 cents per
foot at the local hardware store instead of self-sinking tubing
that costs from $1.15 TO $2.25 per foot.
For those of you who want to go beyond the solar direct system there
exists many retailers who specialize in solar pond systems that
include deep cell battery operated systems that can provide continuous
aeration over 8 to 12 hours per day due to their deep cycle battery
systems. Fundamentally these solar pumps are the same but instead
of operating only when sunlight hits the solar panels they have
the ability to charge deep cell batteries during the sunny hours
of the day and can operate the pump during times when there is no
light which is often preferable as aeration systems an their best
will function only during the evening hours when their is no chance
for aquatic plants to contribute oxygen due to photosynthesis.

**Note: You must accept that creating and building and setting up
a solar aeration system is a very very VERY complicated affair and
while we are offering the parts and instructions on how to build
your system we cannot provide ANY help or installation guides. If
you wish to have a simple, turn-key system then please contact someone
else as we are unable to privide any help beyond this list of products
and parts. Any failure of the system to function as expressed, implied
or as desired is not gauranteed. Solar aeration systems are a very
touchy and persnickety project so if you wish to buy or purchase
from us then please do so at your own risk. We have provided a list
of parts and instructions but do not imply or warranty that this
will actually work!
Beyond the need for aeration I am also asked constantly about solar
pumps for fountains. Most floating mountains or even fixed base submersible
fountains require large horsepower pumps to drive thick columns of
water through brass nozzles to create dramatic effects and to create
a large display such as a crown and geyser display using a solar pump
is not financially feasible. Of course there are pumps that can be
simply placed into a pond or dugout and with the addition of a brass
fountain nozzle can create dramatic displays of height but the limitations
of amperage inherent in solar pumps means that only smaller water
bodies like water gardens can even entertain the concept of a solar
just don't have the power to push water beyond more than a few feet
above the water level unless they are large scale and typically expensive
Even when I visit a eutrophic pond in need of major treatment I inevitably
come upon the question of solar systems designed to power cottages
or country homes. There are cottage and complete solar systems that
retailers create that include homemade packaged photovoltaic power
systems from 50 to over 2000 watts that are perfect for providing
full power for small cottages and vacation homes. These store bought
systems usually come complete with cutting edge solar modules, controllers,
mounting hardware, batteries, wiring and installation guides. Basically
all you need is a few basic tools and a few hours to build your solar
installation. Most of these systems are expandable especially if you
consult a local solar dealer for tips and ideas on building a do it
yourself solar system! You can always add on more solar modules at
a later time or improve your system with a windmill or a micro-hydro
turbine if you have running water on your property.
If you are thinking of adding more solar modules in the future it
may be wise to select a pole-mounting structure capable of holding
additional solar panels and choosing a voltage controller capable
of handling the additional power. There are standby-grid-tie systems
that not only allow you to feed power back to the grid, but it will
also offer you the security of back-up power in the event of a power
failure. During sunny days the solar array mounted on your roof for
example, will feed extra electrical power back to the utility grid.
In many provinces and states you may be able to sell your excess electricity
to them via the hydro electric lines. During a blackout or major ice
storm or even a terrorist attack the systems deep cell battery bank
will provide you with the electricity to run multiple loads including
furnaces, refrigerators, lighting, computers, televisions and phones
for homes cottages and small businesses.
Where can solar
aeration be used?
Most Solar aeration systems are custom-built for ponds and lakes when
AC power or an air line from a AC powered system is not practical.
The Solar panels can be designed and sized easily to supply power
to a water pump or a combination bubbler and water pump.
Designing a solar aeration system
Designing a solar powered system can be done quite easily. For example,
a pond of 2,400,000 litres or 650 000 gallons can be properly aerated
with a minimum of 0.5 - 1.0 CFM (cubic feet per minute) at a minimum
but if we can provide up to 4 CFM we can create multiple aeration
zones by using multiple diffusers. Again, the limitations of the DC
compressor are the key variable. For proper solar system design, the
compressor size and combined power requirements should be calculated
for correct aeration. Once these mathematics are calculated, the precise
number of solar panels, wattage and batteries can be determined and
I have designed a standard indication showing the approximate component
costs for a solar powered aeration system.
following formula is often used to determine the number of solar panels
Example: (based on Canadian summer use) An average Canadian summer
day will provide about 6.0-6.5 hours of charging time equaling a 12-volt
compressor rated load of 3.8 amps (45.6 W) per hour.
To determine the number of panels using the formula, the following
is calculated. 12v x 3.8amps x 24hr x 1.1bf = 1,204 Watt/hrs Based
on this initial calculation, three solar panels will be required.
This assumes use of 64-watt panels, which produce (64 watts x 6 hrs)
384 Watt-hrs per day. Therefore, (1,204 ÷ 384) = 3.1, round to three
When installing a solar powered aeration or watering system, one should
determine the number of batteries needed or calculate how much deep
charge battery power is required during cloudy periods or if the panels
are disconnected. This calculation will depend largely on how often
the system is inspected and I recommend a battery storage capacity
of three to five days.
generic example, if four days of storage are required and a six-volt
220-amp hour battery is being used, then you should calculate the
number of batteries needed using the following formula: Load: volts
multiplied by amps (Watts) Duty cycle: running time percent Run time:
length of time required To determine the number of batteries using
the formula, the following is calculated: 45.6w x 1.0 x 96 hours =
4377.6 Watt/hrs The number of 220 A/hr batteries required is 3.32,
rounded up to four. This is achieved because a 220 A/hr battery holds
(220 A/ hr x 6v) 1320 Watt/hrs, which, when divided into reserve capacity
equals 3.32 batteries to get four days of reserve capacity.
I recommend using six volt batteries because they provide the best
storage life. For a 12-volt system, the batteries must be used in
increments of two in series equaling 12 volts; and for a 24- volt
system, increments of four in series that equal 24 volts are required.
Cost of Solar Aeration Depending on the system components used, pond
solar aeration can vary from as low as $1,900 (solar direct - with
no battery storage) to $18,500 for 24-hour aeration using multiple
diffusers or shallow linear aeration diffuser tubing.

Some interesting links on solar power and solar
1. Solar-Powered Dugout Aeration
"Solar Power (Photovoltaic, PV) Photovoltaic, known as PV, relates
to the production of electric current at the junction of two substances
exposed to light. Photovoltaic systems consist of solar arrays (solar
panel) that convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity,
which can be used directly or stored in batteries.
Most DC systems are 6, 12 or 24 volts, or by using an inverter can
be converted to alternating current (AC). Solar panels consist of
silicon cells, which have no moving parts, are durable and have a
life expectancy of 25 years or more. Most solar arrays begin delivering
power or charging batteries with as little as 10% of sunlight with
each cell of the array converting approximately 14% of the available
energy to DC power. "

2. Solar Pond Aeration and pond aeration.
"Turnkey solar power pond aeration systems are a good alternative
to a windmill pond aeration system. SC Solar has been providing solar
pond aeration systems for years. Solar lake bed aeration is extremely
important to the health of isolated ponds. Golf course pond and farm
pond stagnation problems are eliminated with our solar pond aeration
We also use the aeration system for the hog waste industry problems
to increase the decomposition of swine and other livestock waste issues.
Call to discuss your hog waste lagoon options. SC solar may have the
answer that you have been looking for. ."

3. Solar Water Pumps, Solar Fountains & Solar Waterfalls
"Solar fountain pumps can be used to create solar powered waterfall,
pond and well projects. Crucial to the appearance of a well-designed
garden is the lighting system and water features selected to enhance
it. Silicon Solar is the proud manufacturer of a variety of solar
fountains and solar water pumps.
Below you will find wholesale, manufacture-direct prices on solar
powered pumps & fountain kit sets. We also carry a large selection
of cascading fountains and many other complete fountain kits. With
our unique solar fountains, we provide a wide selection of water pumps
and other items that can be used in creating waterfalls in many landscape
4. Solar Pond Bubbler Works At Night
"The solar panel activates the pump automatically and provides nearly
continuous aeration. Our Solar Bubbler Pump Kits come complete with
0.09 cfm submersible bubbler, anchoring attachments, 16 feet of air
tubing and a 0.5 amp, 18 V solar panel. A standard 12 volt car battery
(not included) is also required. Yep, it works at night! The battery
is charged (continuous operation requires 4 hours/day of direct unfiltered
sunshine, 40 watt/hrs) by the built-in solar panel while allowing
the pump to run continuously for up to *2 weeks of cloudy days (rainy
days provide more oxygen/mixing than many aerators) and indefinitely
through the evenings on sunny days.
That's right our unit is designed to maximize the use of the built-in
solar panel to charge your standard 12 volt car battery while operating
the bubbler. Other units on the market do not operate at night or
require you to buy several additional solar panels and elaborate battery
stacks and control systems that cost thousands of dollars to do what
we do with every single unit. They just don't get it, you need our
aeration that operates 24/7, not theirs that only operates during
the daylight hours."

5. Solar Power Kits For Your Dream Cabin
"We definitely understand the need of many to have a small off-grid
solar powered cabin away from the cities and tucked away where you
can escape the worries of everyday living. You probably built it yourself
or played a major part in it's construction and whether it's made
of straw bale, brick, wood, or some other form of alternative construction,
it would probably be just a little homier with a little sunshine generated
electricity. Well, we can sure help there... What you see here is
a just a few of the entry level solar cabin kits we offer. We are
happy to offer free quotes on solar cabin and solar home power systems
of any size. "
