I was looking at your Dock Bubbler packages and have some questions.
First let me describe my dock, which is on a lake that is about 3 miles long and 3/4 miles wide.It is a simple 34 foot long, 8 foot wide dock. It is supported by a rock that extrudes above water level and pylons that surround the rock that are about 28 feet from shore. Previously the dock was narrower and simply rested on top of the rock.
Now, I have added pylons that I believe will need protection from ice.
The depth of the water surrounding the rocks/pylons is about 4 feet at the deepest and 1 to 2 feet at the shallowest.
I was looking at the bubble systems because I have neighbors that ice fish during the winter, so I want to minimize the amount of thin ice that I create by deicing the dock. Also, the lake is relatively shallow around the dock.
My thought is that the small bubbler package may be sufficient for my needs. I think that the 50 feet of weighted bubbler tube would be more than sufficient to loop around the rock and pylons, extending back from the rock towards shore, where it would tie into the weighted feeder line.
I was thinking of getting the optional steel cabinet with fan to house the pump. I plan to place this about 8 feet from shore under an existing deck that is directly behind the dock. Question: The steel cabinet can be used instead of building a small building to house the pump, correct?
I would then run the feeder hose from the cabinet, that would be placed under the deck, under the dock to the bubbler hose that is looped around the rock and pylons.
My next question relates to power. The nearest power source from the proposed location of the pump is an outside outlet on a house that is about 50 feet away. Would this outlet be sufficient to power the pump?
And, what would you recommend to use to get power from that outlet to the pump?
I would also want to get the optional Thermostat/Timer Combo. Would that be located in the optional steel cabinet?
