The Aquascape PRO 60 Aerator

Pro60 1I think I’ve mentioned this before, but we’re always on the lookout for better products for both small and large ponds.  There’s no two ways about it, things are always changing and in many cases these adaptions lead to improvements.  And in the world of small pond aerators, the Aquascape PRO 60 aerator is no exception.  It covers something our old line of mid-sized aerators just couldn’t handle.

For some time now, I’ve been pretty happy with the aerators we’ve offered in our online store.  Most notable are the small pond systems which cover ponds a bit bigger than three to four thousand gallons.  This includes the Koi Air 1 and Koi Air 2 models which are rated up to 8,000 and 16,000 gallons respectively.

But there was one issue with both of these units and to me it stood out like a sore thumb.  They only work up to a depth of about 4 feet.  This isn’t a huge issue necessarily because many ponds would still fall into this range, but a fair number did not.  So we really needed to find something that would handle the greater depth, and with the PRO 60 we’ve done just that.
