The Reliant Model WQA Aeration System is not just an aerator, but it is a water mover with the ability to deliver large amounts of dissolved oxygen (DO) using a minimum of energy.
The Reliant Model WQA Aeration System is not just an aerator, but it is a water mover with the ability to deliver large amounts of dissolved oxygen (DO) using a minimum of energy. When compared to standard paddlewheel, or brush, aerators the WQA is more efficient, less costly to operate and requires less maintenance.
The WQA is a two-phase system which utilizes two 1.5HP regenerative blowers. Phase 1 is the destratification phase which runs continuously, pushing every drop of water in the pond continuously. Moving the water destratifies the pond, eliminating the zero DO dead zone on the bottom of the pond. Phase 2 is a second blower that can be either manually or automatically initiated to provide DO at a rate which exceeds a standard paddlewheel aerator.
The use of this new Water Quality Aeration system will provide pond raised fish better overall water quality, the elimination of a zero-oxygen deadzone on the bottom of the pond, a healthy flow within which to swim, and more readily available dissolved oxygen. One 8’ WQA should be used for every 8 acres of surface water. When positioned at an angle diagonal to the bank, the WQA will quickly begin to cause a circular flow around the pond—moving over 9 million gallons of water in a 24 hour period.
