The Font`N-Aire Ready 1HP fountain line has four major components:Float, Power Drive Assembly, Electrical Service Cable Assembly, Controls

This is a pre order item. We will ship it when it comes in stock.

The Font`N-Aire Ready 1HP fountain line has four major components:

FLOAT – constructed of rugged polyethylene molded plastic with UV inhibitors and filled with nonhygroscopic pressure molded polystyrene foam.

POWER DRIVE ASSEMBLY – mounting structure (drive structure assembly), pump/propeller, nozzle and motor.

The ELECTRICAL SERVICE CABLE ASSEMBLY includes a 100’ length of AWG# 12/4 submersible cable and a convenient submersible quick disconnect connector for plugging into the fountain.

The CONTROLS consist of a 24-hour time clock with off/on trippers, a Franklin Electric start and run QD capacitor box, and an inline ELCI ground fault protector. These components come prewired and mounted on a 16” x 14” plate. Air-O-Lator uses the Franklin Electric 600M submersible motor exclusively for all fountain lines. This motor is water-cooled, lubricated, and designed for lake and pond applications, ensuring environmental safety.

The CENTRIFUGAL PUMP DISPLAY FOUNTAIN has a unique center discharge pump design. It keeps the shaft and discharge vertical, concentrating the fountain’s weight in the float’s center. This design makes installation and removal easy without special brackets or hardware.

Furthermore, our centrifugal pump design produces high pressure. It creates impressive heights and displays while using less horsepower than other fountains. However, it’s important to note that this fountain is purely for aesthetics. The volume of water pumped into the air is not enough for oxygen transfer and doesn’t meet Air-O-Lator’s standards.

The CENTRIFUGAL PUMP DISPLAY FOUNTAIN’s unique center discharge pump design keeps the shaft of the submersible motor and the discharge in a vertical position. This allows the entire weight of the fountain to remain in the center of the float. This also makes the fountain easy to install and remove from the float without special mounting brackets or hardware. Our centrifugal pump design produces high pressure, which creates terrific heights and displays using far less horsepower compared to other fountain equipment. This fountain should only be used for aesthetics because the volume of water being pumped into the air is not enough to be considered an aerating device by oxygen transfer testing and Outdoor Water Solutions standards.

A floating pond fountain is a beautiful addition to any pond. However, did you know that not all floating fountains are made the same? In other words, you have to choose a floating fountain that will work for your type of pond, lake, or any other water feature. Fountains can be made to aerate your waters or can also work as a simple compliment to your pond. You’ll be able to find a range of sizes and aeration power to accommodate the layout of your pond.

 

  • Full industry leading 4 year warranty on the pump and motor
  • 3 year warranty on the floats and power cables
  • 2 year warranty on the control panels and lights

 

  • Q: How do I choose a fountain?
  • A: This is a loaded question, and the most common one that we get. Our first question would be: is the goal aeration, aesthetics or both? If the goal is aeration or both, we recommend checking out one of our Aerating Fountains. These have a much higher flow rate than our aesthetic fountains and will circulate a larger volume of water. If the goal is aesthetics, there are many different options to discuss. A lot of this will be largely up to you, and what you want it to look like. The biggest things you want to determine are first, that your pond meets the minimum depth requirements and second that the display size isn’t too large for it. We have display dimensions on all fountain product pages.

 

  • Q: If I want to buy a fountain, how do I choose the horsepower?
  • A: The horsepower is simply the size of the motor which will determine the size of the spray pattern. You will want to make sure that your pond meets the minimum depth requirements for whatever horsepower you choose, and ensure that the spray won’t be splashing the sides of the pond. Generally, if your pond is a quarter acre or larger, you can fit any of the fountains that we carry (depending on the shape of the pond). The horsepower you choose will depend on how big you want it to look and the budget that you’re working with. 

 

  • Q: Do I need to hire someone to install my fountain?
  • A: If you do not already have a power source installed by the pond, we strongly advise consulting a licensed electrician to install the power source. Once the power source is installed, installation of our fountains is pretty straightforward. All of our fountains simply float in the middle of the pond, are anchored on two sides by nylon rope and cinder blocks, and plug in via submersible cord to the power source on the edge of the pond. We have many customers that choose to install their own fountains and save money on installation. This of course depends on the resources available to you.

 

  • Q: How do I choose between 110-120V and 220-240V?
  • A: A good rule of thumb is: If the power source at the edge of your pond is more than 70 feet from your main breaker, choose 210-240V. You will of course need to ensure that your power source is equipped to accommodate the higher voltage. This will ensure that your fountain gets ample power in order to run consistently. If you choose the lower voltage and the pond is too far away from the main breaker, your fountain will run intermittently, will shut off immediately after turning it on or will not display to its fullest size. Please call us with any questions.

 

  • Q: Are lights automatically included?
  • A: Lights are not automatically included. They can be purchased at the same time as your fountain or at a later date. They simply snap on to the floating unit. They are well worth it.

 

  • Q: Why is the power cord so expensive?
  • A: This is largely dictated by the cost of materials. Depending on the make of your fountain, the power cord is made of 14-gauge copper or stainless steel wire, all the way down to 4-gauge copper or stainless steel wire (depending on the size of the fountain and length of power cord).

 

  • Q: Can my fountain be left in the water during the winter?
  • A: Only Scott Aerator Fountains are built to operate through the winter. They should either be run continuously or shut off entirely for winter months. Once the water thaws, simply turn them back on.
