Stratus SRC75
  • Gast SRC75
  • 3/4 HP – 115 or 230 volt
  • 6.5 CFM Open Flow
  • Dual Rocking Piston
  • 24 Hour Continuous Operation
  • Up to 30 PSI

Stratus SRC series “Gen 2” rocking piston compressors are specifically designed for the demanding job of 24 hour operation. They are ideal for pond aeration systems. The oil-less design safely aerates ponds with no electricity in the water. The shore mounted compressor sends air through tubing to a bottom mounted diffuser for a safe, effective way to aerate ponds.

Thomas 2680CE44

Thomas 2680 Kits Available
Kit Includes:  2680 Compressor, 100′ Weighted Tubing, 2 7″ Air Diffusers, Gear Clamps and Manifold

A very dependable air compressor for ponds up to 1 acre where 2-4 diffusers are needed.Runs comfortably at 4.5 CFM. and runs up to 30 psi. A 20’ deep pond uses 9.5 psi so this pump is well suited for our medium sized ponds. For degassing, water clarity or reducing sludge and odors the 2680CE44 is a very strong pump.

  • Field service capability
  • Inlet filter
  • Capacitor
  • All wetted aluminum parts treated for corrosion protection from moisture
  • Patented one piece head for fewer parts and reduced leak paths
  • UL Recognized motor and thermal protector, 115v/60Hz models
  • Gast Rotary Vane Pump
  • 1/4 HP
  • Available in 115 or 230 VAC 60 Hz
  • 4.5 CFM in ponds less then 20′ deep
  • 10 PSI Max 
  • Includes a 6′ power cord

The Gast 0523 rotary vane compressor has been used in Canadian ponds and lakes for many years, providing a high volume of air pressure for pond aeration. 

The outer air filter of this compressor has 2 built in air filters making the vanes last longer, plus the vanes can be replaced making the Gast 0523 a good long-term investment in pond aeration.  The size of the compressor fits well into a small well ventilated pump house near the waters edge. Alternatively it can be installed farther from the pond and use ½” tubing to pump air to the pond.

  • Balanced for smooth, low vibration operation
  • Intake filter
  • Six foot cord and plug assembly
  • Field service capability

Thomas 617 aeration compressor is a strong unit producing 1.22 CFM. of air for small and medium pond aeration needs. It is capable of running to 50 psi but most of our ponds are 5 to 20’ deep. This means the unit will be idling at 3 to 11 psi lasting for may years of service. Use 1 lake bottom diffuser in the middle or 2 7” air diffusers if the pond is a long rectangle in shape. Backed by an 18 month warrenty to protect you better.

House in a small pump house that is well ventilated to stay cooler in the summer months.
