Q & A
The main reasons are:
1. The check valves in the canister are not closing properly.
2. The diaphragm is old and may have holes and cracks.
3. Leak in airline between windmill and pond – look for chew marks or hissing air.
4. The air stone check valve is old and plugged.
5. Bearings are worn out and have too much play.
The most common reason is that the bearings are old and need to be replaced. If this is the case, see instructions below on how to tie off a windmill and contact Pond Perfections for Service.
“Tie off a windmill” is the way to stop the blades from rotating, stopping windmill aeration to your pond while still allowing the windmill to pivot with wind direction.
Ensure you use a strong rope (3/8- or 1/2-inch nylon). Do not tie the blades to the tower with a rope because it will likely cut the rope or bend the blades.
If you want to stop pond aerating in the winter, install a valve on the windmill, which will stop any air pressure going to the pond.
