The Air Pump Solar Oxygenator Plus works during at night (when plants are consuming, not producing oxygen) to help keep your ponds thriving with a steady source of critical oxygen!
With a 52 gallons per hour (GPH) flow capacity, it's great for small or medium sized with up to 800 gallons of water. Larger ponds may require 2 or more Oxygenator Plus.

It's great for replacing oxygen depleted by plants, fish and aquatic animals, as well as decaying organic matter such as leaves, pollen, etc. Oxygen levels can also go out of whack if there is too much, or not enough, sun.
Unlike the Air Pump Solar Oxygenator, which only works during the day, the Plus unit has a rechargeable battery that stores energy during the day and then runs at night, when oxygen often is most needed.
The pump works directly off of the solar panel by day while also storing back-up power in the batteries so that you can add oxygen at night or during cloudy weather. (Photosynthesis naturally adds oxygen to water gardens, but this only occurs during daylight.)
The Oxygenator Plus by day works directly off of the solar panel while it also stores energy in a battery that lets you use the oxygen pump at night or during cloudy weather. If you need or want the pump to work at night, just flip a switch!
Solar power means that you don't have to worry about any disruptive, expensive digging to install potentially dangerous electrical power.
The solar panel that creates free energy from the sun to aerate your pond at night is connector to the oxygenator by a 10-foot cord, so you have the flexibility to place the solar panel in a sunny area, and the two oxygen supplying tubes 10 feet away.
Flexibility also means you can easily move the pump during different seasons to where you need the oxygen most and where the sun is strongest and easily take the entire unit inside if your pond completely freezes during the winter.
The Air Pump Solar Oxygen Plus stores free, eco-friendly solar energy by day and then provides oxygen to your pond each night for up to six hours. Oxygen is supplied via four 6.5-foot tubes that you can place and anchor and in your pond with 4 "air stones."
