Otterbine Aerating Fountain 2 HP

Otterbine Aerating Fountain 2 HP

Otterbine Aerating Fountains should not be confused with ordinary floating fountains. These surface spray aerators are engineered to provide results and although they create attractive displays, selection should be based off their performance when desiring the benefits of aeration. Offering both function and beauty these units operate in as little as 30in or 75cm of water and all of the spray patterns are interchangeable. These units are protected by an all-inclusive 5-year warranty that covers the fountain unit, control panel and power cable(s).

What is included with an Otterbine Aerating Fountain?

Oil-Cooled Motor is custom built, constructed of an 18 gauge/316 grade stainless steel motor housing, and a g-type seal for durability and longevity.  The heavy-duty 2 horsepower fountain pump motor is mounted to the foam filled float. 

Impeller is dynamically balanced and die cast from type 304 stainless steel. The impeller is secured to the motor with 304 stainless steel bolt and set screw

Float is constructed of a seamless, single-piece high-density polyethylene plastic which is filled with high density closed cell polyurethane foam. The foam prevents the float from sinking if the outer shell were to ever crack or get punctured. Float has built-in pockets for light fixtures. Handles are also built-in to float for easy handling.  Attachment points for the optional light kit for nighttime illumination are located on the perimeter of the floating fountain.

Power cable is type SOOW rated for underwater use. Wires are triple insulated to protect from moisture, cracking, or softening. All underwater connections are watertight.  Quick-Connect attachments at the fountain and shoreline allow for easy installation and maintenance.  

Power Control Center includes surge arrestor, digital timer, photocell, and Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) for safety.  Use the digital time to control the hours of fountain operation.  The photocell operates the optional light kit from dusk to dawn.
