Franklin Electric’s New Larger Little Giant® Aeration System Maximizes the Health of Bigger Bodies of Water

/EIN News/ -- FORT WAYNE, Ind., March 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Franklin Electric Co., Inc. (NASDAQ:FELE) now offers the Little Giant® Aeration System in both ½ and 1 horsepower models, providing multiple options for contractors to improve the beautification and biological health of larger-sized bodies of water. The new multi-functional 1 horsepower model moves up to 800 gpm to aerate up to 1 full acre of water, making unit sizing very simple. It features a 150-foot cord for added placement flexibility, while keeping its simple design without bolts or screws to minimize installation time.

The Aeration System is ready to use out of the box, coming standard as an all-in-one package that includes the float, aerator, and a proven Franklin Electric submersible motor to keep water clean and healthy. The system requires 115 Volts for the ½ horsepower unit or 230 Volts for the 1 horsepower unit, and a minimum depth of 18 inches of water to operate. In addition, the Aeration System can be used for decorative bodies of water, water agitation, ice prevention, and mixing.

One unique feature of the Aeration System is its ability to quickly transform into an attractive fountain display. An optional conversion kit includes the pump head, nozzle stem, and multiple fountain nozzles that are interchangeable between both the ½ and 1 horsepower models. With the easy installation of your selected fountain nozzle, the system provides up to five different spraying patterns – known as the Sonata, Cantata, Concerto, Staccato, and Crescendo – appealing to any aesthetic preference with average spray heights from eight to 15 feet and average spray widths from 14 to 30 feet. 

During aeration, the spray pattern encompasses the unit by approximately four to eight feet on either side. It transfers oxygen into the body of water, further improving its overall health and providing a beautiful visual effect for the landscape and everything around it. In addition, the surface tension of the water is broken, creating wave action to minimize surface insects and debris.
