Little Giant Aeration System from Frank- lin Electric Co. comes in 0.5-hp and 1-hp models designed to improve the beauty and biological health of larger bodies of water.

The Little Giant Aeration System comes as an all-in-one package that includes the float, aerator, and Franklin Elec- tric submersible motor to keep water clean. The system requires 115 volts for the 0.5-hp unit or 230 volts for the 1-hp unit and a minimum depth of 18 inches of water to operate. The aeration system can be used for decorative bodies of water, water agitation, ice prevention and mixing. The Little Giant Aeration System can quickly transform into an attractive fountain display. With the installation of your selected fountain nozzle, the system provides five spray- ing patterns: Sonata, Cantata, Concerto, Staccato and Crescendo — with average spray heights from 8 to 15 feet and average spray widths from 14 to 30 feet. During aeration, the spray pattern encompasses the unit by ap- proximately 4 to 8 feet on either side. It transfers oxygen into the body of water, 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. Visit Little Giant, www.lg-outdoor.com.
