Crystal Clear Water Starts Here: Vertex Air 1 XL2 Pond and Lake Aeration System

The Vertex Air1 XL2 pond aerator is a super-efficient, affordable and safe system. In a typical pond, an Air1 XL2 can aerate approximately 1-2 acres depending on shape, slope, oxygen demand and other factors. A 1/3hp (0.25kW) Brookwood SafeStart compressor, housed in our rustproof aluminum outdoor cabinet, feeds a bottom mounted CoActive AirStation utilizing Vertex's MicronBubble technology.

The rising force of millions of bubbles circulates the entire water column, entraining bottom water up to the surface allowing vital oxygen to be absorbed and poisonous gasses expelled.

  • Circulates up to 5,100 GPM (gallons per minute)
  • High pumping rate easily penetrates stratification layers
  • Promotes beneficial bacteria growth
  • Prevents low oxygen fish kills
  • Reduces nutrient levels and associated algae growth
  • Oxidizes/reduces bottom muck
  • Expands oxygenated habitat for improved fisheries 
  • Reduces aquatic midge and mosquito insect hatches
  • Eliminates foul odors from undesirable dissolved gases

Vertex - Optional Sound Kits

Sound Kits (Optional)

Normal conversation is in the 60-70 decibel range – the same as our cabinets without sound kits. But when they have to be placed by patios, under bedroom windows or in community gathering areas, the noise just seems louder.

The Vertex Sound Kit consists of a Muffler Box, Sound Insulation and a Quiet Filter. This option is available for all sizes of Vertex QuietAir™ Cabinets.
