Let’s get to know the Oase AquaOxy 450 pond aerator in our new Get To Know video series where we walk you through everything you need to know about Atlantic-Oase products!
In this video, we will be unboxing the AquaOxy 450 and showing you everything you’ll receive when you first open your box!
Let’s break it down!
This quiet, compact and powerful aerator is designed for outdoor ponds down to about 3ft deep.
On the outside of the box, you’ll find specifications for length, width, depth, cord and tubing lengths of the AquaOxy 450.
Inside the box, you’ll find:
- Warranty information
- Safety information
- AquaOxy aerator
The manual goes over what’s included, recommended installation, startup and operating instructions and maintenance procedures.
Unlike many other aerators, the Oase AquaOxy 450 runs off of a 12 volt transformer so, it’s safe to use around the pond.
Both the aerator and transformer are outdoor rated; there’s a 6’ cord on each, allowing the unit to be placed a little more than 12’ from a GFI-equipped outlet. The dual diaphragm, dual outlet aerator comes equipped with stainless steel adjustment valves on each outlet.
The two spherical diffusers come with thin black air lines each 15’ long that will be easy to conceal. Cut off any excess length in your application to maximize airflow.
The optimal depth to set the diffusers recommended in the manual is 12”, but the box confirms the air will shut off at a depth of 4.3’. It can be used to keep an area of the water surface free of ice in colder climates, with the diffusers set just below the expected ice depth.
The aerator is rated for year-round use, circulating the water at the bottom of the pond during warm weather.
