Should you add a second panel?

The SD-1 package ships with a single 60-Cell solar panel.  This panel provides approximately 2x the power required by the compressor for full-speed operation under even moderate lighting conditions.  Many (if not most) customers choose to add a 2nd module to SD-1 & SD-2 systems that must operate during periods of very low light and/or possible snow cover.  The additional panel will not change the operation of the compressor on a sunny day, but extends the run time quite dramatically during times of low light and cloudy weather.  Adding a 2nd panel will allow an SD-1 or SD-2 aerator to run very well during very dark, overcast conditions - even during rain or snowfall. 

Customer supplies a 3" (3.5" OD) SCH40/SCH80 steel mounting pole.

DO NOT use Plastic Pipe/Tube.

    Excellent product, well built. Easy to assemble. May need a screen over the fan intake to stop wasps and the such. Time will tell.

    Really works great!

    I have a three year old 17 ft. deep 1 acre trout pond. Last year it was 3/4 covered with algae. I spoke to the company which was very helpful and installed their system last summer. It cleared up the algae and this year we have an algae free pond!

    Impressive company

    Posted by Lynn Hughes on 4th Jan 2022

    This was the most impressive company I have ever worked with. I have been in the construction business for 40 years and have worked with countless companies. Eric was very professional and urged me to call him directly with any questions or concerns I may have during the whole process. The shipping crate alone told me I was dealing with a company that really cared about workmanship, being American made, and keeping the customer number 1. All of the components were quality, heavy duty and very easily assembled with simple, detailed instructions. The solar kit works awesome! I would highly recommend this company for their pond aeration systems and any other products they may sell. Thanks for everything.

    SD-1 system

    Posted by Russell on 22nd Oct 2021

    I purchased an SD-1 system after speaking to customer service and getting a few questions answered. Customer service was very good and quickly answered all my questions. I ordered on line on a Thursday and my system arrived (Texas) on the following Tuesday! Wow what a great packing job. Everything arrived undamaged and complete. The components are really well made and of excellent quality. This system is made to last. Installation was easy and all components fit perfectly together. The only addition I added was bug screens over the ventilation openings because we have dirt dobber wasps in the south that invade any openings to nest. All metal components are high quality and hardware is very good stainless components. Installation was quick and the system worked immediately when in the sun. The air stone and weighted line are good quality and made to last. Service appears to be easy on all components and access to service is easy as well. This system is made to last for years and I highly recommend this product on all three accounts. Quality, speed of delivery and ease of installation.

    Excellent product from a great company!

    Posted by Jerry Skoda on 14th Aug 2021

    I purchased an SLA-SD1 Solar Pond Aerator a month ago. I spoke to the service rep before I purchased ; he was very helpful and answered every question. My pond is a 1.5 acres, 17ft deep 3 year old trout pond. It gets a lot of fertility runoff and was half covered with algae. We bought an algae rake but could not keep ahead of it. The aerator was carefully packaged and the instructions were excellent. We started operating 2 weeks ago; the pond is clear of algae and the trout are happy (and so is my wife!). I would give this company 6 stars for their equipment and service!!! Best Regards, Gerald J. Skoda Woodbourne, NY
