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.

    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
