Should you add a second panel?

The SD-1 package comes 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 29th Jun 2020

    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!!!

    Solar Aerator 2.0

    I needed to replace a similar package (from OWS) that did the job well, but only lasted EIGHTEEN MONTHS! I was hesitant in the do-over, and asked Eric a lot of questions! I was quite impressed at the quality of this package; from the superior engineering, to quality materials, assembly, documentation, and even how well it was packaged for shipping! The folks at US Solar Mounts are a credit to the industry. The product is fantastic, and Cheeseheads ROCK!

    I installed this unit in August 2019. I wanted to see the aerator at work in all condition before I wrote a review. Here what I found over the last 5 months.

    1st -You could not ask for better customer service, they were there for questions from time of purchase to install and followed up after unit was installed.

    2 - This thing pumps a ton of air, in all weather conditions. If you look at the (other guys videos) where they are bragging how good their units are, then a cloud comes over and all aeration stops until clouds clear. NOT WITH THIS AERATOR, with its variable speed pump when heavy clouds come thru, the unit does not produce max air, but it keeps running just at a slower speed/ lower volume. This last January when we had like 2 days of sun, my pond aerator ran every day sun up to sun down.

    3 - While I realize this is not the cheapest unit on the market, you definitely get your moneys worth.

    4- On below zero night when the pond hard freezes over, the next sunrise the compressor has enough pressure to pump the air into my pond and actually cause the ice to raise up and crack open. Now that is a powerful compressor.

    5 - Installation, this is very easy. Hardest part of the install is digging the hole for the concrete.

    If youre on the fence about which unit to buy, look no further. You wont be sorry if you buy this one.
