Should you add a second panel?

The SD-2 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.

    Works awesome!

    Very well made. Very easy to install. Works excellent. With 1 solar panel I was impressed. My pond needed attention so I added another one for the extended run time. I was skeptical at first but definitely exceeded my expectations.
    Thank you for a great experience!

    2 Years now - and still rock-solid.

    Posted by SO-TEX_fishguy on 30th Apr 2020

    My wife and I own some property in South Tx with several ponds. After multiple fish-kill experiences, we decided to install aeration. There is no power anywhere near our ponds, so we needed to look at a solar option.

    We looked around the web extensively and chose to purchase a unit from Outdoor Water Solutions. Our decision was based mostly on price as we did not know too much about solar. That turned out be a Texas-size mistake. We had multiple compressor failures and had to replace the control box twice. Even installing the thing was a pain. The solar mounting part did not fit very good at all and we had to drill out holes to get the bolts to go in. The thing was also very loud. It finally died again and we decided not to mess with it any more. We didnt think that we would even try solar again.

    A friend of ours suggested that we take a look at this model from US Solar. It was more expensive, but it turned out to be a great choice.

    Here is what we have learned after 1 year+
    1. It was super easy to put together. Everything fit together perfect. We did have to find a pole locally. Install took about 4 hours.

    2. We got the extra solar panel for cloudy days. It does run very well and, like they say, it does run when its cloudy and raining.

    3. It is very, very nicely built. Everything fits well and is finished all around.

    4. It is half the size of the Outdoor Water Solutions one that we tried first and is much, much, much quieter and smoother-running.

    5. The diffusers are very nice and well built. No cheap parts at all.

    6. We had a terrible wind storm last year that destroyed several things on our property, but the solar mount stood proud with no problems.

    In 2 years+, we have not had a single problem with this solar aerator. All we do is check the filter every few months.

    The bottom line: If you are going to use a solar aerator, dont get a cheap one. You will pay over and over for it.

    Back when we ordered it, the company (US Solar) shipped in less than 24 hours.

    We recommend this unit and this company highly!!
