Air-O-Lator recently revealed its latest addition to its extensive line of Font’ N-Aire fountains. The Nu-Wave decorative floating fountain system is designed for applications where electrical power entering the water is prohibited or not desired. This fountain is designed to operate without an electrical motor or wire in the water. It can also run in shallow water conditions in as little as nine inches of water depth.
The Nu-Wave is designed with very shallow applications in mind. Water is pumped from the body of water through a centrifugal pump and then back to the fountain through a minimum two-inch flexible hose. The Nu-Wave has no moving parts that can become fouled from debris, so there’s no need for electricity to enter the body of water and thereby no possibility of clogging.
This new fountain system opens many possibilities not previously offered in Air-O-Lator’s high-performing fountain line. The Nu-Wave is perfect for very shallow irrigation ponds, stormwater retention ponds, ponds with heavy debris, swimming areas, or any application where electricity entering the water is prohibited or not desired.
The Nu-Wave fountain consists of a float, a mounting disc, a two-inch hose adaptor, a water plenum and one of Air-O-Lator’s standard five decorative nozzles ($750.00 list-price). The design incorporates a transfer pump located outside of the body of water. The pump will pull water from the pond/lake and then pump it back through a flexible hose connected to the fountain providing the spray pattern of their choice. Customers can choose from a Diana, Galaxy, NorthStar, Nova, or Solace nozzle and can use their pump and hoses or purchase Air-O-Lator’s optional accessories to complete their fountain system.
