Aerator Keeps Dugout Clean and Ice-Free
"It won't blow apart in strong winds and won't freeze up in chilly, below zero weather," says Doug Cameron, inventor of the Little River Pond Mill for keeping dugout water fresh, clear and ice-free year around.
"Dugouts equipped with the Little River Pond Mill stay clean, clear, odorless, and can be used for fish farming, watering livestock, irrigation, crop spraying and general household use," notes Cameron.
The name "Little River" originates from action of the aerator's wind-driven propeller which creates a little river in the water, explains Cameron. "It brings water from lower levels to the surface where it's aerated by circulation, as in a river. Water at the bottom remains at a fairly constant temperature year around. In summer, surface water is cooled and aerated to help prevent growth of algae. In winter, warmer deep water is circulated to the surface to prevent freezing. Open water will remain clear of ice cover a distance of 14 to 60 ft., depending on wind and air temperature."
Sells for $1,795 (Canadian).
