Robust Aire Diffused Aeration for Ponds 
Effective, invisible management of large ponds and lakes

Diffused aeration is an effective method of aeration for ponds with depths greater than 8 feet. By using compressed air injected directly into the bottom of pond, a continuous flow of water is moved upward and thousands of gallons of water are mixed with little expended energy.

A Robust-Aire™energy efficient compressor injects air to the bottom of your pond. The diffuser breaks up the air into micro bubbles which rise to the surface. The rising of the air bubbles creates current which transfers low-oxygen water to the surface, allows it to contact the atmosphere, and breathe. Temperature layers are disrupted and fish are able to inhabit the entire water column. Oxygen levels increase and harmful gases in the pond water are expelled.

There is no disruption of the serenity of your pond setting, just the assurance that it is getting the oxygen that it needs.   Ask us about our complete line of pond water quality solutions from Kasco Marine.

Irrigation Water Audits Identify Upgrades for Lower Water Bills
Don't ignore this business opportunity

auditAs property owners and managers look for ways to cut back on monthly expenses, many are looking for ways to save on their irrigation water bills.  
More than 75% of the buildings in the United States were built 20 years ago and present a huge opportunity for systems enhancement.  Depending on location, landscape irrigation can use up to 40% of the water consumed by a site.
Understanding the opportunities for a more efficient system begins with a water audit.  The purpose of an audit is to determine how much water is being used in landscape irrigation and how efficiently (or inefficiently) it is being applied.
auditConducting an audit is not a simple task, and requires training to be done effectively.   It's not as easy as verifying that the equipment is working properly.  Calculations also need to be performed to determine the actual water usage versus what is a recommended usage based on local conditions. 
A good audit will examine the system equipment (sprinklers, emitters, controls, pressure regulators, pump, etc.) plus it will include measurable performance testing of the system's overall efficiency.  The auditor supplies the property owner with detailed results and recommendations on how to achieve greater water efficiency.  
It's a worthwhile investment that can lead to significant savings.   In the years ahead, water audits are likely to be commonplace throughout our industry.   Get familiar with the process, get certified and get ahead of the competition!
