back to Aerating Fountains

Distant Electrical Wire gauge considerations  and other  problems to avoid
please read and follow all instructions that come with your unit
Avoid non warranty problems with proper length and sized wiring.
Your electrician should know not only the length from the electrical source to the command center but also from the  command center to the fountain / aerator plus the depth of the water, and 5 to 10 feet or more for slack, in order to know the total length involved. Also be sure your electrician knows your total watts needed for lighting. 
Cable from source to command center -
undersized wire will cause your aerator to malfunction, best to oversize this cable.
Light cable from Source 110-120 Volt,
Fountain cable from source varies depending on model 110 Volt thru
 208-230V/60 Hz, 3PH
STW (Stranded Type Water) from  command center to aerator / fountain.
measure length from command center to fountain plus water depth, add 5 to 10 feet for slack this should take care of changes in the water level. If STW cable is too short, when your aerator/fountain is turned on the action of motor will cause your unit to sink and or tip.
