We are often asked about safety measures for dock bubblers. Arbrux Limited recommends that precautions be taken around open water and thin ice. Please install appropriate signage, lights, fencing, or other safety notices or devices to inform the general public of any potential danger. Please be aware that alternate safety measures may be required by [...]
Unfortunately, de-icing is not an exact science as every body of water is different. If you’ve already tried different mounting depths and locations without success, then additional dock bubblers may be necessary to achieve the desired amount of ice-free area.
The sling method is the most stable way to mount your dock bubbler. It involves having both ropes fastened to the dock or boathouse about 5 to 8 feet apart. They can be tied off to cleats that you already have on the dock.
The following formula can be used to figure out power cost for your area. Cost per hour= Kilowatts x cost per kilowatt/ hour. Example: If your bubbler consumes 0.91Kw and you pay 5 cents per kilowatt/ hour then the cost per hour would be 0.91×0.05=4.55 cents per hour or if run for a full 24 [...]
Yes, we offer optional thermostats for all our bubblers / de-icers. A thermostat temperature controller can also be installed along with a timer.

Managing debris in some ponds and lakes can be an ongoing maintenance issue. If the water body has excessive vegetation, then mechanical harvesting or chemical methods may be required in order for the fountain or aerator to work effectively. In most cases, if the debris is garbage, minor vegetation or organic matter then simply adding [...]
Arbrux manufactures pond aerators from ½HP to 3 HP, therefore its important to properly size an aeration system for your specific pond. Sizing is not an exact science since ponds vary in shape, depth and water quality, all factors to take into consideration when your are choosing the size and number of aerators required to [...]
Our customers use our floating aerators in a variety of settings, including: Golf Courses Fish or Fowl Ponds Mining Cities or Municipalities Paper or Pulp Industry Retention Ponds Conservation Parks Cemeteries Amusement Parks Residential Properties (lakes or ponds)
Floating surface aerators add oxygen into the water by first pumping it into the air with a propeller, and then disturbing the water surface as the water comes crashing back down. Due to the high volumes of water being pumped, pond aerators induce water flow and circulation over a large area of water in your [...]
