Airolator Carnival Fountain
The Carnival is an attractive aerating floating fountain suitable for use in any pond, dam or lake where a decorative method of aeration is desired. The Carnival pumps a large volume of water into the air through a specifically designed nozzle which causes the water column to shear into millions of micro droplets exposing more water to the atmosphere. As the aerated water returns to the surface, turbulence is created in a 360 degree radius outward from the fountain increasing the interface of air to water, therefore transferring the atmospheric oxygen to the water.
At the same time the water is being propelled through the atmosphere, evaporative cooling is occurring which allows the water to retain oxygen for a greater period of time. This cooler water is more dense and heavier, which displaces the warmer water that is rising toward the pond or lake surface. With mixing and aeration, turnover is continuous and prevents stratification to depths up to 4 metres. The Carnival produces a large volume of water ranging from 1400 – 4000 litres per minute depending on motor size.
The Carnival aerating fountain can be easily changed to a Diana, Northstar, Solace or Nova fountain using the centrifugal changeover kit. This unique feature is exclusive to Airolator products and allows you to change from decorative fountains to aerating fountains without the need to replace the motor, float or cable. This is valuable in situations where the water quality benefits that aeration provides are required at most times but more decorative fountains are desired for special occasions such as parties or tournaments.
