If you have a site that collects wastewater, treatment is important to remove solids and contaminants. It can then be reused in a safe manner. Surface aerators are one of the better systems to use for wastewater treatment. Here are a few reasons why. 

Simple to Install

Even if you think a surface aerator sounds like a complex solution for wastewater treatment, it's actually very easy to set up. It doesn't require any type of mount or special hardware to set up. The reason for this is that it floats on your wastewater's surface.

After you choose a suitable location — ideally near a power source — you'll simply anchor the surface aerator with nylon rope. As long as it remains level, it will perform great and give you an effective way to treat wastewater from here on out.

Can Last a Long Time

The environment where you plan to treat wastewater is probably rugged. You thus need an aeration system that can withstand a lot, so you can get many years out of the system and save money on repair bills. Fortunately, surface aerators are quite durable.

You can find models made from stainless steel, a material that can resist rust and structural problems for a long time. Regardless of what type of contaminants are found in your site's wastewater, a steel surface aerator will have no trouble remaining in great condition.

Power Efficient

In order for an aeration system to be effective with wastewater treatment, it must remain running the entire time. You might be worried about how much you'll spend to keep said system operational on a consistent basis. You can set aside your worries when you go with a surface aerator.

That's because it comes equipped with an efficient electric motor. Even if it stays running day and night, your power bills for the surface aeration system won't be too much. You can still get some decent horsepower from the system too, which is needed if you plan to treat a lot of wastewater around your worksite.

Wastewater won't create hazardous conditions around your site if you find a way to oxygenate it and subsequently treat its contaminants and solids. A surface aerator is one of the best machines for wastewater treatment. Not only is it lightweight and super easy to set up, but it also can treat large volumes of wastewater in an effective manner.
