BriteStar Battery-Free Solar Aeration

BriteStar Solar Aeration Ad Photo

Vertex Water Features new lines of affordable, battery-free, high efficiency solar aerators are an environmentally and financially responsible solution for your pond or lake aeration needs.

Our economical break-through solar technology provides more aeration at both a lower purchase price and lower long term maintenance costs.

Battery-Free Engineering Saves Time and Money

Batteries are an expensive component of existing systems, they require charge controllers, transformers and a time clock to work and all of those parts have high replacement costs. BriteStar battery-free solar aeration systems cost about HALF as much as battery run systems and have a MUCH LOWER cost of ownership over the life of the system.
