Attention Mr. Tom Watkins
The above concept uses two 5 HP CLEAN-FLO
Large Compressor Cabinets with 6 outlets each. Seven trunk lines will
extend to the midpoint of three Vertex XLP 2.5(minimum CFM) AirStations without
control valves between the three of them. Therefore each three units
within the group will need to be within about 1 or 2 feet of the same depth.
If the 62 acres averaged 15 feet deep, it would hold 303 million gallons. Divide that by 350,000 gallons, the hot tank would turn over every 865 minutes, or 14.5 hours. In a normal lake, that would bring oxygen all the way to the bottom. Let's start from there and see where this goes.
Wildly Estimated 5/8" I.D. trunk line length = 7,000 feet
This is a fast look at what you need to do to oxygenate the water leaving the first stage of the hot water area. We recommend doing the same process in the second stage and you should consider aerating even more of the lake. If there is a potable public water use from this lake, it should be aerated to eliminate algae laden with manganese and iron to reduce the cost of water treatment.
Thank you for your consideration of this idea to eliminate fish kills in your lake and improving the quality of water in your reservoir.
