Q: What are the power requirements for a 1 HP Aqua Thruster with 360 Oscillator?
A: The 1 HP Aqua Thruster with 360 Oscillator requires 110V power, and has an amp draw of 12.5 Amps. We also offer a 220V version of the 1 HP Aqua Thruster.
Q: Do you have mounting options available if I don’t want to put my Aqua Thruster on a dock?
A: Yes! We have a free standing frame that’s compatible with our Aqua Thruster motor, and if you want to utilize the 360 Oscillator, check out our 360 Bottom Frame Mount
Q: How powerful are the AquaThruster motors, really?
A: People are surprised by how powerful the motors are. Make sure to mount the system securely.
Q: At which angle should the thruster motor be pointed?
A: Slightly pointed up. This helps so that you do not dredge the lake bottom.
Q: Can I change the rotation timing and speed of the Oscillator?
A: Yes the Aqua Thruster is programmable from 0-359 degrees.
Q: Should I run the Aqua Thruster constantly, or should I limit the hours it runs each day.
A: Each lakefront owner’s situation is different, and the circumstances will dictate the hours you should operate your Aqua Thruster. Many users will operate their Aqua Thruster around the clock for a couple weeks, then reduce operating hours to a few hours each day.
Q: Should I point it out to deep water or towards shore?
A: You can do both depending on what you are using it for. Please call a sales representative for additional operational advice.
Q: How deep should I have the thruster motor?
A: At least 2-3’ of water depth, ideally 4’.
Q: How deep does it reach?
A: The pole goes down to 5’ water depth, but you can reach deeper by adjusting the angle of the motor.
Q: What size post will it fit?
A: The portable post mount bracket fits round, square, and rectangle posts up to 4” diameter.
Q: How quickly will I see results?
A: The AquaThruster will demonstrate its effectiveness on surface stagnation in minutes. Even when clearing water that has been washed into your shore, the results are shockingly fast.
Q: What time(s) of year can I use my Aqua Thruster?
A: Your Aqua Thruster can be used starting in the spring, and through the fall to the point where temperatures get close to freezing. Early season use oftentimes results in less weeds popping up in your area, and later season use helps prevent decomposing vegetation from forming a muck layer in your area. In addition, summer use helps to keep boat chop debris, algae, and duckweed from populating on your shoreline.
Q: How can I move it from one location to another quickly?
A: Our Portable Post Mount or Freestanding mounting options make it very quick and easy to relocate the Aqua Thruster. The Standard Dock Mount is the only mount that is more difficult to quickly move around because it needs to be bolted to your dock surface. We recommend purchasing an additional mount or two, plus our Quick Mount, if you need to move it around. The Quick Mount will allow you the flexibility of quickly releasing your unit from mount to mount in less than a minute.
Q: Can the AquaThruster help my specific needs and how do I know what size motor to purchase?
A: If you are unclear of what size and mounting are best for your specific needs contact us and we will assist you with the best configuration for your needs. Choosing the right size Aqua Thruster motor depends on what you're trying to accomplish, how large of an area you want clear, and how much muck, sludge, leaves or debris you have on the bottom of your lakefront. Our website contains a diagram which will give you a general idea of how the thrust power differs between each HP motor options.
Q: Can I attach it to a seawall?
A: Yes, please contact a sales representative for additional guidance.
Q: Is it portable with remote frame?
A: Yes. We offer freestanding mounting options allowing you to position wherever you like.
Q: Do I need to replace the prop?
A: Only if it breaks
Q: Do I need a GFI?
A: A GFCI is always advisable.
Q: Made in the USA?
A: Yes made in the USA.
Q: Can it be used while swimmers are present?
A: No we do not recommend using while swimmers are present.
Q: Isn’t it dangerous to operate an electric motor in the water?
A: Yes! The AquaThruster blower motors are tested by ETL to meet stringent UL and CSA standards for underwater use.
Q: What is the chain for?
A: The chain enables you to attach the power cord to the protective cage
I am disappointed that they don't have a lever like the picture shows. Mine both have hex screws and it's a pain to have to have hex wrench to loosen and lock tight all the time.
This mount worked well with my new dock.
2 of my friends have pipe mounts and I like this much better
Well made of heavy aluminum and stainless hardware. Easy to install
Best mount to use without a doubt. Easily installs on the dock truss.
