PondHawk: Solar Powered Subsurface Pond Aeration by Linda Parker


Sometimes our biggest challenges are found “in our own backyard,” and literally “right under our noses.” Such was the case for Craig and Sandra Burton who, in 2009, acquired a property in an established neighborhood with a pond positioned in a low-lying, gully area.


For some fi fty years, this neglected pond with negligible outfl ow had collected storm water drainage from the residential community. The result was a paucity of fi sh and wildlife, unsightly algae, a breeding ground in which mosquitos thrived and the emittance of a gas so noxious that people exposed to it complained of respiratory irritation and severe coughing.


As Craig investigated the problems of the pond, he recognized that this aquatic environment suffered from a buildup of decomposing organic material in its benthic zone, the scientifi c name for the sediment and fi rst few levels of strata on the bottom of a body of water. Historically, when a lake or pond changed from healthy to murky, defi cient in oxygen and overgrown with algae, the reaction by many people was to add chemicals.


Ironically, chemical-laden runoff water from fertilized lawns and gardens and other applications commonly accepted in residential or agricultural areas is one of the primary reasons bodies of water go stagnant. In fact, in many countries, the use of chemicals to treat algae bloom in lakes and ponds has been ruled illegal. Chemical applications may kill algae bloom, but they don’t eliminate the decomposing organic algae that fi nds its way to the bottom of a water feature, thereby exacerbating the


problem and increasing the water’s darkness, sludge and decaying material, which then feeds the next algae bloom. The Right Man for the Mission


Craig Burton’s career has focused on solar energy, specifi cally designing and building off-grid photovoltaic systems in southern Africa, South America and Southeast Asia. His engineering accomplishments include the development of a photovoltaic power supply for a camera system on the Kilauea Volcano, a solar micro-grid system for the Ulu Temburong National Park in Brunei, a mobile solar power supply for the Botswana Defense Force, a solar water pumping system in the Dominican Republic and solar lighting systems for homes in Micronesia.


As a marketing product leader for GE Energy, Craig was already well versed in strategic marketing and product positioning for the company’s on-grid residential solar appliance “Brilliance” before he became involved in the product design and launch inspired by the green and stinky pond water in his own backyard. In view of his expertise and accomplishments, it seems obvious that the algae and mosquitos in the Burton’s pond never stood a chance after Craig took on the challenge.


The result of Craig’s commitment to restore the neighborhood pond has been the development of the patented PondHawk® aeration solution, a fully integrated, solar direct, subsurface diffused aeration system that improves water quality in ponds, lakes and lagoons. Today, the neighborhood pond is free from algae overgrowth and serves as a haven for fi sh, frogs, turtles and at least


one blue heron. The PondHawk solar aeration system is manufactured and marketed by LINNE Industries, a Newark, Delaware based company that the Burtons founded in 2013.


The PondHawk Solar Aeration System


From its minimalist design to its low-impact footprint, the PondHawk is a unique subsurface water aeration product that uses solar powered aeration to increase dissolved oxygen, eliminate stratifi cation, and improve water quality and fi sh habitats. The powder-coated, tamper-resistant marine-grade steel enclosure that protects the product’s wires and tubing is designed to be positioned on a six- and-a-half-foot tall mast; however, the PondHawk can be installed at a lower height if preferred.
