Maintenance & Winterization

Maintenance

Otterbine High Volume units require minimal maintenance, to insure years of dependable service we recommend the following:

  • 1

    Once a year: Disconnect unit from power and physically inspect aerator, float and electrical cable.

  • 3

    Every three years: An oil change is suggested to keep your aerator running smoothly.

Winterization

These units can remain in the water during the winter but need to run 24 hours per day to keep the unit from freezing in.
