The Admiral Fountain is a heavy duty, commercial-grade fountain that features a powerful 1 Horsepower motor as well as 100 feet of marine-grade power cord – all standard equipment. Like everything else that we build here at Admiral Lake and Pond Restoration, our Admiral fountains are hand-assembled here in Excelsior, MN, one unit at a time. The utmost care is used during each build, with 316-grade stainless steel hardware and quality components used throughout to ensure the best product possible.
Motors: In an effort to maximize profits, manufacturers often specify under-sized, under-powered motors. Result – they short out. Our hefty 1-horsepower motors, with automatic, thermal shut-down protection, are guaranteed for two years. If it burns out, you get a new one. Beyond our motors’ quality, they are also oil-free, meaning zero maintenance as well as an eco-friendly option (no potential oil leaks = fish friendly).
Flotation: All other manufacturers use fountain floats that are either made via the roto- or blow-molding process that yields a poly shell, often filled with flotation foam. Almost always, the shell eventually leaks somewhere, the fountain becomes water-logged and lists to one side, or even sinks! Admiral, however, uses a patented, air-infused, solid polymer float that is practically indestructible. Drill multiple holes completely through the float and it’s buoyancy won’t be compromised in the least. We are so confident in it’s durability that we offer a lifetime warranty on it. Also, due to the unique, compact design of the float, the fountain does not sway as much as competitor’s floats; this results in a much more “contained” spray from the fountain, even in turbulent water.
Lighting (sold separately): If you are thinking you may want to add our lighting kit to your fountain (if so, it is best to do so up front because if you decide to add it later, you’ll need to send the fountain back to us), consider this – many manufacturers supply under-powered lights and/or offer them in a single, white light. If you happen to want the option of colored lighting, you have to physically retrieve the fountain and change the lens colors on the lamps. In contrast, the Admiral lighting system uses a remote to change colors with the click of a button. Under-powered lighting is also not a problem as we provide three individual 18-watt, fully submersible, color-changing RGB LED lights, each sealed in stainless steel enclosures. Using the light kits’ included wireless remote, you can turn the lights on or off (from up to 1000 feet of distance!), choose between seven different colors, and control color change progression – in fast, slow, or very slow succession. You can also set and even automate when lights turn on/off based on sunrise/sundown via the light kits’ included timer with photocell. All light kits include our 2-Year Warranty on lights and electrical assembly and our Lifetime Warranty on stainless steel and structural components.
Nozzles: Customize your experience with your choice of five different solid brass nozzles (sold separately) to choose from. Everything from the “Gentle 100” nozzle which sprays a large diameter, dense plume of tiny droplets around 7 feet in height, to the “High 6” nozzle, whose adjustable jets can spray as high as twenty feet or more.
Functionality: Apart from the inherent beauty of the fountain, it also works as an excellent lake or pond aerator, helping to clean water and provide clarity. The Admiral 1 HP Fountain is recommended to help clean and aerate lakes or ponds of up to 1 acres in size. Another advantage is that the fountain can be mounted in very shallow water. Thanks to its side intake (whereas most competitors have an intake on the bottom of the unit), the fountain becomes much more clog-resistant and allows you to place the fountain in very shallow water – so much so that the unit can even be touching the lake/pond bottom – without problem.
