Aertec developed wet installation methods for its aeration products and systems over 30 years ago. Its experienced crews are able to install new systems within operating basins and lagoons without removing them from service. Segments of the design are assembled on shore or in areas surrounding existing basins and are floated into position for connection to previously placed elements from barges. The aeration products are designed to accommodate water level connections and for lowering to the bottom of the basin.
