A Water Blaster is exactly what its name suggests, in that it uses regulated compressed air to produce individual short small bursts of water that shoot into the air. The top of each blaster is designed to sit just above the waters’ surface to keep them mostly hidden. The blast can shoot water at tall or short heights. Delta can program them to spray at random intervals or to be controlled manually.
The primary function of these blasters is to disrupt the water to discourage birds and other wildlife from making your fountain or pond their home. Continually random disturbances along the water’s surface makes your water feature an undesired location for birds to frequent, thus reducing excess filth and unstable water chemical levels that ducks and geese are prone to cause.
The filth left by wildlife can be extremely destructive to your pond’s chemical and mechanical operations. Water Blasters have been extremely useful tools to deter birds from swimming in our clients’ ponds. The blasters’ fowl connection has given them the facetiously nickname, Duck Butt Blasters, though no wildlife have ever been harmed from their use. Johnson Controls is one of the first and most referenced case studies for this product.
