The Gusher Display Fountain
Easily install and enjoy your very own geyser with the Gusher Fountain from Scott Aerator! The Gusher Fountain creates an eye-popping vertical column of water in a dense, cascading, wind-resistant pattern. The stream from the Gusher spouts an impressive 15 to 50 feet depending on the Horsepower you choose. The Gusher is a perfect choice for creating a full, dynamic, constantly changing pattern.
This frothy, highly aerated stream is not only aesthetically pleasing, it also maintains water clarity in your pond or lake at the same time. By adding oxygen to your water, the Gusher assists in promoting a healthy aquatic environment, and it helps facilitate the natural breakdown of decaying vegetation. The rapid water movement generated by the Gusher helps inhibit mosquito breeding and assists in keeping water sparkling clean.

We strive to help you find the perfect fit for your pond or lake.
The information below is designed to help you make an informed decision when choosing your fountain.
We strongly advise reading through this guide thoroughly to find the best match for your pond's size and needs.
If you can't find what you're looking for, feel free to give us a call.
How To Choose Horsepower
The horsepower of your fountain will affect its spray size and flow rate.
Higher horsepower moves more water volume, resulting in a larger spray size.
Ultimately your choice will be dependent upon the size of your pond and the budget you have to work with.
It is advised that you allow enough room between the edge of your pond and your fountains spray. Around 10 FT is a good distance.
How To Choose Voltage
115V: If you're running 115V power to the edge of your pond, you will need to take note of the distance from the pump to the breaker (power cord included).
Use the graph below to figure out the maximum distance.
230V: If you are running 230V power, distance is normally not of any concern.
115V Pump - Maximum Distance Chart
|HP||(115V) - Pump To Breaker MAX Distance|
|1/3 HP - 115V||280 FT|
|1/2 HP - 115V||250 FT|
|3/4 HP - 115V||200 FT|
|1 HP - 115V||150 FT|
How To Choose Fountain Lights - Optional
Fountain lights are a wonderful addition to increase the aesthetics of your display. You may purchase them right away, or add them later if desired. Installation is simple as they just screw on to the fountain float.
The lights run on 110V power and come with their own dedicated power cord.
Both Warm Glow LED's and Color Changing LED's come with a programmable timer.
The Color Changing LED's come with a remote that operates up to 1,000 FT away!
Which Light Set To Choose
1 HP and less | 2-Light Set is recommended.
1.5 HP - 2 HP | 3-Light Set is recommended.
3 HP and above | 4-Light Set is recommended.
How To Choose A Timer - Optional
Timers are optional and may be purchased now or added later. They are a great way to save energy by keeping your fountain on a schedule.
Please note - The pump timers are made to control fountains only, they do not control lights.
