Everything done at PondLift is rooted in the hypothesis offered within WISE technology.

The WISE concept most easily explains the equipment’s simple function, yet why it is profoundly effective in its performance.  The WISE acronym details the hypothesis of an upward current inducing a widespreading outward flow when reaching the surface.

Only after identifying the flow patters of other successful floating equipment could the WISE hypothesis be established.  After consideration and further analysis , PondLift staff created designs for maximizing performance while minimizing energy use.   After the WISE technology process was created, PondLift developed these goals:

1.) maximize WISE performance while minimizing energy use,

2.) create the flow in a manner which would minimize stringy material from wrapping on the propulsion system,

3.) minimize the bulkiness/weight of the equipment,

4.) use long lasting parts/pieces within the assembly, allowing long life expectancy,

5.) allow equipment performance in almost any installation situation.


Further, the operational performance goals identified include:

1.) Have the ability to vary the operational depth by varying the propeller speed,

2.) Be able to operate without insisting on VFD use (allow full speed operation for dairies which don’t allow VFDs on site)

3.)  Fully treat (decompose) wastes at the proposed design rate submitted to NRCS in recent Study matter. (One device per 100 animal units)

4.) Be able to operate on single phase power, or 3 phase power, ranging from 220v to 480v.

5.) Have an exceptional warranty to reflect the high performance and quality of material implemented.

6.) Truly perform decomposition and odor control in almost any installation environment.

The design and construction of PondLift’s StinkSTOPpers and Smlifts reaches, meets, and exceeds these goals.
