Pond Aerators are typically
used in natural, or mud bottom ponds.
Decomposing plants and organic
material, release harmful gases into your pond or lakes water. These
gases remain trapped in the lower colder water of your pond, where they
consume the oxygen. This creates a anaerobic condition where beneficial
bacteria starves and algae thrives. A pond aerator or fountain will
help turn the ponds water over, increasing circulation and helping to
release these harmful gases. This will increase the overall oxygen content
in your ponds water, promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria which
consumes the food source that algae would grow on. Over time this will
help suspended solids settle and firm up the ponds bottom.
A Floating Pond Aerator with the Aspirator Pond Aeration Nozzle that operates all year is your best defense against the aforementioned problems.
pond aerator infuses surface air into the opposing streams providing much
needed circulation and aeration with significantly less energy than
using a compressed air type system. There is no above surface water
pattern produced when you use the underwater aspirator nozzle. The opposing
streams project out from below the floatation device, carrying the entrapped
oxygen twenty plus feet from the center. This forty plus feet of oxygenated
water is then drawn down toward the intake, which is located toward
the bottom of your pond.
