Can you see the bottom of your pond? Is your pond water clear? Are your fish healthy? Have you had any fish kills recently?
Your answer to these questions may indicate that your pond needs aeration. Keep reading to learn more about aeration, its benefits, and finally get your questions answered!
What it Does. The Science Behind Aeration
- It reduces the use of algaecide which cause copper build up in sediments and the use of herbicides for submersed floral plants, especially duckweed
- It increases oxygen. When duckweed is removed, wind can get o2 into the water and light can get to the bottom
- Reduce nutrients in the pond, muck on the bottom, and BOP. Reducing muck can reduce dredging in storm water ponds
Costs range from $3 to $50/month for a small Aeration System. They run 24/7, 7 days a week
1 to 3 months
Do Aerators Need Maintenance? Yes, every aerator needs maintenance to make sure its properly working
Should I get a Fountain or Aerator?
If fountains are the right size for a pond, they can help aerate the pond. But generally, pond aerators do a more efficient job of aeration and water quality. They use less electricity and run 24/7. Fountains are used primarily for their beauty and the soothing water sounds they emit
