Aquatic Aeration Systems and Lake Fountains
Dissolved oxygen is the most critical indicator of a pond’s health and water quality.
Oxygen is naturally added to aquatic ecosystems by aquatic plants and algae through the process of photosynthesis; and by diffusion at the water’s surface and atmosphere interface. Animal, plant and bacteria respiration deplete oxygen. Adding oxygen to your pond, lake, canal, marina or reservoir water with bottom diffused aeration can help reduce the nutrients that promote algae growth by speeding up the breakdown of organic matter at the bottom, reducing the nutrient rich muck buildup. Removing 'stratification' through aeration also balances the pH levels and ensures that fish and other organisms have the oxygen they need at all levels throughout the year.
