Pond Aeration Systems and Lake Fountains

Aeration for ponds, lakes, canals, marinas or reservoirs

Dissolved oxygen is the most critical indicator of a pond’s health and water quality.

Dissolved oxygen levels are dependent on the physical, chemical and biochemical activities prevailing in the water body. 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.

When the oxygen is used up faster than it is produced, problems can occur:

  • Oxidation of organic wastes slows down increasing bottom muck
  • Anaerobic bacteria continue to breakdown organic materials, creating toxic gasses such as hydrogen sulfide
  • Nutrients build up, increasing the growth of algae. Many of the worst algae species including the 'toxic' ones prefer high pH still-water habitats
  • Fish cannot breathe, resulting in stress and possible mass fish kills
  • The water becomes stratified with temperature differences between the top and bottom levels further reducing oxygen at the lower levels

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.
