Aeration System Sales, Service, Design, and Installation

Why should you aerate your pond?

Aeration is becoming more popular and we like to discuss with our customers the importance of pond aeration. Diffused aeration involves diffusing oxygen into the water below the surface, benefits the quality and health of the pond. Aeration mixes the water in the pond so that the buildup of toxic gasses are efficiently released and healthy oxygen replaces it. Adding an aeration system in your pond will help with water clarity, water quality, help prevent fish kill, and help reduce muck to ultimately provide a balanced ecosystem. 

Blue Water Aquatics can design custom aeration systems to allow for a wider range of options when considering a new aeration system. We work closely with Airmax to provide the most state-of-the-art systems for a healthier ecosystem. A properly sized system can restore the ecosystem, adding oxygen to the water throughout the water column. This helps combat issues that commonly occur in lakes and ponds including algae, poor water clarity, fish kills, and bottom muck. Preventing these issues will help restore a healthy, better quality ecosystem including 5 reasons to aerate that are listed below:

5 Reasons To Aerate

Reduces Muck

Not only is muck unpleasant to see or feel between your toes, but it can also give your pond a bad odor and provide habitat for leeches. Aeration combats muck and by increasing the dissolved oxygen and circulating the water, encouraging the colonization of beneficial aerobic bacteria that can consume, reduce and prevent muck build-up.

Boosts Dissolved Oxygen Levels

Without oxygen, your pond will go into an anaerobic state. Anaerobic bacteria are not as efficient at breaking down organic material as their aerobic counterparts and produce gas, giving the pond a rotten egg smell. Incorporating aeration into the pond increases the amount of dissolved oxygen in the water, keeping your pond functioning as an aerobic system.

Improves Water Quality

Muck accumulates not only in the bottom of the pond but can also be suspended throughout the water body giving your pond a murky appearance. By reducing muck and excess nutrients, increasing oxygen, and circulating the water, you will improve your water quality and clarity.

Eliminates The Thermocline

Aeration circulates and mixes water to eliminate stratified layers of warmer, surface water and the colder, deeper water, to create an oxygen rich environment throughout your pond.

Protects Fish

Harmful gas is often trapped under ice when your pond freezes or is brought up from your pond's bottom during spring and fall turnover. If enough oxygen is displaced your fish will suffocate. Aeration assists in the release of gas leaving more oxygen available for your fish.
