Pond and Lake Aeration Tips:

Without the use of a pond aerator your pond will become stagnant and smelly not to mention the algae buildup and the stress your fish will go through. You need to move the water around and the best way to do that is with a. It mixes a high volume of water with a propeller that is attached to a motor, while giving you a decorative fountain display.

Also, oxygen enters the pond by diffusing into the water from the atmosphere. Submerged aquatic plants also produce oxygen during the day, But this is not enough, especially in the hot summer months when the water is warmer. Decomposing fish waste and algae along with the normal respiration of aquatic life, depletes the oxygen faster than it can diffuse back into the water.

Your Pond requires aeration 24 hour a day, especially during the hot summer months. The warmer the water is, the less oxygen it can hold and you could loose your fish overnight. Lake aerators are the solution.

For small ponds, waterfalls and fountains help supplement an air pump system, but should not be the sole source of pond aeration. We strongly suggest you use an Air Pump and Air Stones to achieve total pond aeration from the bottom to the top regardless of depth.

In areas where there are harsh winters, use a floating fountain pond aerator in addition to floating Pond Deicer that keeps a small area from freezing. This open area allows the naturally occurring gasses to escape and adds oxygen to the water.  Dormant fish still need oxygen under the ice. These units can be left in the water during the winter while the pond freezes around it. Then in the spring when the pond thaws, it is ready to turn on again.

So, if your fish are at the surface of the water and look like they are gasping for air, they probably are. Add a floating pond lake aerator and keep your pond clean and healthy.

These decorative floating aerators provide the perfect solution for improving water quality in fish ponds and lakes. It adds oxygen at the bottom of your lake or pond important for algae control.

For algae and aquatic weed maintenance, additives like natural beneficial bacteria and pond dye starve the algae so that it retards the growth and is safe for fish and the enviroment.
