Do pond aerators really work? Water aeration choices for ponds, lakes, and lagoons

Do pond aerators really work? 

Obviously! Aeration is important because it ensures that water does not become stagnant and that too much algae and other growth will not form. There are a wide variety of options available to both commercial and residential users of water aeration systems. Improving oxygen levels in a body of water can be as easy as choosing the right type of aeration system.

Control ponds and lagoons in a positive way

Subsurface aerating fountains for ponds work below the surface of the water to aerate ponds, lagoons and lakes especially when the body of water is deep. Typically, most subsurface aerators use compressors with a variety of hoses and air diffusers to create the desired effect. Oxygen levels in lakes, ponds and lagoons are controlled in a positive way by using this type of aeration device. In most cases, a piston style air compressor is at the core of the subsurface aerator.

It is important to continually improve the levels of oxygen in water in order to keep the environment healthy. Subsurface aerators are a smart alternative to using chemicals to improve water quality. Cost-effective water management is one of the best ways to control water quality year-round.

Using surface aerators for improved water quality and treatment

Ponds, lakes and many other bodies of water can easily become contaminated through poor aeration. In both a commercial and residential capacity, one of the best ways to keep ponds and lakes as well as many other types of bodies of water looking good is to use a surface aerator. This type of device when properly installed and maintained can ensure proper aeration thereby keeping water fresh, vibrant and healthy.

Good water management means protecting water so that people, as well as the environment, do not suffer. Today’s modern surface aerators are energy-efficient, highly effective and affordable. Best of all, surface aerators are installed by professional technicians with minimal disruption and in the shortest amount of time. Floating surface aerators for ponds, lagoons, and lakes improve water quality and look attractive. Mixing water with an aerator in an interesting and innovative way is best accomplished through the use of today’s modern surface aeration devices and systems.

Floating surface aerators can be used effectively to mix water in wastewater lagoons and other bodies of water used for this purpose.

A floating style aerator can also be used in aquaculture systems to improve oxygenation so that systems are always maintained in a healthy state.
