What to Look for when Adding a Fountain to Parks & Rec, Golf Courses, and HOA’s  - Air-O-Lator - Pond Aeration & Maintenance Products

Within our work with Parks and Rec, golf courses, and HOAs, we see many people searching for a water quality solution that is functional and appealing. Clean water is the most attractive display that any pond can have. Ultimately, Air-O-Lator’s aerators and fountains provide a dynamic feature that can also keep water clean, clear, and healthy. 

Improving Water Quality 

Ponds and lakes naturally crave oxygen. Aerators and fountains ensure that water is constantly moving and providing oxygen for the microorganisms or water wildlife that feeds off the water. Water improves our overall ecosystem and enhances the value and allure of the property. 

A fountain is a chance to add a beautiful water feature and improve water for irrigation, aesthetics, or aquatic life.

  • If your water feature is located in a pond with algae, an aerator/fountain can help mitigate growth. 
  • If your pond has aquatic waterlife that calls it home, an aquatic aerator can introduce and circulate oxygen to keep fish or aquatic wildlife healthy, ultimately contributing to a more robust natural ecosystem. 
  • If you’re just looking for a water feature to enhance your park, neighborhood, or golf course, an easy-to-use fountain is a simple solution that adds pizazz and naturally aerates your pond. It’s a win-win! 

Choosing Your Fountain or Aerator 

Most ponds could benefit from a fountain or aerator. Once you’ve determined your need for a fountain or aerator and the consistent challenges your pond or lake faces, the Air-O-Lator team can provide information and direction for what kind of application you need. CEO Roy Watkins is known for his many road trips to help customers pinpoint their needs and pair them with a sustainable water solution. 

What Codes do My Fountains and Aerators Need to Meet? 

Electrical requirements may vary across cities and states. But, rest assured, our equipment is designed and manufactured to meet the national electric code. Our Air-O-Lator experts will also offer guidance for the best fountains and aerators to fit your space with regulations and limitations in mind. We have fountains and aerators that can operate with or without electricity entering the water, as well as solar-powered fountains. Should you have questions about wires, power supply, circuit breakers, or other concerns, we will talk you through your options. We also provide any detailed specifications you need for bids. 

How it Works – The Initial Consult 

Often, people contact Air-O-Lator with concerns about their water quality. Some of the most common issues we hear are stagnant water, algae blooms, and poor water quality. In most cases, a water quality expert will go out and meet with clients, assess the situation, or look up their location on Google Earth to virtually evaluate the pond situation.

Evaluating Cost 

Often, the best solution is also an expensive one. Our experts work with you to find an approach that fits your needs and budget. We’ll honestly tell you what you need to prioritize and what can wait. Your solution may come in one application or a combination of fountains and aerators. 

Ultimately, we’re here to help keep the water clean and healthy, the way it should be. We encourage and educate our customers and invite them to our mission of sustainability.
