1/2″ Ice Melt Tubing 250′
Want to keep an area free and clear of ice? Then 1/2″ Ice Melt Tubing 250′ is just the thing!
The 1/2″ Ice Melt Tubing 250′ has slits every 24″ and is designed to push warm water from the bottom to the surface to prevent water from freezing. Ice formation can cause damage to your lake or pond and area around it. In other words, this structural damage can include damage to boats, docks, pilings, and anything else in the water. Plus, a frozen lake or pond can cause damage to your fish and aquatic wildlife. Bottom pond or lake water continually absorbs heat from the ground below. In conclusion, using ice melt tubing or aeration diffusers, we can move this bottom water to the surface, keeping it from freezing.
This is self-weighted tubing with aeration slits to give you more air spread over a much bigger area. This price is for a 250′ roll and includes a plug on the end.
Why does keeping the ice open matter using 1/2″ Ice Melt Tubing 250′?
Well, it’s that time of year when fall is soon upon us, then the short cold days of winter. If you own or manage a pond or lake, then you’re probably not thinking too much about “winterizing” it. Nature will take just take its course until spring arrives. However there are a few things that you can do proactively if you want to get a head start on next year.
To prevent harm to your fish and protect your pond, keep the ice from completely freezing over in winter. This allows toxic gases from the pond bottom to escape, avoiding problems in the spring. Use aeration to keep the pond open and attract wildlife during winter.
Don’t forget to protect any structures in the pond, like boats, docks, and pilings by keeping the ice open. Keeping the ice open also ensures that your fish survive, as ponds that freeze over can prevent photosynthesis and lead to a lack of oxygen, causing fish to die.
