Pond Aerators Increase Oxygen, Ensuring the Health of Your Pond


Visitors: 526

A naturally occurring pond is usually a healthy ecosystem. Fed by a spring or other natural source that adds oxygen to the water (acting as a “pond aerator”), a natural pond is usually home to small bottom dwelling animals such as mussels and worms that filter and clean the water. Fish will thrive and algae will not be an issue. However, many man-made lakes and ponds, or even naturally occurring ponds that have been disrupted due to human activities, suffer from serious problems that start with lack of oxygen reaching the lower water levels.

The result isn’t pretty: algae blooms, weed infestations, fish kills and foul odors. Pond aerators offer an effective way to combat the stagnation in ponds, returning them to health and making them once again a beautiful landscape feature. The pond kits found in big box outlets and department stores are capable of keeping a small, decorative, backyard pond from becoming a stagnant eyesore, but if you have a pond or small lake that’s swimming pool sized or bigger, then your options for finding pond aerators that are up to the task are much more limited.

Most stores simply don’t carry equipment this specialized.
