Lake aeration is one of the most important steps in maintaining a healthy ecosystem. Without oxygen in the water debris like fish waste, algae, plant material, leaves, etc can't decompose and will continue to build up and cause problems. We stock a variety of lake aeration systems to help you keep large bodies of water healthy and looking good.
Depending on what type of water feature you are dealing with, a residential pond, farm pond, commercial pond, golf course pond, storm retention pond, or lagoon you may want to use a different style of aerator. Some common systems include:
The important thing is to start pond aeration and water treatments before things get too bad. By using large pond aeration equipment with bacteria and enzymes you can maintain the pond "naturally". If your pond goes past the point of no return it could be very costly to dredge. If fact, we have heard of homeowners having to pay $100,000 to have a shallow 2 acre pond dredged.
Aeration systems in the past were expensive and not that effective. But, manufacturers have continued to improve lake aerator systems allowing enhanced benefits for less cost. This allows you to aerate more water with more energy efficiency using a lower horsepower pump. New small compressors can be used at lower depths, but still should be 6' deep.
We recommend using bacterial augmentation and enzymatic products along with aeration systems to help reduce muck, and algae. Using both most shorelines can turn from muck to clean in one season.
The great thing about using bacteria and enzymes is you can spot treat areas that have algae instead of having to treat an entire body of water.
Without a proper cool-season prep you could have 100% turnover. If this were to happen it could mean complete fish loss from cold weather stratification. When this happens the upper oxygenated water is separated from cold water below the pond surface. To avoid this from happening we recommend:
