Benefits of pond aeration
Aerate to optimize oxygen levels in your pond The easiest way to improve the oxygen content in a pond is to increase water movement or to add an aeration device. When water tumbles vigorously over rocky streams and waterfalls, it comes into greater contact with air. Harmful gasses are released and oxygen is incorporated into the water. Pond aeration devices such as water fountains, bubblers, and spitters break the water surface to encourage gas exchange. In contrast, air pumps inject air directly into the water to oxygenate ponds throughout the year.
In addition, bubbles generated by air pumps create vertical water movement to mix stagnant layers of water with oxygen-rich surface layers. Harmful gasses, such as carbon dioxide, located in the lower region of the pond travel upwards with the rising bubbles and are expelled at the surface. This water movement improves circulation and overall dissolved oxygen content in ponds and water gardens. Air pumps prevent oxygen depletion and create a healthy aquatic environment. Proper aeration provides fresh oxygen for fish and allows efficient biological filtration. Air pumps can also be used during the winter to prevent ice from covering the pond water surface.
Vital to its inhabitants, your pond water should always be near oxygen saturation. The key to maintaining sufficient oxygen in your pond is understanding its basic chemistry. Learn how to keep the oxygen levels in your pond at a healthy level.
Please note: Return of electrical equipment to Drs. Foster & Smith for exchange or refund is limited to 60 days from the date of purchase. Beyond 60 days, please contact the manufacturer for repair or replacement as covered by the manufacturer's warranty.
