If you have a large pond or lake on your property, you may be wondering if you should invest in a pond aerator. Large ponds and lakes need care just like small ponds and water gardens. Many pond and lake owners rely on reactive methods to keep their bodies of water clean and healthy. Unfortunately, manually cleaning algae and relying on chemical applications can be damaging to the ecosystem you’re trying to protect, especially to your fish friends.
That’s why Aquatic & Garden Decor carries Airmax Ecosystem pond aerators to help keep the ecosystem of your water feature balanced all year long. Pond aerators are devices that help to improve the water quality by circulating the water and introducing oxygen. This can be beneficial for fish and other aquatic creatures, as well as for the overall health of the ecosystem. In addition, aerated ponds tend to have less algae growth, making them more pleasant for swimming and fishing.
The Benefits of an Airmax Ecosystem Pond Aerator System
If you’re looking for a pond aeration system that can provide numerous benefits for your ecosystem, look no further than the Airmax Ecosystem Pond Aerator System. This system is designed to provide aeration and circulation for ponds of all sizes, and it can also help to improve water quality and clarity. In addition, the Airmax Ecosystem Pond Aerator System can help to reduce the formation of algae and aquatic weeds, and it can even discourage geese and other unwanted wildlife from taking up residence in your pond.
A healthy, clear, and circulated water column
The Airmax Aeration System eliminates the thermocline (water separated into multiple layers based on temperature). When the thermocline is eliminated, oxygen can get to the bottom, creating a perfect environment for aerobic beneficial bacteria such as PondClear and MuckAway to thrive.
Preventing winter fish kill
Keeping the aerator running in colder climates (where an ice layer may form) will greatly reduce the chances of a winter fish kill. Dying or dead vegetation will cause toxic gases to build up underneath the ice during the winter months. The Airmax Aeration System can prevent this by circulating the water column and pumping oxygen into the pond or lake. Circulating the water column will also maintain an open hole in the ice, allowing the toxic gases to safely escape.
A stronger fish population
In a thermally stratified state, the bottom half of your pond becomes almost uninhabitable to fish. The low oxygen and high amount of toxins drive your fish into the much warmer top half of the pond. The Airmax Aeration System de-stratifies the water column, creating optimal conditions for fish to inhabit the entire body of water.
Your pond or lake is your personal paradise. Don’t let it get past the point of no return! We are proud to carry Airmax Ecosystem pond aerators at Aquatic & Garden Decor. Stop in today to find the perfect system for you.
