Are you looking for a way to enhance the aesthetic beauty of your pond? Aeration can not just improve the look of a pond but also enhances the natural systems taking place below the water surface. There are some unique benefits of aerating a pond using pond fountains and fountain pumps. Aeration helps in destratification of the water column. Lakes and ponds have stratified layers that are separated by different temperature and oxygen levels.
Aeration plays a major role in improving the quality of water in a pond. It stabilizes pH, minimizes alkalinity and removes carbon dioxide. It also reduces pond algae. Via aeration, algae spores get mixed with deeper areas of the pond and minimize the amount of time it gets exposed to sunlight. Aeration systems are beneficial for freshwater fish also. They get adequate dissolved oxygen levels to survive in an oxygen-deprived habitat.
