Submerged Aeration or Fountains?
Submerged Diffused Aeration
Depending on the depth of your pond, a fountain may not provide enough aeration. Why? To achieve total pond aeration the entire body of water needs to circulate at the same time. Fountains draw water from the top of the pond, water that is at depths deeper than 6-feet remain oxygen-deprived.
Underwater aeration systems, are recommended for ponds deeper than 6′ to provide complete circulation. Larger Ponds may require more than one aeration unit. With an aeration unit, the air is pushed through diffuser plates positioned at the bottom of the pond. As the air bubbles rise, oxygenated water from the surface moves to the bottom, creating a healthy aerobic pond ecosystem.
Fountains add visual appeal to your pond and waterway, the spraying of water is relaxing and tranquil to hear. In addition to their visual qualities, fountains add a great deal of oxygen into the pond as the tiny droplets make contact with the air and fall back into the pond.
Determining the right fountain for your pond is vital to a pond’s health. Just like choosing an aeration system, deciding if a fountain is right for your pond will depend on the depth, shape, and size. Fountains are a good option for aerating ponds less than 6′ deep and uniformly shaped, for aerating the pond.
