Everyone can enjoy the benefits of a decorative fountain in their pond. We recommend a fountain or a diffused air system for all ponds to improve health and achieve maximum oxygenation.

Diffused Air Systems

Adding a diffusion system to your pond is great for those who want the full benefits of a fountain without the above water aesthetic. Diffuser systems are better suited for ponds more prone to sludge and algae growth since they work from beneath the surface to break up stagnant water. Our team can design a unique system to your pond’s size for optimal aeration.

How Aeration Works

Not sure why your pond needs aeration? If you’ve ever stepped into a body of water and felt that unsettling sludge under your feet, you’re probably stepping into a non-aerated pond. Most natural ponds aren’t artificially oxygenated, so sludge starts to form on every surface under the water. However, preventing that nasty slime isn’t the only benefit!

· Prevents stagnant water

· Reduces nasty odors

· Keeps away mosquitos and other pests

· Slows algae growth

Fountains and aerators accomplish the same result in two different ways. As water droplets shoot into the air, they trap oxygen that gets distributed back into the body of water. On the other hand, aerators can provide surface or underwater oxygen distribution. Underwater aerators carry oxygen bubbles up from underneath, boosting plant and animal life while preserving the habitat.
