Aeration system in lakes and ponds infuses the much-needed oxygen in the ponds and lakes. Adding lake and pond water aeration is not good for the fishes and other aquatic animals, who need oxygen in order to survive, but it can also improve the overall health of the ecosystem of ponds and lakes. Pond and lake station system add dissolved oxygen and induce circulation throughout the water bodies, thus helping to reduce the damage that is caused by extreme loading of nutrients.
Environmental managers and natural resources are often challenged by the issues caused by pond and lake stratification.
Here is a list of a few reasons why you should consider adding aeration into the lakes and ponds, and the importance of aeration system:
IMPROVES THE QUALITY OF WATER
Nutrients such as phosphates not just get accumulated at the bottom of lakes and ponds to become dirt particles, but they can also be suspended in the water column and cause the pond or lake to look dirty. Also, the bottom sediments also release noxious metals and gases causing water quality issues. Proper aeration allows for several factors that contribute to deprived water quality to be mitigated.
Mosquito needs stagnant water for developing their eggs. However, a submerged aerator or floating fountain creates a constant flow of water in the lake or pond, thus helping to reduce the mosquito breed and also acts as a sustainable and natural mosquito control solution. So, this is how aeration decreases the mosquito activity by creating moving water and ripples.
IMPROVED FISH HABITAT
Diffused aeration also prevent satisfaction in order to maintain an oxygen healthy habitat for fishes and underwater organism. By using aeration you can prevent the ice formation underwater and which could have killed the fishes underneath due to low oxygen levels, especially in the winter months.
REMOVE BAD ODORS
The higher oxygen levels at the bottom help the aerobic bacteria to simply break down an organic substance inside the water body. However, due to the presence of oxygen, these aerobic bacteria are beneficial and efficient to the overall health of a lake or pond.
REDUCED LOAD OF NUTRIENTS
Constant aeration also helps to maintain a fine balance of a healthy environment in a lake or pond. When the right amount of oxygen is maintained at higher levels, the nutrients can be broken down easily and used up to prevent possible algae blooms and mats.
So as you can see that the use of a properly sized aeration system is a cost-effective and great approaching order to control several challenges when it comes to professional lake management.
