A growing global trend is to install surface or subsurface aerator sin ponds or lakes that are less than 15 feet (5m) deep.Aerators provide the best vertical circulation to add dissolved oxygen to the water.
When a lake or pond loses its ecological balance,the effects or symptoms are readily apparent:
- Unsightly algae build-up
- Aggressive weed growth
- Unpleasant odor
- Depleted fish populations
If this water source is used to supply an irrigation system,the effects are compounded both functionally and aesthetically:
- Clogged sprinkler heads,valves and pumps
- Damaged Turf
- Loss of waters to rage capacity
- Odors,fish kills and insect breeding
- Diminished aesthetic appeal
With the addition of dissolved oxygen into the water and the resulting convection patterns that reduce stratification,aeration systems impacts three factors:
- Oxygen: aerating the water encourages aerobic digestion of nutrients by adding oxygen, which significantly reduces sediments/sludge build-up.
- Nutrients: potentially harmful nutrients are kept in ecological balance through oxidation and De-stratification.
- Temperature: mixing warmer surface and cooler bottom water with dissolved oxygen breaks down stratification to further enhance the ecological balance of adding carbon dioxide at lower levels.
