Our aeration system is a fine bubble, low maintenance, economical system that introduces air at the bottom of the watershed which increases the oxygen content of the water and keeps organic matter under control rather than floating or decaying on the bottom.
Lakes or ponds normally circulate oxygen naturally. In the summer, the top layers grow warmer and rich in the oxygen while bottom layers stay cold and use up oxygen. During the fall and spring, temperature-density relationships cause the strata to exchange places. These exchanges mix water throughout the entire depth of the watershed.
Aeration diffusers, placed on the bottom of the lake or pond, release thousands of small air bubbles per minute. These bubbles rise to the surface pushing bottom water ahead of them. This displaced water is replaced by water which has moved down from above. Pumping action of rising column creates a circular flow pattern which is constantly causing bottom water to move to the surface, absorb oxygen from the atmosphere above and return to the bottom.
The ice melting tubing uses the same principles of pushing the warm bottom water to the surface in the winter time, to prevent ice from forming.
