Lakes or ponds with four feet of water or more can benefit immensely from aeration systems. Aeration systems regulate the levels of dissolved oxygen which is the single most important indicator for the health and water quality of your lake.
Oxygen levels are dependent on the physical, chemical, and biochemical activities present in your lake or pond. The oxygen is naturally present and is produced by aquatic plants and other animals through photosynthesis.
When oxygen levels become unstable massive fish kills can occur, along with other problems. The best way to prevent this is by adding oxygen to your lake through an aeration system. Aeration systems can also reduce the overproduction of specific nutrients that promote algae growth, as well as reducing buildup of muck.
