 The  Best  Way  To  Aerate  Your  Pond
 
 Your  Pond  requires  aeration  24  hour  a  day,  especially  during  the  long  hot  summer  months.  The  hotter  the  weather,  the  warmer  the  water  is,  the  less  oxygen  it  can  hold  and  you  could  lose  your  fish  overnight.  A  pond  aeration  kit  is  the  solution.  Without  the  installation  of  a  pond  aerator  your  pond  will  become  stagnant  and  smell  bad,  not  to  mention  the  green  algae  or  aquatic  weeds  and  the  stress  your  fish  will  go  through  because  of  lower  oxygen  levels.  You  need  to  mix  up  the  ;ower  level  and  upper  levels  of  the  pond  water  and  the  best  way  to  do  that  is  with  a  pond  aerator.  It  mixes  up  a  high  volume  of  water  with  a  propeller  that  is  attached  to  a  motor,  similar  to  a  large  mixer,  while  giving  you  a  beautiful
 Decorative  Aeration  Fountain  display.

 A  decorative  pond  fountain  is  designed  with  a  high  volume  pump  that  pulls  the  water  into  the  pump  and  forces  the  water  back  out  through  a  decorative  nozzle,  and  that  is  how  you  get  the  taller  decorative  spray.  This  type  of  pond  fountain  will  give  you  taller  and  more  fancy  displays.  A  pond  fountain  will  aerate  but  not  at  the  same  rate  an  an  aerator.  Whenever  you  move  the  water  around  you  are  disturbing  stagnation,  retarding  the  growth  of  algae  and  adding  oxygen.  Even  heavy  winds  will  move  the  water  and  disturb  stagnation.  Pond  Fountains  main  purpose  is  for  aesthetics,   although  it  does  aerate  because  it  moves  the  water  around  similar  to  a  pond  aerator,  but  certainly  not  at  the  same  high  rate.  The  spray  patterns  on  a  decorative  pond  fountain  usually  have  several  patterns  that  are  very  tall  and  wide,  so  more  decorative  use,  great  for  fountains  for  golf  courses,  wedding  venues  and  resorts.

 Floating  Pond  Aerators
 A  lack  of  oxygen  in  a  pond  or  lake  can  lead  to  fish  kills,  foul  odors,  algae  growth,  and  stagnant  vegetation.  Our  floating  aeration  systems  have  been  made  and  proven  to  prevent  these  problems  by  adding  essential  oxygen  to  your  pond  or  lake,  for  a  clean,  fresh,  healthy  ecosystem.
 
 Scott  floating  pond  aerators  also  eliminate  mosquito  breeding,  inhibit  surface  and  bottom  growth  of  algae,  and  keep  your  pond  water  sparkling  clean,  all  while  creating  a  mesmerizing,  high-volume  "white  boiling"  effect  of  highly  aerated  water.

 Pond  and  Lake  Aeration:
 A  pond  that  is  stagnant  can  make  even  the  most  beautiful  aquatic  environment  become  unsightly  and  odorous.  In  order  to  keep  your  pond  enjoyable  and  healthy  for  years  to  come,  you  will  need  an  aeration  system.  Aquatic  plants  and  fish  live  in  the  water,  and  they  need  oxygen  to  live.  Aquatic  plants  and  fish  also  give  off  carbon  dioxide  and  other  gases  that  need  to  escape  the  water.  In  still  pond  water,  gas  exchange  can  only  occur  on  the  surface.  Water  on  the  surface  of  the  pond  gets  fresh  oxygen  from  the  air.  But  this  is  only  enough  to  oxygenate  the  water  surface.  Oxygen  won’t  make  its  way  down  to  the  deeper  levels  of  water  naturally.  So  aeration  is  the  process  of  mixing  the  fresh  oxygen  throughout  the  whole  pond.  This  fresh  oxygen  keeps  your  pond  water  very  healthy  and  your  fish  and  microorganism’s  alive  and  well.
 Aquatic  plants  and  fish  need  oxygen  to  live.  Water  on  the  surface  gets  fresh  oxygen  from  the  air.  But  this  is  only  enough  to  oxygenate  the  surface.  Oxygen  won’t  make  its  way  down  to  deeper  water  naturally.  So  aeration  is  the  plthy  and  your  fish  and  microorganism’s  alive  and  well.
 
 So  as  you  can  see,  pond  aeration  is  very  important.  But  you  already  knew  that,  stirring  up  the  water  is  the  best  way  to  ensure  adequate  circulation.  This  is  what  you  need  to  avoid  severe  stratification  and  turnovers.
 
 Why  Use  an  Pond  Aerator?
 
 A  surface  or  sub  surface  pond  aerator  is  a  type  of  mechanical  device  that  can  disburse  oxygen  into  an  aquatic  environment  at  a  high  volume.  This  disbursement  creates  an  oxygen-rich  environment  and  prevents  water  from  becoming  stagnant,  which  cannot  only  be  unsightly,  but  also  hazardous  to  your  health.  Bacteria  breeds  quickly  in  stagnant  water,  and  ingesting  it  can  be  dangerous.high  volume  pond  circulators

 If  you  live  in  the  mid  west  or  south  east  you  get  a  lot  of  rain  and  most  likely  you  have  lots  of  ponds  in  your  area  or  maybe  you  are  lucky  enough  to  have  a  pond  in  your  backyard.  
 A  small  pond  fountain  is  the  so  easy  to  install  and  would  be  the  best  addition  since  it  makes  a  beautiful  decorative  spray  in  the  middle  of  the  pond,  but  it  also  moves  the  water
 and  induces  oxygen  back  into  the  pond,  giving  more  oxygen  for  all  the  aquatic  plant  life  and  aquatic  wildlife  and  other  organisms  necessary  to  keep  the  pond  eco  system  in  balance.

 Cleaning  Your  Pond  Without  Draining  It
 If  your  pond  is  very  murky,  green  and  full  of  debris,  then  it  might  be  time  for  a  good  old  fashioned  pond  cleaning!  But  before  you  even  consider  draining  the  pond,  here  is  how  you  get  your  pond  water  back  to  being  clean  and  clear  in  three  easy  steps.
 A  usual  misconception  when  your  pond  water  starts  to  become  murky  is  that  you  need  to  drain  your  this  water  and  replace  it  with  fresh  water  in  order  to  correct  the  problem.  In  most  cases,  this  is  so  unnecessary,  and  could  potentially  do  more  harm  than  good.
 because  you  will  disrupt  the  natural  ecosystem  of  the  pond.  Draining  your  pond  water  with  a  small  pond  fountain  pump  is  only  necessary  in  very  extreme  cases,  and  should  never  be  done  as  a  general  way  of  cleaning  your  pond.  
 Billions  and  billions  of  good  bacteria  and  microorganisms  live  in  your  pond  water.  They  can  decrease  the  amount  of  harmful  chemicals  that  collect  in  the  pond  such  as  nitrogen  and  ammonia.
 When  you  drain  your  murky  pond  water,  you  also  drain  all  of  the  good  bacteria  and  microorganisms,  this  is  a  natural  filtration  system  for  your  ponds  ecosystem.  When  you  add  water  to  your  pond,  especially  from  the  tap,  you  are  compounding  problems.  Most  tap  water  is  chlorinated,  a  chemical  that  your  good  bacterial,  microorganisms  and  your  fish  can't  tolerate  it.

 You  are  probably  wondering…  Is  there  ever  a  situation  where  I  should  drain  my  pond?  Let’s  try  to  rule  out  whether  or  not  you  need  to  drain  the  water.  
 First,  you  will  never  need  to  drain  the  pond  entirely,  especially  if  you  have  wildlife,  you  need  to  leave  some  of  that  good  stuff.  It’s  ideal  for  the  health  and  benefits  of  the  organisms  you  have  in  your  pond  water  to  allow  some  of  the  bacteria  to  remain  in  your  pond.
 Draining  no  more  than  half  of  the  water  can  go  a  long  way  in  helping  with  the  water  quality.  If  your  pond  becomes  overstocked  with  fish,  you  may  end  up  with  poor  water  quality.  Particularly  during  the  summer  time  when  your  fish  produce  more  waste  because  of  their  metabolism  being  higher.
 Good  bacteria  can  sometimes  become  overwhelmed  when  there  is  too  much  waste  build  up,  and  this  will  result  in  poor  water  quality.  So  in  these  conditions,  a  small  water  change  will  help  improve  the  quality  of  your  water,  but  you  definitely  cannot  drain  all  of  the  water.
 Lastly,  be  sure  that  the  water  you  fill  your  pond  back  up  with  has  been  properly  dechlorinated  to  ensure  the  safety  and  health  of  your  fish,  good  bacteria  and  microorganisms.  Before  starting  this  project,  remove  all  your  garden  pond  fountains,  so  you  can  reinstall  at  a  later  date.
