Choosing Your Floating Fountain
A floating pond fountain is a beautiful addition to any pond. However, did you know that not all floating fountains are made the same? In other words, you have to choose a floating fountain that will work for your type of pond, lake, or any other water feature. Fountains can be made to aerate your waters or can also work as a simple compliment to your pond. You’ll be able to find a range of sizes and aeration power to accommodate the layout of your pond.
An aerating fountain is the first choice you can consider. These fountains work best if you’re looking to aerate a large pond properly. They are designed as high-volume fountains that create a significant force to move large areas of water. If you have a large pond that needs aeration for the surface area and deep in the waters, an aeration floating fountain is the way to go.
When it comes to decorative floating fountains, they are a bit different than aerating floating fountains. These fountains would work best for smaller ponds or water features meant to complement the layout of your home. The decorative fountain won’t have the same power output to move large amounts of water in your pond. However, they are still a beautiful addition to your pond and can perfectly decorate your exterior landscape.
The Layout of Your Pond
Another thing you have to consider is the shape of your pond. Your main goal is to have your aeration reach all pond areas. One factor that can affect how your floating fountains aerate your pond is the shape. If you have an oval or round pond, one aerating fountain should be enough to cover the entire area of the surface water. However, you may need a couple of floating fountains if your pond is square-shaped or irregular in design. This is because the aeration needs to be spread evenly throughout the surface area of your pond.
Power of Your Floating Fountain
When shopping for your new floating fountain, you may run into a few differences in power. Bigger ponds could require a floating fountain with sufficient horsepower to aerate the entire pond. Remember that you also have to think about the depth of the pond. If you invest in a floating fountain that can’t reach the bottom, you will get bad bacteria and excessive nutrients in the water.
