For most of the country, the summer heat has officially arrived. While this is great for planning summer vacations and family get-togethers, it’s not so great for our yards and also, our ponds. If you’ve noticed that your pond is looking a little dull and lifeless or if a foul odor is emanating from it and you aren’t using a pond aerator, it may be time to consider investing in a floating pond fountain.
The summer heat and in some places, humidity, can do a number on our ponds. When the temperature rises, pond water can heat up pretty quickly, making it the perfect breeding ground for weeds and algae while making it uncomfortable for your aquatic life. Additionally, it can turn pond water stagnant resulting in a lack of oxygen for your pond and aquatic life.
We may not be able to help with the heat, but we can help your pond survive the summer heatwave ensuring your pond is achieving your desired aesthetics and your fish are comfortable and thriving. At Outdoor Water Solutions, we carry industry-leading floating pond fountains as well as solar fountains that will not only help your pond survive the summer but will keep it in perfect health all year long. Here are a few reasons why you should consider investing in an outdoor floating fountain for your pond.
Floating Pond Fountains Can Improve the Smell of Your Pond
First, it’s important to understand how a floating pond fountain works. A floating pond fountain is a type of outdoor floating fountain that works as a pond aerator. Rather than sit at the bottom of your pond, a floating pond fountain sits on top of the water using a propeller to move high volumes of water helping to circulate oxygen.
The oxygen is then absorbed by the water that is exposed to the air, releasing the gasses that have been trapped in the water. This allows your pond to “breathe” and provides the adequate amount of oxygen necessary for your aquatic life and the health of your pond. In addition to enhancing the health of your pond, some floating pond fountains can enhance the aesthetics via the visual display some of them produce.
Outdoor Floating Fountains Prevent Muck Build-up
Stagnant water is a breeding ground for weeds and algae. Further, any decaying plant life can turn into muck which can wreak havoc on your pond and aquatic life. A floating pond fountain as well as a floating solar pond fountain will keep your pond’s water flowing continuously, preventing the growth of various types of harmful algae and bacteria that develop under the water’s surface.
Another perk of continuously flowing water? The reduction of mosquitos and other insects! There’s quite a bit to look forward to in the summer, but the summer insects are not one of them. Floating pond fountains and solar fountains will keep your water moving as well as keep those bugs away.
