Want to keep an area free and clear of ice? Then 1/2″ Ice Melt Tubing 250′ is just the thing!
The 1/2″ Ice Melt Tubing 250′ has slits every 24″ and is designed to push warm water from the bottom to the surface to prevent water from freezing. Ice formation can cause damage to your lake or pond and area around it. In other words, this structural damage can include damage to boats, docks, pilings, and anything else in the water. Plus, a frozen lake or pond can cause damage to your fish and aquatic wildlife. Bottom pond or lake water continually absorbs heat from the ground below. In conclusion, using ice melt tubing or aeration diffusers, we can move this bottom water to the surface, keeping it from freezing.
This is self-weighted tubing with aeration slits to give you more air spread over a much bigger area. This price is for a 250′ roll and includes a plug on the end.
Why does keeping the ice open matter?
By keeping the ice open, you can help prevent a fish kill and pond turnover. It helps release toxic gasses released by anoxic sediment. Having the gasses trapped in your pond all winter can make for a nasty spring and require extra work to clean your pond when it thaws. Using aeration to keep ice from covering your pond also attracts wildlife during the winter months. Additionally, you want to ensure your ice is open to protect any expensive structures you have in your pond. These include boats, docks, and pilings.
It also helps keep your fish alive as one of the major reasons for winter fish kills is pond freeze up, which can prevent photosynthesis which produces much-needed oxygen.
