Why is proper aeration important?
When you have a pond or lake, it is important to have proper aeration. Aerating your pond means having something in place where you can circulate and move water and oxygen throughout the surface and below the water. You want to ensure there is no buildup of stagnant water, which can be harmful to fish and have an overall negative impact on the health of your pond. If you do not have proper aeration, your fish will be limited on the size of their livable habitat. Instead, they will be trapped in the upper layer of your pond, where the oxygen occurs naturally. Having aeration will circulate oxygenated water throughout your pond or lake., which allows your fish to enjoy the entirety of the habitat. Also, aeration aids in removing an abundance of organic waste such as leaves and much at the bottom of your pond. Decomposing materials on the bottom of your pond can cause unpleasant odors, the buildup of muck, and even algae blooms. If you want to get the most out of your lake or pond, you need to make sure you have proper aeration.
