Aquarian Tune Up Kit for Surface Aeration
Just like our Font’N-Aire fountains, Aquarian Surface Aerator Tune Up Kits are recommended periodically to keep your system running for years to come! Airolator recommends a Tune Up Kit every 1-2 years depending on run time and environmental factors.
Verify your system horsepower to order the correct Tune Up Kit.
1/2hp-1.5hp Aquarian Tune Up Kit Professional Kits Include:
- Shaft slinger
- Note – 2hp-5hp Aquarian Commercial/Quantum units contain a stainless steel propeller and do not require a tune up kit
Benefits of Surface Aeration:
Prevents Oxygen Depletion
One of the primary benefits of surface aeration is that it can help to prevent oxygen depletion in the water column. Fish and other aquatic organisms can suffocate and die when oxygen levels drop too low. Surface aeration helps to avoid this by ensuring a constant supply of oxygen in the water.
Reduces Algae Growth
Another benefit of surface aeration is that it can help reduce algae growth in shallow ponds. Algae thrive in warm, stagnant water that is rich in nutrients. By increasing surface turbulence and oxygen levels, surface aeration can help disrupt the favorable conditions for algae growth. This can help to keep the pond clear and reduce the need for chemical treatments.
Improve Water Quality
Surface aeration can enhance water quality in shallow ponds by promoting the even distribution of nutrients throughout the water column. This, in turn, facilitates the growth of beneficial bacteria that break down organic matter and improve water clarity. Furthermore, higher oxygen levels can stimulate the growth of aerobic bacteria that consume harmful pollutants, reducing the likelihood of bacterial blooms that may be hazardous.
Another advantage of surface aeration is its ability to encourage the growth of aquatic plants, which require significant oxygen levels to thrive. By increasing oxygen levels and water turbulence, surface aeration can create a more favorable environment for aquatic plants, providing several additional benefits such as better water clarity and increased habitat for aquatic life.
