Electric Aeration and Your Pond
Electric aeration is one of the many ways to aerate a pond. Aeration in itself is the process of infusing oxygen into the waters of the pond. This can also include small lakes and other bodies of water. So why is oxygen essential for the pond habitat? Well, oxygen is a necessary component for pond life, such as fish, to live and thrive.
Moreover, oxygen also keeps the water circulating, preventing standing or stagnant water. Outdoor Water Solutions carries several varieties of electric aerators including the Deep Pond Electric Aerator AerMaster Pro 5. What are the key components of electric aeration? Let’s go over some of these features.
The Electric Aerator
Although you will find an assortment of aeration alternatives in the market, such as solar and wind aerators, you can also consider the electric aerator. One of the most significant differences between the electric aeration and natural aeration alternatives is that electric aeration doesn’t rely on natural power. This can come in handy because you won’t have to worry if your aerator will power up on those cloudy days or if no wind is in your area. The aeration process will keep on going regardless with the electric option.
Aerating Large Ponds and Lakes
Another benefit you can get from electric aeration is that you’ll be able to aerate large bodies of water as well as small areas. The aeration system can also begin cleaning your waters as soon as you turn it on to aerate. An electric aeration system can also reach deep into the waters to break down the excessive nutrients helping to clear your water.
The Benefits of Electric Aeration
Electric aeration can work quickly if you need to clean and clear your water from an overgrowth of algae bloom and other types of pond muck. Although algae particles are considered beneficial nutrients for your pond habitat, too much algae bloom can cause problems. The electric aerating system for ponds will work hard and quickly to clean the water. It will also eliminate any foul odors caused by the pond muck and dirty pond environment. However, even though an electric aeration system is a great choice to aerate your pond, remember that a power outage can also cause a short disruption in the aeration process. Therefore, make sure to prepare your pond and aeration setup for any long-term power outages.
