Solar Pond, Lake And Trough Aeration

There are solar aeration systems designed to improve not only the aquatic environment but also help to GREEN the environment of this island home, our Earth. Solar aeration systems also improve the aesthetics of your ponds, lakes and troughs, or practically any body of water. The systems diaphragm compressors pump air to the diffusers suspended by floats above the bottom. The circular motion of the bubblers results in total water aeration, circulation and destratification in your lake, pond or trough.


During the summer months, when water is warm mini dab rigs , oxygen can be consumed faster than it can be replenished in many bodies of fresh water. Your pond, lake or trough can become “stratified”; the warmer, oxygen-rich upper water laying on top of the cool, more dense upper water laying on top of the cool, more dense, lower-oxygen deeper water. Such conditions inhibit levels of beneficial bacteria and their breakdown of organics in the body of water. Bottom muck accumulation in your water increases and excessive nutrients are readily available for plant/algae growth. This thermal stratification in your water also makes conditions favorable for the production of noxious ammonia and hydrogen sulfide gases.

Solar aeration systems create a vertical current in your body of water using the rising force of small bubbles to entrain, or commonly referred to turn over, the water column. By turning the water over you release harmful gases to the surface where they are released. Your fish are saved from summer kill and winter kill when the water is continuously 24/7 mixed from top to bottom with high oxygen content. This also aids the aerobic bacteria activity, which is very healthy for your aquatic ecosystem. Many people also use solar aeration systems for de-icing their pond, lake or trough.

Water is one element which seems to add to the beauty of its surroundings no matter where it is placed. Adding the sound of a stream cascading down some rocks to an environment is almost guaranteed to have a soothing affect on anyone near enough to hear it, and in the smaller yards of today’s homes, which might not have room for a real garden, the addition of an external wall fountains can do as much as adding a pond and waterfall does for an estate of several acres

Outdoor water springs are very easy to find and come in a marvelous variety of designs. Many outdoor water spouts are constructed of very light resins, allowing them to be mounted on wood as well as heavier materials. They will add life and beauty even the plainest of spaces, and because of their reasonable prices, are within the financial reach of most homeowners.

The fountains constructed from fiber resin are not only light; they are extremely durable and the ideal fountains for do-it-yourself installation. All wall water bubblers will be sold with the necessary tubing, installation directions, and pumps designed with their electrical cords protruding from their backs. The electrical cords are used to connect the pumps of the exterier wall fountains to their power sources.
