Aeration - How to aerate your pond for a healthy water balance

Aeration is the process of providing oxygen to the water. By maintaining a balance of organic and oxygen nutrients, the ecosystem of a pond, lake, or water garden will maintain its optimum balance.

Aeration is the process of adding oxygen to your pond, lake, or water garden. It allows for the proper balance of water nutrients. Aeration helps keep fish healthier by reducing the amount of ammonia, phosphorous and nitrite that accumulate. Adding oxygen to a pond can be done mechanically or manually.

Aeration can also be done with an air pump that uses a continuous or interval circulation method. Continuous circulation allows for aeration to occur at all depths of the water column. Interval circulation uses shallow depths to aerate, then deeper depths when needed.

Aeration Equipment - Pond Aeration &, Pond Equipment

Pond aeration equipment makes underwater aeration possible. Aerators push water, air, or algae up to the surface for evaporation and photosynthesis. Water is brought to the surface in a swirling motion that increases the oxygen content of the water. Aerators are also used for nutrient cycling or wastewater treatment.

Aerators are one of the best tools for reducing the amount of ammonia and phosphorous in a pond, lake, or water garden. When dissolved oxygen levels are depleted in a water body, it begins to accumulate certain dissolved gases, such as ammonia and nitrite.

In order to reduce the amount of ammonia and nitrite in the water, which can cause fish to become diseased, aeration is one of the best ways to get rid of the problem. Aeration increases oxygen levels in a water body by bringing air into the water.

Air is brought to the surface by an aerator. The aerator does not create bubbles, but creates a vortex instead, pulling water and oxygen up to the surface. This increases the oxygen levels to 10 times or more above normal levels. As air bubbles break the surface, the dissolved gases rise as well.

For ponds that are not stocked with fish, aeration equipment can help to increase oxygen levels. A nitrogen cycle is often used to encourage algae growth that increases oxygen levels. Algae grows naturally on the pond bottom, as well as on aquatic plants such as water hyacinth and water lettuce.

Ponds require proper aeration to prevent the buildup of ammonia and nitrite. Aeration prevents these dissolved gases from rising to toxic levels in the water.

This is why the majority of ponds in North America use aeration for proper water filtration and oxygenation. Aeration equipment makes use of one of two different types of motors:

Centrifugal Pumps. The centrifugal pump is designed for water with low levels of dissolved gases.

Aerator Motors. The aerator motor is used for ponds where dissolved gases are not a problem.

It should be noted that not all pond owners aerate their ponds. This is because, unless the pond is stocked with fish, they do not require aeration.

It is also recommended to keep your pond at a constant temperature.

If the pond does not contain fish, it may only require aeration. However, if there is an undercurrent or current of any sort in the pond, aeration is required to prevent the build-up of ammonia and nitrite in the water.

If the pond has an undercurrent or current, it will need aeration equipment such as a jetter or a submersible pump to provide the bubbles that break the surface to provide proper aeration.

It is recommended that you consult your local pond management company to obtain information and advice on how to set-up and maintain your pond.

When do you aerate your pond?

When do you aerate your pond?

Aeration is the process of stirring the water to make sure it remains a relatively uniform depth in the pond and to create bubbles.

To do this properly, you need to do aeration in the early morning when water temperature and dissolved oxygen levels are the lowest.

This process involves adding air bubbles or air-lift to the water to provide oxygen. Air is injected into the water through various techniques.

Most ponds are kept aerated all year round. You may have to do some aeration during the summer months to ensure there are sufficient levels of dissolved oxygen in the pond and that the fish have proper oxygen levels in the water.

When should you aerate?

If the aeration equipment that you currently use is not keeping the water in the pond aerated, then it is recommended that you change it for the summer.

The only equipment that should be changed is if the filter is clogged or the equipment has been poorly maintained.

If you are using power-driven aeration equipment such as a pump, you will need to set it up after the spring flood and then do a little aeration every two weeks.

If you are using air-lift systems, aeration is only required when you want the water to be oxygenated.

To do this properly, you need to do aeration in the early morning when water temperature and dissolved oxygen levels are the lowest.

Setting up your aeration equipment

To set up and use your aeration equipment, follow the manufacturer's instructions and always check the equipment to make sure it is working properly before using it in the pond.

If you are installing your new equipment on a temporary basis and have a good working knowledge of how to work with electricity and plumbing, you should be able to install your own equipment.
