Pond and Lake Management
Fountains and Aeration

Adding a fountain or aerator can be one of the best ways to upgrade your lake or pond. Fountains and aeration systems provide a multitude of benefits to your water body; improving water quality, heightening habitat value for fish and wildlife, decreasing algea blooms, and adding aesthetic value. Adding a fountain or aeration system to a body of water is a proactive management technique; rather than treating the problem once it has occurred, it can help fix the underlying cause of issues within your water body. We offer many different options for fountains and aerators, and can provide you with the perfect set up for your pond or lake. We can handle all aspects of installation and maintenance for the systems we provide. All our fountains and aerators come with a warranty, guaranteeing they will serve you for years to come.

Fountains

Fountains add movement to a still body of water, preventing water from becoming stagnant

A fountain is a device that will "launch" water into the air, causing an attractive cascade of water. Fountains are available in several spray patterns, can have colored lights attached, and can be set up on a timer system. Fountains will add movement to a still body of water; preventing water from becoming stagnant will prevent mosquitoes from breeding in the water.


Aerators

An aerator is very similar to a fountain, but does not create the same conspicuous cascade of water. Aerators churn water near the surface, creating an area of turbulence that adds air to the water and breaks the surface tension.

Diffusers

Adding oxygen to the water column with a diffuser will improve the water quality.

Diffusers are a less visible method of creating movement in a water body; they sit on the floor of the lake or pond, and release air that bubbles up that gently break the surface. Diffusers provide many of the same benefits as fountains, but are much more inconspicuous. Adding oxygen to the water column with a diffuser will improve the water quality. They can also reduce the amount of "muck" on the bottom of your lake or pond. When used in conjunction with a biologic agent, diffusers are extremely successful at reducing muck.


De-Icer

A de-icer is a submerged device tat creates movement in the water, preventing your lake or pond from freezing over. By preventing ice over, you can eliminate fish kills that may typically occur in the winter. A deicer is also a great option if you have a permanent dock, as it keeps an area open around the dock. For those who enjoy wildlife viewing, having open water in the winter will entice birds, geese, and aquatic mammals to your lake or pond.
