Fountains act as surface aerators, though surface aeration is recommended only in the shallow areas 

of the pond as fountains are much less efficient than bottom-up aeration for increasing oxygen levels.

Fountains do have more visual appeal though than bottom-up aerators and add to the decor of the pond! 

Essentially, the splashing of the fountain water traps oxygen in the top 6 inches to 1 FT of the surface pond water.

We include our aeration and decorative nozzles to increase the oxygen capture and depth 

that the surface aeration will go down. 

The deeper the splash the further down the oxygen penetration goes which 

helps with the circulation flow in the pond.

Surface aeration also assists with minimizing the amount of insect breeding in the pond 

by providing consistent surface agitation.
