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.
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.
