Benefits of Pond Fountains
- Floating fountains add an element of beauty to waterbodies
- Fountains help circulation which is essential to maintaining overall pond health.
- Properly sized lake and pond fountains will help to mitigate damage caused by nutrient loading that occurs through the inflow of stormwater.
Submersed Pond Aerators (Pond Air Diffusers)
Submersed pond air diffusers will help to “clean” the water of cloudiness and odors. Most importantly, pond aerators help to reduce the overall accumulation of organic sediment on the bottom and reduce the available nutrients in your water column, thereby reducing the likelihood of problematic algae blooms and other water quality problems. SOLitude offers and installs a variety of submersed lake aeration systems and pond air diffusers.
Solar Aerators for Ponds
Sometimes it’s not feasible to install an aeration system in an isolated lake or pond with no economical way to provide a power source. Fortunately, for those who can’t install an electric pond aeration system, there are now a variety of viable solar-powered pond aerators. Solar aerators for ponds are the perfect option for those who are focused on reducing their ecological footprint by utilizing alternative energy sources. And since there is little to no cost associated with powering a solar aerator, the system will help pay for itself over time.
How Do Solar Powered Pond Fountains Work?
Solar aerators for large ponds incorporate most of the same components as electric aeration systems. Both electric and solar aerators for ponds include an on-shore compressor that pumps air through bottom-weighted tubing to diffusers in the waterbody. The air helps circulate water through the water column, thus adding dissolved oxygen and equalizing the water temperature. The only real difference between the two systems is that a solar aeration system includes a solar panel in order to utilize the sun’s rays as its power source. This helps promote shoreline restoration and cultivate healthy biodiversity in your waterbody. Solar aerators for ponds are designed for aquatic environments ranging in size from small ornamental ponds to lakes up to five acres. If your lake is over five acres in size, please contact SOLitude Lake Management for help customizing your order to fit the needs.
What Happens if the Sun Isn’t Shining?
Many solar-powered pond aerators have the ability to store power through a battery backup system that can effectively be used to power the system during times when the sun is not shining. So, throughout the night when there isn’t any sunlight available or during cloudy weather that compromises the effectiveness of the solar panel, aeration will remain running thanks to the battery backup.
