Oxygenate Your Waterbody with Aeration
One of the biggest factors in the health of your lake or pond is oxygen. When dissolved oxygen levels are sufficient, water quality is greatly improved. The best way to increase dissolved oxygen in your waterbody is through the use of specialized equipment. There are many types of aeration systems that fall under the broad categories of floating, which work from the top down, and submersed, which work from the bottom up. Read some of our most informative articles about all things aeration.
1. The Benefits of Lake and Pond Aeration
Aeration is important, but no two waterbodies are the same. That’s why it’s important to understand how and why this solution can impact your unique aquatic resources. Learn about the many benefits of aeration and the ways in which dissolved oxygen impacts the entire ecosystem.
2. Lake Aeration: Submersed Aeration Systems
How deep is your waterbody? Are their hills and valleys below the surface? How has volume changed over the years? These are all important questions when determining the right aeration solution for each lake and pond – in many cases, it’s a submersed system! Learn more about this approach.
3. Breaking Through the Thermocline to Prevent Fish Kills
If you’ve ever swum in a lake or pond during the summer, you may have noticed a significant contrast in temperature from the water’s surface to your feet. This transition is called the thermocline. While natural, thermoclines can have a very negative impact on fish and other species. Find out how aeration can help prevent problems from occurring.
Aeration is a tried and true management solution for our water resources, and over the years equipment has evolved. The lake management industry recently welcomed a new technology called direct oxygen saturation for added aeration benefits. Keep an eye out for new information soon!

Great Partnership for Nearly A Decade
I’m the property manager of a large residential community in the Tampa Bay area. The property has 27 waterbodies ranging in size from several hundred square feet to almost 69 acres. SOLitude has serviced our aquatic needs for nearly a decade which have ranged from shoreline restoration and aquatic plantings to algae treatment and aeration with excellence and integrity. As a partner in our efforts to always improve our water quality they are a great resource and are able to provide any service relating to water that may be needed.
No More Algae!
SOLitude has completely corrected our community pond. No more algae, which has kept the fountain running well. We have a monthly maintenance contract, and I always receive notice of when they are coming and if they found any issues.

Improve Your Lake’s Water Quality with SOLitude
I have worked with SOLitude for many years at our HOA with our lakes committee. Our biologist, Christina, has been such an asset to our community from the installation of lake aeration to nutrient mitigation and her positive attitude and professionalism. The entire company is one that I would certainly recommend to any community seeking to improve their lake’s water quality.
You Can Count On SOLitude
Christine and SOLitude are the best lake company I have had the privilege of working with as a Property Manager. I do not have to worry about service, fountains, aerators, littorals, or most importantly weed infestation on lake banks. I have been in the business for over 10 years and if the property is one Christine is in charge of with SOLitude, you can count on them running things very professionally. Absolute 5-star treatment.
Recommendations Are Thoughtful & Achievable
Erin and the rest of the SOLitude crew do a fantastic job monitoring water quality and algae growth. Erin used environmentally friendly products to control both the algae and maintain water quality with great success. Site visits are as promised and reports are clear and concise and recommendations are always thoughtful and achievable. We appreciate the effort by Erin and the other SOLitude staff that support our effort.
The Water Is Crystal Clear

Responsive & Resolved Our Issues
SOLitude has managed our community’s 24 lakes for many years and we are very satisfied with their performance. One of our lakes has been experiencing regular algae blooms and SOLitude’s biologist, Christina, performed a comprehensive lake and water analysis to determine the cause of the problem. Recommendations were presented and the problem was resolved. The SOLitude technician, Maxwell, is in control of managing our littoral plants and is very responsive to resolving identified issues.
Healthy Water Quality & Fish
SOLitude has been managing our lake for the past two years. Through their efforts, the lake’s water quality has improved tremendously. Even with one of the hottest and dryest seasons I received nothing but compliments on the water clarity as well as positive feedback from fishermen about the abundance of healthy fish.
Got Ponds Back Into Shape
We have 5 water features on the property and before SOLitude Lake Management came, our ponds were full of algae and aquatic weeds, looking very unhealthy. In the past 7 years, SOLitude has cleaned out our ponds and got them back into shape making them look like amazing water features as they should be.

SOLitude Lake Management has been and will continue to be my “go-to” firm… The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and willing to always go that extra mile.
