Fountains, Circulators & De-Icers
There are many types of aeration systems on the market and each has a specific purpose. Meaning, these systems are not always interchangeable.
Common types of systems include:
- Diffused Aeration Systems - These inconspicuous systems increase dissolved oxygen throughout the waterbody by using a compressor to force air through bottom-placed diffusers.
Depending on the size and depth of your Wisconsin pond or lake, fountains can be used for both aerating, as well as a focal point. In shallow waterbodies, where diffused aeration systems would not work properly, a pond fountain can provide enough water column and surface disruption, to increase dissolved oxygen levels.
Pond Fountains can provide many benefits other than aeration including: daytime and nighttime displays, surface tension disruption, that leaves the surface looking clear and fresh, and a pleasant sound of falling water that can screen noise from adjacent highways or lawn maintenance equipment.
Circulators create a strong, unidirectional flow of water that can eliminate stagnant water, increase atmospheric oxygen transfer and stop muck, debris and aquatic plants from collecting on beaches and water access areas. In private waters, a circulator may be mounted to a dock or to a float. However, in public waters, circulators may only be dock mounted.
In the winter, warmer water accumulates near the bottom of lakes and ponds. De-Icers force this warm water from the bottom to the surface, to create an ice-free area. As an added benefit from creating ice-free areas, habitat for fish and wildlife is enhanced. Atmospheric oxygen transfer can take place and wildlife are provided with a clear entry and exit point. De-Icers are most commonly used around permanent piers and docks to prevent ice damage.
