Our Lake and Pond Aeration Services
Smith Creek Fish Farm maintains healthy aquatic ecosystems to delight everyone who enjoys stocking lakes and ponds. Pond aeration service is a standard method for achieving this purpose. Floating fountains diffused, solar, and windmill aerators are excellent for increasing oxygen circulation and producing a pleasant aquatic environment.
The advantages of having a well-oxygenated water body are numerous. Dissolved oxygen promotes the growth of beneficial fish and microorganisms, removes toxins, increases water clarity, reduces algae, sludge, and foul smells, and aids in lowering organic contaminants.

Submerged aerators use a weather-protected on-shore compressor to push air via a subsurface tube, releasing bubbles from the lake or pond's bottom. The low-oxygen water from the bottom is carried to the top by the bubbles, where it mixes with ambient oxygen before sinking back to the bottom—continuous vertical mixing increases oxygen concentrations throughout the waterbody, especially in deeper areas.
Although all lakes and ponds can benefit from aeration, many are where electricity can’t power the equipment. Solar-powered systems may be used in more distant aquatic areas, such as those on private estates, ranches, and golf courses, to reap the benefits of enhanced oxygen and circulation. Solar-powered lake aerator installation also saves cost on utility bills.
Solar aeration is the perfect solution for water bodies without access to electricity.
The windmill aerator's primary source of propulsion is, as you might assume, the wind. These aerating systems can be comparable to wind turbines that generate electricity. The aeration windmill creates power for the aerating system when the wind impacts the blades and causes them to rotate. The rotor drives the movement of the fan head's blades, which operate an air compressor coupled to the windmill head. The compressed air is then sent through the airline to diffusers to aerate your pond.
Like all other parts of your lake or pond, your aeration system requires routine maintenance to maintain it at peak performance.
