Tri-County Aquatics™ has been selling, installing and servicing water aeration systems for many years. Water aeration is on the cutting edge of aquatic management techniques. Aeration systems work by releasing oxygen into a water body and are an important tool in reviving and stabilizing the water body’s eco-system. Dissolved oxygen (D.O.) is the single most important factor pertaining to water quality. Fish and many other aquatic organisms depend on oxygen for survival. Under natural conditions, oxygen is produced from surface air diffusion, wind, and made by plants, but this is not the case in every water body. With the introduction of an aeration system, an increased amount of oxygen is mechanically diffused into the water column. Increased D.O. levels in a water body promote the natural growth of organisms that act as a food source for fish, decreasing competition in a fish population, and increasing the habitable areas for fish. Another major benefit that an aeration system can provide is the increase of water clarity and the reduction of organic ‘muck’ buildup on the bottom of a water body.
Advantages of Aeration
Aeration provides oxygenated water for your fish, it also works to turn the bottom of your pond into a massive biofilter, fostering large populations of beneficial bacteria that create a healthier aquatic ecosystem.
