Every process that happens in the pond is dependent on oxygen. This is especially important at night when plants are not converting sunlight into oxygen. Dissolved oxygen levels are also generally lower in warmer water temperatures. Pond aerators oxygenate your pond, helping all biological processes and create a more stable environment, resulting in healthier fish and plants. Aeration is also very important during winter months in colder climates, as aeration helps to keep a small hole open in the surface of the pond to aid in degassing.
Aquascape professional-grade aeration system is designed to help improve water circulation and increase oxygen throughout the pond. The Pond Aerator PRO system can also be used during the winter months where the bubbles created at the surface will keep a small hole open in the ice for oxygenation and the removal of possible harmful gases from the water.

|Pond Aerator Application|
The 2-outlet and 4-outlet aerator pump should be placed in an indoor location dry and free from airborne dust and debris. If you notice that your pump is losing air pressure or simply doesn't work as well as when you purchased it, a simple, inexpensive renew kit is available. After installing the renew kit your pond aerator should be as good as new.
Pond Aerators can also be used during the winter months where the bubbles created at the surface can help keep a small hole open in the ice for oxygenation.
Remember to not place the air diffusers on the bottom of the pond during the winter, which may disrupt the natural thermocline found in the deeper portions of the pond where the fish are overwintering. Instead place the air diffusers about 1 to 1 1/2 ft. below the surface of the water.
