Solar Pond Aeration FAQs
Will a solar pond aeration systems run at night?
Our patented battery backup systems are the ONLY solar pond aeration system that can operate day and night for as long as 20 hours. Other aeration systems on the market can only run while the sun is shining.
When I install an aeration system, can I expect any initial negative impact on water quality?
When an aeration system is initially installed there will be a period where the aerator will draw up large amounts of poor-quality water and some organic debris from the bottom that can have an impact on the water quality.
It will increase the oxygen demand and potentially raise the phosphorus and nitrogen levels for a short period of time. This is a critical time for the lake, but as long as the aeration system is running it will be able to combat these issues and in time the lake will turn around.
Do I need an aeration system for my pond or lake?
Most ponds and lakes can benefit from the addition of aeration. After many years of research, we believe aeration to be the foundation for improving and maintaining proper water quality in ponds and lakes. Lake bed aeration acts to increase dissolved oxygen levels while eliminating water stratification.
How long does a solar aerator take to clear a pond?
Changes take place in your pond immediately after starting up an aeration system, no matter if it is electric or solar. However, in typical situations, it takes about 6 weeks to actually see improvements.
During winter, does the hole in the ice created by aeration systems pose a risk to people/animals going out on the ice?
Most pond and lakes that are using an aeration system in the winter, are trying to help the aquatic environment (beneath the ice); increase water quality for the fish and the desirable aquatic plants, and/or decrease sludge. Never try and walk on the ice when you see this. It is potentially hazardous because the ice is weak and you may fall thru. A warning sign may be required by local regulations.
When Install an Aeration System, Can I Expect Any Initial Negative Impact on Water Quality?
When an aeration system is initially installed, there will be a period of time where the aerator will draw up large amounts of poor-quality water and some organic debris from the bottom that can have an impact on the water quality. It will increase the oxygen demand and potentially raise the phosphorus and nitrogen levels for a short period of time. This is a critical time for the lake, but as long as the aeration system is running, it will be able to combat these issues and, in time, the lake will turn around.
How Does A Solar Pond Aerator Work?
There are rural ponds and lakes that do not have any access to electricity. A solar powered aerator has the ability to operate completely on battery power. Solar Aerators for ponds and lakes will require the sun's rays and energy, in order to efficiently aerate the body of water.
Are Solar Pond Aerators Any Good?
There are various aerating systems that will aerate your water environment. However, solar aeration is one of the best methods. Solar aerators for ponds are, ultimately, safer for our environment. A solar aerating process will properly aerate your body of water 24/7, even on the cloudy days. Our solar pond aerators are going to guarantee a variety of benefits, ensuring you a healthy and clean aquatic atmosphere.
