Where a visual aesthetic is not desired, diffused aeration systems are, by far, the most efficient method of aerating a pond.  These simple systems utilize an inverted plume of bubbles to "lift" water up and out of the way.  The "lifted" water is then replaced with surrounding water creating a circulating flow.  The limiting factor for this type of system is water depth

Diffused aeration systems:

  • have no visual aesthetic (see floating fountains)

  • very low operating costs

  • no electrical components in the water

  • has limited efficiency in shallow water (less than 4 feet deep). 

  • very few moving parts

  • diffusers do not need to be removed for winterization.


Our factory trained staff can guide you through every phase of an aeration project:

  • system specification and design

  • electrical sizing and permitting

  • pad / conduit installation

  • trenching

  • in-water installation
