Is Aeration necessary at this time of year?

Aeration is a very crucial element in any pond all of the time. Every living thing in the pond requires a constant supply of oxygen and every process that happens in the pond is dependent on oxygen. The fish, plants and even the beneficial bacteria need oxygen.

Aeration is important:

  • At Night

    This is when plants are not converting CO2 into oxygen.

  • In Winter

    During winter months in colder climates it helps to keep a small hole open in the surface of the pond to aid in degassing. It also keeps the water from getting too low in oxygen.

  • In Summer

    During winter months in colder climates it helps to keep a small hole open in the surface of the pond to aid in degassing. It also keeps the water from getting too low in oxygen.

An Air Pump will supply aeration necessary for your pond all day and all year long. Therefore having an air pump in continuous operation will always be beneficial for your pond.
