Bottom Aeration Systems enable water to remain open throughout the winter to reduce carbon monoxide build-up and reduce fish kill.
Benefits of Winter Aeration
- Bottom aeration degasses carbon monoxide preventing fish kill.
- Keep water open for swans, geese and ducks throughout winter. Open water provides safety from coyotes and foxes looking for a winter meal.
- Get rid of phosphates and decompose sludge, which reduces the nutrients for next year’s algae growth, thus improving water quality.
- Provide an open water edge for horse or cattle throughout winter.
A 2680 Aeration System is built for this type of service, as it offers a high air volume and air pressure of 10-15 PSI depending on the depth.
