What is pond aeration? Why is it important?
Aeration is the process of adding oxygen to the water which is one of the most important factors aiding in the organic breakdown of decaying vegetation and other sources of nutrients in the pond.
Without getting overly technical, there are two types of decomposition: aerobic (with oxygen) and anaerobic (without oxygen). Often, the end products of anaerobic decomposition are organic compounds, including alcohols and organic acids, which result in a foul odor (that mucky pond smell).
Though nature itself provides sufficient oxygen, the addition of nutrients introduced to the pond from runoff, road/construction dust, grass clippings, and leaves from nearby trees, increases the demand for oxygen. If the demand for more oxygen isn’t met, it often results in fish kills, algae blooms, foul odors, and the buildup of stagnant vegetation.
In short, by facilitating the oxygenation of the water, you’re aiding in the health of your pond which adds enjoyment, a clean drinking supply for livestock, and a healthy environment for fish and other aquatic life without the addition of harsh chemicals.
