What is the Best Way to Aerate

There are two main ways to aerate your ponds, lakes or dugouts…

By Surface or Diffused Aeration

Surface Aeration - are systems that come in the form of Fountains or Jets and are primarily used to produce surface level oxygen in the water. They splash the surface and help control top level algae and weeds, they do not aerate down to the bottom. This type of aeration looks attractive but as research indicates, is one of the most ineffective ways to keep your water healthy. Oxygen never gets to the bottom of the water where it is needed to organically break down the sludge that constantly enters the water and sinks down.

Diffused Aeration – are systems where air is pumped into the water and through air diffusers that lie at the bottom of the pond, lake, or dugout. This achieves total pond aeration from the bottom to the top regardless of the depth of the water. These systems are both more effective and economical, for it requires far less energy to push air in a diffused aeration system than it does pushing water through fountains or jets.

By harnessing the wind you can oxygenate and de-stratify your pond. Our “Superior” line of Windmills has been redesigned to provide ample supplemental oxygen levels to improve the health of your ponds, lakes, dugouts or reservoirs. Ideally suited for areas needing aeration without electricity nearby and can be located hundreds of feet away from the water's edge, if necessary to catch more wind.

Superior Windmill Aeration systems will:

  • Help prevent algae and weed growth
  • Help prevent water discoloration
  • Eliminate thermal stratification
  • Reduce the Biological Oxygen demand
  • Reduce the sedimentation rate causing a build up of sludge and muck
  • Improve water clarity and cleanliness
  • Reduce chemical use and costs of chemicals
  • Reduce overall costs of maintaining a healthy pond, lake, dugout or reservoir.
  • Eliminates fish kills and promotes healthy aquatic life
  • Eliminate foul odors
  • Cost no money to operate

How to reclaim your dugout's water quality

The early spring runoff that graciously filled your dugout appeared to be clean, clear, ready-to-use water.

But now, plants and/or algae have taken over your dugout and seem unwilling to give back the fresh water you had just a short time ago. If that's your situation, don't despair because you can reclaim your dugout.

What you might not realize is that spring runoff also contained a fresh supply of nutrients. If your dugout water is replenished every year by runoff, your dugout is likely getting an overdose of nutrients [...]
