Residential property owners who have a pond constructed or who have bought acreage with a pond that has turned swampy may not want to change the water’s environment in any way. They assume that leaving the water features in the hands of Mother Nature is best. Later, they are troubled when they see dead fish, clouds of mosquitoes, and algae blooms. Now, they’ll learn the importance of providing oxygen for the pond or swamp with equipment from a company such as living water aeration.
Water quality problems occur when there is not enough oxygen present to sustain life. Phosphorous levels increase and plants release more carbon dioxide. The balance of alkaline and acid, known as pH balance, is disrupted. Whether the property owners want the water feature on their land for a scenic view, swimming, fishing, or providing a haven for wildlife, aeration is essential.
